PAX West, Popular Games Convention in Seattle, Moves to Online
PAX West has been a mainstay convention in Seattle for the past several years. It features the latest video games, board games, card games and so much more. Due to the recent pandemic this four-day convention can't happen in person so, instead, they're moving it to an online capacity to anyone can check it out and, best of all, it's free.
I've been attending the PAX West conventions for the past four years though it's been going on much longer than that. It's always featured all the major video game companies like Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony and independent developers also there so show off their game which either just came out or will be released later. Plenty of hands-on demos and lots of game unveils, too.
There's also plenty of support for streaming videos, esports, guest panels and even some shopping all online.
This even is usually four days long with passes hard to come by but with this they're making it 9 days long and, again, for free.
Sure I love to attend as it gives me a chance to network with companies and see my friends but I'm also thinking all the money I'm saving by not buying passes, paying for a hotel and all that food and drinks in Seattle. I'll be back next year, but in 2020 I'll watch from the comfort of my own living room.
