Pictures from PAX East 2018

Hard as it is to believe, it’s another year and another Penny Arcade Expo; this year, we spoke with a ton of developers, tried out exciting new games and took a few shots- the photographic kind, of course. Speaking as the photographer, I’ll be honest: I didn’t get quite as many pictures as I would’ve preferred, but I do feel as though the quality of my images has risen since last year.

Nintendo’s booth, as always, was tremendously popular. I didn’t dare get in line- I had interviews scheduled!

The Goethe Institut, which is a German cultural institution which brings Germany’s culture to the world, had a presence at PAX East 2018 with the Transatlantic Gaming Summit, which showed off nine German made games including Lost Ember and Lonely Mountains: Downhill.

Publisher Versus Evil showed off The Banner Saga 3 at their booth, which marks the end of the series and is set to be released this year; they had a few cosplayers hanging around the booth for photo-ops during the show.

Aorus had quite the presence at PAX East and was handing out free sweatbands to those who knew the password.

A knight at the Kingdom Come: Deliverance booth- hired cosplayers had quite a presence at this year’s show.

The Doctor.

Pokemon Sun/Moon cosplayers.

A fantastic Horizon Zero Dawn cosplay by Carnivalization.

Life is Strange cosplay, complete with a working camera- she says that it’s tricky to find film for. I’ll be honest, this picture came out a little softer than I’d prefer (I learned my lesson about trying to push my lens too far) but I’m still pretty happy with it.

This fantastic minimalist Cuphead cosplay by Leo!

This EA protest cosplay caught my attention- Electronic Arts, quite recently, has been labeled a villain in the gaming industry; inserting elements into the latest Star Wars game that practically amount to gambling hasn’t done their reputation any favors.

Overwatch cosplay was everywhere this year.
