You should go to Penny Arcade Expo East 2011. I can't stress this enough. It will be really, really good for you to hang out with the rest of your gaming brethren in a positive, fan-driven environment. Trust me, I'm a medical doctor.
The convention goes down in Boston, March 11-13, but you can pre-order PAX East 2011 tickets right now. You should jump on it. They might sell out, and then you'll miss one of the highlights of the 2011 gaming year.
G4 will be there, of course, covering everything game related, from news and announcements, to interesting lifestyle pieces, features and surprises. Check out last year's mini-site for an idea of what we'll be up to.
So let me lay it on the line: Are we going to hang out at Pax? I'll give you a Kit Kat bar if you go. Swear to God.
