    Might be a great a place to be at, without a doubt, but it heavily depends on what they actually unveil (especially Capcom, since they tend to unveil shit and disappoint everyone).

    I've already read amazing stories about him and a few other main ones on the Enforcer forums. I'm looking forward to it...once they tell me where I'll be working for the weekend. >_<

    AbleGamers Accessibility Arcade Returns to PAX East | GamePolitics


    The AbleGamers Foundation will return to the Penny Arcade Expo East (PAX-E) in Boston, Massachusetts March 22-24. The organization dedicated to making gaming more accessible to those gamers with disabilities is being sponsored by Paradox Interactive and other game industry companies this year at PAX East. This year will also see the return of the AbleGamers Accessibility Arcade, which offers an exhibit dedicated to "the latest and greatest assistive technology for gamers with disabilities to play today’s hottest games with just a little help."

    The AbleGamers Accessibility Arcade will be featured on the main level of PAX-E directly in front of the showroom floor. Everyone attending the event is welcome to stop by for hands-on demonstrations and AbleGamers staff will be on hand all three days to answer questions about accessibility, gamers with disabilities and assistive technology.

    "Our booth at the Penny Arcade has become one of our biggest annual events," said Mark Barlet, President and Founder of the AbleGamers Foundation. "We pull out all the stops for it. We bring over a dozen team members from around the country including, experts in game accessibility, developers with disabilities themselves who understand issues gamers with disabilities face, and booth specialists trained to give the people who visit our booth the best experience we can offer."

    "We don’t want to just educate,” said Steve Spohn, Community Outreach Chair of the AbleGamers Foundation. “We want to entertain and show people the joy video games can bring. Sure, there’s an educational element to it, but everyone who attends PAX-E wants to have fun and that’s exactly what we’re going to give them. And hopefully everyone who stops by will gain a greater appreciation for how people with disabilities play video games along the way.”

    ...I've also read about some of those instances within the Enforcers. If an Enforcer gets kicked out for whatever reason, it's made common knowledge amongst the whole team. Yay bad apples.

    From the sound of things, you can be an Enforcer as long as you're legally able to work in the United States. As for what we do, we essentially keep the convention from catching on fire and/or blowing up, as well as keep both attendees and guests/vendors happy.

    EVE Online expansion to be revealed at PAX this month | PCGamesN

    EVE Online's next expansion is to be revealed later this month at the Penny Arcade Expo. Following on from the Retribution update released in December, which saw an overhaul to the game's bounty hunter system, this will be the first update to use CCP's new method of expanding the game, dropping feature driven updates in favour of across the board change.

    More below.

    Having just broken 500,000 subscribers worldwide and having only launched DUST 514's open beta two months ago there are a lot of eyes on CCP to see how they will change their deeply complex MMO. Past expansions have riled up their avid fanbase, such as the Incarna update that added purchasable cosmetic items; it was one of the few times in EVE's history when subscriber numbers dropped.

    It may be that the new expansion will relax some of the trade restrictions currently in place between EVE and DUST.

    Speaking to me in January, CCP's resident Economist, Dr Eyjolfur Gudmundsson, laid out the plan for joining the two game's economies. At first they “are going to monitor the flow of money between the two universes in such a way that to begin with there will be none. Then we will open up flow from one end to the other - from Eve to Dust - and we will have a taxation on that one. In the beginning it will be heavily taxed while we are understanding the flows and the demand for moving money from Eve to Dust.” Then, "The future vision is that there will be not only ISK movements between the worlds but also resource and material movements", but that is not due for some time yet.

    PAX is taking place between the 22 - 24 March and CCP will be allowing convention-goers to go hands-on with DUST 514 and demo the link between the two universes. The expansion is due to be released this summer, likely around June-time.

    http://massively.joystiq.com/2013/03...e-at-pax-east/


    Perfect World has announced its plans for PAX East, and Neverwinter will be prominently featured on 18 demo stations. The event marks the public's first chance to lay hands on the Great Weapon Fighter class, and long-time Forgotten Realms author R.A. Salvatore will also be dropping by the Neverwinter booth for a book signing on March 22nd and 23rd.

