    I still have not made it to a single party at any PAX. I'd love to finally go to one.

    While I agree that being insensitive is an issue, so is being oversensitive.

    Some are truly amazing.

    I'll miss the Irrational parties. While not flashy, they felt... comfortable. It was truly a place to hang out and chat with other Irrational lovers. :'(

    My favorite was the Elder Scrolls online party (2013). Man, that was awesome. The Rift party (2012) was also amazing. :)

  • rascrushrascrush Registered User regular
    personally i plan on 2 or 3 parties and I will be there the whole time. I just normally find one party and stick to it at least the late night ones I know they have some earlier as well i think bethesda last year was at like 6pm but for the late night ones i would find one and stay there most likely myself inless it sucked

  • pilferkpilferk Master of Unlocking CTRegistered User regular
    Anxiously awaiting to see who will be throwing parties this year....as well as what's going to be on the exhibition floor!

  • ClannMorganClannMorgan Registered User regular
    I'm very excited about the parties...last year was my first year attending any of the parties and I had a blast! Also, I'm planning the Pre-PAX Dinner so keep any eye out for updates in the next week or so.

    This was either the third or the fourth PAX party I've been to, but I can safely say it was the first I actually really enjoyed. I'd missed out on the ESO party the year prior though and heard incredible things about it. I'm really hoping this year there will be some good ones as well. It's starting to seem to me that the bigger the game attached to the party the better it may be!

    You should really go. If you need a friend to go with I'll go with you. It's certainly something you should experience. Find the right party and you'll have an absolute blast.

    ESO was awesome. World of Tanks anniversary party was pretty epic as well. From what I remember, anyway...

  • JayDfromMAJayDfromMA Registered User regular
    World of Tanks was amazing as well as the last Irrational party. Probably the best party I have personally gone to was last years 2K/Gearbox party. It was quiet, open bar, with amazing food. Cant wait for 2015!

    The timing of South is so close to East that I'm not surprised that its taking a while to hear anything...those vendors must be exhausted, just to turn around 40 days later to do it all over again.

    With that said, BRING ON THE PARTIES!!!

    why wouldn't you want parties to happen? I've found that some of my best PAX experiences have been at the parties.
