Hanging out at Pax East in Boston (March 10-12, 2017), The OPN Team was blown away by the talent and creativity of cosplay gamers, so much that we decided to take their pictures left and right. Here are some of the most epic people we've met along the way.

Shane Gamez

Shane is a totally, insanely beautiful and really, really, really ridiculously good-looking gamer who is totally outrageous and, before you ask: Yes! His real last name is “Gamez.” Shane was born to game, learning to read, in fact, from Zelda II; not to mention that Shane's a Nintendo defender hand-picked by Reggie (Yea, they were best buds on a first name basis - no big deal). On top of all that, Gamez is a retired professional EVO player. Games, anime, cartoons, ninjas, snow, TMNT - Shane is about anything cute!! (Shane: And, metal ninjas are the only reason to live. One day I hope to be a member of the PowerPuff Girls!!)

  • It’s-a-me, Mario!

    He captured our hearts and minds since he was 8-bits of pixel jumping across abstract floating platforms, smashing similarly-floating bricks with his gloved hands. Mario (Mario Mario, to be precise) is one of the most iconic figures of anything in the world – not just gaming.

  • eSports

    It’s hard to pinpoint the inception of the esports movement, but much speaks for placing it somewhere around the year 2000. Fueled by fears of the end of the world (brought about by the Y2K bug), public sentiment took a downturn. In Asia, specifically South Korea, a financial crisis had ravaged the economy and conjured a bleak outlook onto the future. Scores of yuppies were fired and turned into NEETs. Instead of browsing the internet and doing nothing at their office jobs, they now passed their time in cyber cafes, playing online multiplayer games.

  • Is Early Access Worth It?

    Early access games give developers and players a unique relationship as a game goes through early-to-final development stages. As a player, you don’t have to be among the select few for the game’s alpha and beta phases; you can play immediately and experience a new perspective as the developers continue to build and improve the game based on your feedback.
