Boston is crawling with gamers for the PAX East convention.

FOX's Eammonn Dignam is there and describes what the event is in the latest "FOX Bits":

Your insiders cheat code to gaming, I'm Eammonn Dignam.
One of the biggest gaming conventions on the East Coast is happening right now: PAX East. It's kind of like the ComicCon of the gaming world. Costumed fans will be dressed as game, comic book and movie characters gracing the floor of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
While independent, and triple A Studios will show off their wares as online celebrities like Markiplier will be there to sign autographs.
Some E-Sports competitions taking place including the Pax Arena Rocket League Tournament:

And the Hearthstone Major presented by GEICO Gaming that will take place over the entire weekend with the grand finale on Sunday evening.

First prize gets $4,000. 
Tabletop, card, and board games will also be on display.
That's FOX Bits for FOX News.
