So The Escapist announced today that they'll be holding their own expo in Durham, North Carolina on September 14th-16th, 2012.
I was originally thinking of going to New York Comic-Con, buuuuut don't think so anymore.
So far not a lot of information is available, except for the obvious string of guests (Yahztee Croshaw, MovieBob, the LoadingReadyRun crew, Gavin (of Miracle of Sound) and Jim Sterling) and that they'll have a Gears of War and Magic tournament.
I am and am not surprised that The Escapist has done this. In conversations with other people over potential East Coast gaming conventions, I've often said the largest collection of game studios aside from Boston in the East was North Carolina. I would have expected Raleigh, though.
I'm gonna be watching the registration page. They are expecting around 5,000 attendees, which sounds small to me. Is it small? How large does PAX usually get?
