I'm pretty sure it's gonna be MAG for me. I do hope to one day be able to go to both.

Yeah, Hale and I are probably going to skip PAX this year. We both thought the convention itself was kinda boring last year. Hanging out at norg's place was a blast, but since that's not going to happen this year, it's probably not worth forking over all that money. We'd rather take a vacation somewhere with nicer weather. :P

You can bet we'll be at M8 though.

Since my family want to go back to Seattle to visit relatives, I'll be attending PAX again this year. And there's no way anything could stop me from going to MAG again.

PAX at norg's place was one of the best times of my life. Being in one place for most of the night every night made it easier to just hang out and get to know everyone without the pressures of trying to hang out with everyone at once, like at MAGfest. PAX, the event itself, on the other hand was pretty dull.

MAGfest is the best thing ever. The only downside to MAG is when you realize that it's over before you know it and you never quite got to do everything you wanted to do while you were there, but without too much regret.

PAX is kind of like a mini E3 that's getting larger each year. All the major video game companies set up booths and show their upcoming games. It's cool for a few hours, but once you've seen everything, there's not really much else to do except wait for the evening concerts. I guess you could hang out at the panels all day. I dunno.

MAGfest is much smaller and less formal, with more of an emphasis on music as well as gaming. There's a buttload of video game music concerts (way more than PAX), and a room called Jamspace where anyone can just pick up an instrument and jam with other musicians. But mostly it's just a big party at the hotel. You can wander around from your room to the convention whenever you want, or hang out in other people's rooms for smaller get togethers. The convention is open all night, so you can stay up for as long as you want and crash whenever you want. It's mostly about hanging out with online friends and having a good time.

Well regardless I'll be at MagFest this year, but we'll have to see about PAX.

If enough people are going I'd like to go to pax so that at mag it won't be like a total wtf who dis guy, at least some people would have already met. Who else confirmed they was doin pax (if anyone besides hobo).

I can't really speak to Pong's description of PAX, as I've not been there (yet), but her description of MAG is spot on.

The difference between PAX and MAG

By kingnothing997




At PAX, I will not be there to give, nor to receive hugs.
At MAG, I will be there to give and/or receive hugs.

Hey, what do you know? That happens to cover my thoughts as well! :D

I really hope Tommy Tallarico is going to be at M8. He was SO COOL at M7, and I'm quite surprised, really. I mean, before I ever met him, I thought he was a money-guzzling tool, but after having met him at M7 I think he's one of the coolest dudes in the video game industry. Anyone who thinks he complains too much obviously didn't go to his panel to hear his rants: he very well knows what he's talking about.

In other words, M7 made me a Tallarico fanboy and I hope he can make it back. Grant Kirkhope too! :)

Grant talked to Tommy. I stared at his boobs in the mean time. Tommy's, not Grant's.
