Today was the first day of Pax East, and everyone here at S&D had their own assignments. Mine was (arguably) the best; during media hour I got to demo Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

If you’ve ever gone to PAX East before, you know how insane today is going to be. If this is your first time trying to go, consider this your warning.
