    Fuckfuckfuckfuck

    The Behemoth - I'd like more Castle Crasher knights, especially with the announcement of the coming update. I expect more Game 4 stuff though.
    Bethesda - Ugh. Whatever it is I don't want to fight the line.
    Double Fine
    Harmonix - I would fucking die if they had a 4 pin set, with one of each of the band logos (Drums/Guitar/Mic/Bass)
    Kabam
    Maker Studios
    Motiga
    Think Geek - A MegaMan set? They have others on their site... I can dream
    Twitch - Fuck Twitch, I don't want the same BS as last time... please be a rehash.
    Ubisoft - I'd LOVE a South Park pin (for The Fractured But Whole...), but I expect Assassin's Creed or The Division.
    Wargaming America
    Runic Games
    Bandland - Protomen. PLEASE. And of course it's fair to assume Scott/Kris/maybe Katie will have new pins also.

    Will edit with more as time goes on.

    Bethesda
    Holy shit, a Fallout 4 Pinny Arcade pin might actually be real :surprised: :surprised:

    Predictions:
    The Behemoth - New Series 5 pins in the Chonku Chonku machines, most likely Game 4 stuff.
    Bethesda - Fallout4Fallout4Fallout4Fallout4
    Double Fine - Gang Beasts pin would be awesome
    Harmonix - They had a RB4 pin at East. They couuuld do another one for Prime, but maybe they'll do something with Amplitude 2?
    Kabam - Marvel pins?
    Maker Studios - Isn't this Polaris's parent company now? Maybe a Markiplier pin, lol
    Motiga - Gigantic pin, most likely of one of their character classes.
    Think Geek - Maybe the Naughty Dog pins? Since they handled the shipment of them on the PAX off-season.
    Twitch - Probably more artificially limited shit to make people swarm to their booth without actually giving them anything.
    Ubisoft - Maybe Assassin's Creed or something. There's a lot of possibilities for this one. I'd be fine if it was just another "preorder a game at the show" bonus pin.
    Wargaming America - muh world of tanks
    Runic Games - A Torchlight pin would be awesome
    Bandland - Hopefully Dark Brian, as well as Scott and Kris pins (and maybe a Freezepop pin?!?! God, let it happen)

    I guessed a Vault Boy for Bethesda, then @vaanrose was all "what about a Vault Boy pack". My hopes are so up right now.

    The Behemoth - More Game 4 (Pit People) pins!?
    Bethesda - FALLOUT 4 IT'S HAPPENING PIP BOY
    Double Fine -
    Harmonix - I like Craig's ideas of instruments. MAKE IT SO.
    Kabam - This could be anything. They make games for so many franchises.
    Maker Studios - Also could be anything. Maker is a Youtube production house, but they were recently acquired by Disney.
    Motiga - Gigantic! Cool dinosaur pins I hope.
    Think Geek - ANOTHER one that could be anything. They cover so many products :(
    Twitch - The return of the Devil.
    Ubisoft - Assassin's Creed would be my bet.
    Wargaming America - Some cool looking tank pin or something.
    Runic Games - Torchlight!!!!!
    Bandland - Freezepop/Protomen plz

    The Behemoth - Chonku blind box full set of battleblock prisoners (320 pins). There will be rarities including rare and ultra-rare.
    Bethesda - Gary 4 pin set. The pins are identical in every way but you collect all 4 because you can't bear being incomplete.
    Double Fine - Spacebase DF9. Beat Tim Schafer in the cinnamon challenge to earn. (Note: pin is struck but not enameled, you need to finish that on your own)
    Harmonix - Fantasia: Music Evolved reissue. Complete extended cut "It's A Small World" rock band demo.
    Kabam - Studio logo pin. Just yell "KABAM" loudly until they give you the pin to get you to leave.
    Maker Studios - PewDiePie pin. Must hold conversation with PewDiePie for 3 minutes. Probably easier to just trade for it.
    Motiga - Studio Logo, purchased
    Think Geek - No idea. Will be $40 for 4 pin set whatever it is.
    Twitch - Gold Kappaface. 10 awarded each day to best copypasta submissions. You may enter as many times as you want but can be banned at anytime for any reason.
    Ubisoft - Rainbow Six / Assassin's Creed crossover pin set of 2. Free but must show genuine enthusiasm for Syndicate. (Like Maker just trade for them)
    Wargaming America - A tank, duh. 500 per day issued by lottery or you can guarantee one by upgrading to premium ticket.
    Runic Games - A mule. Play the Torchlight demo and comment how much better it is than Diablo 3.
    Bandland - Whatever they made by the deadline to keep the lights on. $15 each ($25 for Frontalot).

    If Double Fine did one, it should be Massive Chalice.

