So, PAX is done and dusted for another year. But how did you find it?
Something that I’ve found interesting is that there seemed to be more space between booths on the expo hall this year. I wasn’t there on the Friday – typically the quieter of the three days – but it wasn’t as nightmarish trying to get around on the Saturday and Sunday as I remember in past years.
Hell, I still remember trying to get past the block of League observers watching the OPL finals in that first year.
From the gaming side, there was an impressive bunch of indies mixed within a bunch of games that have toured PAX for a couple of years now. We’ll have a larger writeup from the team later this week, as well as something else we’d like to do, but something that really took me by surprise was Grapity.
I hadn’t had any experience of the game until, well, walking on stage for a panel. But damn if Grapity isn’t a good party game.
Beyond that, the facilities handled PAX as well as they usually do: the food and drink was your typical convention prices, Boatbuilders and General Assembly were packed as always, and there were smiles on faces everywhere you looked.
How did you find PAX this year?
