8Bit Proof Episode 12: PAXtravaganza!

8Bit Proof Episode 12: PAXtravaganza!

Last month, the biggest event in the known video game universe descended on Boston, bringing developers, publishers, and gamers from all over the world to our fair city. Over the three day event, nearly 100,000 attendees flooded the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, temporarily making Boston officially the game-iest, StreetPass-iest, city in the world. We jumped in, head first, to try and cover the insanity and spread the filth of 8Bit Proof.


This episode features:

  • A special guest co-host.
  • Detailed descriptions of our hands on time with Diablo 3 on PS3, The Elder Scrolls Online, Ducktales Remastered, The Last of Us, State of Decay, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, and more.
  • Our interpretations of the exclusive video footage we witnessed of Watchdogs, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and Saint’s Row IV.
  • Our impressions of PAX East Indie games, some great, some not-so-great.
  • Our favorite Cosplayer interactions.
  • The winner of the “Tell Us What To Do at PAX” contest is declared and a free copy of Skyrim is given out.

Tattered, bruised, defeated, and drunk, we recorded two mini-shows, one each night, and combined them into one full PAX East episode. Because we love you guys, and because we know you enjoy hearing our misery, we fought off exhaustion and slapped together our very first “on location” episode. Enjoy!

8Bit Proof

Corey's been playing video games since he first climbed atop a barstool to play Duck Hunt on an arcade cabinet. He maintains an unhealthy obsession with Ducktales, the Back to the Future trilogy, and Punisher comics. If he's not playing games, you can probably find him riding his motorcycle, napping in a hammock, or weeping gently into a glass of whiskey. He also enjoys self-deprecating humor, and talking about himself in the third person.
