I’ll be in LA next weekend…

Unfortunately, I won’t be at E3. But I will be doing video game stuff.

Back in March, my favorite co-op game, Payday 2, had a Spring Break event, and part of the event was the chance for 10 players to win a trip to LA to meet the developers if you entered on Twitter with a specific hashtag. Yesterday I got a message from their Twitter account saying that they wanted me to follow them so they could send me a message, with the same hashtag. Turns out, I won one of the trips!

Saturday night, they’re having a concert at House of Blues, and Sunday is dinner with the developers. I have to admit I’m both excited and nervous. I’ve never been to LA, and I’ll be pretty much on my own. I mean, I’m sure there will be handlers, but I have no idea what to expect. The concert is likely to feature the music of Simon Viklund, who composes all the music for the game; he’s very talented and it should be fun. But I tend toward social anxiety, so this is really taking me out of my comfort zone.

But as one of my friends pointed out, it’ll be an adventure!
