Prying Questions With Danny Pryor – Welcome To Warp Zone: PAX EAST 2014

Posted by

In the past, I have helped write a couple FAQs when dealing with different levels and bosses, but once you have become a seasoned player, you might be looking for a more tailored experience. There are many methods for achieving this, from button combinations  to sound test codes, but my personal recommendation is finding the closest warp zone to you and navigating through the mayhem! My recent adventure led me to the realm of PAX EAST, located in world Boston-MA. Although I kept a detailed log of all my encounters in this mysterious yet familiar land, sadly I only collected 3 OUT OF 20 pages, which detail some of my exploits.

JOURNAL ENTRY #1

Boston 8 Bit has collected some of the finest artists for both the Jamspace and Chip Stage as they have done in the past, and the talent here is insurmountable! Sam Mulligan started off the day playing some of his famous hits and then OMG! SHARK PARTY! I didn’t think I would make it through until The World Is Square told me to “let go” and a fight broke out between myself and the flying shark boss. I managed to defeat it with my remaining flame rounds and a quick visit to what I like to call Knife City a.k.a. circling around it and swiping my combat blade. Note to self: Save more ammo.

JOURNAL ENTRY # 2

It seems like a chipstorm has been running wild on the 2nd floor for what seems like forever. I managed to pick up some audio feed of them through geekbeatradio and I could already tell that they were ready to play it loud. I rushed through the crowds of assorted women and men, hoping I could resolve the issue before it got out of hand. I could see the creation of something spectacular happening, a vortex of red pixel dust spewing forth from the primordial booze. I knew my ace in the hole was to explain everything in depth in this audio log. This is where you can go to save yourself  ***STATIC*** ROOM 207 ***STATIC*** DEVOURED!!!! THE CAPTAIN IS DEAD AND SO ARE WE!!!!

 

We Know

 

 

 

 

 

 

JOURNAL ENTRY #3

I have finally arrived outside the city, at a location only known as Comicazi. Here I met the honorable Bifflecup, composer extraordinaire. My companions Astro Logic and Best Defense arrive with me, each of us carrying the sacred songs of our ancestors. We know we must all perform, each at a different time, in order to complete the quest and send the dragons/demons/evil things back from whence they came. Surrounded by ancient books and artifacts of days of old, I hope to find the courage to display my strength as I begin to slowly make my way towards fulfilling my destiny. I am nervous as I stand among everyone and I hope that…oh I’m sorry… They want me to stop writing now and play the songs. Nope…Nope…Seems a bit too late now…Demons everywhere…Stupid journal.

Hmmm…well then… I should probably get more than three journal entries next time. It’s those collectible achievements…I swear you can NEVER get them all in one go. You have to play the same game like 20 times in some cases.

Wellllpppp… GUESS I SHOULD HIT PAX EAST AGAIN NEXT YEAR!!!

Straight from the mouth of MAGFest’s very own Nick the Newbie:

“What in the ever loving shit is “Jamspace”? Jamspace is music all day every day during pax. We’ve got chiptunes, live video game cover bands, DJs, and even open jam time with provided instruments. We’ve got guitar, bass, drums, and keyboard for playing, or you can even bring your own instruments! Follow @MAGFest on twitter for updates of what’s going on all weekend.”

Fri-Sun schedule:
Friday 3/22, 3-5pm: The World Is Square, Random aka MegaRan
Saturday 3/23, 3-5pm: Lords of Thunder, Armcannon

Regarding the bulk of the scheduled chipmusic shows happening in the Jamspace…

chipstage banner

A very first for PAX East, the CHIPstage is essentially a separate Jamspace for chipartists & Djs! Bring your chippy and/or electronic jams & showcase ’em LIVE AT PAX!!!

On top of that, there’ll also be a good chance of any or all of the following happening at CHIPstage:

  • random gaming &/or tourneys
  • ridiculous contests (dickbutt drawing contest anyone? :3 )
  • a guaranteed on stage suplex for every artist who suffers a DMG crash while performing (J/k! Maybe… ♥)
  • really stupid dance offs (Hoodie shuffle comin’ ‘atcha! 8)
  • VERY SPECIAL music events & guests
  • WHO KNOWS WTF ELSE?!?

In summation, NONSTOP ZOMBOCON. 8)
