Next week we pack up the fam and head back to Seguin/San Antonio for the Penny Arcade Expo 2017, affectionately known as PAX.
We do need these stinkin’ badges.
This typically makes for a fantastic break in the post-holiday doldrums of late January, and I look forward to going every year. This year in particular, as it seems to be growing into a real convention and attracting some bigger name companies.
This year, Nintendo will be there showing off their new Switch.
Twitch (which follows the rhyme scheme nicely), will have their Town Hall there again.
Fantasy Flight Games, the company I do a little proofreading for, will be there.
DX Racer, which may or may not become part of a Christmas present (depending on cost), will have their chairs available to test.
Patrick Rothfuss, one of my favorite authors, will be there doing book signings and playing live D&D.
And finally, most importantly, one Miss Daphne will make her triumphant return on Sunday.
She has, technically, been present for every single PAX South on record. (Granted, the first one was in utero, but I’m counting it.)
Again, I’m really looking forward to it.
