Crime Scene Investigations #006: PAX East 2014, Friday

This is a bonus segment of the Speakeasy Podcast we like to call Crime Scene Investigations. These are random bonus podcasts that we record live from various events. There is no regular schedule for these. We will put them up as quickly as we can when the opportunity for one occurs. 

PAX East was a brand new experience for us so we recorded a quick podcast after the first day. It is unedited and includes special guest Patz Prime who spent the whole con with a cough so forgive the less than polished nature of this recording.

Full articles as well as the next Speakeasy podcast will go in-depth with our experience over the wonderful PAX East weekend. Please look forward to them!

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!
