Made it out to PAX for the very first time and holy smokes it was incredible!
There's some pretty cool games, but I'd have to say some of the best stuff I saw was smaller things like this.
Also, out of all the games I messed around with there, I actually had the most fun playing some classic Smash Brothers with random gamers on the N64
And playing some goddamn Street Fighter II Championship Edition on an honest to goodness real arcade cabinet. I put up a quarter to indicate I was next and got a few knowing chuckles only to see my quarter disappear into the cabinet between the glass pane and the control panel... Rookie mistake -_-;;
Though far beyond anything else, was meeting up with a bunch of people like myself and seeing that they're all really a cool and awesome bunch. Starting off with the amazing John Drake who just KILLED this selfie. He also gave me a fancy Fantasia hat and some straight up MS money...
Also ran into Greg Kasavin at the Transistor booth and he also was pretty super friendly.
From there I ran into and played a pretty cool card game called Resistance with @rolyatkcinmai @ltsquigs @drewbert @wafflestomp @matt @willsmith and his wife Gina. The baby was less a player and more an accessory that aided Gina in looking innocent....
Vines provided by rolyatkcinmai (Which spelled backwards is!?)
Effin tourists =P
And finally also ran into @rorie who joined us for a drink at dinner. He's as amazing in person as he is on camera. Here's a Nick Vine of him explaining what he knows about vines.
and ignore my red face =)
All I can say is PAX was amazing. Thanks to all the cool people I got to meet face to face!
So yea? Anyone have any cool stories, pictures or anything to share?
