*FINAL DAY* Contest – Win My PAXEast Swag Bag!!! | Level Up News

*FINAL DAY* Contest – Win My PAXEast Swag Bag!!!

 

That's a lotta crap!!! And you can win it!!!!

 

*****THIS IS THE FINAL DAY FOR THE CONTEST, PAXEAST COVERAGE IS DONE AND I WILL BE STARTING TO PICK THE WINNER TOMMOROW, MARCH 6TH, AT 8PM. GET YOUR ENTRY IN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, IT IS A PRETTY DECENT PRIZE IF I DO SAY SO MYSELF.***** 

PAXEast is over and I am back from Boston after an exhausting weekend of video games, beer and hamburgers stuffed with macaroni and cheese (so goddamn good!). 

The main problem with PAX is that you come back with all this swag, more than anyone could ever find a use for. That is why I will be giving away my swag from the recent PAXEast, even stuff you have absolutely no use for! You will get everything I was able to obtain for free, minus an Aperture Science shirt (sorry Portal fans). Curious as to what this bag of madness contains, well here is the jist of it: 

  • 5 L.A. Noire Stickers
  • 1 L.A. Noire Shirt Size XL
  • 2 L.A. Noire Posters
  • 1 Rockstar Games Logo Sticker
  • 1 Rockstar Games Paper Bag
  • 5 Brink Passports (which would get you into a party that has already happened)
  • 2 Brink Posters
  • 2 Plants vs. Zombies bumper stickers
  • 1 Plants vs. Zombies Cardboard Traffic Cone Hat (Some assembly required, and I needed to carry it in the rain)
  • 1 F.E.A.R. 3 fridge magnet/picture frame thing
  • 1 Dungeons and Dragons Online Game Client Install Disc
  • 1 Download code for PAX Exclusive Pirate Hat in DDO
  • 1 DDO Pin
  • 1 DDO Messenger Bag
  • 1 Lord of the Rings Online Game Client Install Disc
  • 1 Download code for PAX Exclusive Mount in LotR Online
  • 1 LotR Online Messanger Bag
  • 1 Brink Shirt Size S
  • 1 Brink Shirt Size L (This was exclusive to the iam8bit party I believe)
  • 1 Brink Mask *note – I wore this mask for about 20 seconds, but I was fresh out of the shower when I did* (This I know was only given out to a small handful of people at the iam8bit Brink party)
  • 1 Dragon Nest Shirt Size XXL
  • 1 RAGE Shirt Size XL (This shirt was exclusively for people who attended the RAGE Panel)
  • 1 League of Legends Download Code for a PAX exclusive Cardboard Tube Samurai skin
  • 2 Ms. ‘Splosion Man pins
  • 1 Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon Flyswatter
  • 1 Gunnar Optiks Lanyard
  • 2 Magic Card Decks (maybe 3, but two will be identical)
  • 1 The Behemoth Squeezy Chicken (The guys that made Castle Crashers)
  • 1 Mega 64 2010 Convention Exclusive DVD, signed by Rocco, Sean and Derrick
  • 1 Duke Nukem Forever Bottle Opener
  • 1 Red Faction: Armageddon Shirt Size XXL
  • 1 Dragon Nest/Vindictus Lanyard
  • 1 PAX exclusive Download Code for a special Cardboard Tube Samurai skin in Monday Night Combat for PC
  • and 1 Giant Ass Dragon Nest/Vindictus Swag Bag

I am not gonna lie, getting everything back from PAXEast without losing or breaking anything is pretty hard to do, and I did the inventory before I left the convention. So there may be less, or maybe even more than I have listed here. If I find anything missing I will post an update. I may even throw something else in the bag, I make no promises. And I have a small place, so you get everything on the list. 

So I bet you are wondering, how can I win this massive collection of… stuff? Well that is easy, all you need to do is respond to this post, or you can also become a fan of Level Up News on Facebook and respond to the status update about this post. But not just any response will do… oh no… Since you didn’t go to PAXEast I want to know why you missed it, so all you need to do is explain to me why you didn’t go to PAXEast and why you missed out on getting most of this stuff yourself. I will personally pick 5 people who I feel had the best excuse, and the Level Up News editors and staff will vote from those 5 on who is the winner. Be creative with your answer, cause it doesn’t need to be a real excuse. I know most of you just prolly couldn’t afford it, but you can come up with something better than that. 

This contest is open to US residents only, and if you write for Level Up News or are directly related to someone who does you will not be able to enter (sorry loved ones and Canadians). The contest is open from this moment until I finish writing all my PAXEast experiences. I played a lot of games and talked to a lot of people, so I have a lot to write. And with an upwards of 50 hour work week, the fact that I am about to move into my new home, a few reviews I am working on, and the fact that I am pretty lazy this could take some time. Could be one week, could be one month. But hey, it costs nothing to enter, and odds are at least one shirt will fit you, so get on it and enter. 

