PAX Prime & Seattle Loot

PAX Prime 2014 free loot

Since last week was all about recounting my adventures at this year’s PAX Prime, I thought I’d take a little time here to show you some of the loot I brought back with me.

Behold my spoils and…

PAX Prime 2014 Part III: Games, Games, Games

Alright, now for the part of my PAX Prime 2014 recap that I know y’all are actually interested in: The Games.

Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Seconds: Review & Signing

Seconds Dedication

Like pretty much everyone else on the internet, I was super excited to learn that Canadian cartoonist Bryan Lee O’Malley would finally be releasing a new comic. I love all things Scott Pilgrim (books, game, movie…) and Rick and I actually read the book as part of our courtship. We were really able to see ourselves in the characters of Scott and Ramona and I even convinced Rick to dress as Scott to my Ramona that year for Halloween. His…
