The international gaming convention PAX (short
for Penny Arcade Expo), returns to San Antonio for its third annual event as tens of thousands of Texas gamers (and those from galaxies far away) convene to participate in three full days of video game panels, tournaments, concerts, special guest appearances and an expo featuring gaming companies showing off their latest products. PAX, which also holds conventions in Seattle (PAX Prime and PAX Dev), Boston (PAX East) and Melbourne (PAX Aus), debuted PAX South in San Antonio in 2015 and broke the attendance record for a first-year PAX con. Numbers are anticipated to rise even higher this year as PAX South continues to build on its popularity and the fact that it caters to video game enthusiasts of all sorts — from those who like MMORPGs to vintage Atari games to dice and card games. Autograph sessions this year include epic fantasy writer Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicle), video game reviewer “Angry” Joe Vargas (The Angry Joe Show), YouTube gaming channel personality Stacy Hinojosa (aka StacyPlays) and podcasters Cox n’ Crendor. $35-$75, 10am-midnight Fri-Sat, 10am-7pm Sun, Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, 900 E. Market St., (210) 207-8500, south.paxsite.com. – Kiko Martinez
