PAX East is winding down today, but don't fret! Our own Chris Grant is going to be involved in two panels today, talking about this games journalism thing (you know: Joystiq), as well as discussing video game sequels. He will be joined by a cavalcade of the best and brightest our industry has to offer, so that's plenty of incentive to attend. And, remember: five of the folks heading into the second panel will get the completely awesome limited edition Andrew Ryan figure you see above. The treat of the first panel is undoubtedly teh infoz.
So, don't want miss these panels! Here are the details:
- Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Game Journalism...
Manticore Theatre - Sunday, 2:30pm
Chris Grant and a team of esteemed gaming peons will answer any and all questions you have about the art and craft of getting paid to write about games (it's a tough life). Review scores. Swag. Junkets. Bias. The death of magazines. The rise of blogs. It's all fair game. [more info]
- Sequelitis Snake Oil: Quack Medicine for the Video Game Industry
Manticore Theatre - Sunday, 4:00pm
This panel will seek to diagnose the video game industry's purported "sequelitis" by way of discussion from thoughtful panelists, including Irrational Games' Ken Levine; Obsidian's Chris Avellone; Harmonix's Dan Teasdale; Giant Bomb's Jeff Gerstmann; and moderator Chris Grant (from Joystiq!). Mr. Levine is bringing five of the above, super limited edition Andrew Ryan figurines. There are only 200 of these in existence and they're not for sale anywhere – so come early. [more info]
