During the weekend of March 6th - 8th 2015 the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston, MA hosted the PAX East the annual gaming convention in the hub of New England. This show was jammed packed with activites from the time the doors opened at 10:00 am until midnight on both Friday and Saturday and 7:00 pm on Sunday. It featured numerous different areas such as Exhibit Hall filled with publishers and developers, Handheld Lounge were gamers could gather and hang out, PC area that was filled with hundreds of high end PCs, Table top area that featured hundreds of games of various types and skill levels, Panels scheduled throughout the day covering various aspects of gaming, and Concerts.
This was our first time at PAX East we have heard lots of good things about this event and it definitely lived up to expectations. In the Publisher and Developer area we saw demos from Xbox, Infinite Crisis, Capcom, Wargaming.net, Blizzard Entertainment, Greybox, and Alienware, Nintendo, etc. There were numerous vendors such as Thinkgeek, Battleground games, Mimoco, That's Entertainment, etc. We saw gaming demos, Magic the Gathering gaming event, Halo Championship Series, and numerous people playing games in the PC and tabletop areas.
Overall this was a great first experience into the world of gaming. We definitely look forward to covering this event in the future.
