Bigger doesn’t mean better: PAX Indie Games

Charlie Murder 2

Nearly 70,000 people got together in the Washington State Convention Center last weekend for the fan centered event that is PAX Prime 2011. As a gamer, you know that for me PAX is a special celebrational yearly event very much akin to Christmas. I’m not only saying that because I get to swag hunt like a hungry …

Analog Gaming with a Digital Touch

Gettin’ Hammered – Steampunk Edition

Hammer

As Karma brought up earlier this week (see the post here), the GVL crew will all be in attendance for a Chinese steampunk themed wedding. There are only four days left now before the big day, and that means that I needed to set up my own costume fast. Since you already know, after reading …
