    Pax east is a gaming convention where Gamers go to to play/look at upcoming stuff and get free things.



    Pax east 2012 will take place around April 6th to April 8th.



    Every major Game company is usually there. EA, Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo are all there. Along with small store vendors who sell weird stuff and indie gamer companies. There's also a completely seperate section for tabletop games too.

    I'm going this year too, only Saturday though. I didn't see too many good panels on Saturday though. Not sure what I'll be doing, but I'll be around.
    Hey. Hey. Look. Look at me. I'm playing video games.

    Although unlikely I'd love to hear that episode 3 & 4 of Penny Arcade's: On the Rainslick Precipace of Darkness is going back into development! I read the "ending" to the story on the penny arcade website, and it wasn't bad, but definately doesn't hold a candle to the laughs inspired by the PSN games themselves. Again I know it'll be unlikely, in fact highly improbable, but would definately be excited...

    Awesome sig by
    Kid420247! Thank you so much!!!

    Many thanks to RaveNScythe18
    for the awesome platcard!!!

    Borderlands 2 will be at PAX East! (Update) -Destructoid


    [Update: 2K has informed us that Borderlands 2 will have a presence at PAX East, but it's not necessarily going to be playable. 2K Games will be issuing an official statement detailing exactly what of Borderlands 2 fans will be able to check out. Sorry for the confusion.]

    Borderlands 2 will be at the 2K booth next week!

    Additionally, Spec Ops: The Line will be playable and 2K will be holding theater style presentations for XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Civilization V: Gods & Kings at their booth. Plus, Gearbox is hosting a panel discussing their upcoming lineup on April 8 at 4:30PM in the Manticore Theater.

    Can't make it to PAX East and want that Borderlands 2 fix? We have a hands-on preview and interview on Borderlands 2 hitting the site early next week!


    http://www.destructoid.com/harmonix-...t-224718.phtml



    Eagle-eyed fans may have already spotted this, but tucked away in Harmonix's PAX East panel description is confirmation that the Rock Band makers are set to have a brand new game on display at the show next week:

    The panel will include gameplay examples from internal prototypes, honest discussion of our design process successes and failures, insight into how we create and test our games in development, and a synopsis of the design history of a title on public display for the very first time at the Harmonix booth.
    What could the new game be?! My journalism senses are telling me it's a rhythm game of some sort. I'm like, 57% sure of it! We'll know for sure early next week, and PAX goers can find out more at the Harmonix panel starting at 10:30AM on Saturday in the Manticore Theatre.

    http://www.destructoid.com/pax-get-b...h-224675.phtml

    Yes, bacon bracelets. It's not real bacon, but it will make you 100% cooler than everyone else. And constantly hungry. Probably.

    Other than the coolest piece of swag, Uber Entertainment will be showcasing Super MNC at their PAX East booth this year. There will be daily tournaments where winners will get stuff like access to the beta, shirts, beanies and more.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there is going to be a constant stench of bacon coming out of the Uber booth, either.


    http://www.destructoid.com/check-out...t-224619.phtml

    Remember Firefall? That game I've been talking about for what seems like forever? Well, Red5 is going to be at PAX East showing it off for attendees. It will be the first public demo of the invite-only beta. Anyone who shows up to play will get permanent invites to the free-to-play open world FPS. That means you will get early access and have a leg-up when the game launches later this year.

    So if you're in the area of the Boston Convention Center... and you already have tickets to PAX East, you should probably check it out. It was the talk of the con at PAX Prime, and I've had a great time with the game so far.



    http://www.destructoid.com/twisted-p...--222464.phtml


    Wanna go to PAX East but missed the boat on the three-day passes? Now's your chance! Our friends at Twisted Pixel are looking for eight gnarly gamers to chaperon their booth for the duration of the event, and you probably qualify!

    The prerequisites are simple:
    Be 18
    Like their games
    Enjoy talking about their games with other gamers
    Assuming you fit the bill (and can manage your own travel arrangements), you can expect to spend about half of each day at the booth conversing with Twisted Pixel fans and pressing A to 'splode; the rest of the time is yours to spend however you'd like! In addition to the obvious perks (you're going to PAX for free!), you'll also receive:

    An exhibitor badge, which gives you VIP access to the entire show
    A free copy of Twisted Pixel's next game (TBA)
    A free Twisted Pixel "Booth Chaperon" t-shirt
    Beverages and snacks (OMG maybe that means Mtn Dew!)
    That shirt alone makes this worth the minimal effort if you ask me, but I'm a sucker for swag. If this sounds like a gig you might be into, click here for more info! Good luck, future booth babes and bros!

    It was last PAX East where Lollipop Chainsaw debuted to the masses and it's going to be this PAX East where we get just one more last look before the release this June. The game has come a long way since last PAX and I can't wait for the final product.

    That's not all! Warner Bros will also have Mortal Kombat for the PlayStation Vita, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition, The Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons & Dragon Online: Menace of the Underdark expansion pack all at the show.

    WAKFU® – the recently launched MMORPG from Ankama Studios offers attendees the chance to demo 12 available classes. Upon request, the first 1,500 visitors will receive an exclusive PAX East in-game item, as well as two weeks of free premium game time.

    Risen 2: Dark Waters™ – player decisions will help shape their world in the next installment of Deep Silver’s open world RPG. Featuring a swashbuckling pirate theme, a hands-on demo awaits intrepid buccaneers at the Square Enix booth.

    Additionally, Square Enix will host an exclusive evening panel, featuring a gameplay demo and Q&A session with IO Interactive for the much-anticipated fifth entry in the classic HITMAN® franchise, HITMAN: ABSOLUTION™. Panel details include:

    Speaker: Roberto Marchesi (Art Director, IO Interactive)

    It Just made me think what could possibly be different (new / reveals / coverage etc) between the two over that time span.

    Well... At least you actually HAVE a convention... I can just sit and stall here in Denmark.

    If I were going to Pax East, I would probably go to the small booth for Indie games and Small studio games as that hipster I am .

    It's just as bad if you can't go to the popular conventions that's about 30 minutes away from your house because of school.
