The Penny Arcade Expo and the formerly exclusive to employees GameStop EXPO both begin this week.

PAX has always been open to the public, and this year is no different. The show begins this Friday, August 31, and ends on Sunday, September 2 in Seattle, Washington. We will be on the show floor writing up stories, previews, and doing all kinds of interviews for your reading pleasure.

This week also marks the beginning of the GameStop EXPO, which used to only be open to GameStop employees. This year, the EXPO will open up to the public on Wednesday, August 29.

If you have the travel budget, you can attend both and catch sighting of two separate groups of Game Informer editors.
