    Anyone else planning to go in October? I got my pass.

    haven't been since the first PAX AUS in 2013.

    I've been every year so far this year is no exception :D

    You've only been to the first one? You are in for a treat, the venue change has made PAX significantly better.

    I havent got mine yet, but will soon

    I was a bit disappointed last year, but with Robert leaving, it was bound to cause a bit of a shift

    Hopefully there will be some good stuff this year

    Anyone get the Mystery bag with their ticket ?

    it's not my first PAX let's put it that way as I've been to PAX prime (now PAX west) in 2011.


    I have not. I need to book my hotel and flight.

    EDIT: Anyone up for a preshow meet up?

    I only went for Star Citizen con the first time. I think i ran into a few OCAU on the night. No Star Citizen, no real interest for PAX except for maybe collecting nintendo street passes at the door. Like 100 "street passes" per minute. :lol:

    Keep meaning to go, as the retro scene there gets bigger and bigger every year.

    Can't do it this year as it conflicts with other things though. Maybe 2018.

    I'll plan on grabbing some tees while i am there so let me know closer to the date your shirt size (men's/women's) and i'll try and grab one.

    EDIT: hotel booked.

    I attended last year and I was very impressed with the retro gaming area. I saw an old atari 2600 with the wooden finish which was my first console and was very impressed.

    I will go again this year just for the retro area but the tabletop/card gaming area was also much bigger than I expected. I only hope it keeps growing. :thumbup:

    Most likely will end up getting a 1 day pass for this year.

    Yup, attending again this year, been to every one so far. Always had a blast.

    Did succumb to temptation and got the swag pack, hopefully it's not a dud. I'm guessing it'll be some leftover loot from the US PAX's, which will be pretty cool.
