[Update: Our big party is tonight! Hope to see you there!]

PAX Prime 2014 is happening right now!

We're armed to the teeth with meetups scheduled for Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday, a badass party we're co-hosting with Square Enix, a PAX panel hosted by Dtoid staff and other industry nerds, and more hugs than you can shake a hug stick at. (No, not that hug stick.) We've also got a PAX Google Group you can join to canoodle with fellow convention goers, avatars in need of adoption, plus you can sign up to wear the Mr Destructoid helmet on the show floor (and earn yourself a Forums badge in the process)!

Check it out! And for general tips on surviving PAX, click here!

THURSDAY

Join the Dtoid staff and community for some pre-PAX drinking and arcading at Gameworks (1511 7th Ave)! This is a great opportunity to meet new Dtoiders (name tags provided) and rekindle old flames, so plan on showing up about 8pm to maximize your fun.

FRIDAY

Destructoid is teaming up with our friends at Square Enix Montréal and Unity to throw a Hitman: Sniper party! You'll have a chance to play Hitman: Sniper before its release, plus compete to get your face and name added into the game as a villain for Agent 47 to eliminate. Awesome.

Other perks include prizes from Razer, collectibles, and free drinks for the first 200 people through the door. Plus we'll have live music by RAY.VS, Grimecraft, and Sabrepulse!

So head on down to the Cavern Club on the second floor of the Hard Rock Cafe (116 Pike St) at 8pm to join in the fun. Don't forget to RSVP!

SATURDAY

There's nothing "official" planned for Saturn's day, so your best bet is to join the Dtoid Google Group to see what everyone is up to. Who knows, maybe you'll even plan something fun yourselves! You can do it!

SUNDAY

Our annual panel will be at 11am in the Sasquatch Theater. This year we're hosting a panel that's more focused on the videogame industry as a whole instead of just talking about us and whatever is going on with the site. So join us for "Video Games Are Stupid: The Inherent Silliness of the Medium." 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! And later that night, we'll be meeting up at Elephant & Castle (1415 5th Ave) for drinks and the like. Plan to be there about 8pm!

MONDAY

The day of tears :'( Monday means sad goodbyes to friends you don't see nearly enough, and as always, we'll be meeting up at Rock Bottom (1333 Fifth Ave) about 8pm. I won't be there this year, so be sure to hug everyone for me. Yes, every one of you must hug every other one of you. Because I said so.

----------

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, Andrew Benton, Hamza Aziz, and Niero will keep you in the loop. Also, be sure to join our Google Group, adopt some community avatars, and sign up to wear the Mr Destructoid helmet on the show floor!

See you all soon!

I've been listening to the live stream of the phone call with the remaining militia jackasses in Oregon all morning and its the saddest, funniest thing I've heard in a while.

Next South Park RPG is releasing in the first fiscal year of 2017, apparently. It'll probably be fractured but whole. Can't wait! D':

Waaaait a minute... From a design standpoint.. Wouldn't a bodysuit look better with shoes/boots, thus .GASP. precluding bare feet? Say it aint so! :'''(

Hey guys, there's a new episode of PStoid up. You should go listen to it, I hear Phil takes his shirt off. I mean, it's a podcast so you can't see it. But you can IMAGINE it!

Yesterday, I brought a banana with me to my job for my lunch break. Some yokel must have swiped it, for I never saw it again, nor got to eat it. My response when: [img]http://i.imgur.com/wrZt8SO.png[/img]

"At launch, playing through most of the single player content will give you enough Fight Money to get Alex for free!" Will it be possible to earn enough FC by April for the next character DLC? I'm guessing not.

Right, looking for advice. Just redeemed four old XCOM games from a humble bundle a few years back, so I wanted advice on which one I should give a looksie to first. Got 5 choices, kind of thinking terror from the deep or apocalypse. Any suggestions?

Never be first to avert your eyes when locked in a staring contest with a cat. You must push through the pain if you ever wish to become truly whole, to win this eternal conflict of wills. Bonus XP is awarded on Thursdays!

I have basic knowledge of two other languages (with certificates to prove so) and I decided today that soon I shall be fluent in both. One at a time though.

If you had to pick one: Firewatch, Not a Hero, or Layers of Fear?

I'm soooo glad that they kept the gyroscope controls intact with Gravity Rush Remastered, and that they work well. First Dual Shock 4 game to ever use them well. If you turned them off in options, you're really missing out. Helps you fine tune aim.

Alone With the Psychopath (2014) - I wrote this song after being inspired by the Epic Rap Battle of History between Jack the Ripper and Lecter. I think it sounds neat, and doesn't rip off too much from the song that inspired it =p

Tell me who downvoted my smash 4 opinion or the cat gets it. I'm not joking around.

Is that new digimon game any good or no? I know there's the review but I'd like feedback from a couple others too

People bitching that "(insert character) Needs Nerfing" because they lost to them several times online, incoming in T-5 days.

For some reason I had a dream that I was playing a new Jet Set Radio game. It was open world and had an amazing day/night cycle. It was wonderful, yet horrible...
