Gil Goes to PAXEast

Gamers Unite!

Our boy, Gil recently attended the PAX East event in Boston and came back with a renewed passion for all things gaming. PAX is a series of annual gaming conventions held in Seattle, Boston, Melbourne, Philadelphia, and San Antonio. Founded by Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik, authors of the popular webcomic Penny Arcade, each PAX is a show dedicated to supporting and celebrating video and tabletop gaming.

Here's what Gil had to say about his experience:

“The First thing you notice at PAX is the energy of the crowd. Giant arena style TV’s tower over the 100,000 Gamers come to compete for prizes and fame. Despite the fervor of competition in the air, the attitude of the crowd remained kind, family friendly and inclusive. Sony and Microsoft came strong. Both companies announced new games and let attendees try them out first before public release.  E-Sports and streaming was a heavy focus this year, as several non-gaming centric companies like Geico, Castor Oil, and the NBA became official sponsors for various skill-based games. This event is a gaming Mecca.”
