“Well met, fellow adventurer!” says the odd-looking little human in front of you. “Are you tired of always risking life and limb in dark, dank dungeons with little return? Do you spend countless hours at the local tavern waiting for quests to turn up? Or perhaps you have been swindled by stingy town folk after purging their hamlet of its evil denizens? Well, my friends, you are in luck! Acquisitions Incorporated is a playbook for those adventurers who want to not only make their lives better financially, but also improve their home/work balance. Sound great? Well then, just keep listening, for it gets even better!
At this year’s PAX South, Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik, the creators of the popular web comic Penny Arcade, announced a brand new Expo called PAX Unplugged. Unlike the current PAX conventions, which have a large video game focus, PAX Unplugged will concentrate exclusively on tabletop games. “With the rise of popularity of board games, we wanted to provide a dedicated space where fans can come together,” said Holkins. “We will continue to have tabletop games at every PAX, but Unplugged will focus on stepping away from the TV, monitor and phone to foster face-to-face multiplayer experiences.”
In conjunction with ReedPOP, this sixth addition to the current line-up of PAX events will debut this year from November 17th-19th in Philadelphia’s Pennsylvania Convention Center. Read ReedPOP and Penny Arcade’s vision for it here below.
Each and every week “Americana Assassin” MK2Fac3 and “Midwest Marauder” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of June 20, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
Whhaaaaat?!!? You remember me, right? Well, I apologize for the lack of fac3 (faceless?) time on these here websites. A lot has changed recently and Tuesdays and Wednesdays have become even busier for me recently, what with the new job and all… (pausing for congratulatory high fives), so I’ve been away for like a week or something and some have said that I phoned in the previous week’s, but to those people (HENCHMAN!!!), I say this, “I’m back, BABAY!” And there have been some truly amazing comic books over the last few weeks. Did you guys read Creator Owned Heroes? I may be jumping the gun a little bit since it’s only been one issue, but I honestly think it could be a game changer. And while this week may not be jam packed full of potential game-changers, there’s some really good stuff to look forward to. So, follow me past the break, so that we can talk about all the great comics that are coming out this week. This is The GoD List, after all.
