It’s Friday and Easter is coming!!
Last week I was at PAX East and I didn’t post a blog, I thought about it but in the end I was tired and forgetful. Now I’m getting back on schedule. It’s been a busy week for me as usual. I arrived in Boston on Thursday night and spent Friday, Sat and Sun at the PAX convention.
Friday night I was invited to the Twitch YouTube content party and I got a lovely t-shirt with Godiva Gaming on the back. That is the ladies group I’m a part of. I met up with Blue, Phendran and Aureylian from the group also. Lovely ladies!! I also waited over two hours to see the demo of Borderlands The Pre-Sequel. So excited for that game, it will take place on the moon and have 4 new characters. I was told this information during my Gearbox tour but I signed an NDA and couldn’t talk about it.
On Saturday I went to the Mindcrack panel, bought a complete set of Cards Against Humanity, walked the expo floor, tried the expansion of “Don’t Starve” then attended a community party hosted by 2K games. I won a poster that I gave away because I couldn’t carry it on an airplane.
Sunday was the Gearbox panel and as promised I got VIP seats which meant a closer seat and early seating. It was fun as always and generous. We all got a free copy of the new game “The Pre-Sequel” coming soon. Not a DLC as given in the past but a FULL game. The other game to watch is one called Evolve. It’s designed by those who made Left 4 Dead and it takes 5 players, 4 as survivors and 1 as the monster. It’s a PvP game and the line was 4 hours to play. I didn’t get to try it but I watched the gameplay and it looks amazing. People were really buzzing about it. The last game I’m excited about is Civilization: Beyond Earth.
On Monday I took a flight from Boston to Houston where my dad had surgery on Tuesday. He is doing well and recovering but I’m limited in my game play right now. Maybe now is a good time to update this blog and give it a new look. Dad will be fine, later I will move on to Dallas to check on mom and end up in Las Vegas playing bigger games. My weekly blog should be back on track and I’m hoping to add more posts soon.
Have a great Easter weekend!!
