Penny Arcade Expo 2008 has officially wrapped up, but as always it went out with a bang. At the final round of the Omeganauts, (which was played on"Vs. Excitebike" for the Famicom Disk System) a group of gamers rocked out in unison to "Just Between You and Me" by April Wine and "The Final Countdown" by Europe with a shitload of Pip Boy Puppets. Even Gabe said "Wow. That's a lot of Fallout puppets". [Video by Chris Person]
Sorry, I heard Europe and all I could think was trumpets, so...
I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, saying, I am Tycho and Gabe, the Final Countdown," and, "What thou seest, write in a blog, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia." And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden game discs.
And in the midst of the seven game discs, not Gabe or Tycho, but one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a Bird Shirt down to the foot. His head and his hairs were brown like chocolate, as brown as... not snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; and his teeth like unto fine ivory, as if they poached one awesome elephant; and his voice as the sound of many nerds.
And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as banned. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, "Fear not. I am Crecente. Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter. The seven stars are the editors of Kotaku, and the seven game discs which thou sawest are the seven fall hits."
