Attention, Internet! I’m going to be away from you for a few days. Why? I’ll be attending my first Pax South, alongside Kingsdecree [One of the video guys/all around good fellows], and one of my best friends, who conveniently lives in the area now. He’ll be likely doing all camera work I need him to do! It may not be a lot, we’ll just have to see. However, this appears to be a much more relaxed and smaller event than East or West, which are multi-floored nightmares, where I have to run blocks sometimes, just to make an appointment! This one shouldn’t be quite that stressful. But that in no way means that it won’t have amazing things that I’m looking forward to, because there absolutely are! People I want to meet [or meet again], games that look like they’re going to be amazing, concepts I think are cool, and much more. Like what, you ask?
- People! Several cosplayers, like Jwo Designs, whom is super nice and talented, Xavier Woods might be there [Royal Rumble is in San Antonio. The fact that I’m not going is a damn crime.], at least one of the Hirez employees will be there to chat with, and I’m sure there are many many more.
- Hyper Universe! This is probably the game I’m looking forward to the most. It’s a 2D sidescroller with Super Sentai/Power Rangers characters in it, part 1v1 duel, part RTS, it’s got a lot going on, and I’m desperately looking forward to getting some hands on time with it.
- Lords of New York: A poker game with a really interesting 20s/30s story, where cheating is built into the game with cool abilities, and a cast of tremendously interesting characters. I’m not a huge Poker fan, because I’m not so great at it, but the story and characters have me vested. And being able to cheat just makes me laugh.
- Dauntless: Now this RPG has my full, undivided attention. It’s a co-op action RPG, so it could definitely be something you see on Bottom Tier before too long, if I’m lucky! I don’t know too much about it, but I will in a few days, and as soon as I do, you will too!
- Business Cards! Maybe this is a weird thing, but I love collecting them. It’s a great way to network, and I have a lot of networking to do over the next couple of days. I have a box of them somewhere in my office.
- Rooster Teeth/Battlesloths: Battlesloths will be at the Rooster Teeth booth from what I understand! I’m going to be talking to some of the Rooster Teeth folks about super secret special stuff, and also seeing Battlesloths! Which is a game that has sloths, and hats. What more do you really need out of life?
Is there something I missed off that I should see? If you hear about something, feel free to let me know!
