Four days until Block Party 2009

Four days until Block Party 2009

Are you ready for Block Party 2009? We're four days away from the big event, and all of us here at SOE have kicked it into high gear to prepare for the best Block Party yet!

While you wait patiently (or impatiently..."IS IT TIME YET??") we wanted to share some goodies with you!

First off, here's a little sneak peek at a few of the things you will find at Block Party this year:

  • Special Vendors - Our friends from Gunnar Optiks will be here with their party bus, and Bigfoot Networks will be hanging out to meet everyone, along with our own Station Store.
  • Building Tours - Get a look at the inner workings of the SOE offices. See where the magic happens, and what it takes to make it happen.
  • Character Meet & Greet - Meet Firiona Vie from EQ, Antonia Bayle from EQII, and Chatdy and Robgoblin from Free Realms!
  • Demo Kiosks - See demos and meet the dev teams of several of our games, including an exclusive look at Kung Fu Hustle.
  • Raffles and Giveaways - It's Comic-Con! We wouldn't let you go away empty handed, would we??
  • Food, music, fun and more! - Well, that's pretty self-explanatory, isn't it?

Now taking RSVPs!

We'll be uploading our pictures to the Block Party Flickr group, and invite you to join us by submitting your pictures there, too.

Pimp Your PC

We have a new Block Party logo this year, and we think it's pretty awesome. Now you, too, can decorate your desktop while you wait for the big day...or afterwards, to remember how much fun you had!
