Necros makes a PAX post a month late

I originally wrote this up a few weeks ago (some of it even on the plane home) and never got to post it because of issues uploading some things I wanted to put live with it. Since we finally got our asses and posted the Failcast recording...

 
 
 
 

L4D Poster available NOW!

Were you not able to make it out to PAX? What if you got there and weren't able to play the most AMAZING game every? The lines were kind of long (especially the second day) but they had swage! Not a whole lot, but they did have this sweet p...

 
 
 
 
 
 

PAX 08: Dead Space Hands-on Video

Here's a video I recorded during a hands-on session with the Dead Space demo at PAX. [video]102840:321[/video] After reviewing this footage and listening to the EA rep's commentary, I have to admit that I've gone from not caring too much...

 
 
 
 

CONTEST: Win a PAX Fallout puppet!

I'm sure it's clear to even the most jaded Destructoid reader that PAX is widely considered to be pretty much the best thing ever. I've been meaning to write a bit about my experience at the show. Unfortunately for my plans, school star...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The most epic 4 days of my life (EuroNARP full-recap)

Ok, it has been about a week now since the euroNARP ended, and it looks like finally I've got some time to do the full recap of all the awesomeness that happened over the weekend :) I haven't had much time this week as this week was my firs...

 
 
 
 

PAX08: Impressions of a Plant

It's now a week after PAX08 has closed its hallowed doors, and finally I have some free time to write about it. I know most people have already shared the highlights, some horrifying, some dangerous, but all of them wonderous. Here then, ar...

 
 
 
 
 
 

PAX 2008: My experiences

Hello everybody! I recently went to PAX, and heard of a website called Destructoid. Seemed like an okay enough place for people involved in video games (like myself, he he), so I thought I’d share my experiences. Let me start off by sayi...

 
 
 
 

PAX Dragon Age Booth Video Impressions

Mind if I take a moment of your time? I'd like to talk about a game I was eager to check out during PAX: Bioware's 'Dragon Age: Origin' is being touted as a spiritual successor to Baldur's Gate. While it doesn't take place in any Dungeon...

 
 
 
 

Strippertoid (NSFW... kinda)

Late Sunday night after PAX closed it doors. A small group of us decided to make our way to a local strip club. We wanted pictures of a stripper with DToid stickers on her body. After I had sweet talked by waitress and tipped my strippe...

PAX 08 Mini-Montage Video

I've whipped up a quick montage of stuff that happened at PAX 2008. It's probably not the best and the music idea I ripped off of from the PAX 07 DVD teaser, but oh well. Also, this doesn't mean the end of my PAX game previews, I just g...

Pre-PAX Mayhem Memories: Wednesday and Thursday

There are many wonderful tales of PAX that have already been posted across these blogs. I feel the need to throw in mine as well, because the whole thing was such a personal experience. While was probably an equally powerful experience for ...

 
 
 
 

PAX Preview: Hands on with Champions Online

Ok, I’ll admit it. I didn’t go to the Champions Online booth because I wanted to see if the game was any good. No, instead I saw the free gear they’d been giving away. Backpacks, skateboard decks, ping pong ball launchers. I suppose t...

PAX '08: Pheoinx won't stop crying edition.

After attempting to successfuly re-cap what happened at PAX, I quite simply, gave up. To be honest, I’m not entirely sure how an experience such as this can be successfully re-capped. I could possibly write for ever and still leave someth...
