While everyone was waiting outside the exhibition halls and the convention centre here in Melbourne for the doors to officially open for PAX Australia 2015, I grabbed my recorder and spoke to the crowd to get a sense of what people were excited for.
It’s a wonderful, warm atmosphere here in Melbourne, even if the weather isn’t*. People are happy and vibrant, and you can see it in the queues. People are smiling, happy to be in the company of others who love PAX, gaming and basically all the same things as themselves.
But the doors weren’t quite open yet, so I took the chance to go through some of the queues to talk to a couple of people. You’ll be able to get a sense of the atmosphere here, if you’re not able to attend (or if you’re only coming on the Saturday/Sunday).
There’ll be plenty more coverage over the next three days, so stay tuned for more info from PAX Australia 2015!
* Note: the weather’s actually OK, I’m just doing that Sydneysider thing. Sorry for those offended!
