Let’s finish an old draft covering last year’s Penny Arcade Expo, partially to compare against a recent smaller videogame convention, along with preparation for an event this weekend also hosted at Seattle’s Washington State Convention Center.

I became distracted shortly after writing my concert and lecture reviews of videogame expo PAX in September. While eventually writing a preview for 2064: Read Only Memories, which may drop later on this month, the rest still lingers in my “get around to it” backlog. With animation expo Sakura-Con coming up in April, if I conclude any thoughts and templates now, I can be more timely with these features. Why not start with the highlight?
