I love Giant Bomb and all the content they produce, but I question if it's really worthwhile for so many of the crew to be attending all these expos. I mean, the site basically shuts down without any content every time they do. Sure, we often get the panels and they're sometimes pretty good - but I'd take a UPF over a PAX panel every single time.
I know that the people in the audience must really enjoy seeing the crew live and it seems like a good time for them, but is it really worth it to entertain ~100 people while the remaining 1000s of us get pretty slim pickings as a result?
Is there some other value to PAX that I'm missing? I'm kinda starting to resent PAX itself, because every expo means Giant Bomb shuts down for a few days.
I'm not saying I think GB shouldn't go to these expos at all, just that maybe they shouldn't send everyone on staff. Maybe with GBeast this won't be as much of a problem - I'd watch a UPF with only Vinny!