My PAXEast coverage begins now with a hands on preview of The Darkness II, hope you enjoy it. And please support the companies I talk about, while some of them are major companies (2k, EA, Rockstar) many of them are smaller developers (Autumn, Twisted Pixel, sKa Studios) that depend on our support. They are great guys and they make great games, I wouldn’t lie to you. 

*When you leave a response on here you do not need to leave your email address, but bear in mind that if you don’t leave your email address I have no way to get in contact with you*

    I missed PAX East because I joined JPS and was going to E3 and had to save my money for that. Sadly I quit for reasons I wont post, and couldn’t find the resources to make it there in time.

    I’m old… I really, really, really wanted to go to PAX. Not only this year but every year. But if I have to choose between my job, and supporting my two young gamer children; and a fun filled adult weekend attending the video game convention of the year. I have to go with the job and kids. 😉

    I’m an evil girlfriend who decided to be selfish and bitchy rather than allow my wonderful boyfriend the chance to go. I feel horrible about making him miss it, and I am hoping that I can redeem myself to some extent by winning this for him. I told him to write about how his bitchy girlfriend wouldn’t let him go, but he didn’t want to do that, so I decided to instead….

  8. Optional: Name says:

    A Penny Arcade Expo was obviously beneath a man of my caliber (you can’t see them but each of the keys my butler is striking for me hold more value than that unit of currency). No, I would require something in line with my status, something at least one hundred times as grand. A… Silver Dollar Arcade Expo if you will. A place where one could go to escape those that flock to something like PA”X” (it seems even the simple art of acronym was too much for them). So onto Google at my behest “S.D.A.E.” was typed.

    “I’ve found it your highness” yes, I pay him for that title.

    Just like that my staff readied the jet and soon I was off to Austria, where I hear they won’t even accept such an insignificant scrap of change.

    X for Effort?

    For months…days on end, I would make sure to remember this event of epic proportionalitude. Every day…”Hey, Jim! We can’t forget about PAX!” *Jim writes it down in his little black book* One day we were playing our most intense game of Halo. I said, “Am I supposed to remember something?” *Jim shrugs*. Hmm. Then, THAT DAY comes. I sprung from bed and yelled, “PAX!” Jim runs in, “What was that?! It sounded like a little woman screaming!” “We forgot!” I jump on my computer. There it was. “March 13th, Last day of PAX.” We looked at eachother. “It’s too late. We missed it.” And that, is how I missed PAX.

    I missed PAX because it was my daughters birthday on March 11. We live in Vermont, and ended up driving to NH to shop. I was a an hour away max , and my sister lives in Cambridge, Mass. I had the perfect set up, but maturity prevails and I held shopping bags all day instead of bags of swag. They ironic thing is my daughter really wanted to go to PAX , she loved Comic Con. Maybe next year

    Well I would have gone, but im going to tell you a secret. There is radiations outside. They are very dangerous particulars. I have goggles…. but the goggles… they do nothing. I couldnt risk it. So I will be staying indoors for the foreseeable future. I have a supply of chedder cheese tater tots, bulletstorm, DA2 and league of legends. My only worry it the lack of swag.

    Seeing as my baby girl Biella’s first birthday was on March 12 there was no way I could make it to Pax East. Spending time with my daughter is more important than any game or convention. I’m sure it was a blast none the less and I might even be able to convince the wife to let me take her to one for her birthday!

    Well, I was kidnapped by monkeys, but not just ant monkeys, mutant ninja monkeys. It really sucked since I was on my way to PAX East. They took me to their leader named Bo Bo. Bo Bo told me that he was going to kidnap EVERY person on their way to PAX East so no human would be able to attend. He wanted him and his monkey friends to be the only attendees. I told him that his plan would never work. He just laughed and snapped his fingers. Two monkey hoes walked in and stood beside him. He said goodbye and left the room. I was suddenly dragged out of the room and thrown in a prison cell. There where other people there too. I happened to have pack of C4 on me so I blew out the wall. I found a room with lots of silenced AK-47’s. I took one and killed all of the monkeys. I found a car and used it to attempt to drive to PAX East. When I finally got there, I still had the Ak-47 on me. The police arrested me when I attempted to park my car. What happened next is a whole different story.

    Over the years, we see PAX roll in and roll out… much like an Autobot… but what we rarely see is what can be left behind. Not because of the game-related graffiti or the remnants of droves of people unable to hold their liquor… rather, I chose not to attend PAX East because I suffer from an irrational fear of catching a rare form of a sickness known by many. Many refer to this illness as the “Flu,” but we know better than to accept its simple name. We have seen the various strains make their way across the country and their consequences: West coast received H1Nerd1, while south-easterners mutated into the dreaded “Geek Flu,” while medieval attendees simply described it as “the plague,” but herein the south it’s called “The Vidjya Game Bug” I wanted to avoid catching this disease, which has been known to make game enthusiasts susceptible to physical damage, magical damage and severely weaken their shields.

