A happy (and eventful) new year to you!
Wow, is it already 2017? This can’t be! A lot of things will happen this year, besides locking myself away for a few months (or years) to build my own Mech game for VR now that VR is finally out and moving into the (official) 2nd year!

PAX South, Jan 27 – Jan 29, 2017 in San Antonio, TX
In 2004, the folks at Penny Arcade decided they wanted a show exclusively for gaming. Sure, comics, anime, and other nerd hobbies were cool, and those activities all had their own shows… so what about games? From that idea spawned a small 4,500 person event in Bellevue, Washington, focused on the culture and community that is gaming.
Zealous X TBA?
