PAX East 2011 has come and gone

It was a bitter sweet ending yesterday when I said my good byes, got in my car and watched the convention center disappear from view in my rear view mirror. As exhausted as I was by Sunday, I still didn’t want the weekend to end. PAX East, or any gaming convention for that matter, is a place for gamers to be themselves. A place to totally geek out and gush about what you love. You are completely surrounded by your own kind. Gamers.

I was of course excited to try my hand at Gears of War 3 and Homefront. But I was even more excited to get the chance to meet some pretty freakin cool gamers. Now I have faces to go along with the voices I over Xbox LIVE. Speaking of voices, what could be cooler than meeting someone who does a voice on one of the biggest gaming franchises!?

Carlos Ferro made and appearance at this years PAX East. You might recognize his voice from Gears of War as Dom, and Assassin’s Creed as Leonardo Da Vinci.

I was also able to gush to Stephen Toulouse (aka Stepto) about how awesome the Xbox LIVE Policy Enforcement team is.

PAX East 2011 blew the 2010 version out of the water. I can’t wait for what 2012 will bring next year. So I leave you with the following embarrassing video that was a result of peer pressure. Enjoy!

PAX East inches closer


And I’ll be there to play every game I can get my hands on. Two big name games I hear will be on the floor are Homefront and Gears of War 3. But games and swag aren’t they only thing I’m excited for. Panels are a major staple for the Penny Arcade Expo. With so much packed into each of the three days of this conventions of awesomeness it’s tough to decide which ones to sit in on.

For those of you attending, it might be useful to download the PAX Assistant app on Android. Read up on all the panels, pick and choose to create your personal schedule for the weekend.

So who’s going? I know it’s a big convention center but keep an eye out for me. Or tweet me @bowski477

PAX: A Place to get your geek on!


To start off my recap of my amazing weekend at PAX East, I would like to highlight my favorite part. There is nothing better that being surrounded by people who love the same thing you do.

Seeing people dressed up as their favorite video game characters or wearing gaming t-shirts just warmed my heart. Everywhere you looked there was someone playing a DS or a PSP. People were walking around with signs stating that they were willing to trade Pokemon. I was stopped by many a person looking to connect Pokewalkers.

I didn’t have be ashamed when breaking out my DS to play some Pokemon while waiting for the next panel. I wasn’t wary to make conversation with the people next to me. They were just as bored and happy to chat it up about how excited they are for the new games being showcased.

Sadly the weekend did come to an end, and we must all go back to our “real” lives. It was an unforgettable experience that I would do again in a heartbeat.

~~~Stay tuned the rest of this week for more PAX East recap!~~~
