The PAX East show has really started to gain traction with a number of major brand manufacturers and this year's event had, dare we say, stellar support and turn-out from the community.  We've grown pretty fond of its smaller, more manageable venue, with its casual, laid-back atmosphere sans the stuffed shirt marketing pitch that gets a bit old, at the larger shows like CES, after you've heard it day in and day out.  This year's show was held at the new Boston Convention Center with over 500,000 square feet of floor space to get your geek on, virtually any way you want it...

Maybe the relaxed atmosphere sans the 'stuffed shirt' marketing of the bigger shows can be a whole heck of a lot more fun in a smaller venue .aka kids in a candy store

who really care about 'miltary grade yada yada when fragging and blastin away ?
