The Aftermath: Saying goodbye to PAX

Goodbye PAX - playwisegaming.comThe exodus has occurred. As the throngs of vehement gamers and passionate players trudged their way through the revolving doors of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center on Sunday evening for their final treks to countless busses and trains routed for various airports and highways, it dawned on me. Never in my life have I witnessed such a fervent living body of humans gather in adoration and rally over a common bond.

playCAST PAX special — Episode four: L.A. Noire, games galore and out the door!

PAX East 2011 end - playwisegaming.com

Hear my thoughts on “L.A. Noire” and the rest of the best, and worst, from the final day of PAX east 2011 and overall impressions of my very first PAX experience.

Thanks for bearing with me through these strange amalgamations that I’ve been labeling podcasts. It’s been quite an experience, and hopefully if I go next year, I’ll have a better system worked out.

PAX log — Friday part two

PAX aerial - playwisegaming.comLines, 3DS, Joystiq Podcast, SOCOM 4, Firefall and more

If I learned anything from my first day at PAX, it’s that people like to line up for the panels early…very, very early. Unfortunately, I missed four seperate talks that I was planning on attending because I didn’t get to the line early enough.

Straight from PAX east, here are a few cosplaying images for your viewing pleasure. Check out the gallery for some well-known and some not-so-well-known — but coincidentally no Unown — real life replicas of gaming and anime characters.

PAX log — Friday

PAX East 2011 - playwisegaming.comToday is the first official day of PAX! I awoke from a “refreshing” four hour nap at 7 a.m. I wouldn’t exactly call it sleeping, but it was better than nothing.

There are a reported 70,000 people attending PAX this weekend, and the lines are proof of those numbers — I waited in line for about an hour to get into the opening keynote, which was given by Jane McGonigal.

playCAST PAX special — Episode one: cold, Boston, buildings and anticipation

Ben Wade, PAX East correspondent here. I’m attempting to create an episode of playCAST for each day I attend PAX East. Episode one is above for your listening pleasure.

While no one else from playWISE was able to join me for PAX, I am briefly joined by UF’s Ubisoft campus representative for this episode, and there is a likelihood he may join me for further episodes. I’ll admit it; the podcast is a little unconventional, given it’s recorded in pieces and not quite as professional sounding as our regular episodes due to time constraints, but we hope you guys enjoy it nonetheless.

Click through for a few accompanying pictures, including a weird leaning trash building — how can you resist that?

PAX East Daily Log

pax east - playwisegaming.comPenny Arcade Expo East has arrived, and I’m here to bring you all the action.

I’ll be the only member of playWISE able to attend PAX East over the next few days. Rather than try to get every single little detail from the show onto the site, I’m going to be keeping a running log of the things I encounter firsthand while at the show.

This means it won’t all be breaking news, but it will be your front-row seat to the gaming goodness of PAX. Stay tuned from the 10th to the 14th to see all the action I can gather. Thanks for reading!
