The Penny Arcade guys (gods among men, and funny bastards) might be planning a PAX in Australia, perhaps sometime in 2013. As an aussie I’m stoked with that idea. Now what on earth is PAX and why be excited? Well its a huge geek-game con organised by geek-gamers. By fans, for fans.
And we even get a comic about it. Its a drug designed specifically for my kind of people.
Yes, the comic is ref’ed from their website, and if you find anything at all great about it then PA is likely to entertain every day. It’s worth of geek speak: Teh Awesomer!
(Edit: The target city should be Melbourne people! We spend more time indoors, have better coffee, have better bars, and you’re less likely to be grilled by a petrol head. Its funny to think that Aussie cities might turn on one another to get a PAX expo, but getting in first seemed appropriate)
