As always, one of my favorite things about PAX East is all the cosplay. And as always, I’ve got too many pictures for just one gallery, so I’ve split it into two. There were some really impressive costumes this year — in particular, I loved the Booker DeWitt who glued actual feathers to his hand for the Murder of Crows vigor. (He was cute, too!)

But my favorite cosplay in this particular gallery simply has to be the trio of Tingles. They actually had confetti that they threw up in the air that was completely awesome, but unfortunately, hard to capture in a still picture. (If you look for it, though, it’s there!)

Make the jump for the humongous gallery! Who were your favorites in this group? (And check back tomorrow for more!)

This week, I kick things off with a little movie review by sharing some brief thoughts on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 before jumping into the gaming of the week. Which naturally includes some more Disney Magical World before moving on to Infamous 2 and the purchasing of a two-fer RPG when I’ve already got more games than I have time to play them. Hey — I can’t resist a bargain!

Dear Diary,

After the non-stop excitement of last week, I was hoping for a breather this time around, and luckily I mostly got one. I say mostly because there was a holiday, but it turned out to be a non-starter.

We did get a new resident, though, and she seems like she might be cool. Read on for the full scoop!

This year, I made an appointment to visit the Bethesda booth at PAX East to check out The Evil Within, the new survival horror game from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami. But while waiting for that scheduled showing, I had a little time to kill, so I decided to play a little Wolfenstein: The New Order…

Proudmoore: The Gay WoW Server

Proudmoore is the unofficial LGBT-friendly server in World of Warcraft. Some openly gay players chose the server as their home and began to form gay guilds. The first guild to tout being “LGBT friendly” was asked to stop promoting this message by Game Masters, because it was against the terms and conditions. GMs stated that,

“Topics related to sensitive real-world subjects—such as religious, sexual or political preference, for example—have had a tendency to result in communication between players that often breaks down into harassment.”

This quickly escalated to a legal battle, and Blizzard has since changed their stance on recruiting. Now LGBT players have their own unofficial server where they explore the world Azeroth in peace.  It’s been about eight years since the controversy took place. I wanted to check in on Proudmoore to see how things were going, and so I made a fresh new character on the server to trade chat with some LGBT guild members.
