Posted on March 22nd, 2013 by Jhaer

PaxEastWhile we here at the gaming arm of Dragon*Con aren’t always thrilled that PAX Prime runs the same weekend we do most years, PAX East happening in March is perfectly fine! And the fun of PAX East starts today!

But, you aren’t going? Can’t afford to go to Boston and couldn’t get tickets anyway? Well, there may be a solution for you yet…

The guys over at Penny Arcade aren’t going to let you not being able to physically be there stop you from going. They’ve teamed up with twitch.tv to bring the PAX to you. Check out their channel here. And below you’ll see a copy of their scheduled programming.
