We are excited to announce that for our PAX Prime 2014 Storytime Session we have the extremely talented Chief Creative Champion from Gearbox Software, Mikey Neumann. Mikey has worked at Gearbox for 13 years and has written for many of their games, most notably the Borderlands franchise. Mikey spends his free time writing novels, comics with IDW Publishing, and doing a comedy podcast with Kris Straub called Chainsawsuit.
In addition to Mikey starting things off this year, we also have some top tier musical stylings to announce. Friday night will feature three great bands in Triforce Quartet, The Doubleclicks, and Paul & Storm. Saturday will feature a special live event, and then Sunday keeps it all rolling with the amazing MC Frontalot, Bit Brigade, and 7bit Hero all coming to deliver awesome tunes. Check them out here

Much as I love Acq Inc, I'd love to see some new groovy thing be created. As long as Acq Inc still gets a panel. If I had to guess, they will be doing something that tries to appeal to more people than the concerts do, to try to draw some more people away from the evening Freeplay crowds that always happen after expo closes.
"Special Live Event" sounded maybe like a "live vocaloids" performance to me too! That would be awesome!
I wonder if they'll confirm what the act is for that night? It would be pretty sad if they didn't, and the theatre got packed... and then the act had a niche audience (like vocaloids), and people who would have liked to see it didn't, and people who were in the theatre weren't really into it. I hope if they don't confirm, they at least give us some hints about the genre!
It's unfortunate that there's no sign of Anamanaguchi this year. I was looking forward to seeing Endless Fantasy performed live eventually.
Dude that would be epic, since their live show for Endless Fantasy is killer.
But its kinda sad that this year there is no Protomen. I have no clue what to do with my Saturday now.
That when you fall... You will fall from a height most men will never reach.
I'm always psyched to see Bit Brigade, they've become one of my favorite performances to watch.
What surprised me the most was Triforce Quartet. I've seen them live before but never on a big stage. They're actually really good, so if you like the idea of a four-piece string quartet playing videogame music, you're in for a treat.
As for Saturday... I don't even really have an idea of what it could be since they seem to be reserving the entire night for it. Maybe if they got some really big names like Nobuo Uematsu and the Earthbound Papa's or something it would make sense but who knows.
I just assume people on forums forget punctuation, but yours was correctly placed and I assumed the worst!
Lack of VGO means I probably won't carve out time to make the concerts, but if I end up nearby and not doing anything, these seem like some solid acts.
I'm bummed that VGO won't be out here either but they're working on some big stuff (like the Kingdom Hearts 3 OST and kickstarter rewards that we're helping them with ) so that's probably occupying their time more. If you're a fan of them Z then you should try and make some time to check out Triforce Quartet. I can't necessarily compare the two, but they're fantastic nonetheless.
Bit Brigade is worth seeing, and Sunday tends to be a not major party night.
Yes. Yes they are.
I've been pretty disappointed the past few PAXes (East included) that JoCo hasn't shown up, but none of us really even know the situation. All I hope is that he plays for us again at some point in the near future.

The last thing I want to do is use 2 hours standing in line and waiting for a show to start only to find out it's something I don't care about.
This has never been done before, and I don't think it's a good idea to do it now.
He's holed up on Skullcrusher Mountain fine tuning his plan to utterly destroy the production staff of Glee one by one.
It's kind of an odd trade off, since I imagine there's not a lot of market overlap, but the last three or four games have run long past their scheduled block, so I guess they wanted to have a longer chunk of time set aside for the game.
Verbosity is my charm point.
Interest/sadtime/wonderment/confuse. Is this podcast recorded somewhere?
Ah well, at least this gives me the opportunity to see the show at the Pink Door.
Edit: Removed Saturday speculation.

It's a perk of being a Club PA member. I'm honestly not excited for the concerts at all, there's nothing that's making me want to go this time... except maybe Triforce Quartet, but we'll see.
Oh well, more time for other activities!

Wizards of the Coast is always on-hand for these events and filming them, so video will be online at some point afterward.
As much as I love Acquisitions Inc., I'm honestly disappointed that it's taking up a night slot. I'll probably just end up at parties or something and watch it later.
Or maybe they're overestimating just how many people want to see dudes play D&D live. Or maybe Acquisitions Inc. really is that popular. Who knows.
It's very possible, probably more likely, that he's just not being invited. It's hard to say though.
Come to think of it, the guy's getting quieter and quieter. I hope things are okay with him...
Edit: In fact he posted this to his (increasingly rarely-updated blog) in October of last year:
Dude just may be tired.
