Time flies; it seems like only last week when we were covering the hell out of the Game Developers Conference, and this week we'll be all over PAX East. The three-day Penny Arcade Expo is a festival for tabletop, video game, and PC gamers, and will be held on March 26-28 in Boston, MA. Unlike GDC, PAX is all about you guys, the gamers. We're talking three straight days of panel discussions that are actually interesting, off-the-chain nerd-music shows, and an exhibition hall filled with your favorite game companies. Oh, and games. Lots and lots of video games.
Of course, G4 will be covering PAX East 2010 -- bringing you tons of interviews, news, features, game demos and whatnot -- but we're also part of the show. X-Play will be presenting "X-Play LIVE: A Show On Television" for the PAX masses on Sunday at 1 PM. Adam, Morgan, Blair and more G4/G4tv.com celebrities will be on hand to take questions from the audience, reveal world exclusive behind-the-scenes stories, and learn the true meaning of friendship. Plus, I hear there could be a rare special appearance from beloved X-Play favorite-son Ratty Puppet.
That's not all, though. Patrick "Scoop" Klepek will be "opening" PAX East 2010: He's on the first panel of the show, "Journalists vs. Developers: The Ultimate Grudge Match," on Friday afternoon at 2PM. There is sure to be rhetorical fireworks when Scoop mixes it up with Harmonix's John Drake and other prominent game-makers. Don't miss it.
If you're among the many planning to attend, make sure you stop by and say "hi," and if you're not going, stick around G4tv.com's PAX site for all the happenings as they happen.
