Insider's view of PAX West 2018: Cosplay, the Halo museum, and more


Representing Windows Central, games writer Brendan flew out to Seattle last weekend to experience PAX West for the first time. Here’s a recap of his journey from start to finish.

Between developer booths on the show floor, various fan cosplays, and opportunities to meet influential people in the gaming industry, the PAX West 2018 convention in Seattle, Wash., is exciting for gamers. I attended last Saturday, Sunday, and Monday on behalf of Windows Central, and with my homemade Overwatch Reinhardt helmet in tow, I dove into the experience.

After arriving at the convention center around 10 am, my first step was to familiarize myself with the various exhibit halls and ballrooms that contained all of the event’s booths. There were six full floors of space in total, so this task took about an hour. Once I was finished, I began to wander the full show floor to see what PAX West had to offer. I ended up purchasing a copy of The Art of Fallout 4 before heading to a special Overwatch cosplay meetup.
