Earlier in the week, on the 24th, PAX DEV 2011 kicked off. This is a small, video game developer only affair that leads up to the main event of PAX Prime. Even PAX Prime is only part of the overall embarrassment of events around town. Every night, from Thursday to Sunday, is filled with awesome parties and events after the operating hours of the convention. Don’t believe me? Check out this list of events and parties taking place outside of the convention! Yeah. I know for a fact that this isn’t even a complete list, but it does give you a good perspective on the magnitude of events happening around Seattle this weekend.
So what developers and sponsors will be showcasing their wares during PAX Prime? Just about everybody who is anybody in the video game industry. It would actually be easier to list the game industry people who won’t be attending. For complete information and schedules, I strongly urge you to visit the official PAX Prime website. The expo is made up of everything a gamer could hope for: hands on time with new and upcoming games, panel discussions, toys, swag, console, PC, and tabletop gaming tournaments, exhibitors, after-hours fun, and SO much more. Missing out on PAX this year? Follow the PAX site or social networking feeds if you hope to have a chance at scoring passes for next year (they go devilishly quick). I hope to bring you some good stories from PAX Prime, and maybe I’ll even see you there!
