GWJ PAX East Panel With Jeff Green & Ken Levine!

We'll be putting on our very first GWJ panel at this year's PAX East! On Friday, April 6th from noon to 1PM we'll be joined by Ken Levine and Jeff Green to talk about gaming and where it fits in as we get older. Also from the GWJ podcast we'll have Julian Murdoch, Sean Sands, Cory Banks and Shawn Andrich. Mark it in your calendars!



Gamers With Jobs Presents: Gaming For Grown-ups
Manticore Theatre, Friday 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Who said this was a young man's game? The gaming industry is getting older and so are its players. How have we changed as gamers as we become parents, responsible employees, business owners and *horror* adults? Do we spend more to play less? Do we wax nostalgic for an era that never really existed? Join us as we delve into what gaming means to us in our 30s, 40s and *gasp* 50s as we stumble ever closer to the grim reaper's dark embrace.

Uh, I know this word gets overused a lot, but awesome!

Course, I won't be there, but ...

Oh man, I wish I could attend! Sounds great. "Spend more to play less" could be my motto these days...

I will be there, with bells on

Aw! And Friday is the day that I'm going to missing this year! Sounds like it'll be a great panel

Damn, its too bad this isn't on Saturday. It will be awesome to have Jeff and Ken on the same show! I'll just have to wait for the podcast to come out.

There like Bon Iver.

We need you all, who will be there, to try and rally the troops. They put is in the big-boy room, and it would be great to have it full!

Most excellent. If I cancel my wedding, I should have just enough time off from work to make it...

Something tells me that your co-panelists will be a bit of a draw. Still, it's always better to have goodjers over pubbies.

...and the first PAX East I miss has to be this one. Seriously? Seriously though, congrats guys. The fact that you got your own Panel at PAX is a HUGE deal and a testament to how far both the site and the show has come. I'm proud of you guys.

Hell yes!

Will try and be there!

Well, looks like I'll be camping out in front of the Manticore as soon as the BCEC doors open on Friday... these rooms fill up pretty fast. Eagerly looking forward to it!

Are you going to stream this or make it the weekly call?

Awesome guys.. moving up to the big leagues for sure..

Still time for you to get tix, man - they've still got all the daily passes on sale!

Groovy...wish I was going.

Given the state of the lines for panels last year I plan on going directly to the Manticore as soon as they let us in and staying there.

Hey Momgamer, if the line for the panel previous to this in the Manticore is not able to completely enter that panel do the enforcers clear the line for the next panel or do they just let the remainder from the previous line become the front of the new line? I think I may be overthinking this.

That is great! But please refer to Jeff by his formal name, Old Man Jeff Green

I'll be there!

Jeff is the Jeffiest of Jeffes

Well, fiddlesticks. Friday is the one day I'm not going. Two-day passes for Sat/Sun only.

The props, however, are deserved. Let us bestow them upon you for getting such an awesome panel together.

Will we be able to stand in the aisle and approach microphones with uncomfortable questions? I've never been to a convention but it just seems like the thing to do.

Slumberland: I've never seen a panel without that. Bonus points if you manage to make Julian and Ken both cringe simultaneously.

Fantastic! This is the first time I've ever gone to PAX and it's when GWJ is doing a panel!

We cringe easy.

You're over thinking this. ;). Generally they will have separate lines for each event, space/firemarshall allowing.

Considering that date and time i dont think anything like that going to happen but theres no way to know now. It's all based on traffic flow and demand. It's up to the Enforcer managing that theater and the person handling Line Management in that area. There will be Enforcers at the door of the theater you can ask when you get there.

We'll be there, It will be my son's first PAX pannel

Speaking of which, Ken never did answer that one dude's question last year about how large a Big Daddy's genitalia is...
