Amongst other people who write mainstream news articles, the above sites were in attendance to the party. In spite of recent events, Nerf does in fact reach out to fan sites and they do in fact treat them pretty well.
Now, my gallery (I also updated to include some new “Foamme Fatales” from the party) –
I’ll post some additional videos up (I had my GoPro chest camera on for as long as the battery would hold out; I’ll see what came of it) once they’re done, but just wanted to make some quick notes:
Nerf really knows how to throw a party
Nerf N-Strike Elite Hailfire ranges are pretty awesome for a flywheel. Bandoliers are a necessity, and I’m working on a technique to allow easy dual-wiellding. The magwell rack did pretty well in letting me run and the Hailfire is definitely more mobile than a Vulcan. Mixing and matching the drums and mags was fun. It’s a semiauto blaster, but it really feels way more reliable than a Barricade. I suggest giving it a try when it’s released, I know I will. One thing I would say is, you can’t really use a sidearm when you have it. At full capacity, the blaster bangs around a lot if you try to run with it at your side. You really need to carry it in your hands the whole time you have it. Nerf groups who utilize blasters as shields are going to have to reevaluate their rulesets though, as this thing is a good size for that house rule.
The Nerf Vortex Pyragon is fantastic. Rogue fell in love with it. I love the way the drum loads, and the rate of fire on it is incredible.
The licensed Nerf materials rock pretty hard. The sunglasses were fantastic, and I can’t wait to try out my earbuds 🙂
NERF FIREVISION. Seriously, everyone needs to have a look at that when it’s out. I will most certainly hope to get some samples to work with, but it’s a really interesting mechanic to utilize playing sports in low light.
It’s a little rough having to say “’til next year” to the fellow bloggers – it’s so much fun talking nothing but Nerf with these like-minded individuals.
Ok, I’ll have more to say when I go back over the vids. I’m finally well-rested (2 red-eye flights in 2 days makes for a tired Vas) and I’ll go over more when I review what I shot.
