PAX East is upon us! Even though some Poweteers ended up stranded for various timeframes due to poor weather in Boston, some of us managed to brave through the rain and arrive to the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (relatively) intact!

Upon first entering, it’s clear that despite the radical move from the Hynes Convention center that Pax East was at last year (and originally was slated at for the next few installments), the BCEC is much better at accommodating not only the droves of gamers from all over, but also the scores of vendors, media outlets, and industry guests that are here to show off their wares at the much larger Expo Hall. Whereas last year’s PAX East overshot attendance expectations and seemed cramped, this years looks like it will shape out to fare much better in its roominess.

Enjoy the first photos from the convention under the cut as the beginning of our adventures at PAX! More will be coming through the weekend!

Here’s hoping that rumor about $12 for a hot dog and drink turns out to be untrue.