    PAX East runs from March 22nd through March 24th in Boston, Massachusetts. Neverwinter may be found at booth 624 on the show floor.

    In other news, Perfect World has released a new teaser video focused on the title's mounts. You can view it after the cut.

    http://www.polygon.com/2013/3/1/4043...ndie-megabooth


    The 2D/3D puzzle platformer Contrast will be playable at PAX East as part of the Indie Megabooth, Compulsion Games announced today.

    "We chose to be part of the PAX East Indie Megabooth in order to give back to the amazing community that has helped support the game during our successful Greenlight campaign on Steam," said Guillaume Provost, creative director and founder of Compulsion Games. "We began development on Contrast four years ago and are excited to finally unveil it to the public.

    "Contrast will transport players into a vaudevillian world of shadows and mysteries, where story elements are discovered through the manipulation of light, and it introduces new gameplay paradigms for interacting and navigating the world."

    The independent-developed title is set in a surreal 1920s dreamscape filled with cabaret singers, circus performers and illusionists. Players take on the role of Dawn who is tasked with helping a mysterious girl called Didi.

    Gameplay gives players the freedom to move in and out of shadows and to manipulate them using light sources. A new character design for Dawn and a look at the ability to shift between a 3D landscape and a 2D "shadowscape" is showcased in the updated teaser trailer below.







    and on possible stuff being at pax, star trek is revealing something before pax starts, one day before to be exact.

    http://massively.joystiq.com/2013/03...s-a-countdown/


    Something very interesting will either happen or be revealed for Star Trek Online on March 21st. We know that not because of our new psychic intern, Francesca, but because the teaser site for STO's May content update now has an exciting-slash-ominous timer counting down to that date.

    The teaser picture also has been updated to change from the Romulan symbol to a murky picture of warbirds among the stars when you mouse over it. The image caption reads, "Our shadow will dim the stars."

    Will this be the reveal of a playable Romulan faction, as many have suggested? Or will it be the rise of a prominent adversary in the form of new mission content? Or could it be something as of yet unforseen? We'll just have to wait with the rest of you until all is revealed on the 21st.

    Saints Row 4 rumored for August, Deep Silver talks “huge” plans for PAX East | VG247

    Deep Silver has something “huge” planned for PAX East, and the buzzing on Twitter points to possible news on Saints Row 4, which the firm’s parent company picked up during the THQ auction.

    According to a tweet from the firm’s Aubrey Norris: “Dear Media: You’re going to want to be at PAX East this year. If not, you’re going to be missing out on something HUGE. Just FYI!”

    Lots of poking and prodding from her followers yielded nothing; however, a tweet from Chris Stockman, who was design director on Saints Row 1 and is currently lead designer at Human Head, tweeted he’s heard “around the campfire” that the game is slated for current-gen consoles in August.

    While it’s entirely possible that some news regarding Volition could be announced during the event, GTA 5 is set for a September which would put SR4 on retail shelves a month before Rockstar’s release. This would either be an odd move on Koch’s part or a very ballsy one.

    We’ll all just have to wait and find out what Deep Silver has in store for the world March 22-24 when PAX East invades Boston.

    Essentially. For me, I've been staffing conventions since 2008...it's gotten to the point that I get more out of going to a convention as staff than I do as an attendee. My mind's pretty messed up, if I do say so myself. >_<

    Square Enix Showing Unannounced Wii U Title At PAX East? | My Nintendo News


    Square Enix is apparently revealing an unannounced Wii U game at PAX East which takes place from March 22nd to March 24th. The publisher mentioned that they were showing off an unannounced Wii U game in an invite they sent out to press publications. Australian developer Straight Right has been rumoured to be working on a Square Enix port of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, so perhaps it is that.
