Dem Pins from Dem Games

So, I am honestly not a big video gamers anymore. I went the MMO route in '99 and never looked back. I finally broke the cycle of addiction and boredom that are MMOs, and as such, don't much play the vidjya games you kids are into these days. That being said, I just downloaded Transistor last night.

What prompted that you ask? Well, the Red pin from PAX Prime this year honestly! Loved the look of the pin, loved the look of the art at the booth getting the pin even more, so I had to get it. Has the acquisition of any pins lead you to something fun and interesting?

    Not yet. I have gotten more open to D&D than I was before I got the pins, but still have not played it yet. If I ever got an XBONE I will get Project Spark and most certainly would not even know about it without the pin.

    Also somewhat curious to see Adventure Time and Bravest Warriors since the pins

    I gave The Order a chance because of the pin, and really enjoyed the demo. I'm sure I would've overlooked the game for a while if it wasn't for the pin.

    Still not interested in Wildstar because MMOs
    I got an Xbone and KI because of pins
    I tried Hearthstone because of pins, but I'm just not that big on it
    I also checked out the inFamous booth because of the pin last year, which got me interested in it as well, and it ended up being great.

    So yeah, the pins have worked for me.

    It's a quote from Bravest Warriors. It's not the best, but has some fun bits.

    Mike and ACQ Inc. make me want to try DnD too. Never played before! But none of my pals are interested. I mention DnD and they look at me like I've got two heads. Sucks being the nerdiest person in a group of mature adults.

    As for trying games because of Pins... well, the pin demo I enjoyed the most at East was probably WoW, but mostly just for memories' sake. I completely forgot how-do-keyboard and mostly spent my time looking at the new area and the new character models but exploring was why I used to play WoW in the first place. Briefly considered going back because of the beta key. I tried HotS too (yes, I did the blizzard lines twice) and I had never played a MOBA before and I HAD NO IDEA WHAT WAS HAPPENING and being the shitty team member in front of everyone watching gave me anxiety. So, not doing that again.

    But outside of PAX I have not been led to play any games because of pins.

    Pins! Pins everywhere!

    There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?

    I probably never would've downloaded Hearthstone if it wasn't for the pin at East.

    I've taken a closer to look to Behemoth's offerings after getting their pins. I had gotten back into Magic the Gathering a bit after getting the Chandra pin. Read more about who she was in that universe. I like the Commander/EDH style of play, much nicer on casuals in my opinion.

    Magic is about the community, not the format. Any format can be hell on casuals if you've got uber competitive types in your community.

    my comment on "nicer on casuals" is not having to worry too much about the cards. EDH is almost all open from any set.
