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 mooted this thread idea on the IRC channel and they seemed to like it so blame them if you think it's poopy!
There are free play rooms and other newer games at PAX and I thought, surely there are some games people should brush up on prior to coming to the event just to make sure their 'memory muscle' for these games is relatively strong. The list below is my first stab at it. Feel free to add and take away from it:
Guitar Hero 3
Mario Kart Wii
Super Smash Brothers Brawl
Buzz (PS3) <- Applies only to Europeans!
Gears of War
Call of Duty 4
Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2
Soul Caliber 4
I'm sure there is more to add to this list but I guess this will do for now.
