PAX, to me, seems like an unlikely event. Ten years of growth and loyalty to a couple of guys that wrote a web comic that struck to the heart of games and gamers and developed into a large and thriving community of game loving individuals and nerdcore people in general. I remember when they hooked me.
Unprecedented numbers of attendees. So many that they filled the entirety of the huge Convention Center.
Last year (2008) PAX had over 58,000 attendees. This year, ticket sales are capped at 75,000 and there are less than 2,500 tickets left!
I made the expected powerglove references at their booth, but I really wanted to see how this worked. I didn’t really get a feeling about how this would make pro gamers faster over a keyboard, as they claimed it is a different way to play. Is it better? I’d like to hear about your experiences with it.
