Pre-PAX East 2014: Feels Like the First Time

(note: No Type-Moon Weekly News Round Up or All Points Bulletin this week.)

It has been a long time since either of us was a first-time con-goer, but that is what we are when it comes to the PAX East and gaming conventions! Everyone talks so highly of this convention that we finally got roped into going. Look for us around the convention. We’ll be attending tons of panels and concerts, plus tweeting up a storm, and you might even get our Miis on Streetpass!
