PAX Prime 2011 - Highlights: Outlaw

Rym and Scott of GeekNights presented "Discover the Forgotten Masters" at PAX Prime 2011. In this lecture, they went over several largely forgotten games/genres, covering the mechanics, histories, and other factors that make them not only masterful, but ripe for being remade.

One of these games was Outlaw for the Atari 2600.

Cutie marks appear to be more than just indicators of a pony's personal prowess, providing preternatural power post-placement. What is their origin, and what does the "Cutie Pox" tell us?

Makoto Shinkai at NYCC 2011

Makoto Shinkai (新海 誠) appeared at the last "New York Anime Festival" (within the New York Comic Con) in 2011 for a screening of his new movie "Children Who Chase Lost Voices" (星を追う子ども), as well as an interview and Q&A.

Here is the directed portion of the interview conducted by NYAF/NYCC. Translation not directed at the audience was cut.

As an interesting side note, we (GeekNights) had not intended to video this event. While press, we assumed that plenty of other people would have their equipment on-hand. Upon arrival, however, we discovered that there was almost no press presence. I couldn't let this wonderful interview exist solely in the form of fan cameras from the audience, so I turned up maximum image stabilization and stood for the full event at the side of the room holding the camera as steady as possible.

The room was noisy, and there was a great deal of background noise from outside the room. I removed as much as possible.

The moral? If you're a journalist at a convention, carry your tripod and shotgun mic even if you expect any video to be redundant. ;^)

What a horrible night to have a curse. If you've ever played Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest, this will bring back unwelcome memories.

Discord has arrived. What does this tell us about the history of Equestria? Is he truly the enemy? Where did Celestia and Luna really come from, and why are they unique?
