Are you an East Coast gamer tired of watching the West Coast gamers having all the fun? Registration has opened for PAX East, the more sensible version of Penny Arcade's celebration of games and gaming.
After several years' worth of trial shows in Seattle, the Penny Arcade team is ready for the main event. PAX East 2010 will take place in Boston from Friday March 26th to Sunday March 28th, and pre-registration is now open. Expect all the tournaments, concerts, and general frivolity of the West Coast original, with some sort of distinctive Eat Coast twist.
"We're bringing the craziness the fans have come to expect from PAX, but with an East Coast twist," said Robert Khoo of Penny Arcade. "Most of all this will be a place where you can be yourself with fellow gamers."
See? There's a twist. Having lived on the East Coast most of my life, I can only imagine he is talking about the lovely dirt we've managed to accumulate on this side of the continent over the years. The kind of Northeastern dirt I miss living in Atlanta, which has been much cleaner ever since it was burned down that one time.
Between now and December 31st, a three day pass for PAX East 2010 will run you only $US45, saving you $US10 off the at the door price. Head over to the show's official website for more details.
