If you think
spending hours playing a computer game is nerdy, try going to a convention like
PAX East 2012. And if you think that's nerdy, try showing up dressed as
one of the video game characters you play. I couldn't think of a better way to
spend the weekend. A variety
of virtual warriors came to life and competed for the top prize in the League of Legends booth's cosplay contest, including Caitlin, Ezreal, Jax, Malzahar and
Singed. My favorite: "Brolaf" with
Natty Ice helmet and axes. Bromacia!
for upcoming games or projects making first appearances, the League of Legends booth took advantage of its existing user base with community-oriented
events. 5v5 competitions, a 32-person tournament and, of course, the cosplay
fashion show were some of the most popular events at PAX East. Here, the emcees from
Riot Games stream a live competition from at Las Vegas, complete with commentary and
cheers from the crowd. When did PC games become a spectator sport?
