Here is the exhibition hall floor plan.

I am planning on visiting Nvidia first. I work for GPUReview.com and I want to spend some time with them and ask them some questions. It is in the back of the hall as well so it won't be very busy.

Then I am heading to Sierra/Vivendi in hopes of seeing some stuff on the Black Box games and Left 4 Dead.

Then I will visit whatever of my favorites I can.

Where are you guys gonna go?

    Just about where you are. I plan on hitting Whitewolf booth pretty hard. And the Wizards of the Coast area with a vengeance.

    Damn, this is gonna be a fun weekend.

    Somehow fused to the Technomancer Press booth, for the duration.
    This is why I have underlings, carefully programmed to see each booth for me, and record the experience.

    Ubisoft has three booths... must be for different games...

    Honestly every year I just take enough time to go once around the floor.

    This year is my first PAX, and by the look of the map, I don't think I'm prepared for this.

    I'm not much of a fanboy, I have a general interest in everything, and that could be my undoing. Really, I'm just trying to plot the area where I will inevitably collapse from overload.

    Actually, here's a question: where am I sure to get the most schwag? I.E., which booths are sure be handing out free stuff?

    first, nvidia, to sign up for whatever awesome giveaway they're gonna have this year.
    second, i'll make a lap, seeing what catches my eye.
    third, I'm going to try to find a way to warp space and time, so that Rockstar and Harmonix are right next to eachother, facilitating me (hopefully) going back and forth between GTAIV and Rock Band for long periods.

    I like how the Playstation, Xbox and Nintendo booths make the shape of a giant wang.

    That said, Nvidia, then Dolby, then PAX merch, then Bungie Store.

    First off, I'll dive toward Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony. Probably will have to get the Nintendo visit out of the way first, because I won't be able to afterwards with all the rest of the crowd going after it.
    After that, PAX Merch definitely (will be bringing extra money this time around). I'll stop by both Upper Deck and Wizards for their tabletop stuff.
    Last on the definite list (ie: stuff I'm don't know exactly what they'll have), stop by Mega 64 booth. I hope they bring along the RE4 merchant.

    Speaking of WotC, Ive always thought a cool piece of swag would be a Magic card with Gabe's art on it, probably involving the Cardboard Tube Samurai. Even though I dont play Magic anymore it would still be neat.

    Yeah, but that is why there is the PA CCG from Sabretooth games (Who will be there btw). They have their own set of cards for the Universal Card Game system. All with Gabe's art on it. I plan on buying some while I am there.

    Like I said in IRC I plan to bug the people at THQ for info on the 40k MMO that they probably don't have till they go insane and get corrupted by chaos to get rid of me. Personally I think they will turn to Tzeentch.

    Attention Capcom fans!!

    Via Joystiq. http://www.joystiq.com/2007/06/27/udons-art-of-capcom-300-page-artbook-available-this-summer/

    Udon should have this groovy 300 page Capcom art book at PAX! If you want it this summer, you will have to get it from Udon at a convention like the Anime Expo or PAX. The book will be available at stores in the fall. Udon is located on the bottom left of the floor plan btw.

    I don’t think I will make it much beyond the front door before finding out that my heart has been greatly weakened from years of heavy caffeine in take. At which point I will simply collapse in my own drool. So if you happen to see my try not to kick me as I am sure I’ll feel it once the medics give me a stim pack.

    I'm not completly decided yet, but I do know two booths that will be seeing a lot of me over the weekend, those being:

    1.)nVidia - so I can see how pathetic my 8800GTX will become in the near future
    2.)Harmonix - If I have my way I'll be spending lots of free time cuddling up to a Rock Band drumkit.

    Outside of those two, I have no real plan.

    Seriously though it is kinda cool that there are Educational Exhibitors there to help people get more interested in getting into the industry... just another thing that makes PAX definately NOT an E3 clone.

    I personally am gonna go to the Nintendo booth, first. Then, I am gonna head over to Sony. The Xbox booth will be next. I will then skedaddle to the merch table and then proceed to the Rockstar Games booth. Than, after that, I will go to other assorted places. I am gonna try my best to avoid the America's Army area. Last year they tried to recruit me :/

    Because they have enough budget to buy all of PAX and turn it into a recruitment fair if they wanted.