    Irrational? Possibly, but it could have happened in the past (or the future, depending on whether you are experiencing a time shift or simply on a joyride in your Delorean). The end result? I was not able to attend. There was no gathering ofmonopoly money and crudely paste US Presidents on them… being sat in front of a kid kicking the chair or behind a 4 foot individual who requires the full recline position for a 4 hour plane ride…. no lost luggage… and no becoming the Mayor of a CDC Quarantine on 4Square.

    Of course, it would have all been worth it for just a taste of that sweet, sweet swag… but it was just not in the cards for me this year. Maybe next year I will overcome my fear… or simply stock up on surgical masks and latex gloves.

  22. I can explain why I missed PAXEast in two words — Hot Forest Nymph. Yeah, yeah. A broad. I know, rookie mistake. Hero Rule #XVII, don’t be a sucker for a pretty face. But Satyrs and Forest Nymphs have a certain chemistry~

    I ran into her sobbing about her forest being threatened by a Cyclops. Now a Cyclops isn’t anything major, so I figured my boy Herc could fly on over with his winged horse and whoop the thing in a demi-minute and we could be on our way to PAXEast.

    And oh buddy, did we NEED to go there. I heard there was this “League of Legends” meetup there and I wanted to go there to expose them as the frauds they are. They call themselves “Heroes”. A hero is only as good as his weapon (Hero Rule #XVI [seriously]). It’s true a weapon won’t make a hero, but you can’t be one with a street-lantern.

    Apparently there’s a Grandmaster at Arms known as Jax in the League who has the largest consecutive win record to date. And he uses a brass street-lantern as a weapon. Well he normally does. At PAXEast, he’s apparently debuting his “special weapon”. Yeah, special. Real special like that Icarus kid.

    If you attend, he was supposed to fight using a cardboard toilet paper roll dressed like a Man of Pac. I wanted to burst into his fight, give him a sword, and PERSONALLY challenge him to fight MY champ – the very own son of Zeus.

    Sadly, it turns out it wasn’t just any old Cyclops. He was pitch black, cast no shadow and had a flaming eye. A talkative guy though. The Cyclops called himself Aku. After some hero action from Herc, Aku said he’ll change his ways, wanted to join forces with Herculus, yadda-yadda-yadda.

    Come on buddy, Hero Rule #LXXIII, a hero is more than a sandwich. But then Aku /tore/ open a portal and flung us into a distant future.

    Oh man was I ticked. It was like my Ma ignoring my efforts and just praising my brother’s shoe sales. But hey, the future was alright for a bit and we ended up finding a PAXMest. Not certain what Mest is, but we were apparently there.

    The so-called “League of Legends” was too. And the great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandson of Jax was there. But he used some sword called the Masamune. I never saw such a fine blade! Could split a hair dropping of its own accord straight in two! Made my horns tingle just holding it. It was long, singled edged, and nearly destroyed the world in the left hand of a legendary villain. I thought this kid had some smarts over his not so great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather, but the future is scary.

    Picked up this little tube some badger was holding and blew out a dart that destroyed the entire convention. Heh, and I thought I was ticked. Worked out for us though. As punishment, they sent us back in time to what they referred to as the “Sucks For You” Age. Jokes on them! They sent us back to the exact year and time as when we entered.

    Or so I thought. PAXEast was over. And Aku was no where to be found. Chiron passed by the forest and the Nymph gave him credit for defeating the Cyclops too. MAN, I HATE THAT JERK. No Forest Nymph and no fight with Cardboard using JAX?

    What’s a Satyr got to do to get some love here?

    I didn’t get a chance to go to PAX East because I am currently feeling the effects of the now fading (hopefully) recession. No one will hire me apparently so due to that fact, I didn’t have the finances to travel to PAX East from LA.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win some swag.

    I could not go to PAX because I was hibernating. I literally slept through the entire month and missed it. I am not the average bear in fact I can barely keep myself awake most days. Being a bear we use bearbucks and while I tried to exchange them for dollars it turned out the exchange rate was extremely high at 25,000 bearbucks per dollar and I only have 1 million bearbucks. I quickly exchanged my bearbucks and ended up with only $40. Shoot I needed dollars and I needed them quick so I thought of the idea of hitching a ride. Great idea on paper, but terrible idea in real life. The people ended up driving away immediately and calling animal control. I spent a week hiding from them. Then I got the genius idea of dressing up like Udyr from League of Legends and try to find people online to carpool with. Yes I found a group that was going to pax and they were all bears as well. So I went with them and they all drove to PAX. Yes, I was finally there!! I looked around and noticed there was nothing related to PAX and asked around. What a mistake I made I went to PAX West 7 months early. So I wasted my time and went to the wrong PAX event. So that is why I want the PAX swag because I went to PAX West instead of the PAX East.

    So drop some swag on me or not. In the end the sleeper awakes.
