PAX Online Day 8 Wrap Up

On the eve of the last day of PAX Online, it’s tradition to reflect on what we enjoyed most… but with so much content abound… what could it be? Was it the games? Was it the engaging panels and content? Perhaps the sense of community that only the people that make up PAX could provide?

In the end, let’s agree that it was all of the above, and more.

Today, we celebrated 35 years of The Legend of Zelda and discussed what the future of the franchise looks like.

The Omegathon has come down to two fierce competitors, GTAMP and WOLFOXX will enter the battlefield tomorrow September 20th at 6:45 PM PT. Be sure to tune in a bit earlier to catch a special surprise for PAX Online University Students.

And experience Vampire: The Masquerade: The Court of Cups. Where Jasmine “That Bronze Girl” Bhullar leads four hapless Vampires through an adventure in the twilight hours of Seattle.

One last warning! PAX Merch will no longer be available after September 20th. Stylish apparel and trendy accessories for your gaming needs await you at store.paxsite.com.

Again, citing tradition: Don’t forget to leave cookies out for the PAX Online fairy that will provide you streaming content throughout the night.

John robertson led players through THE DARK ROOM: A sadistic, retrogaming game show that places the audience inside an interactive text-adventure.

And of course, one can’t forget Acquisitions Inc. As the heroes return from the depths of Avernus, they find that Acq Inc has undergone a reorg since they’ve been gone. Missed the epic? Catch it here!
