PAX East Tickets Now on Sale:

If you want to go PAX East, now's your chance. Tickets have just now gone on sale and predictably, the site is down due to the massive influx of people trying to get their tickets.

If you want to hit F5 and try to get your own, the registration link does work eventually, and honestly, while it isn't snappy, it's much better than past years.


PAX East is held each year in Boston at the Boston Civic Center and has proven so popular, an extra day has been added. That puts it in-line with PAX West, formerly known as PAX Prime, which is the original event held each year in Seattle.

PAX East no longer offers 3-day passes, so if you want to attend for the whole weekend you need to grab an individual pass for each day.

If you haven't been to a PAX before, it's a super fun time and celebrates all things gaming, from tabletop to classic arcades and upcoming releases. It's also an awesome place to see some incredible cosplay.

RUN, ESCAPE FROM THE HORROR OF RUNESCAPE'S HALLOWEEN EVENTS SPOOKTACULAR - IF YOU CAN!

CAMBRIDGE, UK - Oct. 30, 2017 - Darkness falls across the land of Gielinor in both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape from today, as players of the two MMORPGs experience the horror unleashed in their Halloween events. In Ghost Stories of Gielinor, RuneScape players will discover and play through pages of spooky tales across the game world and compile them into the Ghastly Grimoire; meanwhile, in Old School RuneScape, can players overcome and survive Jonas, a hockey-mask-like-wearing-killer stalking Gielinor?

Written by RuneScape developers and players, the tales featured in Ghost Stories of Gielinor take participants on a journey of terror, beginning with a meeting with a mysterious figure known as 'Closure'. Those brave enough to collect and experience the tales first hand will bring them together into a great tome, as well as unlock a new cosmetic item to remember this year's Halloween by: The headless rider outfit.

Old School RuneScape's event was teased on Friday the 13th this month, where a masked individual was first spotted across the game's free-to-play areas - but now the stakes have been raised, and the spectre of Jonas is on a deadly hunt for victims. Successful participants will receive the mask worn by Jonas, while players can also turn their character's skin a lovely shade of 'Zombie Blue'.

'DIMENSION OF THE DAMNED' IS RUNESCAPE'S ALL-NEW COMPETITIVE GAMING 10-DAY ZOMBIE SURVIVAL CHALLENGE

When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk Gielinor and there's 200 million in-game gold pieces to be won by the player who can survive the longest.
CAMBRIDGE, UK - Oct. 16, 2017 - RuneScape has today opened a door to the Dimension of the Damned, a brand-new, survive-at-all-cost, PvE competitive gaming experience. Available for 10 days only, Dimension of the Damned sees players thrown into an alternate undead dimension where the dead are rising in droves.
In this parallel RuneScape universe, zombies are spawning everywhere and players must scramble for resources against the bloodthirsty hordes baying for their blood. Players must get their score as high as possible over a one-hour session and can attempt multiple sessions, but only their best will be considered for their entry to the final showdown. Taking place on October 28th, the highest scoring 1,000 players will compete in a last-person-standing, 90-minute endgame to be crowned King or Queen of the Damned.
"We've played with the idea of survival modes in RuneScape in the past, most notably with our DarkScape experiment a couple of years ago, and they've proved popular. However, as a purely PvE survival game mode, Dimension of the Damned is quite unlike anything we've released before," said Matt Casey, Senior Product Manager, RuneScape. "We're really looking forward to seeing how tactics develop over the coming days as players try to reach the finale and compete to win an incredible set of prizes, but with only 1,000 places available in the endgame expect the competition to be stiff and full of rigor (mortis)."
Dimension of the Damned is open to both RuneScape newcomers and veterans and, so all players experience the mode on a level playing field, brave souls must create new characters. These slayer-to-be characters will be rewarded with maxed-out skills during their valiant effort against the undead.
Set in the free-to-play areas of Gielinor, and with PvP disabled, Dimension of the Damned features a range of rewards for players to claim. Every participant will receive a survivor outfit and the RIP axe; the 1,000 finalists will also win a new 'The Damned' title; those in the final 10 will also have their names engraved on the statue in Falador and a Dimension of the Damned pet; and the final five will have further prizes of an all-expenses paid trip to Jagex and a year's Premier Club membership for free. The winner, in addition to bagging all previous prizes, will secure 200 million GP, lifetime RuneScape membership, a real-world zombie award, and the title 'King/Queen of the Damned'.

The Keyboard is Mightier Than the Revolver - G2A Deal #7

Hong Kong - Oct. 5, 2017 - G2A.COM, the premier digital marketplace for gaming products, has unveiled its latest bundle of games in a deal that's hard to pass up. G2A Deal #7 comes rocking with five titles in five different genres, including a tactical RPG, puzzle platformer, and even a good old-fashioned farm simulator. The list of games in the pack includes Plantera, Alien Shooter TD, The Beggar's Ride, Dungeon Rushers, and Western Press, all of which come straight from the developers and publishers themselves, with no third-party sellers involved. The bundle will cost €2.49 with a subscription, or €2.99 as a one-time purchase.

Below are details for each game:

  • Plantera - Are you dreaming of a garden but live in a concrete jungle? Then let your gardening dreams come true as you harvest plants and collect fruits and vegetables in your very own virtual garden. This casual farming simulator comes ripe with little blue helpers, irksome critters, and coins galore.
  • Alien Shooter TD - This Tower Defense game based on the legendary Alien Shooter series is perfect for the hero who doesn't mind getting their hands dirty. Resist countless waves of blood-thirsty invaders, build towers, and command an elite warrior platoon all in the hopes of rescuing humanity.
  • The Beggar's Ride - Embody a beggar-turned-hero in this unique platform puzzle adventure game. Join an old beggar on his journey to distant lands as you use God-like powers granted by ancient masks to solve puzzles and direct the forces of nature.

Find out in this 2D tactical RPG game with turn-based combat and see just how many dungeons you can loot. Assemble a heroic dream team, craft new equipment, and even build your own trap-rigged dungeons.
  • Western Press - Can you type your opponents to death? Apparently, you can in this frontier dueling game. The rules are simple - you compete in a tournament of up to 16 players (or bots), and whoever types a 10-character string faster wins the duel and ultimately the entire competition.

All keys included in this edition of G2A Deal will be available immediately after purchase as Steam codes and will not be region-locked.
