yeah actually I can believe that. There was this dood who took out the stick part on his fightstick and replaced that with 4 buttons and he'd use his palm to pull off the directional inputs. Pretty crazy. Though not as crazy as the japanese guy who beat SC2 with Dreamcast's fishing rod controller on hardest difficulty.
Hideo Kojima is hosting a Metal Gear panel on Saturday. I haven't ever played a Metal Gear game before but that seems like it would be an interesting panel. I am also pretty much positive that it will be one of the busiest panel at PAX.
Dood we gotta go to that Panel! I'm a big fan, even though I get frustrated when I play those games(I'm not that stealthy). Oh I keep on forgetting to put out the panels I think would be cool to go to. Really these panels interest me, but I don't really care about going to them.
"And now we've got the following happening at the big PAX gaming convention in Seattle on the 31: an eight hour event, from 1PM PT in Seattle to 9PM at the ACT Theater (700 Union Street) that will include Final Fantasy games running on various systems from throughout series history, FF-related contests and, at 7:30PM PT (that's 11:30 AM in Tokyo on the 1st), a "special video message" from FF producer Yoshinori Kitase, director Motomu Toriyama, and art director Isamu Kamikokuryo."
