PAX 2010: The Gameworks Across the Street

Posted by: Ryan Instead of doing one huge PAX Cblog, I'm gonna try to write one smaller post every day for maybe an entire week, if I can. And I didn't take many pictures, so bear with me. Dammit, why didn't anyone tell me that Taiko...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Experience PAX 2010 Vicariously Through SteezyXL

Last week I prepared for PAX. Over the weekend, I went to PAX. Now I'll share a bit of what I saw there. It was a blast, but I unfortunately didn't get much time to meet up with Dtoiders, because the Geometry Wars 2 tournament overlapped wi...

 
 
 
 

PAX 2010: The Weekend of John Solgrim

So. PAX Prime. What a waste of time. Literally the worst four days of my entire life - nothing at all exciting happened, I spent way too much money on garbage, Seattle is a terrible city, and now I'm really sick and stuck in bed. I regr...

 
 
 
 

My PAX experience: The Destructoid Edition.

Hey Dtoiders. It's been a while since I've posted blogs on Destructoid. I could've been lazy and copy and pasted what I had posted on my Wordpress blog, but I really didn't want to be shunned by community users for just doing a bunch of c...

While a number of Dtoid UK members are off enjoying PAX and playing Duke Nukem Forever, Capcom UK held a small event at the Empire Casino in Leicester Square, London to showcase Dead Rising 2. Those of us who remained in Blighty made sure t...

 
 
 
 

Si Vis Ludos Para PAX

Roughly, it means, "if you seek games, prepare for PAX." It's a corruption of the ancient adage, si vis pacem para bellum ("if you seek peace, prepare for war"). Anyway, I'm gearing up for this weekend's PAX fun, so I need to get prepared. ...

The used games pie

The past few months a lot has been said about the second hand market of games. Some publishers are trying to get a piece of the pie in whatever evil way they can. The games industry is seriously the first and so far the only industry where ...

 
 
 
 
 
 

The Winners of my Prom-test!

FIFA 11 Hands-on

Adopt A Black Child for PAX

Ok, ok. I'm only half black and I'm technically an adult now, but still, how could you deny the cuteness of little leprechaun-looking me! WARNING!: The last picture at the bottom of this blog is a little NSFW. Just a little heads-up. So...

 
 
 
 

Adopt Xzyliac for PAX Please

So last year I gave this a shot and no one adopted me. Probably because I was new and no one cared. Then at PAX East I gave this a shot and no one adopted me. Probably because it's the East coast and if moving to Texas has shown me anythi...

Adopt an Avatar: How Handy can make your PAX better.
