Well, if you were planning on attending PAX this year, hope you already bought your pass. Three day badges sold out in a couple of hours. Looks like the Saturday badges are sold out as well. I'm sure the Friday and Sunday badges aren't far behind them.
I don't remember if you need a PAX badge to attend the Turbine party as it is held off-site (Gameworks the past few years). You will almost certainly need an invitation from Turbine. Hopefully Turbine will have an official announcement about the party soon.
wow i could cry i'm so sad i dont get my 3 day pass. i've gotten one every year for the last 5! and i've been checking their site every day. i guesse im gona have to get a phone i can have twitter on just to get my tickets next year. at least i got friday/sunday so i guesse i'll spend some time with the fam on sat then go back sat night for the random stuff that goes on
It's at Gameworks. You'll need to show an ID and a ticket to get in. Last year they handed out a few VIP passes at their booth (the VIP passes let you skip the main line and wait in a slightly shorter line). Not sure if they're doing something similar this year.
