Infamous: Second Son is the third full game of the karmatic based Infamous series where the last two games have gone something like this: Meet main character, get back story, get powers, meet boss, get more power, face boss and find out their intention for this whole mess of a superhero plot all while making binary choices on being either the hero or the anti-hero. Second Son doesn’t disappoint on following the template but it throws in enough curves and graphical hooks to make the game the most memorable, playable Infamous to date.
Pax East is this weekend and alongside it comes memories to be had and to be made. So we thought we’d just jump in and share our favorite memory (in one’s case, memories) of Pax.
The 5th annual PAX East convention is only two weeks away and our hype levels are on the rise as well as our coverage. I’ve been to other conventions but there’s something about PAX that brings out the awesome in people. There’s always this group aura generated by everyone over the fact that we’re all attending for the same reason: To have a good time over the “nerd” culture we love. When you’re laughing, almost everyone else around is laughing, too. When you’re suffering in a two hour long line, everyone else is suffering but that doesn’t stop you from challenging the guy next you with a 3DS to in impromptu Pokémon battle. You’ll never see a collection of people act so civil especially over a rabid fandom like video games.
Smoked almonds? Not my favorite but they’ll do.
But if this is your first convention or your 100th, you should know you have to be prepared. If you go into this thing ill-equipped, you may get drowned in a sea of full hands and annoying setbacks. Here are the five things that every PAX goer should have on their person to survive the weekend.
