    Lightbulb WRUP: PAX East approaches [Joystiq]

    Next week, the entire Joystiq crew will meet in Boston for our annual Illuminati mee... oh, we mean: PAX East 2012. Our only official bit of business will be doing a Joystiq Show live on Saturday, April 7, at 3PM. We aren't exactly sure what the format of the show will be, but the whole crew shall attend and it'd be great if you can be there to watch us make sillies of ourselves. Of course, beyond the show, we'll be around Boston, getting into as much trouble as legally permitted. So, feel free to stalk us on Twitter (our handles are listed next to our names, after the break).

    What's everyone playing?

    I suppose we could use this thread as a roll call for PAX East.

    Anyway, I'll be there on the Saturday only. Due to circumstances out of my control, I was unable to get a media access pass this year and it was too late to get the full 3-day pass. Therefore, while my friends will be there all three days, I'll use that free time to roam around Boston and visit the city (which I hadn't had the chance to do the past two years at PAX East). The simplest way to find me will be at the gaming roadshow event hosted by Joe and Chris Kohler. If any of my friends here plan on going, shoot me a PM, and we could always make arrangements.

    Thread merged with the other one, which was in the right subforum (Events and Gatherings).

    Joe, John Hardie and I will be heading to Boston tonight.

    We will be in the Classic Console Free Play room frequently throughout the weekend, come say hey! Joe will be speaking on a few panels too.

    I'm sure you'll also be able to find me doing perfect runs on Dragon's Lair in the free play arcade. (I tried to practice up on Space Ace but didn't master the final level in time for PAX. Next year for sure.)

    2nd floor, big rooms appropriately labeled. You shouldn't have any trouble finding them.

    I'll be decked out in my FMA Maes Hughes costume at some point of the weekend.

    I guess if you debate it hard enough it's appropriate for a gaming con. :P

    Yeah, I know, but from my experience there are plenty of people in non-game-related costumes at PAX.

    And if you want to get technical he does appear in both PS2 FMA games.

    Plus, I want to get some mileage out of that suit. Get my moneys worth on the custom tailoring.

    AMAZING.

    All of the little mental checkboxes for a perfect event got checked off. Great gaming, new friends, old friends, new business, chat, and some beer. Definitely not in that order.
