Go to PAX because I can't
Leave it to Gabe and Tycho, of Penny Arcade fame to decide to throw a massive gaming exposition just because they wanted to attend one.
If you are able to attend this, and you’re the sort of gaming geek who thinks that it would be fun to, well, be completely immersed in video games for a while, you should support it.
What sort of things are likely to go on at this “exposition”? Well:
Whatever your obsession, chances are good that we will have something to interest you – it only starts with rooms for tabletop gaming, and a robust LAN rocking the newest Unreal Tournament or Battlefield games. Linked consoles for Mario Kart, Crimson Skies or Splinter Cell. Want to hear how to break into the industry? Stop by one of our many industry panels. Want to pitch your game ideas to the pros? This is also something we have.
I, sadly, cannot make it to Washington State, August 28th and 29th. I live in New York, and don’t like forty hour drives. But any of you who are closer than 2,600 miles away should look into going. And if you get a lot of cool stuff while you’re there, feel free to share it with me.
Pre-registration for the event is closed, but you can still buy passes at the door.
