Checkpoint Gaming hits PAX Aus 2023!

28 Sep 2023

Checkpoint Gaming hits PAX Aus 2023!

The massive gaming convention PAX Australia is back for its 10th year, taking over the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) from Friday, October 6 to Sunday, October 8. Some of this year’s highlights involve Nintendo returning to the expo hall with Super Mario Wonder on show three weeks before its official release, as well as Bethesda helping PAX Aus celebrate its 10th year with painting and other festivities. Of course, always a highlight is the PAX Rising section with this year’s local Indie Showcase winners looking absolutely stunning.

The team from JOY’s Checkpoint Gaming are also heading back to PAX Aus for 2023, heading up a booth in the PAX Together Lounge that you can visit, as well as roaming the Expo Hall all weekend!

Booth: Checkpoint Gaming on JOY

All weekend long at the PAX Together Lounge

The Checkpoint Gaming crew will be available for the full 3-day experience, and can be found on level two of the expo hall, in the PAX Together Lounge. They’ll be there ready to share their experience and knowledge as radio presenters, writers, reviewers, and general games media people. As an LGBTQIA+ organisation, we know about the importance of diversity and inclusivity, and Checkpoint are hoping to be able to bring that positive message to PAX Australia.

Stop by the Checkpoint Gaming booth if you want to say hello, or if you’d like to find out more information about how you can get involved in games writing/reviewing/broadcasting. Perhaps you’d like to join the team!

Giveaway: Checkpoint Gaming PAX Aus Giveaway

The yearly Checkpoint PAX Aus Giveaway is back for another year! To win gaming peripherals, video game codes and merch, as well as a free session for you and your mates to a VR centre, simply stop by the PAX Aus booth. More details are available at the Checkpoint Gaming website.

Checkpoint Gaming PAX Pins

Pin collecting is the unofficial sport of PAX, and Checkpoint are again bringing pins you can buy to support the team. Get more details at the Checkpoint website.


If you want to get in contact with the Checkpoint team ahead of PAX Australia because you’re interested in getting involved, would like to share your game/project with the team, have any questions, or are simply wanting to connect – please feel free to email checkpoint@joy.org.au.
