Matt and I got to chat a bit about the battletech experience and he seems to be hooked. He wants to make it back there as often as possible whenever there are events. I'm a little more reserved in my first impression, but that might have something to do with the prevaling nausea and vomiting. I find that tends to distort your impression of new experiences.
On a sidenote, that taping the mouth thing didn't seem to work out all that well. I felt like I about exploded my entire head open when I had to cough a couple times. It felt like my sinuses were all about to pop like a balloon. A quite unpleasant feeling.