    Just that, in fact...just the chalice. In its glory.

    - TOP SECRET THIRD THING -

    I will be announcing PAX Prime pins on Friday. I don’t want to force the issue but I think you will dig them.

    Well anytime I hear the word "force" from Michael/Gabe I instantly think of Star Wars. As for "dig" that could reference the Fallout Vaults? Not sure about that one because there are plenty of games which involve an underground to some extant.

    If there are Star Wars pins I'll... I'll

    I don't know.

    That's an unprecedented clashing of fandoms.

    But I am prepared for
    • Death
    • Copious syncope
    • Immediate rapture
    • Heart Palpatines palpitations
    • Temporary paralysis
    • Permanent paralysis
    • Loss of speaking ability
    • The constant sensation of a thousand angels singing in my ear

    Pins! Pins everywhere!

    Do any of the vendors listed in the guidebook app have Star Wars projects? Maybe this year's Prime set will be Star Wars themed? Jedi Tycho, Darth Gabe, Yoda Kemper?

    Given one of Jerry's news posts from Monday said this:
    Later this week we will reveal the PAX Prime 2015 set, and it might be the most amazing collection yet. Gabe had the cool idea to do pins a few years ago, good job him, but when I look at this set I can hear the voice of the Emperor cawing about fully armed and operational battle stations.
    I think presuming Star Wars is completely reasonable.

    Not to rain on any parades, but don't forget that Disney owns Star Wars now, so personally I find it very unrealistic to see one... I mean I'd friggin love to have one, but I'm not getting my hopes high.

  • Options

    I don't know all the companies well enough to guess what a pin would be from them. Or to be too excited for them. But from what I do know and am excited for...

    The Behemoth- Full-bodied Green, Red, Pink and Necromancer Knights to celebrate the upgraded version of castle Crashers on the way. Done in poses from the intro of the game (slicing and doing magic). Oooh, or them dancing/ rocking out. Or it's thePrincesses.. or... *rambles off*

    Bethesda- This needs to be a set of Vault Boys. Either a S.P.E.C.I.A.L. set of him, or the pictures of him from the perks. Whichever they are, I hope they are indeed a "they". Increases the chance of them being bought and not earned through some terribly long line of people wanting to demo the game or just see it.

    Maker Studios- maybe a streamed Star Wars Battlefront event where participation earns you a Darth Vader Pin? That's what I hope. It's what I hope a lot.

    Motiga- I'm hoping for either the Gigantic Lizard Boss guy, or the Dinosaur Logo. There were shirts given out last year for trying the game, maybe this year it'll be a pin.

    ThinkGeek- I got a Star wars pin and mug for vaanrose online recenty there, so... maybe this is where they'd sell a Star Wars pin? Maybe it'll be a pin of their con- survival bag of holding or even that monkey. Whatever it is, they're owned by Games Stop now so I'm sure they'll be selling it. AND I'll be buying it.

    Ubisoft- All I need is the Assassin symbol... or the Assassin horse from the comic. Yeah, that'd do, too. Possibly given from the end of a presentation? Or maybe for pre-ordering the game. I'd do it.

    It could be themed in some way that resembles SW (that would be my guess, truthfully). Actual licensing of it would be amazing if actually managed!

    We all need the Vault Boy pin but, like, I need a Vault Boy pin.

    EDIT:

    Also, I know I've said it before, and I think in this thread. But man, I would love if most of these were just buy. If Bethesda is going to come up with a convoluted Twitch style giveaway, there'd be deaths.

    I'm still waiting on a more concrete schedule than what the current buggy Guidebook has. The Omegathon does not sit well in terms of getting to go to things for pins as it currently stands.

    Yeah, the only pins we know of right now are the ones which are listed under Expo Hall exhibitor names. It seems that WotC has been transitioning into tabletop-only since South, so I'm still expecting something from them, just not in the expo hall.

    I'm disappointed because "limited number" makes me think they are pulling the same stunt as at East where they were forcible trying to make it valuable by forcing scarcity versus making it a memorable experience to get or having an outstanding design.

    On the one hand, I'm betting they have printed fewer than their booth throughput, which makes it technically a "limited number". On the other hand, it does smack of Carnie Talker-esque shenanigans.

    Maybe the Marketing writer is genuine, and has been told "you have X of these to giveaway" and realised that "oh gosh, we will run out. I don't want to disappoint people, I'll warn them to come early." Maybe not.

    With a design like that they'd have been made together to ensure they worked together. VERY unlikely its not designed

    The design I'm sure was done, but I'm talking about the actual printing process of the pins. I'm sure the companies have to pay for the pins before they give the OK to make them, and considering pins per PAX get manufactured at the same time (to my knowledge, I'm also basing this on the PAX South shenanigans).
