A few new announcements regarding our big thing: If you are planning to pre-register, you might want to do it before the 10th - that’s when we’ll be selecting the contestants for the Omegathon. The Omega Collection continues to plump up, it’s easily at around 20k at this point. Over in the Exhibition Hall and the tabletop room, expect to see Privateer Press, of Warmachine/Iron Kingdoms fame. Many readers wrote in asking if Warmachine specifically would have a presence, and now you know. Interest in the Tabletop Arts has grown continuously since PAX was announced, so we’ve expanded that room yet again. Brady Games will be there as well, free guides in tow. Expect to see nVidia in the exhibition hall, I’ll try to get a list of what they’ll be showing there. Microsoft is showing a whole bunch of stuff at PAX this year, and all of it is 100% playable. Mechassault 2 will be there, Forza (in all of its four monitor glory), and Halo 2 will be there and playable Sunday only. This isn’t even all of the stuff they’re bringing.
