This is my first time attending a Penny Arcade Expo, but I don’t expect to feel totally out of place. From what I understand, one part of the show has to do with vendor booths, promoting their upcoming games and other goodies. That’ll be like a smaller version of E3, which I attended in June in Los Angeles.
Another part of it will be some speaker panels and roundtable discussions. I don’t know how many of these I’ll be able to see, but I’ll try to attend at least a couple. And then another part of PAX is the LAN party and computer gaming tournament, not unlike what I experienced at Fragapalooza in Edmonton.
The good news is that Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) is in Seattle, which is only a couple hours drive outside of Vancouver. The bad news is that I’ll only be able to stick around for just one day, so it’ll be one crazy whirlwind tour of the event. I’m undecided as to how much coverage I’ll be able to provide to Mobile Magazine and Futurelooks, but we’ll see what I can do.
If nothing else, I’m bound to be uploading a bunch of pictures to my Flickr photostream when I get back.
