Okay, real quick-like, I'm going to explain that image. This guy told me last PAX that Kingsport Horror (an expansion for my current favorite board game, Arkham Horror) was going to be available by Halloween of 2007. Do not trust this man, as he made me very sad for many months.

PAX isn't just a videogame show, it's a celebration of geekdom. All manner of dork pursuits can be found within its hallowed halls, including one of my favorite pasttimes: tabletop gaming.

This year, the show had grown so swollen with content that these original wireless gaming systems had to be moved to their own building across the street from the main convention center. There, tournaments were held in all manner of games and an entire floor was dedicated solely to just grabbing a table and playing whatever you wanted. If you didn't have your gear with you, a huge library of games was also available for borrowing. There was even a touching tribute to Gary Gygax in which people were asked to leave a note recounting their favorite memories playing Dungeons & Dragons.

The exhibition hall, too, featured many publishers of analog entertainment with lots of opportunities for hands-on demos of new games. Big names like Seattle-based Wizards of the Coast and Fantasy Flight Games were alongside more indie producers like Flying Frog Productions (makers of the very cool Last Night on Earth zombie game).

Check out our epic gallery of tabletop goodness from this year's show.

What's Up: Unreal Tournament, AC Unity, X-Men trading cards, DOOM II RPG

Today there are a bunch of new trailers for games like Assassin's Creed Unity, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and The Last of Us Remastered (which is on sale) but Bill and I would rather talk about superhero cartoons from twenty years ago, and guns we can't remember the names of in Unreal Tournament. more

What's Up: ME4's Mako, Deadpool test footage, Gal Gadot as Xena

Monday is the worst day of the week, so Bill and I are coping with it by drinking blueberry smoothies and talking about wonderful things like superhero nonsense from Comic-Con, Mass Effect's exciting new (old) sharkmobile, Trine 2's awful poetry, Destiny's two unoriginal races, and True Detective, which Bill doesn't like, and therefore isn't allowed to have blueberry smoothies anymore.more
