Pax Photo Gallery A-Hoy!

This is the first time I've been to any version of PAX, so I'm not all that sure what to expect. For what I've heard, though, the convention is a lot more fun than the "industry-only" style conventions like E3 that I'm used to. The focus is on the gamers themselves as opposed to the companies that make games, so I'm honestly looking forward to hanging out with like-minded nerds, maybe meeting some new pals, and generally having a rip-roaring weekend of gaming.

While I'm looking forward to trying out the "bigger" games on my schedule (particularly Portal 2's co-op!), I love the focus on smaller, indie style games at PAX. I'm hoping a discover a hidden gem or two among the on-display titles at the show. When I do, I'll let you guys know about it, I promise.

PAX 2010: What I'm Looking Forward To

PAX is my favorite video game related show all year, hands down. Why? Because it's really for the gamers, and not the press, the industry, the men who live and breathe by the smell of money. This is a show made for the people with calluses on their fingers, and D20s in their pockets. If you're a gamer, no matter what your speed, PAX Prime 2010 has something for you.

We're covering a wide range of things at the show, ranging from the inFamous 2 panel, the Bungie panel, and D&D Live to things like multiple game demos, interviews, and plenty of photos and video from the show floor. But what am I really looking forward to? Well, you'll have to read on to find out. Plus, if you're planning on being at PAX, come hang out with us!

Indie Games Monaco And SpyParty: Together, Playable At PAX

If you're going to Pax this year, I'm going to invite you to something cool. Something really cool. Indie games SpyParty and Monaco are sharing a booth, and you are invited to come down and play both games until another PAX gamer kicks you off them. They're at booth 3004, at Pax Prime, in  Seattle, WA on September 3rd, 4th, and 5th, 2010.

Why the shared booth? Well, these two games share a common theme of espionage. Both games are multiplayer as well, but the most important similarity between them is that each was made by a solitary individual (Andy Schatz made Monaco and Chris Hecker made SpyParty) toiling away for countless hours to create a game that is unlike any other. The essence of indie-gaming!

Anyway, come check it out, or get some more details, right here!

Castle Crashers PSN

August 31 will be a good day for Playstation owners: That's the day ace downloadable title Castle Crashers will be available on the PlayStation Network.  The king of beat-em-ups will run you $15, but I promise you it's worth all that and more. It's a seriously great little game.

The Behemoth has been hard at work on this for over a year, and will be on hand at Pax to show off Castle Crashers in a real arcade cabinet...

Here's how the The Behemoth blog describes the company's PAX presence...

We're going to be at PAX (Penny-Arcade Expo) on September 3-5th at Booth #3102 so come on by and check out both Castle Crashers and BattleBlock Theater. We are building a 4-player Castle Crashers arcade cabinet which you can use at the show! Look out X-Men/Predator/Simpsons we’re coming after your distant memories!!!!

I'll be at Pax... wanna hang out and play Castle Crashers?

PAX 2009 may have finished up over the long weekend, but that won't stop us from sending off Penny Arcade's expo with asizable photo roundup. Aside from our customary general gallery (complete with Team Fortress 2 crew below), check out the:
