Pax-East Pre-Show | TalkTyria, Guild Mag, and Friends!

Well as you guys know, Pax-East is coming in less than a week. The fabulous team over at ArenaNet will be attending, and the east coast rejoiced!

I’ll be heading up to my sister city to the north for the weekend to enjoy the festivities and try to get in on the new Guild Wars demo. I’ll be representing GuildMag &  TalkTyria. I’m extremely excited to see what they’ll have to offer this time around and hope to get as many images and as much info to you guys as possible.

Here’s a quick low-down on the whos, what’s, where, when, and why, gods, why’s of the convention!

Who:
From ArenaNet, Regina, Martin, Colin, and a whole bunch more will be attending in full force, offering tons of great and fun content for fans to enjoy. If you’re going to the meet and greet, don’t forget to say hi! The devs and CMs are all wonderful to talk to.

On top of ANet, a lot of familiar faces from around the community will be making appearances throughout the weekend! Myself and Malchior will be heading up representing GuildMag, and our podcast co-host Sabrewolf will also be hanging out Friday and Saturday for Vidthru.com (how excited are we to finally meet face to face for the first time? Ecstatic!) Fellow TalkTyria writer  TheLazyGeek & Peter  from over at GuildWars2Live will be joining us, and the awesome Ravious from KillTenRats will be around as well. I hope Boston is ready for this much awesome in one small area!
