Welp, I did it. I finally got a hotel price that I could more than live with so I went and registered for origins. I picked up the hotel at priceline and I'll be paying something like 31 dollars a night including taxes and service charges and whatever. The hotel is only 10 minutes or so from the convention center and seems like it'll be just one of those generic economy rooms. I also ended up registering for quite a few events while I was at it.

Like always, I registered for way too many things probaly...but I'm always worried that if I don't sign up for everything I'll get there and find it full. The money lost if I decide to skip anything shouldn't be that bad. It's only 1.50 or so for a hour game if I recall.

I was also happy that it seems they caught the columbus sniper. It means that I won't have to worry about being shot in the face while there for the convention. I mean, really, being in ohio is painful enough isn't it? You shouldn't have to add that extra burden of possibily being shot.
