[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 ate vanilla ice cream and didn't put on any chocolate syrup. Now wondering if that was racist whitewashing #thanksjed.

There's a Custom Soundtrack folder in MGSV. I can't think of a better thing to put there than the old episodes of podtoid I've been running through lately. I'll be fultoning guys and Holmes will be puttin' on mesh tank tops. Perfect.

MGSV Pro Tip: Turn your brightness down to 0. It actually makes the view distance for the guards correct, and doesn't make nighttime the best option for you every single time. When guards shoot flares in the sky, the lighting looks like Dragon's Dogma.

Proof I listened to too much Weird Al growing up: I really do hear "Living in America" as "Living with a Hernia."
Nic Rowen avatarNic Rowen
I've been playing a shit ton of Heroes of the Storm recently. It's my first MOBA and I'm SHOCKED at how much fun I'm having. Anyone else into it? Would love to get some games in with Dtoiders.
Script avatarScript
I would wait for a chance to play the game by myself, but I just have to know. Is David Hayter in MGS V in any way? Please no spoilers.
Rad Party God avatarRad Party God
Guys, serious question... How can I make D-Horse to poop?

Goddammit @ FullmetalJ, you have poisoned my mind with...whatever the hell this is.[youtube]https://youtu.be/wv0iUKb80C8[/youtube] It's so, so catchy. Go suck a baguette. And thanks :3. Yes I have listened to all of it.

As someone who hasn't played the MGS series at all, should I play it by release date or story order?
Vuster avatarVuster
Been watching a good friend play the Metal Gear game on twitch soon. I will say I can understand the appeal 100% and Kojima knows how to make a great piece of work. I think will hold off on a new pc and get this if this keeps up!

So I can plug any headphones I want into my PS4 controller. If said headphones have a mic, will it work in chat?
ScreamAid avatarScreamAid
Gee whilikers, guys. I might just explain where I've been and what I've been up to while I've been gone. That'd be a good topic for a c-blog getting me whipped back into shape, right? I'ma try to write more, so expect more of me in the future!

Just bought Fez for xbox 360. Playing it on my 58 inch plasma. What a beautiful game.

So there's a chance more MKX characters are being revealed today. Now, I'm not saying you *should* cross your fingers and say a prayer for me to get my waifu Sindel just, y'know, it would be monstrous of you to make me cry with your lack of love & support

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.

I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on.

I put too many peppers in my sausage and potatoes. My asshole is on fire. I want to cry when I wipe. But it was good.

One glorious Japanese twitter user made a custom LBX of one of my favorite Kamen Riders: [img]http://i.imgur.com/yp1oraHm.jpg[/img] It's like getting peanut butter in chocolate but with small robots and spandex banana men!
