Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I too got incredibly excited when I saw it. It was nice to wake up to the map this morning. I've already gone over it a few times to see the placement and vendors. I like the idea of Indie Alley too.

    ZOMG 18 days!!11ONEONE11!!!!!

    They always do, you will have to wait until closer to the event though. Perhaps this week.

    Don't hate me if I missed some big obvious legend somewhere, but what is the significance of the red color on the middle booths?

    Thanks for the link, and curse you for making it impossible to think of anything but PAX!!

    Not sure, but they all seem to be computer hardware companies: Nvidia, EVGA, Gigabyte, Corsair, Galaxy, Patriot, Cooler Master, etc.

    I know Battleground Games and Hobbies, based in Abington MA, sells WarmaHordes items. I was wondering if anyone could remember if there was a table last year selling WarmaHordes merch? I can only remember a lot of Magic and Pokemon. I'm looking to get into the tabletop mini realm.

    lillb pretty much has it, although why it's colored differently will make more sense once you see it in person.

    It does look like there are going to be a few (more?) booths where you can buy stuff, other than the usual merch you can find with certain publishers. I guess there will be a few places to spend some dough!

    Also - I'm from Montreal too :)

    EA has lots of subsidiaries. They are likely doing the con as one happy large corp, but individual pieces will be at different booths.

    Yea as someone else mentioned, Bioware will be under one of the EA booths, I'm guessing two others might be for Crysis 2 and Bulletstorm (Cliffy B. said he'll be at PAX East so I figure he'll be promoting Bulletstorm which is coming out this week) Also Dragon Age or Mass Effect may have a separate booth than SWTOR.

    SHIT SHIT SHIT

    There are separate booths for POKEMON AND NINTENDO

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSsssssssss

    I just started making extremely high pitched squeeing noises.

    OK, calming down.

    Calming down.

    NOPE NOT CALMED DOWN

    Shit look at that huge Valve booth! Good to see Firehose games has a booth, played their game last year in the Boston Indie Showcase, it was a lot of fun.

    Speaking of which... AUGH BOSTON INDIE SHOWCASE SO EXCITED

    Last year's expo hall had some rather obvious omissions. I'm happy that this year looks bigger than last year.

    So, it shows the "Show Store" on the expo hall floor. Forgive me if I'm slow but is that the PA store?

    Okay, so if we were to overlay the expo floor onto the full layout floor from the link from It's Not A Tumor, does that mean that BCEC's Exhibit Hall B is the Queue room, and Exhibit Halls A and C are the Merman Theater and Expo Floor? Which is which?

    Pretty sure it would be a booth selling PAX related merch, as well as PA merch (unless PA has a booth).

    No. The Exhibit area is the entire "Exhibit Level" (bottom level) of the BCEC. It fits right over top of the lower floor plan exactly. http://www.advantageboston.com/BCEC/floorplans/BCECExhibitLevel.pdf

    Wow. So if I'm remembering correctly the exhibition hall was pretty much exhibition C & D for the Hynes (plus some hallway spaces). According to the map on their website those two rooms add up to 75,050 square ft - and that wasn't even entirely full last year. This year's is the three halls together plus the registration area for the indie games - the three halls alone add up to 516,000 square ft. This is almost 7x the space from last year!
