It's safe to say I was very
excited for PAX East this year. It's also safe to say that Joe and
Colin are very patient with me.
I've said it for three years in a row now...but PAX East is the best gosh darn
show of the year. They display the words "Welcome Home" on the
enormous video screen outside the convention hall every year and I
can't think of a more fitting slogan for a show. PAX is home. It's
a collection of almost all of my favorite things packed under one
roof and for me it is the very definition of happiness. But enough
PAX was rad.
This was our second year
officially "covering" the show and if I'm honest I think we put a
great episode together for you. While last year's jam was split up
into a two-parter, this year we were able to stay on track (for the
most part) and lay down a tasty 2 hour review featuring discussions
with developers, reviews on games both hot and unknown, and details
of our experiences in hunting down Penny Arcade employees in order
to exchange goods...and pins.
Rumor has it next year's show moves us back to
early March again which means one thing: LET THE COUNTDOWN BEGIN.
Brb. I have to go message Joe and Colin.
