Events of 2017


First post of 2017! This year, I’m driven to do a lot more traveling! Last year, I was able to do 4 events – PAX South, PAX East, RTX 2016 & TwitchCon. It was a good year for conventions.

I’d love to share with you the events I have lined up for this year!

  • January: PAX South 2017 – This convention is already 2 weeks away! It’s definitely smaller than the other PAX events but it’s nice to start the year off with it! Not to mention, January is my birthday month so I’ll able to spend some time with friends attending this event!
  • February: Twitch Texas Meet-up – This would be my first attendance to a Twitch Texas meet up! I could never go in the past because of my work schedule but now it’s pretty flexible for me to catch one.
  • March: PAX East & SXSW Gaming 2017 – Last year I did a spontaneous trip to Boston for PAX East. It was one of my favorite trips that I did alone – It was a very interesting experience! I’m happy to attend this year again. Every year, Austin holds a long week festival known as SXSW – I love attending the Gaming Expo they hold!
  • April: Dreamhack Austin 2017 – I had to miss out last year because of my job at the time – Definitely excited for this event this year!
  • May: Florida Bachelorette Party & Trip – One of my best friends is getting married so they are hosting a surprise bachelorette party — I love the fact that she doesn’t know about it and we’ll be surprising her when we arrive! If the trip ends up being to expensive for me to attend, I can always fall back on a New Found Glory concert this month.
  • June: Best Friends Wedding & Twitch Texas Meet-Up – The wedding will be at the beginning of the month! I’m excited to attend & see my best friend marry her best friend of 10 years. Twitch Texas will also be hosting another Austin meet up.
  • July: RTX 2017 & Warped Tour 2017– One of my favorite conventions to attend as press every year! Such an amazing community. I haven’t attend a Warped Tour since 2011 – It would be nice to check out a show again. Just like the old days…
  • August: No event. Save up money. Maybe plan a meet up?
  • September: PAX West 2017 – The dates haven’t been confirmed. I would love to go back to Seattle again! I feel in love with that city so fast.
  • October: TwitchCon 2017 – I’m going to assume this year TwitchCon will be around October because that’s when it was last year – Hands down, this was a great convention to goto last year. I LOVED seeing a bunch of people from the Twitch community.
  • November: No event. Save up money.
  • December: No event. Save up money.

This is going to be a very busy year if I’m able to attend a good amount of these events! The dream would be to go to all of them, of course! How’s your year looking? Hopefully I can bump into a few of you guys around these events!

RTX 2016 Weekend Recap


This year, RTX 2016 fell on July 1st-3rd in Austin, TX. The event brought in 60,000+ attendees and had many new additions to see at the convention! Especially mixing in SGC to the event this year!

I was able to talk to a lot of great companies but didn’t focus on doing full on interviews this year. I really wanted to enjoy my experience at the same time of talking to some people in the industry.

RTX 2016 Panels


Because of time, I wasn’t able to see as many panels as I would like this year at RTX. With my media badge, I was still able to connect and interact with people from the gaming industry which is something I love to do.

recap-rtx02
I managed to attend two panels during the event. It amazed me that at each panel I attended, there was 3500+ attendees! It just shows you how big of a community RTX really is.

The first panel I attended was the Achievement Hunter panel – I’ve been to their panel the past 2 years attending RTX… Never fails to make me laugh so hard! I love those guys! I wasn’t at a good angle to record some footage but they did live stream the panel.

The second panel I attended was “Million Dollars, But…” based on their segment on YouTube. Currently, it’s one of my favorite segments they do since it can turn so ridiculous. I find myself always asking odd questions and get curious for other peoples reactions so this game really intrigues me.

I ended my panel experience with meeting Burnie Burns and having him sign my Million Dollars, But… game I purchased earlier that day!

I hope posting the videos will also give you many reasons to laugh with all the great content they shared – Next year, I will be prepared to attend more panels! Thanks again for all the laughs during these RTX!

RTX 2015


RTX 2015 this year was yet again, another great one! I decided to take my role this year as more of a convention-goer than a busy-blogger needed to cover a bunch of media things.

Although I was accepted as media of the press, I really wanted to go in this year by just exploring around the convention and meeting/talking to some of the people there.
