Gallery: Cranked Up and Costumed at PAX 2008
: Photo: Stephen Brashear/Wired.comSEATTLE, Washington -- The Penny Arcade Expo is quickly becoming the Woodstock of videogames, and even meatspace games are gaining ground in the halls of the convention center as rooms fill with Warmachine and Dungeons & Dragons players.
Click through the gallery for the latest scenes from the expo and check out's full Penny Arcade Expo coverage. Also, be sure to peep the events from day one of PAX 2008.
Left: On Saturday, the creators of the Penny Arcade comic strip Mike "Gabe" Krahulik and Jerry "Tycho" Holkins gave thousands of fans a rare treat -- they created Monday's edition of the webcomic live on stage. Artist Krahulik inked and colored the strip while writer Holkins, his job done, entertained the crowd and answered questions.
: Photo: Stephen Brashear/Wired.comAdriana Griffin of Sacramento, California, came to PAX costumed as a Medic from the game Team Fortress 2, a strategic shooter game in which players can be a variety of different characters. While the Engineer and Pyro are her favorites, Griffin chose the medic because other costumes from the game were too hard to create -- but she still wanted have a "big gun."
: Photo: Stephen Brashear/Wired.comRemember the fictitious energy drink "Brawndo," from the movie Idiocracy? (Motto: "It's got what plants crave!") It's now a very real energy drink, and PAX attendees could chug an oversized can for free. Well, until mid-Saturday, anway, when the booth ran out of their over 50 cases of the stuff, leaving only a sad array of empties and green spillage for the final days of PAX.
: Photo: Stephen Brashear/Wired.comBrian Milne, left, of Vancouver, British Columbia, dressed up as Dante from Devil May Cry 4, while girlfriend Melissa Franklin dressed up as Nero from the same game. Franklin, a big fan of the Devil May Cry series, converted Milne to the series. For other gamers who wanted to get their girlfriends involved in their hobby of choice, women in the gaming industry held a (heavily-attended) panel discussion on Sunday discussing that very topic.

: Photo: Stephen Brashear/Wired.comFans of the tabletop miniatures game Warmachine assembled at PAX in some of the most elaborate costumes on the floor. From left, Jarnigan Cook, dressed up as Asphyxious; Tosha Stephens, dressed up as Skarre; and Ashley Cooks, dressed up as Deneghra. The trio, from Eugene, Oregon, where the Cooks own a game store, spent several hours getting into their costumes. Stephens' costume included chain mail.

: Photo: Stephen Brashear/Wired.comJosie Stephens of Vancouver, British Columbia, dressed up as an Advent, a race with psionic and telepathic powers, from the game Sins of a Solar Empire. Stephens is co-owner of Ironclad Games, the company developing the game.
: Photo: Stephen Brashear/Wired.comThe "Omegathon" competition, in which twenty top gamers compete for a trip to Tokyo Game Show, continued on in the final days of PAX. Thomas Chan of Chicago, right, and Jo Ubransky of Litchfield, Ohio, celebrated winning the Rock Band Omegathon round on the main stage.
