With the weekend now gone, it’s time to recap what we saw at PAX08.
PAX was, in short, fucking amazing. Ken Levine of BioShock fame lead things off with a tremendous Key Note, audio available at Joystiq on what it was that all brought us to Seattle. As Ken put it, we’re all just a bunch of fucking nerds. PAX is a nerd mecca, with panels, concerts and guests tailored to the nerdish pallette.
Today is the last day of “Early Bird” Registration for PAX08, the Penny Arcade Expo which will take place in Seattle from Aug. 29th – 31st.
What is this PAX you say? According to the official FAQ:
PAX is a three-day game festival for tabletop, videogame, and PC gamers. We call it a festival because in addition to dedicated tournaments and freeplay areas we’ve got nerdcore concerts, panel discussions, the weekend-long Omegathon event, and an exhibitor hall filled with booths displaying the latest from top game publishers and developers. Even with all this amazing content the best part of PAX is hanging out with other people who know their shit when it comes to games.
This year will be my first PAX, as Seattle is a little bit of a haul from Upstate NY. Sounds like an absolutely amazing time, so sign up today and save $10 on your registration. See you there!
