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!
[PAX Prime 2011] Wrong PAX Thread, Guy. Go Post In The Right PAX Thread.
Yep. While this will be the eighth iteration of PAX Prime, it will officially be the tenth PAX ever held.
What the fuck, have you been living under a rock for the last seven years?
You'll have to tell us about that later.
All you really need to know is that PAX is the best damn convention ever.
What makes it so great?
Take your pick. The community. The expo hall. The panels. The Omegathon. The sheer number of people who come together to make the show work. The number of famous people who are willing to sit around and sign shit all day, while chatting with you about all sorts of asinine bullshit.
I'm still not convinced. Can you show me some of this in a three-minute montage?
Okay, I'm convinced. How do I sign up for this amazing experience?
Hopefully you have made all of the necessary purchases, because the show is sold out. If not, the only place to get badges now is in the Need A Badge Thread in the PAX forum.
I have a lot of questions!
Then post them here! That's what this thread's for. You could also read this thread, which was written by someone much more experienced than I.
Are there going to be any sort of forum meetups during PAX?
Absolutely! PAX Prime tends to play host to a large amount of forum people during its three day run, and there will definitely be things to do with your fellow SE++ people. Details on meetups will probably start showing up about a month away from PAX, so keep an eye on the thread.
When will badges/schedules go out?
Badges get mailed out about two weeks before the show; if yours doesn't arrive, make sure you show up to PAX with the purchase confirmation that you should have printed when you bought your pass. The show schedule will go up on the main PAX site at about roughly the same time.
