My hatred of PAX stems from two important facts.
- It happens on the other side of the damn country so I can’t go.
- It happens the same weekend as Dragon*Con and I love going to Dragon*Con too much to skip it.
The new PAX East solves problem number two, and actually lessens problem number one. It’s still far away, but going is more possible. But not this year… you know, since it happened last weekend. Wil Wheaton gave the keynote speech, and not only is he a pretty good speaker he’s also a real gamer. If you have an hour, watch it… if you don’t have an hour to just sit and watch, let it play and listen to it while you do other stuff.
