Since our first trip to Seattle back in 2008, the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) has been a favorite event for many of us — especially Pete Hines. Be it Boston or Seattle, Pete’s always looked forward to showing off our games, participating in panels, and finding some spare time to play MtG at the show’s tabletop area.
Lucky for Pete, he gets an extra taste of PAX in 2014. At the tail end of our launch week for The Evil Within, Pete will be provide the ‘storytime’ keynote for PAX Australia. It’s sure to be amazing. You can always call on Pete for an entertaining story from his 15+ years with Bethesda — one that started with Morrowind in ’99.
PAX Australia takes place in Melbourne between October 31st and November 2nd. If you can make it, be sure to say hello to Pete.
