Heading to PAX East
This week I’m heading off to PAX East in Boston.
There’s a lot less I’m interested in this year than last year. Last year, XCOM was new and turn-based strategy games were the major topic of conversation in several panels. This year, not so much.
As of right now, I’m hoping to sit in on a few panels:
– Noon: Rooster Teeth
– 4:30: Future of PC Gaming
– Either the 10:30 PA Make-a-Strip panel or the 11:30 Firaxis Games Mega Panel and I’m leaning towards the latter
– 1:00: ExtraCredits
– 10:30 Inside Gearbox Software
– 1:30 Live D&D Game
And that’s about it. I’m hoping to spend a bunch of time on the expo floor checking out booths and just generally relaxing and enjoying the convention overall. I don’t expect to be going back next year since it’s so expensive and the sign-up for passes this year sold out so quickly.
I’m hoping to see some Star Citizen at the convention and I know that Chris Roberts is sitting on the Future of PC Gaming panel. I think Awesomenauts will be there again and I’m hoping to swing by to see Lord of the Rings Online and a few other games.
I’m quite excited for the trip, but I’m concerned I won’t be interested enough in the convention this year. In future years I’m looking to go to local conventions instead as a cost cutting measure.
Anyway, I’ve got a lot of Diablo 3 to get to before the convention. I’m hunting for great loot!
Until next time!
