Didn't get any tweets but the schedule for West 2017 appears to be live on the website: http://west.paxsite.com/schedule

Once again friends, sound off! What panels are you most excited to attend this year?

After taking a further look, I'm pretty excited to try and attend the Nintendo panel, Annual Pax Crowd Play and the 10th Anniversary of Witcher panel!

    Honestly with each year, the panels interest me less and less. I used to have panels I wanted to attend all day and I had to choose, play games or go to panels and I never got to go to every panel I wanted.

    Now I struggle to even find more then 6 panels I want to see over the entire weekend.

    All I see that I want are the IGN panels, The secret Nintendo Panel, The Life is Strange Panel, What's Good Games, and PAX Rumble.

    And Maybe the gameshow night stuff, but I'll miss that if Square does another Grimecraft concert at the Hard Rock Friday as a Life is Strange Before the Storm Launch Party. Fingers crossed that happens since the last two partys for Deus Ex and Lara Croft Go were amazing.

    Or maybe they are doing something bigger Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary wise, or both. Who knows.

    Edit: And of course the IGN and Giant Bomb Panels overlap.

    For me, I usually have to really dive into the panels and descriptions before anything pops out at me. For instance, I didn't realize Koji Igarashi was gonna be at the Crowdfunding for Indies panel, and I'm genuinely interested in what he has to say.

    But yeah, some panels are hit or miss but thank goodness PAX offers other things to do :D

    Cartoon Network game panel (I really want to meet Ian Jones-Quartey!)
    Nintendo Panel
    PAX Rumble V (the highlight of my PAX every year!)
    Greg Miller's cancer panel
    Hemming and Health: 2 of my PAX friends are on this panel! (I might not be able to make this one ;_;)
    And maybe the IGN panel

    I'm excited for the Extra Credits panel. I've been wanting to meet their crew for a long time now!

    I just saw there is a Nintendo panel, which I've never seen on previous Paxes. Gonna line up super early for that one. Also any panel that goes over story telling in games.

    Regarding stuff I'm not interested: I get it that streaming is big deal, but there is a bit too many of these panels this year. And call me old fashioned, but I prefer to watch my Let's plays/game videos done by people who are more level headed and let the game shine through, not w/ this "Twitch personalities" injecting shenanigans as they play and mostly using the game as prop.

    I'm also waiting on the map to be up to see if they have the Pokemon Center again :P I think I will splurge for the large Snorlax this year.

    It's not live yet. They said they are adding the finishing touches so it should be updated later today.

    For me, the ios app shows the images of the 2017 app, but when you open it there is not update yet. So maybe they have only pushed the android update so far. If anyone wants to post the maps it would be appreciated.
    *edit: ios just updated for me. Got them maps!

    Really intrigued by the Nintendo panel, as I don't remember them ever doing one before. I don't normally attend panels at all (can't recall ever going to one in the 8 years I've been paxing) so it will be interesting to see what all the fuss is about.

    They've done panels before at other conventions (specifically WonderCon). That one was more focused on the development for Hyrule Warriors Legends.

    OMG, what if it's a Nintendo Direct, live at PAX!!

    Secret in the sense that there's no description for it in Guidebook or the Pax site, but it's happening Sat. at 10 a.m. in the Hydra Theater.

    I suspect they had to pull it to update it with some changes given recent events involving one of participants.

  • DustyStarrDustyStarr Registered User regular
    Hydra is in the grand Hyat right?

    Either way, so far the only two panels I know I am going to is the Nintendo one (gotta get there SO EARLY) and the TRG one. Will probably go to a game dev panel or two.

    I take it the Guidebook is still being worked on because the Exhibitors tab lists Playstation five times and The Behemoth three times or am I wrong?

    Exhibitors are listed multiple times because they have multiple booths. If you click on wax. One it is a different booth number.

    @SkeleVader

    Okay, I was comparing this years and last years Guidebook and didnt notice any multiple of the same vendor. However, why is it after Yacht Club theres more exhibitors which should be above Y?

    It looks like the ones after Yacht Club are specifically vendors.

    Same! I am so excited for that, but I am going to have to get up so early. X3 What time do you (and everyone else here) intend to start lining up? I am thinking 7AM, but I wonder if that will be too early or not early enough...

  • Croatian SensationCroatian Sensation Registered User regular
    I know they don't let you start lining up for panels until 2 hours before but I might get there earlier to make sure I have a spot lol. That one will be capped fast!

    Oh I didn't know that, thanks. But yeah I definitely intend to be in the area before 8 so I can try to get a spot... that is like the panel I am MOST excited for so I really want to get in. X3 And I bet it will be limited too... you know, since Nintendo loves limited availability. X3 J/K

    No Watch match? I am sad, but it means Jerry gets to keep it for a while longer.

    And I anxiously await the announcement of the fourth player for Acq Inc., I hope my feeling is correct.

  • jonathanmichaelsjonathanmichaels Archduke of Levity Registered User regular
    Judging from what has been said on Twitter and the schedule, looks like Appjunkies and Giant Bomb panels will not be streamed on Twitch?

  • whypick1whypick1 PAX [E] Info Booth Manager ~2' from an LCDRegistered User regular
    Main and Wyvern are the streaming theaters. Those two panels take place in Sasquatch.

    They are the first panel of that day, unless the hotel shoo us out, we can probably line up early. Planning for being there ~8am, hope that's early enough. People staying on the Hyatt can just sleep on the line :P
