My 3-day PAX badge was graciously provided by the awesome folks at Runic Games, the developers of Torchlight 2. I wrote ten haikus to them on Twitter to enter a contest where they were giving away twenty (!) badges, and persistence with a penchant for panache proved prosperous!
I linked up with community manager Wonder Russell (in the pic with me) to get my pass after my flight touched down, and made sure to hit up the TL2 booth the first day to thank her again! She replied, “You wrote ten haikus, I read those and was like how can this guy NOT win?”So thank you, Runic. I purchased the game, and can now finally say that:
TL2 Haiku: Hack and slash looting / Will never be quite the same / With Torchlight 2 out #TL2PAX
