PAX East 2012 has come and gone, and we had a blast! For those who couldn’t make it out to Boston for the festivities, we’d like to share the experience with you.
We kicked off the east coast’s largest gaming convention by making sure everyone dressed in style – in BioShock Infinite top hats to be precise.
The stylish 1912 fashion accessory was the all the rage with PAX East attendees, and why wouldn’t they be? Not only do they match any outfit, wearing one was the only way to be spotted by our recruiters and to receive an invitation to our photo studio thus getting a chance to have your face in BioShock Infinite. Here are some of those lucky enough to get the coveted invitation:

On Saturday, we held our panel: Making a Monster, where Ken Levine, Shawn Robertson, Nate Wells and Pat Balthrop went through the signature bad guys of BioShock Infinite that we’ve been showcasing in our Heavy Hitters series here on IrrationalGames.com. The house was more than packed – sorry for those who waited in line and didn’t get a seat. Those who lined up early and did, however, received a BioShock Infinite poster. Five lucky fans found hidden red envelopes under their seats, which we exchanged for limited edition 15-year anniversary lithographs signed by Ken Levine. Everyone was a winner though, because at the end of the panel, we celebrated our 15-year anniversary with cupcakes!
Later that evening we had our fan event and cosplay meetup at M.J. O’Connor’s Irish Pub where we got to mingle with some of our most active fans. It was a fun-filled night with food and drink, board games, raffles, gifts bags, and a cosplay competition where two winners walked away with a PlayStation Vita 3G bundle and a Murder of Crows Vigor bottle!
G4TV’s X-Play was also there to capture all the fun for a segment that will be airing on tonight’s episode.

We want to thank everyone who made it out to our event and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! Be sure to visit our Flickr page to check out more photos!
