Pax East inBoston starts today and the lobby of the Sheraton already had Magic Duels, D&D games in the restaurants, and people talking games.
Ah a game convention where the dudes wear black and the chicks wear cosplay...YaY!
PAX East looks good so far. We picked up our badges and got a chance to walk around. Ran into the Fallen Earth Team at the hotel and found out that someone knitted a scarf for Paul Barnett to go with his badge. The games industry is just that type of place. I was online for coffee talking to some Korean reps from a game company, when the German guys behind us started asking questions as well, they were from a hardware company in Germany...all this happens right here in the most American of cities, Boston. The global feel of the game market is very inspiring and fun to see people from all over the world excited about games.
Last night we took in the Made in Boston Party over at MIT. Turbine and 38 Studios was on hand talking to students and developers alike. It all makes for a great atmosphere.
We'll be checking in each day with pictures and news to give you guys a great view of the show. Post any questions you have and we'll do our best to answer them.
And don't worry our ace photographer Joe is here to take all your booth babe and cosplay chick photos :)
Check back tonight or tomorrow morning.
