BOOM Goes the Dynamite as we kick off another year of PAX!

Yesterday was electrifying as Penny Arcade 2011 kicked off – thousands of people descended on the Trion booth from the first minute the doors opened. Eager to see RIFT for the first time after its launched  (or just log in and do their dailies while taking advantage of the Half Birthday Bonuses.) Some of you even showed up and helped us demonstrate RIFT to others – it was epic to watch how awesome our community really is!
