I'm excited to announce I'll be attending PAX East in Boston next week (March 22-24).
In 2004, the folks at Penny Arcade decided they wanted a show exclusively for gaming. Sure, comics, anime, and other nerd hobbies were cool, and those activities all had their own shows… so what about games? From that idea spawned a small 4,500 person event in Bellevue, Washington, focused on the culture and community that is gaming.
Since then, the show hasn’t looked back. Doubling in size each year until venue capacities were reached, in 2010 the show expanded into Boston for PAX East, drawing tens of thousands of attendees in the inaugural year. The shows in Seattle and Boston represent the two largest gaming events in North America!
Veteran readers may remember I had the pleasure of attending PAX Prime in Seattle, Washington. I'm looking forward to attending my second convention to play some awesome games, get free stuff, and take some great pictures for the blog.
Blizzard sent out an email to the press a few weeks ago about something new being at PAX East. Rumors are swirling about the announcement which was purported to be the announcement of their next game.
