Penny Arcade Expo Schedule Announced, Start Planning Now

Where are you going to be on August 30 at 5:30PM? The Walrus Theatre, that's where.

Planning on going to this year's Penny Arcade Expo? Still on the fence about it? Well, either way, you're probably going to want to take a look at the schedule, which has been posted online for all to see.

Looking it over, it seems like there's going to be a ton of stuff to do, including multiple panels devoted to pitching games, something about Strong Bad, and lots of opportunities to line up for stuff.

Hey, wait, that's us!
Oh hey, we'll be there, too! We'll be around for most of the thing, which runs from 8/29 to 8/31. But the mostest specialest time of the whole expo? Saturday, 8/30, 5:30PM. That's when you're going to want to be in the Walrus Theatre to witness the greatest panel discussion that has even been paneled in the history of panels, The Giant Bomb Reunion Tour 2008!

That's right, we're chairing our own panel at the show and dragging out some of our old friends, including Rich Gallup, the 38 Studios employee who is perhaps best known for inventing Fluff. We'll also be joined by Alex Navarro of Harmonix, who will bring his exciting new recipe for Hobo Cobbler!

We'll talk a bit about "the old days" and talk about everything from how we went about building Giant Bomb to what it's like to transition from writing about games to assisting in their creation.

Oh, and charts. Lots of charts. So be ready to take notes. I'm super excited to be going this year. Seems like I've been trying to go to PAX for the past couple of years now only to be thwarted by total nonsense.

One more time, that's 5:30PM on 8/30 in the "Walrus Theatre." If you're at PAX and you miss this, we're totally never going to forgive you.

Please tell me you're going to either broadcast the video of the Giant Bomb conference or post it up on the site afterward for those of us that can't get to the Show!  I really want to see it but can't get to Seattle.

REUNION FREAKING TOUR AWESOMENESS!!

Posted by HTTenrai

Wish I could be there. I'd be thrilled to have a chance to meet you guys, but I'd settle for seeing you in person. ^_^

Posted by xabhie

awesome!!

Posted by Gokuvegita

Please film the Panel and call it a show. Live at Penny Arcade Expo  "The Giant bomb Reunion show". You guys have to film this!!!!

Posted by Cerza

You guys better film this and upload it to the site for those of us who can't make it out there!

Posted by DiGiTaL_SiN

OH MAN! I'm thinking of buying a plane ticket to make it there, Rich Gallup FTW FTW FTW! I'm damn sure it's going to be worth it! Don't know if I'll get a visa soon enough though, I don't think that going to the embassy and asking them for one so I can attend a Giant Bomb Reunion Tour will help.

Posted by SleepyDoughnut

The total mass of this website DEMANDS a video.

Posted by hyperslug

Film it!!!!!!

Posted by Scorched

oh man I wish I was going to this
please please put it on the site

Posted by I_smell

SOMEBODY FILM IT.

Ahaha, Walrus Theatre.

Posted by Hoffer

I'm going to Pax.  I look at that sheet of things to do and have no clue what to do.  It would be nice if I knew what some of that stuff is.  I hope more info is available at the show.

The Giant Bomb reunion is definitely something I hope to attend.  The old Gamespot shows were at their best when Mr Gallup was around.  Once the Giant Bomb dudes left, it officially died.

Posted by Paul

Please, please, please, please podcast, video podcast, record, and live stream your segment. I need to move to the west coast...

Posted by drewm135

This is gonna be an awesome panel. I can't wait to see it. I'll be in line like 2 hours prior

Posted by kingmasters

RECORD IT PLEASE

Posted by McPlated

Damn I just won the Superbowl and I was wondering what I was going to do next.

Posted by ratzombie

I'd also like to beg for a video of the panel, preferably in it's entirety.

Posted by ThomasP

Please make a video. I'll be at work... in Canada... the east coast of Canada. :(

It's great you guys are bringing in Rich and Alex. I'm stoked.
