PAX West 2016 Thread: Less Prime, More CAG

29 April 2016 - 05:52 PM

Hi everyone!
Okay, time to update this thread for realz. This will be my seventh PAX, my sixth Prime/West, and my sixth time hosting the unofficial CAG Meetup. Welcome to the 2016 thread! :grouphug:

Important Notices and Updates:
- Passes have been shipped. If you haven't gotten them yet, watch your mailboxes! Also note that the letter inside contains various updates as to where some stuff'll be this year.
- As usual, see the post below for all basic PAX and Seattle info.
- If you're currently trying to get passes, through eBay, Craigslist, Reddit, or whereever, be mindful of bootlegs. Also, according to some posters on NeoGAF (here, here, and here), there's a good chance that the longer you wait, the cheaper your options will get. In general: common sense.
- If you have extra passes and want to offer them to your fellow CAGs, please follow CAG rules and proper decorum for sales/trades. Keep in mind that this is not a trading thread. You are free to post that you have and/or are looking for passes, but please do not spam this thread with such notices; conduct as much of your business as possible via trade lists and/or PMs. If this thread gets too large/busy with requests/offers, I will list them here for convenience's sake.
- Another place to buy/sell passes: DemonsMaster recommends this Reddit community.

Post-PAX CAG Meetup
Rock Bottom Brewery has worked out for us for most of the previous meetups, so let's do it again, okay? :)

Oh, and if you're new to this, note that this is an unofficial meetup that is neither sponsored nor endorsed by Cheap Ass Gamer (though staff members are of course welcome)! Everyone is expected to cover their own food, drinks, and tips.

If you have any questions, please post them here or shoot me a PM.

- DATE/TIME: Monday, September 5th; arrive by 7PM

Previous Years' PAX Prime/West Threads: 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014 | 2015

Old updates:

RPG Thread XX has over 100 hours of gameplay

01 January 2016 - 05:49 PM

It's been two years (two years!) since we had a new one of these, so let's do it.

2015 was a pretty good year for RPGs! Fallout 4 came out, and so did Xenoblade Chronicles X, Pillars of Eternity, The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC, Undertale, and a handful of other quality games.

2016's looking to be pretty good so far, too. Maybe some more Kickstarted games will finally come out (looking at you Barkley 2 and Cosmic Star Heroine). Maybe Final Fantasy XV will finally come out, too. There's also the next Tales, the next Bravely, the next XCOM, that Paper Mario/Mario & Luigi crossover, and the long-awaited 3DS remake of Dragon Quest VII.

But, let's not kid ourselves. We'll halt our progress on any and all of these games once this lands:


In the meantime, I'll be over here working on my backlog :razz:
Happy New Year, everyone!
