Gearing Down: The Post-PAX Swag Round-Up - Page 2

Jason Love

What was your most pleasant surprise of the show?
Army of Two: The 40th Day; I went in to the community event with expectations set appropriately and had them completely blown away once I got to play the game. There might be a few things here and there that they could tweak, but overall, it is looking really good.

What was the biggest disappointment for you?
Not getting a chance to test out Borderlands (also, Mike not being there :( )

What is your favorite swag item?
Probably the Tales of Monkey Island print. Not only is it signed by Dave Grossman and Dominic Armato, but it makes for an excellent center piece in any room in your house.

What is your least favorite?
All the cards/codes things that were handed out left and right. Yes, it makes them easier to take home, but that assumes I don't accidentally huck them away.

What was the most interesting swag to get?
A slice of pizza at the Borderlands panel.

What was your most pleasant surprise of the show?
Easily Brink. Eight-player drop-in/drop-out online co-op in a shooter by Bethesda? Yes, please!
Close behind that is Red Dead Redemption, which to me is GTA IV in the old west with the aiming system fixed. (Yes, precision aiming is included. Shut up, iron sights haters.)

What was the biggest disappointment for you?
I was upset that the Activision was a complete no-show. I really wanted to have hands-on impressions of Modern Warfare 2's Special Ops and DJ Hero.

What is your favorite swag item?
By far the free copy of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic on Steam.

What is your least favorite?
Had to be the temporary tatoos. They were cool looking -- especially the Shank one -- but useless to me. I can't even use them as a bookmark.

What was the most interesting swag to get?
We got The Beatles: Rock Band Xbox 360 Avatar shirts for performing on stage. That was the most fun and grueling for me!

 

Whew! Now we get to sort all the junk out, mail out souvenirs, and throw the shirts in the laundry.

PAX previews and post-event news snippets are still funneling down steadily, so keep checking back as always, and thanks everyone for your feedback and support during this event!
