Hey, are you going to PAX East this year? Then make sure to stop by the 2 Player Productions and Attract Mode booth, where the lovely Adam Robezzoli and the personable Matt “Fort90” Hawkins will be selling the finest of wares, including zines, posters, indie game soundtracks and, last but not least, our very own Meat Bun tees!
It’s true! Meat Bun will be making a special trip to the inaugural Penny Arcade Expo in Boston, Massachusetts this weekend, courtesy of Attract Mode, a chance to get your hands on some classic favorites and long-out-of-print product. Look for the 2 Player Productions booth in the Band Land area if you want to stock up on some video game culture goods. Just do it early! Quantities are wicked limited and the stickers are free.
PAX East is totally happening March 26-28 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. You should go and give high-fives to Adam and Matt for us!
Yep, it’s 3 AM. I had to force myself to put down the controller and power down the PS3.
Believe the reviews. God of War III is really that good, and looks like the screen shot above. Those minotaurs are just yard trash, yet they look completely epic. Wait until you fight a god, and witness killing him through his eyes.
Definitely some more late nights in store for me in the near future.
If you don’t know about Die Antwoord, your inner zef is in need of some serious refreshing. Waddy Jones (a.k.a Ninja) and Yo-landi Vi$$er (the pixie crack-baby with the space mullet pictured below) can take care of that in a heart beat-boy.
Mike sent me an IM, “You want to go see the new Tron in 3D IMAX on Saturday?” I’m like, “Hell yeah!”
Driving down, we had a suspicion it was just a trailer from all the chatter across the web leading up to the event. Rumors were even flying it was attached to an early screening of the new Alice in Wonderland. That made the most sense, with Tron still being 10 months out, and Alice being just a week. Besides, Disney owns both…
It turned out it was only the new trailer, shown twice. (For some proper journalism on the event, check out Mike’s recount on Kotaku.)
The screening was at THE BRIDGE: Cinema de Lux in The Promenade at Howard Hughes Center — my old stomping grounds in Culver City, CA. Culver City also happens to be the place where the original Flynn’s Arcade stood. Now its a swank restaurant called Akasha.
Both Tron directors were on hand — the original, Steven Lisberger, and the new, Joseph Kosinski. This gave me some hope that the movie may turn out all right. That, and the trailer was pretty stunning. It is going to be a must see in 3D IMAX.
From what I gathered during the 20 minute Q & A session (while the film rewound), Daft Punk was heavily involved and will be in the movie, Disney will be recreating Flynn’s Arcade, and expect a game. Sometimes avoiding questions can say more than any press release.
