Thanks to the excellent media wranglers handling the expo, I was approved for my press pass for the event! This is awesome since I applied wicked late, and just whiskered my way in.

From past experience, I know that gaming cons are usually packed with people elbow to asshole. Adding to that, anything that Penny-Arcade touches multiplies attendance by Higgs-Boson. If you have cool questions for any panel, and you’re NOT ATTENDING PAX EAST submit them here, I’ll probably remember to ask them. Keep in mind, if I wander by the games area I might blow off every panel and play like, DDR or something.

    The Future of PC Gaming Yes, there is one!

    I’d be curious to hear thoughts on how Steam is changing PC gaming–in particular, how much is it opening avenues for smaller game releases? Do developers think that steam will usher in a renaissance of low-budget, low-cost, potentially (key word potentially, lol) high quality games, in the same way that Youtube has opened doors for people making low-cost movies/flash cartoons/etc (though obviously there’s some big differences between Steam and Youtube, but that particular facet of it reminds me a bit of youtube.)
