This page will highlight the neophyte experiences of me, Larry, at my first big time gaming convention, the 2011 Penny Arcade Expo East in Boston, MA. Join the entire Open Forum Radio crew as we show you interviews, swag pictures, hilarious video and picture moments from the once-considered once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The picture above looks past a parking lot and into the Bay. It’s a grand site and could only be seen from our hotel the Doubletree Hotel Boston Bayside. Our hotel was right next to the Bayside Expo Center and a local Tram station. Good times people.
After leaving the hotel that night, we went to catch up with Bob (Full_Tilt101), Jeffrey (jmcwild), JD (JDisthewp) and Chris. We listened to hilarious karaoke and had some drinks.
The next morning started early. An early shuttle (8:00 A.M.) meant we had to get up early. But once you entered PAXEAST, it was on like hot butter on popcorn.
I then commence to play games and meet media industry icons. There are too many pictures to show here but here was my first demo and contact as a media member, Shane Bettenhausen, Director of New Business at Ignition Entertainment and his game El Shaddai (see the Inside Track for more information).
