With only a day away from PAX Australia (Penny Arcade Expo) it’s time to get ready with my top 5 things. First let me fill you in, PAX is a festival for gamers to celebrate gaming culture, it connects the world’s leading game publishers with their most avid fans while providing an inclusive community environment.
PAX Australia will combine the exciting program from the international shows with local content and community events. International guests, speakers, musicians and developers will join local game industry representatives to showcase games and community events in Australia.
If you heading to PAX this year hear are my TOP 5 things to bring with you
Bring a bag, medium size if possible. If you are going to buy heaps of things at the show, we all know how it can be a problem when carrying heaps of things. Bring a bag to make life easier for you so you can store them safely in your back pack or satchel.
Bring lots of Sugar, well not lots just enough. You’re going to be walking all day and we all know us gamers don’t do walking. If your running low on energy snap one of those pixie sticks and get on your way. I should probably say drink lots of water too, or supplement water with energy drinks. What ever works for you.
Wear confortable shoes. Comfortable shoes would probably be the most important thing as your going to be on your feet most of the time. If you have crappy shoes like me, then I recommend that you buy a pair of insoles which should give you some added comfort to your existing footwear.
Use lots of deodorant, for the love of god use deodorant! If you’re nodding your head then you know what I mean. The sweet smell of geek is always in the air around these conventions. You cant just smell it but see it. So do everyone a favour and buy a can off deodorant or even a roll on. If your travelling with a clan make sure to share that fresh car smell.
If you have a friend who smells, maybe try using it on your self then asking if he/she wants some.
Last but not least, bring a smile. Everyone is here to have a good time and just enjoy the festival. With out the gamers what would PAX be? Remember to go check out all the local indies and support their games and don’t forget a big thanks to all the international guest and special thanks to Penny Arcade.
Enjoy the festivities and remember the cake is a lie!
