PAX East Concert and Portal 2 Review

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011

First thing’s first: Here’s the YouTube playlist for the PAX East 2011 Saturday Night Concert, featuring Video Game Orchestra, Paul and Storm, and Jonathan Coulton. A very fun, very late night.

Second: I finished the single player campaign of Portal 2 three days ago, shot this vlog two days ago, edited/rendered yesterday, and uploaded overnight. I try to talk about how much I liked the game without spoiling anything, which is harder than you may think.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Dave Does PAX East 2011 – Make A Strip Condensed/Tabletop Land

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Here’s the final two PAX East videos that I actually made any effort to edit! First up, a condensed look at what it was like to watch Gabe and Tycho make their strip in front of our eyes. Set to a song by The Who, because why not.

Next, Eric and I play a bunch of board and card games!

All that’s left is the footage from the Saturday night concerts, which is uploading now, although YouTube is being even slower than usual today. And after that, we’re done with PAX East footage and can finally move on to other things, like a list of my favorite salad dressings.

But look at me, still blogging when there’s Portal 2 to play.

I sat down with Noah “The Spoony One” Antwiler and chatted about Reb Brown, Final Fantasy, Press Start 2 Continue, and how Dr. Insano is a positive role model for young children.

Also, check out Press Start 2 Continue! My copy of the movie arrived since this was shot, and it’s a ton of fun.
