Alright, you got me. The 2010 Penny Arcade Expo doesn't start until tomorrow, but that doesn't mean that there was nothing to do in downtown Seattle on Thursday. Here's a quick recap of what I managed to see today while picking up some extra PAX passes.
After providing the proper papers, the will call booth provided me with passes for my friends
Guild Wars 2 crew members lurked outside, handing out paper tokens
You could trade the tokens at the Seattle Shirt Company for a GW2 shirt
Three different designs were available
A closer look at the Guild Wars 2 artwork decorating the walls
If you don't have a badge by now, you might as well go home
On the upper levels, PAX Enforcers and exhibitors were busy setting everything up
The popular Halo: Reach statues seen at PAX East and E3 have made the trip to PAX Prime
PAX crew members lugging Sumo bean bags down to the handheld lounges
It's rare to see the Sumo bags not being used by tired gamers
Sneaking a glance at the exhibit hall
Unfortunately, that's as close as I managed to get
One of several Magic: The Gathering challenges that can be completed to access a special party
Hey, the DeLorean is going to be at PAX!
I managed to canvass a few guests in Dragon Quest IX while exploring
A crowd of fans waiting for the PlayStation gathering at Top Pot Doughnuts
The view as soon as you stepped through the doors
Autographed Kevin Butler posters were handed out for a limited time
The second floor was packed
Complimentary doughnuts and Coca-Cola bottles served as refreshments
Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep was present, but unfortunately I did not try it
The party advertised free vouchers for the God of War: Ghost of Sparta demo, but I never got one
Two men on the lower level stripped off their shirts to prove their might
A fierce arm wrestling match broke out, and the dude on the left was victorious
Some of the prizes awarded to guests during the Rock Band 3 party at Jillian's Billiards Club
Based on a quick round with the bass, Rock Band 3 is more of the same
That didn't stop a swarm of people from lining up to give the new game a try
Not a bad haul for an unofficial day at PAX
That concludes my Thursday pre-PAX adventure. In a few hours, I'll return to the convention center as PAX officially begins! Stay tuned for a much
lengthier update documenting my Friday antics!
Awesome. Once again, thank you for letting me live vicariously through your travels.
Great. I truly enjoy these posts of yours. Keep the pictures coming.
Hey DTJAAAAM. I now I'm late getting to this, but I was at PAX too. You captured me in some photos. I'm the guy in the evil TRON hoodie at the IGN thing. You got me waiting in line and on the second floor. I need to make a blog post with all my stuff.
