PAX East 2013- DCM STYLE (Blizzard, LoL PAX Skins, Elder Scrolls Online, Live Stream Info!)

(Note: We had an unclaimed Facebook giveaway for a Steam Copy of Mark of the Ninja, comment below with what Vendor you’d love to check out in person to enter for a random drawing tomorrow!)

Early last year I decided I was finally going to venture out of my normal yearly plans and finally make it to a few industry events.   One of the events topping my list was PAX East in Boston.  The sold-out PAX East video game conference starts at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, this Friday, kicking off three days in which the video game industry is focused on Boston, Mass.  A few weeks ago, the schedule was posted of all of the actual events and vendors that will be on site debuting their titles to be released later this year along with new hardware.  From Blizzard, to Nvidia, to the numerous amounts of Indie developers, PAX East is 12344sure to no doubt kick of 2013 with a bang.  If you haven’t kept up on recent news regarding what PAX entails, here is a quick run down of some of the things myself and a few other editors will be checking out this year, along with sharing photos/videos during and after the event.

  1. Elder Scrolls Online and Bethesda in attendance.
  2. Blizzard Entertainment unveiling a new title.
  3. Cliff Bleszinski, aka Cliffy B, aka the creator of Gears of War.  
  4. Diablo 3 on consoles.
  5. Concerts!  Those Who Fight, Protomen, Sam Hart, MC Frontalot, Jonathan Coulton and Paul and Storm.
  6. Rainbow 6: Patriots
  7. A fresh new playable demo of The Last of Us
  8. MUCH MORE!

I could go on and on about the things that you guys will be able to see from our coverage, but more than that, I’m really stoked to finally meet some of the writers on our team.  It hasnt always been rainbows and butterflys but our group has finally come together to be something more than random people that write and share our gaming experiences all year with our fans.  We’ve become friends through our passion, and what better way than to meet each other than at an event like this.  If you won’t be at PAX East this year, here is what you should know if you want to keep up with each of the editors and what we’re doing!

  1. We’ll be tweeting and posting photos to twitter everyday from the event!  This is the quickest way to see what we see almost the instant rather than later when we get our full stories/photo galleries up. ( http://www.twitter.com/DontCritMe )
  2. In the evenings, Nemesis will take some time out to upload photos from the day for you all to check out to the Facebook page! ( http://www.facebook.com/DontCritMe
  3. After the event, the editors in attendance will show off their own photos and share their experiences on what they enjoyed the most and got from the event!
  4. During the event we’re going to attempt to gather up a good bit of League of Legends Pax Skins to give away to our faithful followers a well.
  5. A special Cosplay voting contest put on by Adata and Rosewill for a chance to win some epic prizes! (Details to come!)

You all voted earlier this month, and I will be taking a good bit of first person style wide video showcasing the event through how we saw it.  Almost in a V-LOG format.  I hope you guys are as excited as I am!  If you’re interested in catching the Live Streams, PAX has a live stream it will be running during the show.
