PAX East was a week ago, and it was only my second PAX ever but so far it was far more fun than the first one. I look forward to next year's PAX doing its best to top this one. Anyway, I took a lot of random video footage with my Flip camera and took some photos with my new Droid 2 phone, and thought I'd share them by putting together a video about my experience at PAX. I hope you like it, and if anyone even remotely likes video games, or even tabletop games, they should do themselves a favor and make the journey to PAX, you'll be glad you did!

One of the classes I took at Drexel this past term was Storytelling, which was a blast, if not a bit challenging for someone that has a fear of public speaking. Digital storytelling is something that I'm already a bit familiar with, having done a few videos now in the Let's Go Retro series (with more coming soon!) and so for my digital storytelling project, I made a video which definitely has the vibe of one of my LGR videos. I had a few stories that centered around video games and my youth, and went with the surprise Christmas present I got one year from my dad.
I enjoyed doing this kind of "personal story meets retro game video" thing, so I may well go back and do a couple of the other idea I had as well. Anyway, hope you enjoy watching it!
It's time for another Let's Go Retro! This time I visited a little-known game called Ghost Manor. It featured four levels and a frustrating Dracula boss that just...walks towards you. This video was pretty fun to make, I decided to get a little silly with the ending, acting like playing an old game was like going back to an old flame. I'm looking forward to the next Let's Go Retro! video, though I may go for something other than Atari next time, as I don't want it to appear this is an all-Atari video series! Maybe NES or Famicom next time? Anyway, watch, enjoy, and let me know what you think.
Um, I can't say WHY exactly this video had to be made, but only that I had to make it. I find humor in really stupid things, apparently.
Hi all! So I'm pretty excited about this, I've been wanting to do a video feature for some time now. I know this video seems amateurish, but hey, this is my first one, I'm totally an amateur at this right now! I'm thinking this video feature will focus mainly on retro games and the occasional import game as well. Comments will be greatly appreciated as I'm looking forward to seeing what people think of this, and I can't wait to make more of them!
