PAX Prime 2013: Saturday Main Theater Panel Schedule And Assorted Highlights

By now, PAX Prime is in full swing, and all of you lucky ducks out in Seattle are probably having a blast.

That doesn’t mean we can’t help you out from here, so we’ve gone through the schedule of panels and events for today to highlight what’s going on in the main theater and the other various theaters and tourneys around the show. You can’t see it all at an event like this, but you can at least try to get to as much of your favorite stuff as possible.

If you’re new to PAX, we snuck a quick overview of the show into our rundown of yesterday’s schedule.

So without further ado, onto the good stuff!

PAX Prime 2013: Day 2 (Saturday 8/31) Main Theater Schedule

10:30 am – Penny Arcade Make-a-Strip! – The Penny Arcade guys put the exclamation point in there, not us. Yet there’s every reason to be excited since attendees can hang with Gabe and Tycho and actually lend a hand in making the strip that will be up on Monday.

1 pm – The Next Dragon Age: An Introduction to the Inquisition – No, that doesn’t mean there’s going to be an inquisition into why “Dragon Age II” wasn’t the sequel many gamers were hoping it would be. Rather, this is a panel with Mark Darrah and Mike Laidlaw of BioWare introducing where the series is going next.

3 pm – Acquisitions Incorporated – Sounds all business-y, no? This is a live session of the D&D game/podcast that features the Penny Arcade folks, Scott Kurtz of “PvP” fame, and fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss and always sounds like a good time.

8:30 pm – Saturday Night Concerts – New night, new acts on PAX Prime’s Saturday stage. Hideo, The Doubleclicks and MC Frontalot are tonight’s entertainment.
