We've just returned from a quick jaunt to the East Coast to hit up PAX East 2014 in Boston. Hosted at the downtown convention center April 11-13, this year's PAX expo saw even more growth and expansion than ever before.
PAX East is the expanded East Coast branch of the Penny Arcade gaming show, complete with an exhibit hall, gaming stations and handheld lounges, concerts and panels. Everything from cutting edge gaming technologies to old-school tabletop roleplaying games are on display and in play. Examples of some of the panels offered include AppJunkies Live: The Worst Apps Ever Made!, Indie Boardgames: Design and Crowdfunding, and the League of Legends YouTuber Panel. Notable concerts this year included Anamanaguchi, MC Frontalot and VGO.
