The Pax Prime 2015 event has ended but the grandness that it left behind is simply too good to forget. Right from amazing cosplay to some of the best toys, apparels, retro arcade machines and modern day titles, it was a dream come true for geeky nerds.
The Penny Arcade Expo 2015 has grown in size ever since its inception. This year, every show has been exhilarating including the E3 2015 and the Gamescom that took place in Cologne, Germany. Compared to other professional gaming events, the Pax is completely open and anyone from the public could attend it.
There are no inside press conferences or critic only gameplay demos. Ubisoft, EA among everyone else were there. Oculus Rift and HTC Vive tried to compete in the virtual reality space while a huge space was dedicated solely for the arcade machines. Every vintage title including duck hunt, pac man and Nintendo glove was there to enthrall the visitors.
Cosplayers thronged the halls and never said no to anyone asking for a photo. The board named Magic: The Gathering is an indie board game that grabbed the attention of the entire crowd and people were playing it on nearly four floors, sitting in front of one another like pro Chess champions.
Apart from these, there were heaps of toys to purchase right from Shovel Knight to Mega Man and Fallout figures among everything else. There were CDs, props and even the Big Fk*%& gun from Doom, but not for sale obviously. It’s all in the showcase and you can just droll at them while being able to buy some of the toys open for sale.
While not everyone had the chance to enjoy a long weekend at the Pax Prime 2015, these photos will help you feel how good the event went and probably plan a trip to attend it in person in the coming years.
