PAX East 2012: Day One Video Recap


NVIDIA GeForce is everywhere at this year's PAX East, a massive three-day gaming event being held in Boston, Massachusetts. In the PC gaming area we've got 300, networked, high-end systems for attendees to play the latest games on, and on 50 of those we have a number of upcoming, highly-anticipated titles, powered by the brand new GeForce GTX 680 graphics card.

Which games? Battlefield 3: Close Quarters, the upcoming downloadable expansion, playable for the first time in public; Diablo III, which needs no introduction; Torchlight II, follow-up to a million-selling action role-playing game; and The Secret World, a technically-advanced massively multiplayer role-playing game sporting DirectX 11 effects, tessellation, and TXAA, an anti-aliasing technique exclusive to the GeForce GTX 680.

There's also giveaways, overclocking displays, live demos, partner stands, and the GeForce GTX Photo Hunt, which will give two lucky winners GeForce GTX 680s each and every day.

For a complete overview of Day One check out Kris Rey's excellent recap, with guest appearances from NVIDIA's Clay Causin, and Gearbox Software's Randy Pitchford:
