Pokket had the chance to attend last weekend's PAX Prime in Seattle and has some highlights of her adventures there to share. Keep reading and then share your thoughts in the comments.

I think it goes without saying that the Firefall booth was definitely one that was hard to miss. Last year it was their extreme amount of banner placement, but this time around it was their ginormous booth, amazing statue, and of course their paid cosplayers. Every time I had to go through that hall to get to the other, I had to walk through their booth. I will admit they definitely made a smart placement decision.

Pokket,

 

Usually I find your stuff entertaining.  Lately, however, I'm getting distracted by a word you repeat over and over.  It reminds me of the line from The Princess Bride; "You use that word a lot.  I do not think it means what you think it means."  Its also starting to make me wonder about your objectivity when it comes to your reviews.

 

I'm not a hater and I'm no English teacher, but you've used the word "amazing" enough.  It seems like you use that word to describe everything.  While you did throw in an "astounding" for spice, after reading your article all I got was everything at PAX was "amazing".  In the end your use of "amazing" distracted me from the theme of  your article and I simply started counting the number of times you wrote "amazing".  "Amazing" is on the verge of becoming your catch phrase.  It has become like that Seinfeld episode where the doctor describes everything as "Breathtaking". 

 

In the future please try to use an "astonishing" or an "impressive" or an "electrifying" or an "extraordinary" or an "absorbing" or an "arresting" or an "exciting".  A quick flip through the thesaurus (that's not a type of dinosaur, kids) would make your writing much more "engrossing".

 

Glad you had an amazing time at PAX.

 

Many a small thing has been made large by the right kind of advertising.

I'm still hoping for a video of PAX Pokket impressions with enough hand motions to cast an epic spell upon the world. It's just not as amazing to read about it in an article. (Did I use it right?)

I think the grammar police are just getting bored of the spelling and punctuation QQing. I'm impressed that one word can trigger a 3 paragraph complaint though. I need to use amazing more often.

The man has a point, If everything is "Amazing" How do you describe something that really does stand out from the crowd?

My comment generated more responses than the article?  Now THAT is amazing.

 

I'm not the grammar police (I think I would be more properly classed as the "vocabulary police") and I regularly check out Pokket's reviews because I think on the whole she does a good job and reviews things like a gamer instead of a developer or designer.  I just thought I'd point out that reusing a word like "amazing" becomes distracting.  That's a shame because, as I said before, I think Pokket does good work.

 

I didn't question anyone's ancestrory or imply they were stupid.  I just offered some  constructive criticism, but I guess in today's society anyone who doesn't think something is perfect is just a "hater".

 

In any event we know who the real culprit is anway, right Bill?

 

Thank you to everyone for helping me make the point though.

Where did you get all that from? lol People get so serious here sometimes.

 

edit: .. and it's spelled 'ancestry', while we're on the topic of constructive criticism. :)
