Are you attending PAX East 2012? So are we! Here’s how you can find us!

Panels:

  • Irrational Games: Making a Monster panelists include Ken Levine, Nate Wells, Shawn Robertson, Pat Balthrop, and moderated by Julian Murdoch. Saturday, April 7th, 2012 @12-1pm in Manticore Theatre

Events:

Get your face in BioShock Infinite!

This is your chance to get your face into BioShock Infinite! All weekend long at PAX East, we’ll be giving away special BioShock Infinite paper top hats in the main entrance of the Boston Convention Center. If one of our staff members spots you wearing one, you might be approached and given top secret instructions on how you could get your face featured in the game.

Cosplay Meet-up!

On Saturday April 7th, staff from Irrational Games will be on the show floor looking for BioShock and BioShock Infinite – themed cosplayers.  The best-dressed and most creative will receive an invitation to the Irrational Games Fan Party.  To sweeten the pot, G4TV’s X-Play will be there to film the event, so this is your chance to be on TV!

    Very cool!

    I went last year and PAX as a whole was a great experience (including last year’s meet up)… looks like there’s more on the horizon! :D

    Irrational always throws a great party, and that’s before they start giving out free beer and those teeny little hot dogs.

    “If one of our staff members spots you wearing one, you might be approached and given top secret instructions on how you could get your face featured in the game”

    This is seriously making me wonder how they’re gonna render faces on preexisting NPCs. The Forbidden Siren series’ way of making it photorealistic was impressive at the time but for Infinite, it does imply lots more polygons, right? Got my curiosity piqued now…

      I also really wanted to go to PAX East, but I couldn’t afford both getting to the event and going to Boston. I hope to get enough for another one of their events, just to finally meet them.

      It already happened at PAX East. Mostly, it was people who wore the top hats would get picked to have their pictures taken. I kinda wish they did something like this again, may be for E3 or Pax Prime.

        Yes and no. Yes, they picked people during PAX East, but the convention recap says the people picked are “contenders”, so the contest may not be entirely over. I inferred that not everyone chosen would be featured in-game, but I could be wrong. (As for holding another contest with the top hats, I’m pretty sure PAX Prime is too late, and I don’t know if they’ll have that kind of presence at E3. Anything is possible!)
