Justin Goes to Comicon: Part 2 - The Very Large Man

Another recycled post from Myspace:

So, after travelling up on the Death Bus, we finally arrived at the Con very early on Sunday morning ready for an adventure.

The booth looked amazing. Giant TV screens blasted out the trailer. And there were loads of PCs laid out for people to play on.

Bob Mull talked to us for a few minutes about the game, and then I noticed a "very large man" (VLM) playing at one of the stations. Now "large" is clearly a relative term, but this guy was ginormous, like 7ft. And he was playing with a rabid intensity and ferocity that was both heart-warming and frightening at the same time.

After that we went and explored the convention for a couple of hours. When we came back to the booth to get some additional stock footage, the VLM was still there, but on a different station, still playing.

Our paths crossed many times that day.

I got to talk to the VLM later in the day, and he was awesome. So, I'm apologizing right now for using the word "scary" at the beginning of the video. It seemed like he had a great time playing the game (all day) and it was awesome to see someone connect with the game so strongly.

So, Mr VLM, if you are out there, contact me. If you can convince me that you are you, I'll see if I can get you some WAR goodies.

Or go here if you prefer Youtube.

I don't know if you've ever heard of the N3RDcast (neenerneener.net), BUT... the Very Large Man WAS ON THERE! Talking about this! And he doesn't seem too happy, either... :/ If you want to listen to it, it's last Friday's (7/11/08) show, about 40ish minutes in. Should still be the first post on their page unless they've posted something else since then.
