    Does anyone know if everyone getting a badge at will call needs to be there to pick up badges, or if one person can pick up for the group?

    Only the person who bought them needs to show up.

    Is the Bungie Destiny Experience going to be similar to what they did with Halo a few years back?

    That's a great question. I would like to extend that question to the Showbox in SoDo (Riot Games Party). If any locals can provide feedback regarding "sketchy-ness" of the general vicinity around the time frame of late night and recommended travel method. I (we) would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

    Showbox is just South of the stadiums. It is a more warehousey/industrial type area. It would be about a 15 minute walk from the stadium light rail stop. Light rail northbound (back into downtown) stops around 12:30 am. An Uber would probably be around $10-15 from the convention center area.

    As for the sketchy-ness of various parts of downtown, while I'm a local I don't spend a bunch of time in the city itself. But I work at a fairly large company that has employees that come from all over the country, and their reports on the sketchy-ness of downtown vary greatly based on where they're from. My friends that grew up in DC or Chicago or Detroit laugh at the "sketchy" parts of Seattle saying they'd let their grandma walk through the worst parts alone in the middle of the night. My friends who grew up in the middle of nowhere or upscale suburbs though think the whole downtown is a death trap. So I think it's all a matter of perspective and what you're used to.

    To be more clear, only the purchaser can pick up their own badge(s), they check ID. If you and 3 friends each bought your own badges, you all have to go to Will-Call. If you bought badges for all your friends on your own account, then only you have to go.

    Are we going to have any idea what games are being played in the arena prior to PAX starting?

    Actually, @DScribe, normally they post PAX Arena in advance. I've always been able to plan around it.

    Good news, though. If you open the app, it was very recently updated. Also now that I checked it's updated on the main site's schedule, just filter it by PAX Arena. From what I can see, though, it looks like it might not be just attendee tournaments--can anyone clarify on that?

    Friday:
    Smash 4 Friday Invitational
    HP Omen Arcade Overwatch 3v3 finals

    Saturday:
    HP Omen Arcade The Ringer
    Injustice 2 Fan Tournament
    Overwatch 3v3 Saturday Finals

    Sunday:
    Blade and Soul North American Regionals & MXM Invitational

    Sunday:
    Smash 4 Monday Invitational

    For the folks asking about the PlayStation Experience app: Pax is on it now and check in starts in 22h which means 9pm tomorrow. Kinda weird but just a heads up.

    Has there been an official announcement of when/where the Merch Lite Booth will be this year? Wondering when and where I should start standing in line.

    I have searched the website, FAQ, this thread, and the PA forums to no avail.

    Thanks.

    Edit: Nevermind, I am dumb and was reading the map completely wrong. I figured it out - yay for using your brain!

    Gotta search Twitter too :) Admittedly, it was only posted like 20 minutes ago...

    Does anyone know how late the paramount theatre will be open for destiny stuff? These merch lines are awful.

    Edit: they capped the line so I think they shut down at 6. Just a heads up for people.

    Stand outside next to one of the scalpers and shout “Don’t support evil scalpers, I’ll sell you my badge at cost!”

    I like that the blocked the street between the Paramount and the Annex and had food vendors there.

    The Bungie line is insanely slow. They should've used the same method Pokemon did a few years ago.

    What happened to all of the GAMES at pax? There seemed to be very few actual games being demoed, and it was more about the hardware vendors showing off their latest shiny things. That's all fine and good... but I go primarily to try out new games. I'm very disappointed by this year's experience as a result.
