PAX Prime 2014 is slowly coming to a close. Cosplay, weird animal fights, and loud noises filled the convention center.

To bring the craziness of PAX to the many people who didn’t have the opportunity to go, we asked people to send us requests of what they wanted to see via Twitter. Below are our responses and our on the ground look at PAX Prime 2014.

Flying Drone Captures Apple’s Spaceship Campus 2 Progress on Video

A new drone video recently surfaced the web, this time with a focus on the Cupertino-based company’s Apple Campus 2. One YouTube user used a GoPro Hero 3+ and recorded a video on Apple’s new “Spaceship” campus that’s still in the works. The video is 8-minutes long and shows the progression of the campus. Previous Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, first announced the second campus back in 2006. Reports have since been circulating the web, talking about how massive of a campus this one will really be.

T-Mobile Announces and Sends out Invites to its September 10th Uncarrier 7.0 Event

The folks over at T-Mobile recently sent out press invites for its upcoming Uncarrier 7.0 event, which the wireless carrier conveniently scheduled to take place the day after Apple’s September 9th media event.

The tagline for the invitations mentions the following:

PAX 2014: Mortal Kombat X’s Gross Fatalities Will Make You Squirm

I don’t consider myself the squeamish type, yet I couldn’t help but wince as I saw fatalities in Mortal Kombat X. The version we play at PAX is setup to showcase deadly finishing moves easily. I admit Fatalities have been my favorite part of prior MK games. They always delivered a funny dose of shock value with a trail of silliness tacked on at the same time. But this time was different. This time was gross.

When IGN editor Daemon Hatfield let the first one rip, I expected to laugh. I didn’t. In fact, for the first time ever I wondered if the developers went too far. I watched one of the new characters named Kotal Khan carve a deep cut across the chest of a bloodied Cassidy Cage’s with a blade. He then rips out her heart and holds up his new trophy before popping the juicy, still-beating muscle. The blood flows into Khan’s grotesque open mouth and drips down his lips. The visual fidelity carefully renders every second of this vicious moment.
