Describing what PAX (Penny Arcade Expo) is to someone who has never been to a PAX can be a bit of a challenge. It’s a convention, sure, but it’s also a whole lot more than that. PAX has become a
bi tri-yearly pilgrimage for gamers and creatives, a utopia where they can go and be surrounded by other people similar to themselves… oh, and also play some video games.
PAX East 2012 is off to a great, and hectic, start. The NA crew began the day by getting our grubby mitts on Borderlands 2, Orcs Must Die 2, and more titles than my brain can currently recall. I won’t lie, I was so exhausted on my way out of the convention center this evening that I got lost and wandered in circles for a good half an hour. I suppose it didn’t help that PAX erected a wall in the middle of the show floor that ended up confusing me a great deal. By the time I made it outside, I was pretty delirious and I have odd memories of being serenaded by Link himself…
After trying out a veritable nerdicopia of upcoming titles, I wiggled my way into three Bioware-flavored panels and live-tweeted the happenings to the best of my ability. For those that don’t feel like sifting through our Twitter feed, I plan on posting detailed versions of these panel reviews as soon as I get some grub. Enjoy this small teaser gallery of images from our adventures, and thanks again for reading.
