    For those wondering what PAX is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penny_Arcade_Expo

    Yes I know it typically falls on the last weekend in August, but there was talk and rumors of it getting bumped up a week or two. But there was a press release PDF found today with the official dates. Me and a couple friends were talking about hitting this one, so it will be my first PAX. Anyone else?

    You know, after going to several years of E3, I have really had my fill of game expos. I just don't enjoy being around large masses of fanboys and the like anymore (I am a fanboy to in many ways, but it's the large masses of them that bother me). There are some perks, but probably not worth the trouble, and I live 10 minutes from it.

    I know you specified "fanboys" as your reason, but even so, I cannot stress enough the unsuitability of even implying a comparison between E3 and PAX.

    I didn't mean they were the same thing, but I did mean they can draw a similar crowd. Either way I know a ton of people have a great time and to them I'm happy they do. I have a lot of friends and cowrokers that have gone to PAX and also volunteered as workers for it, and they also greatly enjoyed it. So, nothing against it, just not something I feel like going to and just had a itchy posting finger that decided to post that.
