PAX Prime: Panels of Interest (Saturday)

While the days of many Nintendo-delivered panels do appear to be behind us, the fact is that there are always some panels each day that may be of greater interest and relevance to Nintendo fans. We’ve gone through the program and highlighted several panels for each day that we think might be of specific interest to our readers, based on things like content, panelists, or theme.

Remember that our suggestions for these panels are of course subjective and based on our own perceptions, and we do encourage you to check out the schedule yourself to see if there are other things that interest you—but maybe we’ll mention something that you hadn’t noticed yourself and which otherwise might have missed.

Either way, remember that panels do fill up quickly and it’s wise to keep track of the PAX Lines Twitter account for real-time updates on panels, lines, and other important information.

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
