PAX East 2017 POST-PAX PAX-PACKED PAX POST

Posted by

Hello everyone! As it happens, every year the vast unknowable demon entities that power the gaming world have aligned and another PAX East has happened without a hitch. I was fortunate enough to once again travel with the MAGFest Jamspace crew to help do some social media coverage and go play some games so I can yell about them on the internet! As with previous editions of the “POST-X X-PACKED X POST” column, this is split up into two sections: #GAMES and #MUSIC – tagged as such so you can jump around with your fancy Find In Page function if you’d prefer to read about one over the other. Also, you should know that much of this article also appears on MAGFest’s fledgling blog, which is where you can find similar content written about MAGFest events and more in the future.

Turbo Super Post-MAG MAG-Post 2017 & Knuckles Gaiden Day One Edition

Posted by

By the time you read this, everyone should be home and happy, well rested, without the MAGFlu and otherwise readjusted to real life. While I’m WRITING it, however, I’m drowning in posts from people in transit back to the dark corners of the world they crawled from so that they can go heal themselves. While this year’s MAGFest might have been the biggest one so far, it also seems to have taken the most from us in terms of bodily health, but only because everyone was incapable of having any degree of chill. Everyone basically just kept going until they were physically unable to go anymore, and even then they just kinda propped their bodies up in chairs so they could at least look like they were still going like some kind of knock-off ‘Weekend at Bernie’s.’ It was amazing. But enough talk – let’s have at this highlight reel!

Sam Shares: 8Static Fest 2016

INCOMING TRANSMISSION


Y’ello there chip-winners!

I’m back again with another review, but this time, it’s gonna be different. I had the pleasure of going to 8Static Fest a few weeks ago (as a performer too!) and I thought what better way to share my experience of the whole event by making a review! And don’t worry, there’s plenty of memes, hence the Philadelphia chiptune scene.

Glenntai Got… Awesome Songs to Blast for your Hungover Friends

Feels vaguely familiar...

This feels vaguely familiar of bad (or great) decisions…

We’ve arrived at that time of the year once again.  St. Patrick’s Day has passed, and the world is celebrating the hangover felt around the world. While it’s no secret that the drinking scene has a chiptune problem, I figured I would share a list of songs guaranteed to make anybody hungover immediately regret being within earshot.

You may be wondering, “Wait, does this mean you think these songs aren’t good?”  That’s far from the truth.  I happen to like all of these songs; they all just happen to be heavy, loud, abrasive, or chaotic. If you’re looking for high-energy, chip thrash, or just a few ways to get revenge on your roommate  thinking “pissing all over the couch while completely shitfaced” was HILARIOUS, I’ve got you covered after the jump.
