If you thought the last Asian was cute, this one was absolutely adorable. I know her hat is exactly the right oversized proportion, but if it shrouded less of her head, you’d also notice that she dyed her hair purple. The plush polymorph was probably custom, and the staff definitely was. That thing was a […]

In one of the few contests we actually enter, Megan wins a year’s subscription to Xbox Live! She demanded a celebratory photo with the cute Asian in the cute hat. This exhibitor was actually the one to convince us to play in the first place. We were first drawn in by the stress cubes: […]
This was the most bizarre (read: awesome) steampunk gun I’ve ever seen. First off, it was SOLID. Really solid. I definitely needed the shoulder strap for this, because you could have used this to bust a door open without leaving a dent. Upside: no worry about someone jostling into you and knocking a piece […]
Remember Me’s presence at the Capcom zone was paradoxical. There was clearly resources pumped into promoting it – they had a RM-branded photo booth, an employee to manage it, and a spot-on Nilin cosplayer with sharp, fitting clothes and an illuminated gauntlet hanging around the area. Yet the booth was dead. I would have […]
I have no clue why these Asians are here. Why were they hanging out in front of the Mad Catz booth, posing for people? Why was the crowd gigantic? Were they hired by Mad Catz? Are these celebrities? Who was the random Tails that jumped in with them and started posing with them? What […]
This Freya was so perfect, it was scary. Right down to the feet, man. I am disappointed I didn’t ask for a frontal shot to get more detail!
An even better treat than meeting and posing with Hugh was seeing him animatedly ask Sophia to record a Grumpy Cat skit with him! He asks her for a picture, and she simply points to her NO sign before walking away scowling. Unfortunately I combed through all his PAX recaps and this scene must […]
Hugh Jeremy was at the Natural Selection 2 booth, of course, but I didn’t expect him to be in Marine gear! I followed his casting of NS2 development on YouTube, and it was a treat to hear his Australian accent in person.
PAX is home to plenty of first looks at new products, but it was discreetly home to first buy for the extremely limited edition Pikachu Nintendo 3DS XL. There was a small kiosk at the Nintendo area, inconspicuously facing away from the main thoroughfare, that was distinct from the rest of the Nintendo attractions […]
Sophia’s Grumpy Cat costume was a big hit. Despite our reservations, people had no trouble figuring out what she was dressed up as, and that they wanted a picture with her. One of the best perks was that it allowed for effortless pairing with other cosplayers!
