    Went to PAX Prime the last twoyears.  Pretty interested to see how the east coast version goes, even with the limited amount of info we have on what's going on at this point.

    next year. I live on Long Island and am going to college in upstate New York so I'll probably go with a few friends. It was too much work to go this year for me.

    Live only about  25 min from Boston, already bought my 3 day pass along with some friends. Will be taking some video and pictures and posting them. Here's hoping the Giantbomb crew will be there!

    Most likely heading up to Boston from South Jersey. I think I'm going only Saturday and Sunday. Still don't know if it's a lock, though.
     
    Excited if it is, can't wait.

    I was really close to actually committing to going, but it comes down to time and money. Since I live 6 hours away, I'd have to go for the all-out 3 day pass or nothing and I ended up choosing nothing. 
     
    Maybe next year if they do it again.

    Still debating whether or not to go. I only live a few minutes from Boston, so commuting would be no problem. Though I'm really the only one in my group of friends who is into games enough to go to something like this.

    I could go easily but I kind of don't have the slightest interest. I'll go one day to the real thing, not some ripoff offshoot.

    So PAX East is fake?  I don't doubt it will be different, but I'm looking forward to it.  And I'll likely be heading to Seattle for the third time for PAX Prime later this year.

    So Mike and Jerry are putting a lot of time and effort, bringing sponsors and musicians to a "lame ripoff" and selling out tickets for "a lame ripoff"...idiots.
     
    Anyway I go to school in Boston, and PAX East are during the last 3 days of my spring break. I'm definitely going, just waiting for my badge to get here.@Marino said:

    The different types of badges (3-Day, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Media, VIP, etc) are all different colors.  I guess they put the color in text as a counterfeiting measure.  Or maybe for colorblind?  Hell, I don't know.

    I'm waiting for PAX South to happen one day... 
     
    ...so we can all sit around and get wasted on Ziegenbock and Shiner, then shoot guns in the air and yell curse words at the top of our lungs every three seconds. 
     
    I think Gabe and Tycho would appreciate that.  = D

    Actually, all of the passes are colored red but half of them say [BLUE] in text.  There's a theory going around that all people with [RED] passes will receive access to Ekans, Arbok, Oddish, Gloom, Vileplume, Mankey, Primeape, Arcanine, Scyther, and Electabuzz.

    this is the real thing, you guys, it's just on the other coast :( 
      
    maybe not the original, sure, but it's not like PAX East is just a giant Potemkin village for gamers, with cardboard cutouts for booths in the exhibit halls, fake game kiosks, and impostor panelists.

    Hey duders, 
     
    Just wanted to let you know that rufo and I just launched a PAX East edition of our ExpoJunkie mobile app. Check it out at http://pax.expojunkie.com.
     
    If you're not familiar, ExpoJunkie PAX East edition is a free web app that gives iPhone & Android users a complete event schedule & maps for PAX. iPhone & Android 2.0 users even get full offline support, so you don't have to worry about lousy data connections at the show. 
     
    We hope you like it, and maybe we'll see you at PAX East!

    Went to the Jeff Green panel (will never forget his "dump truck full of dead mice with a twenty dollar bill at the bottom" line from Computer Gaming World.
     
    Got up to leave and who is sitting behind me??  BIG JEFFY Gerstmann ! ! !
     
    That's right.
     
    Meant to say thanks for entertaining me for a decade plus but I got starstruck and choked.  
     
    I mean seriously deer in headlights choked.  Choked worse than Sasha Grey.  Welcome to PAX, featuring CHOKE by Chuck Palahniuk.
