Expecting not to slip into "the rain-slick precipice of darkness," PAX '07 plans to be "bigger and badder." The Penny Arcade Expo will take place at the Washington State Trade and Convention Center. Previously held in Bellevue, PAX can thank the ESA canceling E3 for now making them the event of the year for the hardcore -- no fake press credentials required. Oh wait, there's the E for All Expo, but we have no idea how that's going to play out.

"We conservatively expect 30,000 hardcore gamers in Seattle this summer, making us the fastest- growing and largest gamer festival in North America" said Robert Khoo of Penny Arcade. "Exhibitors and attendees keep spreading the word about PAX; it's amazing, but attendance doubles each year."

What we're really looking forward to is just seeing more of Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness game, which we're sure will have some announcement at the convention. You know the guys at IGN and Gamespy can't wait to get their hands on it for some sweet, sweet retribution.
