Community! Here's what we're doing at PAX East 2012

PAX East 2012 is this week! Can you believe it? As in years past, Dtoiders from around the world are converging on the mecca of geekdom in Boston for three days of gaming, booze and partying. And all because videogames! 

We have some meetups planned for each night, all of which are detailed below. Be sure to join our Google Group or follow me on Twitter so you know what's going on/if plans change!

Thursday night:

Rock Band Night / Scott Pilgrim vs The World party!

Harmonix is kicking things off big with their little party at The Brattle. Starting at 6PM, you can go watch Scott Pilgrim vs The World, and then at 9PM join the Harmonix crew for some Rock Band action. A combo ticket for both events will cost you $15 to enter; Rock Band Night alone is $7.

For those wanting to do something a little closer to the convention center can come join up with the Destructoid crew at MJ O'Connors Irish Pub starting at 8PM. The pub is located in the Westin Waterfront Hotel, right next the Boston Convention Center.

Friday night:

Today's the day we meet up for the regular group photo! We'll be meeting up at 425 Summer St, on the steps just outside of MJ O'Connors Bar at 3:30PM! Be sure to wear a Destructoid shirt this day!

We've teamed up with Namco Bandai's Shifty Look for the Namco Bandai Games Presents ShiftyLook X Destructoid Chicken and Waffles party! The party will be held in the Westin's Commonwealth Ballroom on Friday, April 6 from 7PM to 9:30PM.

This party is open to all ages, so that means no alcohol. What you will get is fine Southern food, a chance to play Rocket Fox on the iPad, and swag. There's a Facebook event page you can take a look at, but note that RSVPing on the page won't guarantee you access.

Jonathan Holmes, Max Scoville, Tony Ponce myself and a slew of other Destructoid personalities will be at the party, plus some folks from Namco Bandai as well! (Bonus: Dress up super-fancy for extra entertainment!)

Other than that, there's a World of Tanks party from 9PM to 2AM. Go check out the official Facebook page to see more details on where the party is at, and to find out how you can get in.

Saturday night:

Elephant and Castle karaoke night of doom! A bunch of Dtoiders went here last year and the stories I heard were LEGENDARY. So we're making this the official place to be, starting at 9PM!

Sunday night:

Join us as we say our goodbyes at the Atlantic Beer Gardens, just a few blocks away from the convention center. Meetup is at 7PM!

Yes, it's essentially a trace job, but this is my first piece of pixel art: [img]http://i.imgur.com/N0zmHiL.png[/img]

A new fun game for iOS and Android devices. Featuring a beautiful minimalistic design and an easy gesture based interface. Hope you'll like it. [url] https://itunes.apple.com/app/id1022015201[/url] [img]http://bit.ly/1EtWjdJ[/img]

Apologies for the lack of Experience Points lately! I'm taking a short break from writing them, but don't worry. They'll be back soon enough!

Am I the only one excited to play the Forza Motorsport 6 demo?

Adventure games are a big part of the indie scene, but there's a reason their popularity plummeted as graphics evolved. This clicking on everything, just in case, nonsense is for the birds. 90s birds, but birds.

Spotted some "The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3" (1989) DVDs in a store. Hearing music and sound effects from the game is more amusing than it should be - although the running shrill gets old quickly.

Diablo 3 patch 2.3.0 equals more grinding. Good.

Funny coincidence: Last week saw the release of Until Dawn, which talked about a Canadian tribe of Native Americans called the Cree,and last night a Cree woman (Ms. Canada) won the Ms. Universe contest. Butterfly Effect updated.

If I was to play through the NES library, besides being madness, what order do I do it? Alphabetically or Release date-wise? Whats the Dtoid universe think?

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...

I have no idea what this game is about but if this isn't the best goddamn cover art ever, I don't know what is. [url=http://imgur.com/3yw3G8S][img]http://i.imgur.com/3yw3G8S.jpg[/img][/url]
