PAX East 2013 – The Cosplay of PAX East 2013 Day 2

Just amazing

Just amazing

What a day at PAX East 2013. Saturday is traditionally the busiest day of the show, and this year was no exception. I dedicated the entire day to seeking out the best cosplayers in the show and snapped a ton of photos.  It was such a pleasure to interact and mingle with everyone, and it was easy to see how much hard work went into the costumes. I was also excited to see a lot of Borderlands cosplay, including a bunch of characters I wouldn’t have expected. Awesome! Alright, you didn’t come here to see me writing a bunch of words, so let’s get right down to it.

I did a pretty cool video of one of the cosplay’s that caught my eye as it came in. It looked to be a robot, but as it turns out, there was someone inside. I’ve been told it was supposed to be Clockwork Droid from Dr. Who. Pretty cool video:

Here are many of the amazing cosplay costumes from Day 2 of PAX East 2013 (click here for Day 1):

BioShock Movie Director Drops Off The Project

As reported by Indie Wire, the 2K Games BioShock film adaptation has bumped into another hurdle with Juan Carlos Fresnadillo leaving his role as Director.

At a press junket for his new film Intruders, Fresnadillo stated, “To be honest, by now, I’m completely out of that and developing other stuff. Right now it’s on hold. The studio and the video game company, they have to reach some kind of agreement about the budget and the rating.”

Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean) was originally set to direct the BioShock film in 2008 when it was first announced, but he was moved to a producer role, opening the position of Director to Fresnadillo. With it now being 2012 and coming across these snags, some fans and hopefuls may worry about the future of this project. Last November, creator Ken Levine stated that he is in no rush to push this movie out the door. “For us there’s no burning [desire] to have a movie made just to get it made,” said Levine.

XCOM E3 Trailer

The makers of Bioshock are at it again! 2K has dropped the E3 trailer for XCOM and it looks like it could be a show stealer. You can definitely see the Bioshock influence at play, as it could very well be going on just above the surface of Rapture. I can’t wait to see more:

Recession Proof Gaming 6/13-19

Two stores have some pretty hot deals that we think are definitely worth your attention. If you have been putting off adding any of these titles to your collection, this may be as cheap as it gets for a while. Walmart, Best Buy and Toys R Us did not have any sales worth mentioning in their circulars this week, but K-Mart and Target have more than made up for it. Keep in mind, most stores do price matching, so if you can get your hands on a hard copy of either of these circulars, odds are you can score these deals if you don’t have a K-Mart or Target near you. Here we go:


Backbreaker – $34.99

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 – $39.99

BioShock – $14.99

Full list of Games On Demand titles for September

Yesterday we told you what you’d be getting to download on the marketplace right now regarding Games On Demand, but now we have the full list of titles to expect for the month of September courtesy of Kotaku (and a few of these don’t disappoint, actually). FIFA Street 3 for all of our overseas fans will see daylight on the marketplace September 15th, which is being joined by Shaun White: Snowboarding and the first episode from the Fable 2: Game Episodes series of episodic Fable 2 downloads later in the month. These titles join Civilization Revolution and Bioshock that we reported on yesterday. Sounds like Microsoft is adamant on keeping the growth of the library consistent. At least the game selection is nice. See below for more details on exact dates and releases for specific regions.


Civilization Revolution (September 8, so…today)
FIFA Street 3 (September 15)
Shaun White Snowboarding (September 22)
Fable II: Game Episodes: Episode 1 (September 29)


BioShock (September 8)
Civilization Revolution (Germany only, September 8)
FIFA Street 3 (September 15)
Shaun White Snowboarding (September 22)
Fable II: Game Episodes: Episode 1 (September 29)


FIFA Street 3 (September 15)
Shaun White Snowboarding (September 22)
Fable II: Game Episodes: Episode 1 (excluding Japan & Korea, September 29)

Bioshock, CivRev4, and more to the Games on Demand catalog

Xbox has just updated the list of available games for their Games on Demand marketplace today, and I think they’re games worth checking out. Big Daddy and his Little Sister stomps onto the marketplace for $29.99 in North American regions, while Civilization Revolution 4 sails into the port for the same price. Even with these being some nice offerings to the Games On Demand marketplace, I still think the pricing paradigm Microsoft has introduced with it is the spawn of the devil. These games can be had for much lower, not used, in retail stores. If this is your thing then happy gaming, but I’m going to go ahead and continue my crusade against Microsoft and their Gouging Games On Demand.

Oh, and there were also some other Japanese games that got added, but you can check those out for yourself at Major Nelson’s blog.
