Pre-PAX Spectacular! Dead Island, Mass Effect 3, Borderlands 2, Assassin's Creed and SKYRIM DEMO OMG!

It's our Pre-PAX Episode Spectacular! While we indulge in mini booze bottles en route to Seattle for the Penny Arcade Expo, we've so kindly decided to share what we're looking forward to! Check out our preview of what you'll get to lay your dirty little eyes on this weekend straight from the show floor.

We're going to PAX 2011 to show off what's coming up in the wonderful world of video games! We've got tons of interviews with developers planned, hands-on game previews and reviews, and of course we'll be conducting the infamous Destructoid Livestreams!

We'll be seeing what's new with Playstation, Mass Effect 3, Borderlands 2, Dead Island, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Lollipop Chainsaw, Batman: Arkham City, Lord of the Rings: War in the North, The Darkness 2... and that's not even it!

We'll see the super secret mystery game that Square Enix is scheduled to announce, and speaking of secrets... for those who are into PC gaming, Razer is planning to reveal something big during their panel, too. If we had to guess, it's something official about the Razer Switchblade portable gaming thingy.

On Saturday, our very own Destructoid degenerates will be hosting panels all day! Don't miss Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? , and How to Run Your Own Gaming Website and Win at Life! The panel will be covering everything from personal economic risk to getting PR companies to work for you, and will be hosted by Destructoid's founder Niero Gonzalez A.K.A. El Jefe, and joined by Craig Skistimas, founder of ScrewAttack, Dan Hsu, co-found of Bitmob and more fancy names.

Sunday comes after Saturday, and you know what Sunday is?! It's Destructoid LIVE from the Unicorn Theater! We'll be debating our nominations for game of the year, making some Destructoid-related announcements, and something to do with an eating contest inspired by The Darkness 2 against the 2K guys? Stay tuned to Destructoid ALL WEEKEND for the sexiest PAX coverage around!
