This morning, Penny Arcade formally announced that they have selected a keynote speaker for PAX South, and it will be God Of War director Cory Barlog. This will basically entail him delivering the “Storytime” keynote before the event, taking place January 18th-20th at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. Something Penny Arcade co-founder Jerry Holkins seemed very pleased with.
“Doing a sequel to a beloved game is a unique challenge, and so is rebooting a franchise for a modern audience – Cory Barlog has done both,” said Jerry Holkins, co-founder, Penny Arcade. “We’re overjoyed to have him join us at PAX South. If I get the chance, I’m gonna tell him about this place I know in San Antonio where they make the guacamole with Orange Juice instead of Lime. It sounds crazy, but it works.”
