#I WAS OKAY WITH NOT GOING TO COMIC CON
#BUT NOW I KNOW I MISSED OUT ON PILOTING A JAEGER
#AND I AM UPSET
I got to pilot a jaeger at comic con and I had them make this badge for me because that’s the kind of nerd trash I am
Wait. Hold the phone. What do you mean you got to pilot a Jaeger?
One of the big things at some of the booths this year was interactive Oculus Rift experiences—At the Legendary Booth, you could sit in a chair and wear a headset and earphones and you would be immersed inside of a Jaeger—you could turn your head and move your body to look around and interact with what you were seeing, which included a pilot beside you talking you through the drift before a kaiju appears and attacks you and it was SO AMAZING I seriously screamed at one point.
They also had this at the Sleepy Hollow experience, where you were placed inside the cemetery while Ichabod warns you of danger and then runs away again like a jerk and then you’re attacked by the Headless Horseman and THAT is terrifying.
The one I didn’t get to do was the one at Game of Thrones, since the wait was always nuts, but apparently there it put you right on the edge of the wall, while cold air actually blew on you and stuff and apparently THAT was super terrifying to a lot of people too. I am sooo bummed I didn’t get to do that one D:
instead of calling someone a “grammar nazi”, why not try:
- word nerd
- syntax whiplash
- fuckin geek
- speech preacher
- punctuate infatuate-er
- ~Lord English~
- grAMMAR SLAMMER
Bless that one person in every group that is like “keep going, I’m listening” and encourages you to finish your story even when everyone else is talking over you.
