Dtoid's community meetup plans for PAX Prime 2013!

3:50 PM on 08.31.2013 // mrandydixon

Party every day

PAX Prime 2013 is just three weeks away RIGHT NOW HOLY SHIT! As always, there will be a ton of games to see and play and panels and parties to attend, and we've listed the very best of them right here for your bookmarking convenience!

We've got meet-ups planned for just about every night, a panel on Sunday at 2 PM, a karaoke party Sunday night, and tons more fun stuff to do every day during and after the show. Hit the jump to see what we're up to!


Join the Dtoid staff and community for some pre-PAX drinking and arcading at Gameworks! This is a great opportunity to meet new Dtoiders (name tags provided) and rekindle old flames, so plan on showing up about 9 PM if you want to be in pictures like the one you see above! (You know you do.)

This year's meetup is sponsored in part by LOST SAGA, the crazy fun, free-to-play fighting MMO where players get to battle as iconic arcade characters and build their world with friends, Minecraft-style. It's going to be awesome, so register here (for free) right now for a chance to win extra drink tickets, and plan to show up early; the first 200 people through the door get a free LOST SAGA bag! (Click here for more details.)


Head on over to Elephant & Castle in downtown Seattle to share your PAX Day One stories with other Dtoiders! People will be rolling in all night long, but 9 PM is a good time to arrive to begin the festivities.


There's nothing "official" planned for Saturn's day, so your best bet is to join the Dtoid PAX GroupMe to see what everyone is up to and plan something fun yourselves! You can do it!


Strap on your big boy pants, because Sunday is our biggest day of the weekend!

First, Destructoid's annual PAX Prime panel will be at 2 PM in the Pegasus Theater. Niero, Dale, Hamza, Jim, and Holmes will reminisce on the life of a videogame blogger over the last seven years or so, and there will be a HUGE announcement to boot. You best be there!

Oh, and be sure to wear your Dtoid shirts when you show up, as we'll be having the annual group photo immediately following the panel! We're taking the picture in the auditorium this year, so attending the panel is a must if you want to be immortalized on film!

After the dust has settled, head on over to Barboza at 9 PM for a Dtoid karaoke party! Jonathan Holmes will be cosplaying as Caesar and MC-ing the event, so you won't want to miss this for the world! Check out this post for all the details (or click here to RSVP on Facebook).


During the day, join our Dtoid.TV team for their panel at 3 PM in the Kraken Theater, and at night, meet up with the staff and community for an evening of tearful goodbyes at Rock Bottom. Plan to arrive at 8 PM, but be warned: you'll never want to leave :'(


Plans can change at any moment, so it's always a good idea to follow some of the staff and community team on Twitter for updates: Mr Andy Dixon, Beccy Caine, Conor Elsea, Andrew Benton, Dale North, Hamza Aziz, Conrad Zimmerman, Jordan Devore, and Niero will keep you in the loop. Keep in mind that it's always a good idea to bring cash to any of the venues listed above for easy drinking!

Also, be sure to join our Google Group to keep up to date with any plans at the show. And once you do, go sign up to wear the Mr Destructoid helmet on the show floor -- we may even try to live-stream his shenanigans, so you'll want to be in on this!

See you guys in a couple weeks DAYS HOLY SHIT!

If I were to get Age of Empires II HD to play with you all, do you all have the DLC?

I am relieved to know Creed is a Rocky spin-off and not a feature-length documentary about the band.

Been playing Gears of War 3's campaign on Xbox One. Looks great on there, and Sam's voice actor is Chloe's voice actor in Uncharted 2/3. Hell yeah!

Community Question: With all the controversy surrounding review scores, what do you personally consider a "bad" score versus a "good" score? Is there a game in particular that was panned by critics that you nevertheless enjoyed? Or vice versa?
TheVeganGamer avatarTheVeganGamer
Finally got around to playing Diablo 3 with some friends, holy smokes! That game is rad!

Public service announcement: Marry an orphan. It makes the holidays so much easier when you don't have to deal with pain in the ass in-laws.

So... how long is it until we get the inevitable Colonial Marines or Ride to Hell: Retribution PS4/Xbox One re-releases?

you know what's not okay? scalpers with 10 copies of fire emblem fates SE on ebay for $200+. and no one is saying anything.

Fallout 4 wouldn't be Fallout with ridiculous glitches and shenanigans. Here are a few I've run into - [youtube][/youtube]

I've never earnestly went drinking before so it's cool to know I'm the slow, sleepy, impaired type.

Got to admit I didn't expect to find a mewtwo amiibo at my bookstore of all places...

My cousin found out I slept with his girlfriend and is pissed. Understandable. I am totally sick of the angry phone calls though. It reminds me so much of playing Call of Duty online. The screaming 11 year olds suck on there too.

Huh. Apparently even Japan has a Black Friday sale going on on PSN right now.

Yes, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I know that somebody has 2,625 more medallions than me. No, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I don't really care.

This fucking Bloodborne DLC, jesus. I'm on new game+, about level 90, and shit just tears my dick off. I don't know if I want to start another guy just to avoid NG+ and level him up, etc. sigh....

Wii U, top selling black friday item on Take that you anti-Wii U people.

I am pretty hyped for when I get a laptop because I'll be able to have a good enough connection to stream XbOne/soon PS4 games to it along with natively rendered Steam games. Hype!
Avoclefo avatarAvoclefo
Got a PS4 that came with SW Battlefront this week, and planning on picking up the FFX/X-2 remake. Hype is through the roof, especially for FFX. If I were to get one other game, what should it be?
