We share our Day 2 stories from PAX East. Special thanks to Deo and Sarah!
We’ve arrived in Boston once again for PAX East and share our highlights of the first day.
We’re testing some audio equipment this week and Mathew’s mic didn’t work out so well, so he sounds pretty echo-y. Gaming includes AC4, Device 6, Card Wars Adventure Time, 2048, Mercenary Kings, inFAMOUS Second Son, Heroes of the Storm, and Spermy’s Journey (no kidding). In news, Shadows of Mordor gets a release date and Amazon releases the FireTV, their answer to the Roku and Apple TV.
We’ve got some new stuff on tap this week including Blendoku, Diablo III: Reaper of Souls and inFAMOUS Second Son. We also touch on the recent PS4 game price increase in Canada. Mathew fires off another mobile recommendation – this time it’s Shadow Blade. He also picked up the HD remake of FFX/X-2. In news, we discuss Facebook buying Oculus VR.
The team is getting excited for PAX East in just a few weeks! Also this episode, Strike Fleet Omega, Titanfall, TowerFall, Magic 2014 and Free to Play – a new movie that examines the life of three Dota 2 players competing at the International.
A late winter snow storm forced us to stay indoors this week, so instead of cancelling the show, we decided to try recording via Skype. We cover Smash Hit, Card Wars Adventure Time, South Park: The Stick of Truth, TowerFall Ascension, Titanfall, Magic 2014 and Lego Marvel Super Heroes. In news, Hearthstone leaves beta and is now available to everyone, there is a Portal board game coming and we discuss taking pictures of plumber butts at Magic: The Gathering tournaments.
Ian’s still into MTG 2014 and Warren plays a few new games including Card Wars: Adventure Time, Soul Fjord on OUYA and South Park: Stick of Truth. Andrew is the latest member of the team to have computer trouble. After his Macbook caught fire, he bought a PC and the fan sounds like a jet engine. He did have time to play some Resident Evil 4 on Steam as well as more Lego Movie: The Game. Corey also picked up South Park and did some 3DS StreetPass while vacationing in Florida. Mat has just been playing more Leeg and Dota 2. He has also spent some time rewriting aspects of our Pathfinder adventures.
This week Ian played more Magic 2014 while Warren got into Infinite Crysis (in early beta) which is DC’s version of a MOBA. Matt slacked off and watched the Olympics all week. Andrew picked up the slack with Lego Movie: The Game and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and Mathew spent more time with League of Legends, Dota 2, and tried the new Strider demo. A new feature this week, we asked our fans on Facebook to submit questions they would like us to answer.
Andrew takes on Tomb Raider Definitive Edition on PS4, Warframe and the Nvidia Shield. Jeremy managed to find a PS4 for sale while vacationing in Florida and also downloaded LEGO Marvel Superheroes as well as a few free games through PS+. Ian’s been bitten by the Magic: The Gathering bug and picked up Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014. Corey has been going deep with Pokemon Y and tries Monster Hunter 4. Matt is still playing Flappy Bird for some reason and Mathew plays Duck Tales: Remastered with his daughter, as well as Dota 2, D&D and Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved. In news Irrational Games abruptly shuts down.
A big shout out to Dustin from THC Games for being accepted as a Wii U developer. Ian spends the week on a demo binge and Warren plays more League of Legends as well as Descent, Let There Be Smite! and A Link Between Worlds. Matt gets addicted to Flappy Bird while Andrew tries Oceanhorn (like Windwaker – $8.99 on iOS), Tomb Raider and Lego: The Movie game. Corey is owning Pokemon Y and drags everyone down the MtG rabbit hole. He’s also been painting our Dwarven Forge pieces. Finally Mathew plays League of Legends, Connect 4, pool and Bravely Default. In the news this week are the heartless people of King.com.
