A Convention for Casuals and Hardcore Fans
The beginning of “Convention season” always get me excited for PAX East which is in the first quarter of the year. PAX; or Penny Arcade Expo, started out in Washington for their first show in 2004. Since then it expanded to Boston in 2010 and it has been growing ever since. What makes this special for me is that it’s a convention focused only on games and not just video games.
Another uneventful day of world quests in World of Warcraft Legion had gone by when I had the sudden urge to check out theindiebox for their Indie Game Collector Editions. It’s the collector’s edition content without the outrageous price tag. I’d been wary of subscription services for “Geek Items” ever since I had many consecutive months of disliking the boxes I received through Loot Crate (Sorry guys. The first year was amazing, but then it lost its’ spark). That day I was surprised to see Owlboy a game I had been following for a while had a Standard Edition, but no collectors yet so I looked around on the rest of the site. That’s when a game called “Moon Hunters” caught my eye.
