From indie darlings to triple A juggernauts, the PAX showfloor was abuzz with an electric feeling. We met YouTubers Jirard the Completionist and Kinsey Burke of the Metal Jesus Crew. Both of them couldn’t be nicer. Both me and Dan got to play My Friend Pedro, Depths of Sanity, Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain, Feral Frontier and Skellboy just to name a few. While walking around, we managed to bump into two different proposals on the show floor. All in all, day 1 was a massive success. Here’s to the rest of the convention being just as excellent as the first.
