It’s hard to believe, but PAX is less than two weeks away at this
point. We’ve been planning and preparing for this event for so long
now that I can’t remember my life before PAX. What did I do before I
was helping to throw the greatest video game party ever conceived by
man? Probably nothing.
In case you missed it, I wanted to post a list of all the games that will be at PAX. Almost all of these games will be playable and all are newer builds than the ones shown at E3.
The Microsoft booth will be packed with awesome stuff:
Mechassault 2: Lone Wolf
Dungeon Siege 2
In addition to putting on a huge R6:Black Arrow tournament, Ubisoft will also be showing off some of it’s big guns:
Ghost Recon 2
Myst 4: Revelations
Brothers in Arms
Splinter Cell 3: Chaos Theory
I have a feeling the NC Soft booth will be a popular destination seeing as they will have Guildwars for you.
WB/Monolith will be showing off a playable version of their upcoming MMO, The Matrix Online.
That’s all in the Exhibition hall. We’ve got a console room, a LAN room, and a tabletop gaming room that will be equally packed with awesome shit to see and play. On top of all that we have a huge theatre which will host all our panels, movies and our giant geek rock concert.
It’s also important to note that we’ve selected our twenty Omegathon contestants. They have all been contacted and all are ready for the responsibility of the Omegathon. We actually had a few people turn down the opportunity and I respect that. The Omegathon is not for the timid. This will be a battle of epic proportions for a prize worth well over $25,000.
I give you…your OMEGANAUTS!
One last thing. If you want the special $79.00 rate at the Doubletree Hotel in Bellevue you need to make your reservations by this Friday. Pre-registration has closed but there is still time to book a room and just pay at the door for your ticket.
