Twitch TV is Live-Streaming a Bunch of PAX East Panels this Weekend

Can’t make it out to PAX East this year? Twitch.tv to the rescue. You can catch a bunch of the panels streaming live, starting tomorrow Friday April 6 at 10:30 AM EST.

The live streams are completely free of nerd stench, and it’s not just Twitch getting in on it–2K Games’ channel will be streaming gameplay/interviews, and ditto Capcom and Alienware.

I’d highlight some of the panels for you, but I decided to just paste the schedule below. Is that lazy? I’d counter that it’s industrious and helpful. Much like what Twitch is doing, I’m bringing the show to you. You’re welcome.

The only bummer I see, is no one is streaming BioWare’s Mass Effect 3 panel. Game Front will be attending that one in-person anyway, so stay tuned.

What panels are you looking forward to?
