If you’re into video games, then there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll be attending the Penny Arcade Expo (also known as PAX) in Seattle, Washington this coming weekend. PAX has only been around for a few years, but has quickly grown to be one of the premiere video game events, a must attend for gamers, developers and fans alike.
Of course it wouldn’t really be a complete event without some representation from Revision3′s awesome shows that cover video games, right? We’re pleased to announce that if you’re going to PAX, you will have THREE chances to see the guys from CO-OP and The Totally Rad Show! Here’s the breakdown of Revision3 events at PAX.
CO-OP & Totally Rad Show Meetup
When: Friday, September 4 – 7:00 PM
Where: The Blarney Stone – 1909 3rd Ave – Seattle Washington
PAX is the premiere video game convention and Revision3′s video game shows CO-OP and The Totally Rad Show will be in attendance and want to meet you! All fans of both shows are invited for a night of drinks and hanging out and talking video games!
Panels at PAX
Live Taping of CO-OP at PAX
When: Friday, September 4 – 5:30 PM
Where: Raven Theatre
Learn how to make your own video podcast! Area 5 Media, formed after the breakup of 1UP’s video department, has a new, online show in the vein of The 1UP Show. CO-OP, currently available on iTunes and on the Revision3 website is the spiritual successor to The 1UP Show and features many of the same cast of characters. This panel will be a “live recording” of a special, PAX episode of CO-OP featuring YOU! Area 5 believes that every gamer has a brain and that the domain of game criticism shouldn’t be restricted just to those lucky enough to have it as their job. Two game chats will be shot in the same style as they are featured on CO-OP and will consist of two members of the Area 5 team (or guests) and at least one member from the CO-OP community. There will then be a demonstration of video-capture and editing processes followed by a Q&A session where anyone can ask questions either about the technicalities of creating a video podcast or about Area 5 and CO-OP.
Totally Rad Show Podcast and Q&A
When: Saturday, September 5th – Noon
Where: Wolfman Theatre
The Totally Rad Show: Live – Hosts Alex Albrecht (Diggnation), Dan Trachtenberg, and Jeff Cannata bring their Webby and Podcast Award winning geek culture show back to PAX, this time for a live performance. Join the guys for an explosion of movie, video game, TV, and comic book news and reviews, and see what makes this Revision3 show such an Internet phenomenon.

If you’re going to PAX, we hope you can make it out to see CO-OP and the Totally Rad Show live as well as the meetup!
Have fun and game on!
