Getting Ready For PAX

posted by on August 27 at 17:22 PM

Blissfully ignoring this week’s politics and protests? Charging your DS and PSP batteries? Waxing your “PWNED” Washington State license plate? You must be going the same place I am on Friday.

Every day this weekend, I’ll be at the convention center to cover the hell out of the Penny Arcade Expo. The big announcements, the PAX10 indie games exhibit, the industry panels, the kinda-decent concerts, the Jenga competition, the thousands of penises drawn on Pictochat—no virtual stone will go unturned at America’s largest public gaming expo. There is talk that I may dress up as an underappreciated gaming icon for one of the three days.

To get in the mood for the show, do check out my exhaustive Q&A with Penny Arcade’s hometown creators, Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins, over at It has everything the other outlets didn’t dig up, including dirt on the Penny Arcade Adventures game series, the drama behind PAX07’s Halo 3 reveal, and the “fucking barbs” that fuel the duo’s tension. And if you’re really stoked about the show, knock yourself out with my Live-Slogging from last year’s Expo.
