For detailed descriptions of each event, as well as the rest of the weekend’s schedule, be sure to check out the PAX East site using the link posted above. Oh and for those of you who did a double take up there at the 2:30 schedule, that “Strip Search” panel is about the reality TV show. (Hopefully that doesn’t disappoint you too much, but I’m not here to judge.)

Looks like we’re in for the usual PAX experience; chock full of awesome panels, great music, an exciting display out on the show floor, and all the tournaments you can handle. As of this past weekend, passes are officially sold out for each and every night, so hopefully anyone interested in attending already got their registration taken care of. I regrettably had to miss out on PAX East last year, but our time apart has only strengthened my desire to get back to my favorite convention for gamers, by gamers. If you want to hang out or play a few tabletop games, feel free to send me a message on Twitter. If you want to tell me how much you hate my feature editorials, I guess that’s fine too. Or you could just tell me how much you love me. Either way, I’ll be there having a good time and you’re welcome to chill alongside me.

Who here plans on attending PAX East this year? Let us know which days and what events you plan on being around for in the comments below.
