It's a very strange thing indeed, when you meet your peeps, that you have been following for so long. Every other voice is instantly recognised, without ever setting eyes on them.
I'm not sure why, if it was a case of jet-lag, pure excitement or just a case of being so over whelmed by the event. But from that Sunday night on, I turned from my normal self into a gibbering wreck.
After all, sites like Darth Hater, MER, and ToroCast, is the sole reason this site started up in the first place. This was my place to keep all the great info these sites gave us over time. To meet them, and the many others that I now follow, was as memorable as the SWTOUR event its self.
For the first time, I had people around me that had the same passion that I have about a game called TOR. It's a very nice thing indeed, when you can let that little nerd out of its box, and share it with these great people face to face.
One thing is clear, that each and every site, has a different way of following the game. We share are passion in totally different way also. It was a moment that I will never forget.
As for David Bass and Stephen Reid, they made us feel so welcome, and meeting others from the BioWare team, was the icing on an already mammoth cake. Not sure if it was the lure of fee food, that made them turn out in there masses, or something else. But all I can say is, thank you all, for making our time in Austin, something that will stay with me for a life time.
