Win a weekend pass to PAX Prime 2012!!!

Every time I take a trip out to PAX, I register myself for a media pass. I also buy a regular pass, just in case something doesn't go through with the press pass sign-up. When I do get accepted for the press pass, I go ahead and get a refund on the regular. These things aren't cheap, and I could always use the extra scratch while on the road. Well, I did the same pattern for this year's PAX Prime, but my requests for a refund went unanswered after several attempts. Then, the passes you see above arrive in the mail, and I'm left pondering what to do. The PAX people kind of frown on resellers, and I'm with them on that one. Nobody should have to pay hundreds of dollars to go see Nickelback! Actually, if you're paying hundreds of dollars to see Nickelback, just go ahead. The more broke you are the better.

On the reverse, I can totally give them away, so that's what I'm gonna do! What I'm tossing away to you is what you see in the photo above: 3 one-day passes for PAX Prime 2012 in Seattle from August 31st to September 2nd. What is PAX? Why, it's one of the biggest gaming conventions in the world! From console to computer to tabletop, all facets of gaming are present and there for your perusal. Many of the big console and pc companies make PAX their home for the weekend. Sega, Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, Valve, Konami, Capcom, Square, Rockstar, Ubisoft, and many more have made PAX appearances in the past, and it's a safe bet that a few of those companies will have their latest builds for their next big games on hand.

For the record, this does not include entrance into any special parties or events, nor will it include a BYOB (bring your own computer) pass. You will not be in the Omegathon. You're also responsible for getting your butt to Seattle and your own lodging, as plane tickets and hotels are totally on you.

So, what do you have to do to enter? Just send an email to my mailbox,, saying you want in. Also put PAX PASS in the subject line, so I don't accidentally trash it. I'll put all the entries together, and on Friday, August 24th, I'll blindly pick one out of bowl or hat or whatever I choose to hold all the damn things. From there, we'll discuss how to get the passes to you. Overnight it? Meet at the show? Your pleasure.

One more thing: This is open to oversees metalheads as well as domestic.

All right everyone, good luck!
