The true successor to E3 (sorry, e for all, but you aren't), PAX 2009 will be Spet. 4-6 (Labor Day weekend...one of the worst times to travel :cry:). I've decided to bite the bullet and travel to Seattle for this year's event . Anyone else heading that way?

For those interested, preregistration is already open ($50 for all 3 days), but no hotel info just yet.

I will be there again this year (attended in 2007 as well). It was a ton of fun last time.

In general I notice a very lackluster and/or negative reception to people on CAG when PAX get mentioned so I wouldn't expect you will get a lot of responses sharing your enthusiasm in this thread (if any responses at all) :/

Here is the official forum if you're looking for more enthused people :)

I went last year and am prolly going to go again this year with my friends. I had such a great time, the giantbomb panel was worth it.

I am probably going to both Pax's the West Coast and East Coast one.

I'm really considering taking the plunge and just going to my first PAX. Anyone taking the West Coast Train Trip?

I will hopefully be going, but it will all depend on my work situation. Mass overtime incoming! Luckily, I live in Seattle, so I could go for one day if nothing else.

I'm guessing you're entering a fighting tourney?

Nope. I'd like to if I have time though. More of a business trip for me.

i'm still on for going and my buddies are still going. I can't wait for PAX. Last year I had such a good time. My buddies and I are going to be in the area longer this time so we can go out to the local bars. It's also going to help that this time we get a hotel a block away from the convention. If anyone wants to meet up at pax and chill or even after the shows over and go out drinking let me know. I'm always down for meeting new peeps.

Someone should set up a time/place one of the nights where CAG's can meet up. I'm sure there will be a lot of us there.

I am 100% confirmed to go now. I'll be there from the 3rd - 7th.

I'll be at the Namco Bandai Games booth the whole time pretty much. Look for me in the TEKKEN 6 area! I'll be with the other SD TEKKEN guys wearing the SDT/TEKKEN shirts !

I'm about 80% sure I'll be there. Will know by Saturday, since that's the deadline my buddy and I set for the trip.

We will be staying for a week, mostly because we haven't been to Seattle before.

HEAVYD hit me up with your contact info!! :)

I'm helping to run console tournament, and I've been an enforcer every year since PAX started, so feel free to ask me any questions you may have and I'll try to answer them.

Also, sign up for Soul Calibur IV on Friday!

What systems are the fighting game tournaments (SC IV and SF IV specifically) on?

Is it bring your own stick or will sticks be at the show?

For the open console play, I'm assuming TV's are provided, but it would be bring your own console, right?

The fighting games will be on the Xbox 360. Standard 360 wired controllers will be provided, but I highly advise that you bring your own stick, since sticks and convertors will not be provided.

For open console play, TVs are provided but you must reserve a spot with the staff at the console freeplay area. If you bring your own console, that is fine, but please check it in with the staff first at the checkout desk.


There will also be contests and challenges in the console freeplay rooms, but I don't know the details yet. All I know is that it'll involve prizes. :bouncy:

I'll be there. I only live like 15 miles away. I can't wait!
There are no small kills, only small ninjas-

Its not about the size of the dog in the fight, its about finding out how many heads the dog has and then choppin' em off real quickly and also killing the demonic spirit that is possessing that hell hound -

The baby with two heads can kill alot more than the baby with one -
