PAX East 2013 Report: Day 0

Hello from Boston!

That’s right, we here at Third Rate Minion are visiting Boston for the next Penny Arcade Expo!  That means in the coming days, you can expect posts from us about the goings-on at the showfloor and panels we attend.  That also means expect a deluge of video content in the coming weeks leading into April and hopefully before May.

There is a lot going on this year.  The Indie Megabooth is massive even compared to last year.  Every one of the main three console producers are going to be there, even with Microsoft and Sony’s next-generation consoles on the horizon.  Publishers are making more announcements and public debuts than ever before, and that means the crowds will be even more intense!  Sure going to be a fun year, even if it gets us exhausted in the process.

Our trip was vastly better than last year’s, which had an additional hour thanks to the massive Easter traffic combined with Hartford rush hour traffic part-way into the trip.  This time, though, with only an occasional back-up here and there, the trip was a solid one, even with the foggy and snowy weather that appeared all over the place.  Our hotel is not the same as last year due to price, but I think it may have been a poor choice to change from the last hotel.  Well, we are going to have to live with it, and so far service has been decent otherwise.

See us tomorrow night when we give you our first day overview from the convention center!  In the meantime, feel free to watch our Ocarina of Time playthrough, which we just finished a few days ago! /shamelessplug
