PAX East 2013: Part 1

This is our part 1 for the coverage we did at PAX East, it going to cover the new hardware that was show and Minh and I being stupid. The cosplay and other stuff will be up on Friday. The way we are going to cover the hardware is by my impression of it as I experienced it, not copy and paste specs down.

First thing I want to say is I am going to give you all a tip, parking is a nightmare. If you are coming from southern Mass, I suggest as soon as you get out of the tunnel and the convention center is on your right go straight to the parking lot that has $15 parking and walk the 100ft to the front door. We waited in traffic for 40 mins to save $3 for convention center parking, not worth being pissed off.

On to the madness that was PAX.

It looks kinda like a zombie apocalypse, people pushing and grabing.

This Asus laptop had dual screens which was so sick to play Street Fighter on your on screen. It was new bad ass Battleship.

Above is the new transformer that outputs 3D through the hdmi port, it worked pretty good. The other all in one was an undockable Windows 8/Android tablet that when undocked switched to Android but if the wifi was strong enough it would still run Windows 8. On the side was a blue button switched the OS’s seamlessly when docked. It was our favorite piece of hardware that we saw at PAX.

Mad Catz’s Girl gamer destroyed all the boys in Soul Calibur, when she had a winning streak of 12-0 without breaking a sweet we decided to leave before they pulled us on stage because no one would be left.

Minh bought that big ass sword and Laura Croft was about to shoot me, I don’t think that guy watching is going to help me.

I guess we did more playing than covering the event but whatever we only had one day, you know you would have done the same.
