PAX Recap

PAXEast 13 Expo FloorEach year after the whirlwind that is the PAX weekend, I try to write one of these recaps. Sometimes they get written, sometimes not…though I’m not sure if one has ever been published.

PAX this year was awesome, but in a different way than usual. Aside from ESO I wasn’t interested in seeing any of the “big games” (read: waiting in line for an hour), so I was able to roam freely. Thankfully I did, because I found a whole world of indie games that I can’t wait to play again. From Fractured Soul (coming to Steam), to Castle Story, to Shovel Knight, I must have killed 4 hours between them. Each felt engaging in a fresh way that was exciting, not to mention supporting the little guy is huge for me. Read rest of story…

Annual PAX East Single: Get to the Choppa!

It’s that time of year again and the good stuff is here! This years PAX East single is an upbeat singalong chock full of wisdom. If there’s one thing the 80’s taught us, besides “knowing is half the battle” and that cocaine turns your brains into tasty fried eggs…it’s that any obstacle can be overcome with the help of a gnarly helicopter. Look at the evidence: Airwolf, Rambo 2 & 3, Predator, Red Dawn, Magnum P.I., The A-Team, Blue Thunder, Die Hard and pretty much any other movie/show where people needed to save the day or be saved. The answer is always: “Get to the Choppa!!”

PAX East 2013!

pax_east_logo-660x340

Somehow it’s here again. Like a slumbering giant, it lurks, waiting for the moment when it may stride proudly out of it’s lair and demand tribute from the masses. Kind of. Maybe that’s going a little too far, but you get my drift. Of course I’m talking about PAX East 2013. The one time each year that Boston area geeks get to cut loose under one roof and indulge in our basest instincts: Playing, collecting, and tweeting.

As has become tradition, MisCast will be in attendance and releasing new music, but this year we’re doing things a little differently. First, we’ll be releasing a free single to the internet on Thursday. A cut off our upcoming album (album to be named later), free for all. Second, we’ll be giving away 300 copies of a special EP to PAX East attendees. The catch is, you’ll have to find us. Or we’ll find you. Last year Sull and I had a great time meeting (and drinking) with a bunch of cool people and we’re hoping to do more of that this year. We’ll be tweeting throughout PAX (starting Thursday night when we arrive) giving hints to our location or issuing challenges from the classic arcade room. Oh, and there will be easter eggs.

Perhaps most exciting of all, we’re going to be playing live at PAX this year! No, not at either of the concerts, but from the halls of the convention center. We’re plotting a couple of “ninja shows” Friday and Saturday and will be tweeting out the time/location as they draw near.

As always, we’re looking forward to meeting up with you all and for all the mayhem that is PAX. More to come…

Stay Hungry,

-J
