THREE nights of concerts this year!

Rejoice! The PAX Prime 2013 schedule has finally been announced. First up, the musical acts! There's a lot of new bands performing this year. Friday night concerts will see  Bit Brigade, MegaRan and the Protomen all performing. Saturday's concert features Hideo, The Doubleclicks, and MC Frontalot. And since PAX Prime is a four day show this year, the first ever Sunday night concert features Super Guitar Bros., Adam Warrock, Supercommuter, and a special performance by Supergiant.

As for panels go, the main Destructoid one will be held on Sunday at 2PM. "The HUGE Evolution of Games Blogging" is where we'll be revealing our new vision for the site's future. Be sure to wear your Destructoid shirt for the group photo after the panel. Keep your Sunday evening open as we might be holding a special live Podtoid episode somewhere in Seattle too.

On Monday, our team from our Dtoid.TV channel will be hosting their "We tricked people into liking us, and you can too!" panel at 3PM. Oh, and site founder Niero will be a guest on the "Turning Geek Passion Into Profit" panel on Saturday at 2:30PM.

So that's all from our end, here are the highlights of other panels you should check out:

Friday:

1PM: Pitching The Last of Us @ Pegasus Theatre

Join Creative Director Neil Druckmann and Game Director Bruce Straley as they tell you how they successfully pitched Naughty Dog and PlayStation to develop and publish The Last of Us.

2:30PM: Rise of the Indies @ Wolfman Theatre

Join in the conversation as several successful indie developers come together to debate indie gaming’s rise to prominence, what’s allowed the scene to get to the point they’ve currently reached, and what that means for the present and future of independent game development.

Saturday:

1:00PM: 10 Questions with Supergiant Games: Presented by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences @ Serpent Theatre

Fans of Bastion and the upcoming Transistor will have a chance to get personal with Supergiant Games Studio Director Amir Rao and Creative Director Greg Kasavin!

3:00PM: Firaxis Games Mega Panel @ Pegasus Theatre

It’s the latest and greatest Firaxis Games Mega Panel! Featuring members of the studio that brought you XCOM: Enemy Unknown and the Civilization series, take a look behind the curtain at Firaxis Games and see what makes the studio so special. This panel will include special announcements and never-before-seen surprises, so you won’t want to miss it!

4:30PM: Keiji Inafune: From 8-bit to Next-Gen, and Beyond @ Kraken Theatre

Celebrated as the “father of MegaMan,” but branded as an outspoken critic of the Japanese game industry, ex-Capcom honcho Keiji Inafune’s frank talk, controversial opinions, and – most of all – his games have made many fans (and maybe a few enemies) on both sides of the Pacific.

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!

I feel terrible for not reading most of you beautiful people's blogs. Let's just say my passion is writing, not reading :s

People can debate GOTY all they want, but the real question is: D-Horse or Roach?

I'm dragging myself away from my PS4 long enough to say that MGS V is pretty darn awesome so far.

Down with that PAX Pox. Auhhhghghghhhh

MGSV: Sneaking into a heavily guarded Russian military base in Afghanistan at night, slashing throats while listening to this. [youtube]https://youtu.be/-hWZqllm3mQ[/youtube] Comes off like a perfectly planned scene in a Scorsese movie or something.

Tortilla chips: The only food I know and love to betray me by deciding to flip to a bad angle and stab me in the gums.

I'm ok with Namco shutting down Soul Calibur: Lost Souls, as long as they keep Ace Combat:Infinity running. Love that game and just hit 3 million credits.
ScreamAid avatarScreamAid
Holy fuck I feel new again. I've been on hiatus for a while and haven't been up to writing. I might just jump back into things after I relearn things here. Does anyone even remember me? Like damn it's been a while.

In MGS5: The Phantom Pain, Solid Snake dies from lung cancer from all those years of smoking. #FakeSpoilers

Wow, it's really easy to get people upset over video games.

I hope MGS V is living up to everyone's expectations. I can't get enough.
Barry Kelly avatarBarry Kelly
I dislike the idea of intentionally reinforcing the notions that either race or gender are character traits, and those that don't match your own are completely unrelatable.

Who's your favorite female black writer on Destructoid's staff? Post a comment below with your votes.
Dr Mel avatarDr Mel
I'm ok if someone chooses a character's ethnicity in a story with the intent of being more representative, as long as the story is good. And if even SOME people feel like it helps them relate, then good! Don't bother me none.
