PAX East 2012 photos!

June 24, 2012

in Blog,PAX

For every PAX, I’ve written detailed blog posts about each panel Derek and I attended and what we did, saw, discovered, ate, etc… But due to my business trip to Japan right after PAX East I totally missed the opportunity to do it this time due to my business trip to Japan right after PAX East. But that doesn’t mean this PAX East wasn’t memorable or anything like that at all. In fact, super awesome stuff happened. Check out these blog posts to read more about it.

stuffed stuff: Ushanka hat (Castle Crashers bear hat)

stuffed stuff: Knights from Castle Crashers

stuffed stuff: Anklegator from Bastion

The rest of PAX East was also awesome. To prove it, I have tons of photos from PAX East which it’d be a waste not to share with you…

So here are photos and some videos from PAX East. WARNING: This post will be super photo heavy.

For this PAX East, I made 20 Ushanka (polar bear from Castle Crashers) hats!

These were our "lunch/snacks" for PAX East this year. We were munching like squirrels.

We stayed at the Seaport Boston Hotel the first night. They had a sewing kit in the bathroom! I had a full sewing set with me but I thought this was awesome.

Lobster roll - Like last year, we went to Yankee Lobster Fish Market. They have AMAZING & cheap seafood! This was our only decent meal in Boston.

Fried oysters - Mmmm mmm!

Cool display but I couldn't tell which game this was from. Why no sign?

Can't start a PAX without the Keynote

The reason why I'm a Penny Arcade fan. If you don't know what's it about, just Google "Paul Christoforo."

Assassin's Creed 3 booth with a long line. Black & shiny with red back lighting... Does not fit Assassin's Creed theme at all, but sure...

Chevy's booth had cars. Don't know how this happened but we were told that it'll never happen again.Â

Aliens: Colonial Marines

PAX East 2012

To be honest, I was more excited to see the Power Loader with the Queen Alien than the game. (Yes, you could get in the Power Loader and take a photo!)

PAX East 2012

Firefall hired people to dress up in the costume. The guy couldn't move at all.

PAX East 2012

Okay, this is cute.

"You can buy me! I don't hate you!"

PAX East 2012

Far Cry 3 - They were giving people a Far Cry themed haircut (Mohawk) and TATTOOS live. I AM SERIOUS. It was projected on to the huge screen. You can see the stenciled outline of a tattoo on a guy's shoulder.

PAX East 2012

"I got a lot of free swag at PAX East!" "Cool, what did you get?" "T-shirts, posters, pins, and a tattoo."

Naughty Dog Uncharted panel

PAX East 2012

This happens everywhere in the hotels around PAX East. Card games, board games, everywhere you look, people are playing games.

PAX East 2012

Robert Khoo's panel (the guy who's behind PAX). This was the very first time ever in the PAX history. It started out late but it was so worth it. I can't write what he talked about though... ;P

PAX East 2012

So many people!

PAX East 2012

BattleBlock Theater arcade cabinets are always super popular.

PAX East 2012

Super Time Force!! I can't wait for this game to come out!

PAX East 2012

I'd seen the trailer for Super Time Force before and it was a bit confusing... until I watched Derek play it in front of me. I'm so gonna love this game.

PAX East 2012

Sword & Sworcery record! This shall be mine.

To prevent fake badges being made/sold, the badges had this thing that glows in the black light.

This lucky guy won the missile from the "Super Soviet Missile Mastar" display.

For the closing ceremony, Jonathan Coulton & Paul and Storm sang the Canadian national anthem.

Phew!

I hope you get to experience the tiny bit of PAX from my photos. Hopefully, I can do a better post for PAX Prime that’s coming up in a little over 2 months.

For more pictures of PAX East 2012, visit Bento and non-bento! set and Bento details! set on my flickr page. (On the photos in the “Bento and non-bento!” set on my flickr, you can see the notes on the food explaining what they are.)
