The Aftermath: Saying goodbye to PAX

Goodbye PAX - playwisegaming.comThe exodus has occurred.

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!
