After about ten long months of work, it's finally here! It took a ridiculous amount of time and effort to put it all together, and ultimately took longer than expected, but it's kind of our flagship product, so it was well worth it! And we hope you all think so too.
Enjoy a ton of content, both from us and the community, spanning across ten dual-layer discs. Like previous Community DVD projects, you will find full recordings of every band's set during each concert along with a number of full panels, including Wil Wheaton's keynote speech, both Q&A sessions, the Make-A-Strip panel, and more. We've also done a number of themed slideshows spread out amongst the discs.
Papaprinny has re-engineered the audio for each concert as well as a few of the panels, and they sound incredible. Each band performance has two different audio tracks you'll be able to choose from as well.
In the torrent you will find each disc image in .iso format, as well as a folder containing two different types of printable disc labels. That way it's easy for you to download and to choose which discs you want in case you don't want them all, and you can burn your own copies to Dual Layer DVDs and attach the labels.
And now, here is the list of content you will find on each disc.
Disc 1 - Concerts 1
Full concert performances by Anamanaguchi and The Protomen, as well as a photo slide-show for each.
Disc 2 - Concerts 2
Full concert performances by Metroid Metal and MC Frontalot, as well as a photo slide-show for each. Enjoy the bonus footage in the Metroid Metal performance, graciously submitted to us by Metroid Metal themselves!
Disc 3 - Concerts 3
Full concert performances by Paul & Storm and Jonathan Coulton, as well as a photo slide-show for each.
Disc 4 - Concerts 4
Full concert performance by Video Game Orchestra, along with a slide show. Also, the Musical Guests Panel!
Disc 5 - The Atendee Experience
This disc contains a number of themed Ken Burns slide-shows complete with appropriate music tracks, and community submitted videos of various things from around the expo. You'll believe you were actually there!
Wil Wheaton's opening keynote speech and the first Gabe & Tycho Q&A panel. This disc also holds our secret project, the Voigt-Kampff test. Watch as we “interview” many PAX celebrities and other special guests, searching their ranks for fugitive Replicants.
This disc is full of laughter, as it holds the Mega64, Roosterteeth, and Blamimations panels.
On this disc you will find a panel by FoxTrot comic creator Bill Amend as well as two community submitted panels; An Awkward Hour With Rock Band Designers and the XBOX Tweetup. Oh, and there's some more cool Ken Burns slide-shows too.
Disc 9 includes Round 3 of the Omegathon, which of course means two groups of players playing Rock Band on stage in the main theater. There is also the Make A Strip panel, the Gabe & Tycho Media Q&A, and some more slide-shows.
And finally, we end up at disc 10, which holds the Pitch Your Game Idea panel, the second Penny Arcade Q&A, the Closing Ceremony (Final round of the Omegathon, which is awesome by the way), and the last of the slide-shows.

Unofficial PAX Prime 2010 Community DVD
This is something we honestly cannot wait to work on and show off to the community. Now that our East 2010 set is nearly complete, keep your eyes peeled for Prime 2010 trailers and previews, as we cannot wait for you all to get a glimpse of what we captured there. As we also have more of our stuff together and a much better idea of how to do what we do more efficiently, we can hopefully have this set finished in a much earlier time frame than previous projects. We will be sure to keep you all posted on it.
And just so you folks know, we are in need of volunteers!
Our mission with the Unofficial PAX Community DVD is to document as much of PAX as possible. To that end we are currently looking for people to help us make this happen! We are going to be operating with a skeleton crew at PAX East 2011, and we need folks to help us get the stuff we won't otherwise be able to get! Help us preserve this moment in time by volunteering to help us film stuff. If you would like to film with us as part of the Community DVD Crew, message either papaprinny or Coldbrew here on the PAX forum and we will all figure out how we can best cover the event and preserve it on film, all while making sure you have plenty of time to enjoy PAX.
We are additionally in need of post-production volunteers! We have made no secret of the fact that we all went to PAX 2010 and covered that event as well, and now that we are releasing the PAX East 2010 set, work will begin on the PAX Prime 2010 Community DVD. We need everything from concert video editors to sound engineers to a Youtube producer and a photography producer. (Yes, photography is a big part of the Community DVD!) If you'd like to help us get this project done fast and to have your name stapled on the final product, message either papaprinny or Coldbrew and we can tell you how you can help make the PAX Prime 2010 Community DVD happen.
