Hand Held Lounge??

Just noticed it under features. In the other PAX, it was a place to play DS/3DS/PSP games while sitting on bean bags. But with unplugged being what it is, what would be there??

    Many tabletop-style games are now in the handheld space! the iPad, in particular, has a lot of traditionally tabletop games available, and my guess is that there will be content at Unplugged regarding these sorts of games.

    Does PAX usually provide wifi or do they rely on the convention hall wifi?

    From my limited visits to the convention hall, I was not impressed with the wifi coverage or ability to access it (I forget if it was a pay gate or not).

    I believe the shows rely on the convention center wifi unless some company were to sponsor something additional.

    You are correct that the vision for PAX Unplugged Handheld is just like Handheld at all other PAXes, just with a focus on ports of tabletop games, as well as some digital card games such as Hearthstone. Unfortunately this may not actually happen at the first year of Unplugged, despite the listing on the website. Given the discussion here, figured I should post, as I don't want to see anyone buy a badge hoping for a Hearthstone tourney or the like.

    Yeah, it doesn't seem right? Proper? Appropriate? For a Hand Held lounge at PAX Unplugged. I've been to a lot of PAX's, and the thing that always strikes me is how a huge crowd of people will all be laying around in the 'Lounge, staring at screens, and the silence! How quiet it is! No one talking to each other. No one interacting beyond a "Is that spot taken?" Kinda defeats the purpose of what Unplugged is all about.

    I guess you've never gone to the HHL when the PAX Pokemon League has their meet ups. Yah, the lounge us usualy quiet but when the Pokemon battles start happening, it becomes a real party.

    @Gundabad sad to hear that. But I guess its to be expected seeing how small unplugged will be on its first year.
