Well, the Magic Panel at PAX East has come and gone and while we don’t have the video for it just yet, some lucky people were there and tweeting out the information and some other very good people were nice enough to collect that for us, so if you wanna see some awesome info for Dragon’s Maze or the name and identity of the next year’s block, take the jump.
Earlier this morning Wizards of the Coast officially announced Magic 2014 Duels of the Planeswalkers. And what we just saw above is a teaser trailer for the game set to be previewed at PAX East this very weekend. Along with the Duels 2014 info there will of course be an actual Magic panel the where’s of that is just below.
PAX East is this weekend, it starts pretty soon actually, and Wizards of the Coast has a slew of activities going on with their different games. First off, we’ll take a look at what’s going to be happening with Kaijudo, Rise of the Duel Masters after the jump. A bit later today we’ll likely see some more info come out.
From what started as a quick six-page story over on Penny Arcade has found its way into an ongoing series from Cryptozoic Entertainment. Lookouts #1 gets the Major Spoilers treatment just around the bend.
One of the longest-running and most successful webcomics in Fremont is partnering with one of the best-established and creatively progressive independent comics publishers. In August 2012, Oni Press will become the official publisher of the popular Penny Arcade comic strips, beginning with the release of the 8th volume in the series. Created by the legendary tag team of Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik, Magical Kids in Danger collects every Penny Arcade comic from 2007. The book will feature new commentary by Holkins, a peek into Krahulik’s process for designing the cover, and a new forward by Cliff Bleszinski, design director for Epic Games, the makers of Gears of War.
Penny Arcade’s Child’s Play charity organization is one of the best examples of creators and fans giving to those in need. Wizards of the Coast and Penny Arcade have been rather tight these last couple of years, and with the launch of Magic 2011, Wizards of the Coast has pledged to donate up to $22,000 to the Child’s Play organization – but you’re going to need participate in order for the money to get into the hands of children and hostpitals.
To celebrate the launch of Magic 2011 Wizards of the Coast is hosting M11 Launch Parties around the globe and will determine a donation amount based on attendance at these parties. If 40,000 people attend, Wizards of the Coast will donate $11,000. For each additional 1,000 attendees Wizards of the Coast will donate $1,100 up to $22,000 (50,000 attendees).
By attending your local launch party, you can celebrate the release of an exciting new product AND help make a difference in the lives of children across the country. The event will last the entire weekend globally, starting at 12:00am July 16th in New Zealand and running through 11:59pm July 19th in Hawaii.

Before you shake your head and cry out in disbelief, check out what Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins have to say about the PennY Arcade Reality TV Show.
I have exciting news to share! A while back we talked about a reality show based on life here at Penny Arcade. It was just something we kicked around during a podcast but the idea stuck with us. We kept getting mail from people saying that this was actually something they’d be interested in. Eventually we decided to partner with 2 Player Productions and actually do it. So now we have camera guys here in the office filming us make strips, play game and eat lunch. They also followed us around during PAX and they will be at the CP charity dinner. I’m super proud to announce that the pilot episode is now available. You can watch the two part pilot episode right here on the newly designed PATV page.
So watch the pilot and let us know what you think. Drop us a mail or hit the forum, we’d love to know what you think. Our plan is to release two episodes like this per month. You’ll be able to watch them all right here on the site. I know we’re hard to look at in our human form but if you can stomach it, I think the show is pretty interesting.
To be fair, this really isn’t a television show, as much as it is a web video series, but it is still really cool.Â Just be happy no one wants to see The Major Spoilers Show… just yet.
Your chance to meet, play poker with popular creators and more!
