WRUP: PAX East approaches


Next week, the entire Joystiq crew will meet in Boston for our annual Illuminati mee... oh, we mean: PAX East 2012. Our only official bit of business will be doing a Joystiq Show live on Saturday, April 7, at 3PM. We aren't exactly sure what the format of the show will be, but the whole crew shall attend and it'd be great if you can be there to watch us make sillies of ourselves. Of course, beyond the show, we'll be around Boston, getting into as much trouble as legally permitted. So, feel free to stalk us on Twitter (our handles are listed next to our names, after the break).

What's everyone playing?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@XanderSliwinski): Helping El Presidente get through Tropico's modern times.
  • Ben Gilbert (@RealBenGilbert): Saving the galaxy, with or without the stupid damn council.
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): I'm going to grow 60 feet tall and uppercut a Reaper ship! Go Shepard, go Shepard, go!
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): So I've supplemented my Kid Icarus Uprising multiplayer "thing" with 3D Classics: Kid Icarus, ensuring that I can take breaks from Kid Icarus to play some Kid Icarus.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): Someone said "Devil," "may" and/or "cry" earlier this week, so looks like I'm playing with Dante on Saturday. You heard me.
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): Still waiting for ME3's face bug to get fixed, so my weekends are all about lawn bowling now.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): I'm waiting to play whatever weird, oddly thoughtful games emerge from the "What Would Molydeux?" game jam.
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): I'll be playing Kingdoms of Amalur while I pack to leave for Europe on Sunday! Also, I'll be playing Antithesis for iOS, which is a game that I made with my own two hands, while working on the 1.1 update. (FCC Disclaimer: It really is a game I made with my own two hands.)
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM): Still waiting for Mass Effect 3 patch so I can import MY Shepard. In the meantime I'm finishing up my Mass Effect 2 renegade run and hopefully I can finally crack into Kid Icarus: Uprising.
  • Steven Wong: Physics is magic! I'll be getting some friends together to play Trine 2.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav): Mass Effect 3 must be completed this weekend. I hope. If I can drag myself away from playing Ascension: Return of the Fallen on my iPad, it can be done.
