PAX Prime: Panels of Interest (Saturday)

While there are no Nintendo-specific panels happening at PAX Prime this year, we’ve gone through the program and highlighted several panels each day that we think might be of interest to our readers. This may be due to content, the list of panelists, or just general thematic ties.

Please remember that these suggestions are entirely subjective, and we encourage you to flip through the program on your own to find things that interest you—but perhaps our suggestions will cause something to jump out at you that you wouldn’t otherwise have noticed!

  • Sphinx Theatre: Level Up! Turning Your Geeky Hobbies into Geeky Careers (10:00am-11:00am)
    • “Let us show you how you can turn your geeky hobbies into a career! There are lots of people who boldly (or something accidentally) strode out and made their part-time passion into a full-time career. Hear stories and tips from our panelists of photographers, seamstresses, video producers, and more about how to change your passion to your livelihood.”


  • Wombat Theatre: Building Your EPIC Cosplay Costume from A to Z (11:30am-12:30pm)
