Written by Waldo Kinne, aka WaldoRtk7

PAX Prime starts on Friday August 31st, and Gears Community Online Network (GCON) will be there in full force covering all the Gears of War: Judgment action and all the latest from Epic Games. Also, just like PAX East, we’ll be doing something for those who aren’t able to attend PAX Prime. We’ll giving away some very awesome and rare swag we’ve collected from our travels this year, including a signed Gears of War Board Game by the developers. If that isn’t incentive enough, we’ve also pack a few other choice items inside such as a Chicks Dig The Baird T-shirt, COG Tags, Lambency Stickers, & Gears of War Art Book.

If you are lucky enough to attend PAX Prime, we’ll have some extra swag to give away if you are able to find us out on the show floor. Though be warned, our supplies will be limited! Below are the people to look for at PAX Prime and make sure if you see any of us to say hello and maybe snap a picture! We’ll be retweeting all the images that are sent to the Gearscon Twitter, so if you find some awesome Gears of War action somewhere at the convention make sure to let us know!
