Takeaways from PAX East 2014

  • Pig masks scare the piss out of a lot of people.
  • Lines are still dumb.
  • I want to steal panzerskank's hair color.  She's also a woman of her word and made good on a promised high five.  Also keep an eye out for Roundabout coming out later this year and vote for it on steam greenlight!  It's a ton of crazy fun and I ended up preordering it on the spot! http://roundaboutgame.com/
  • The kickstarter lounge was a little claustrophobic but it had some great games there.  Personal favorites that I got to play are These French Fries Are Terrible Hot Dogs and Neverending Nightmares
  • Hotline Miami 2 gave me the pixelated gore-boner that I expected to get from it.  Chainsaws and dual wielding are nuts.  The new mechanics such as the dual wielding comes much more naturally than expected.  Right click to open arms, left click to fire.  Similar controls for the swans.
  • I need to plan for more money next year…
  • Fuck hubway’s rental bike services.  Not worth the hold it puts on your account at all.  I still have $202 as a hold on my account from using it Thursday.
  • The 3DS streetpass light doesn’t get a break during PAX
  • OH! and the Roll For Diversity lounge wasn’t the shitshow I half expected after the internet threw a fit over its announcement!  It was actually really cool there, lots of great people and groups just trying to get their name out there and their causes heard and understood.  I loved it!

Oh, and I’m back from PAX.  Got to see and hang out with kissing-whiskey, chuckfelsea and downtothedepths (it’s 3 am, i feel like I’m forgetting people, sorry!)

My cosplay was incredibly well received.  I’m absolutely blown away by all of the comments and reactions I got on it.  I was super critical of a lot of detains in the costume but apparently I did pretty good with it?  Day 1 I did the Pig mask, it was miserable inside that thing but people fucking LOVED it!  Met a great Biker cosplay as soon as I got to the queue room and we hit it off.  I got stopped. We made it to the Hotline Miami 2 booth at the same time by chance and the people working it loved us!  Whoever is in control of the @hotlinemiami twitter posted a picture of us there! https://twitter.com/HotlineMiami/status/454638441947750400  Towards the end of the night in the convention center another Jacket cosplayer stopped me in a hallway and asked me if I was the jacket they’d been hearing about (I didn’t have my mask on at the time)  Apparently I was the one?  I never expected people to really dig the costume at all.  Day 2 I did the Rooster mask, wore it on top of my head a ton, people dug it but I didn’t get stopped half as much as the pig.  I went back to the booth to play again, ran into 2 horse head Jacket cosplayers and another Biker and we all suddenly got swarmed by maybe 20 people in rapid succession for photos which was pretty awesome. One was picked up by Andrew Parsons of Devolver Digital (Hotline Miami’s publisher) and tweeted out. https://twitter.com/threewayswitch/status/455073814289072128 I didn’t bother with the wolf mask.  Day 3 I just decided to be me and keep a fairly low profile.

Erm… To be honest I’m fucking fried and can’t think to fill in anymore of this.  Maybe I’ll do a full writeup in a day or two.  Probably not.

oh, and because of a bad accident on one of the interstates, we missed the last ferry home and had to drive all the way around, adding about 3 hours to the trip :/  

And some idiot on a motorbike was stopped in the middle of the road and I think trying to walk his bike directly across traffic that was all doing around 70.  Nearly hit the crazy son of a bitch.  So happy I was so alert at the time.  I was maybe 2 feet away from him at the farthest when I swerved around him.

I made a very grumpy friend. #Evolve #PAXEast #pax #PaxEast2014 (at Boston Convention & Exhibition Center)

BOSTON, HERE I COME!

Leaving for PAX East in about 7 hours, who’s up for hanging out?  My crew has nothing planned at all for Thursday night.

So here’s how my costume’s coming out!  I’m still iffy about getting it all bloody.  After a full 24 hours drying outside my test fabrics dried pretty dark.  

I probably won’t be wearing those jeans but the last shot is to give a full top to bottom look at it all.

The shoes are high tops with straps across the front and probably the luckiest thrift shop find ever.

I’ve not decided on the crowbar or the axe yet, I’ll probably just bring both and see how it goes.

Holy shit.

By this time next week I’ll be in Boston for PAX!

Oh and I noticed something hidden in my PAX East shirt…

PAX, I love you.  I got my PAX East Fan Survey link today and this was towards the end.  You’re doing gender questions right.  No options, just a fill in your own.  Way to beat that republican party survey, guys.
