PAX East was pretty special this year as Twitch TV partnered with the expo to livestream tons of content from the convention. Twitch was running a dedicated channel which brought select panels from the convention directly to thousands of viewers in their homes. The gaming focused livestream service also had a special network of channels set up to bring exclusive content from all over the convention floor, including our own Destructoid channel.
For about an hour each afternoon, April 6th-8th, King Foom, of Mash Tactics, broadcasted live from Twitch's set on the PAX floor with special interviews. As with all of Destructoid's live shows, the recording are accessible to view here, but, in case you missed these special shows, I bring them to you below for your viewing convenience.
Friday afternoon, King Foom had a chat with Josh Galvine of Demiurge Games about Shoot Many Robots, which saw its Steam release earlier that day. Galvine talked a bit about taking player feedback into account when tweaking their game, and they then gave away some swag to the studio audience.
On Saturday, Foom sat down with professional wrestler turned tech blogger, Michael Manna (Stevie Richards). Manna talked about his show Tech Today, Tech Tomorrow, and his experiences with covering the fast-moving consumer technology field. Naturally, the conversation turned pretty quickly to videogames. Manna also announced that he, and his co-host Josh "Colm" Coleman, would be moving their show to Twitch TV.
Sunday afternoon, King Foom shot the breeze with the man, the legend, the former face of the Destructoid live channel, Jon Carnage. Carnage passed Mash Tactics on to King Foom when he became the new Network Content Director of Twitch TV, and he still has not gotten a haircut.

Still, I'm curious about whoever's favorite demon/persona. Mine's probably Trumpeter! Without 'em, I would've never aced P4G on Very Hard.

I have no idea how many more puzzles there are, but I think I'll be getting towards the first ending soon.Dreamweaver Shoot, I have made the awful mistake of watching 50 First Dates while doing Comments of the Week. The comedy in the beginning gave me energy, but all of the sad drama is making me cry and it's hard to see through all the tears. WHY YOU DO THIS TO ME!? 8^8Zatsune I'm eating EDO's rn. Leftovers.
