Oatmeal For Hugs at PAX

18 Apr

Cards Against Humanity, or CAH, is the deliciously awful card game that has been growing in incredibly popularity over the last couple years. First launched in May 2011 through Kickstarter, it now has several expansions, including the “bigger blacker box” with themed box cards. It also has managed to find a niche for itself in terms of marketing, and with saucy promotions like increasing the price on Boxing Day, has caught the attention of many.

I was lucky enough to have access to one of these special promotions this past weekend at PAX East. In the much-coveted PAX swag bags were packets of PWNmeal, and inside were a random selection of 7 of the 27 special PAX East 2014 set of CAH cards. The tricky part of completing your set was now trying to find random people around the convention centre to trade, or donate, to your cause.

The PVP Podcast Episode 31 – Inflation My Ass

This week Dave and I have a lot of catching up to do – we hadn’t seen each other in a fortnight! On this episode we talk about poaching eggs, hitting people with helicopters, Sarah’s bad FPS habits, beating phone games, and we bitch about how ticked off we are bout the recent “inflation” of games in Canada, and why we call bull on it. Next time you hear from us, we will be at PAX!

Review – South Park: The Stick of Truth

12 Mar

I was cautiously optimistic about the outcome of the South Park game. I have been watching the show for over a decade, and I was afraid that the game would not do the show justice, with both the way it looked and the way it felt. As release dates were pushed back and developers went under, I continued to lose hope that it would be what I wanted. I started to wonder if it would even come out at all, but when the March 4rd date was set, and came with no further delays, I could barely contain my excitement. And I was not in the least bit disappointed.

epic.

The PVP Podcast Episode 29 – Nerves, Excitement, Do?

5 Mar

On the last podcast we talked about how Sarah would be going to PAX – well, surprise surprise: this week, Dave announced he would also be coming! We talk about what we are looking forward to and worried about for our first international convention, and what we are excited to do! We also talked about Pathfinders, Battlefield 4 not listening, new interesting books about spider blood and boar people, and how the LEGO video game is every little bit as awesome as the movie was.
