Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

We Could Go See The Boston Pops!

PAX East is a three-day game festival for tabletop, videogame, and PC gamers. We call it a festival because in addition to dedicated tournaments and freeplay areas we've got nerdcore concerts, panel discussions, and an exhibitor hall filled with booths displaying the latest from top game publishers and developers. Even with all this amazing content the best part of PAX East is hanging out with other people who know their shit when it comes to games.


So I just found out that for Christmas, Tastypastry bought us tickets to this. I am extremely excited!! With two exclamation points! This will be our first PAX, even though I've been wanting to go for a long time. There is a forum for PAX but we are Social Entropy and other forums are beneath us. Also I am frightened of them.

Ok, so who here is going, what is the coolest thing to see, where are you staying etc.

Langly on

    I love this sig but I feel like whenever people see me all they think now is gay turtle incest. I feel like I know what it is like to be Christina Hendricks now.

    mensch you can probably get a hotel for $120-150 a night

    split that among at least four people and it isn't terrible

    or you could go looking for a hostel, but Im not sure how common those are in Boston

    flights from detroit to boston are $300+ what the hell, the only cheaper one is $270 but it's got two stops and will take ten hours

    seriously considering just driving, gas will run me around $200 probably, so if someone on the way wants a ride to cut down the cost that would be p great

    I will be attending FAQ's kitchen get together and I'll bring R-Zone and all other Tiger electronic games I can find.

    It'd be nice if others bring batteries though.
