Deus Ex, 3DS on display at PAX East this weekend

PAX East is just a few days away, and the announcements are flying in like flocks of carrier pigeons, only much faster and actually as e-mails. The biggest announcement today comes from Nintendo, which revealed that public 3DS demo stations will be available at its booth.

The demo stations will offer a "firsthand look at upcoming first- and third-party games for the system," including Steel Diver, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Pilotwings Resort, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, LEGO Star Wars III, Dead or Alive Dimensions, Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, and Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. Oh, and Nintendogs + Cats. All that, plus the system's included applications, like Mii Maker and AR Games, should make for a helluva lot of demoing.

Also today, Square Enix and Eidos Montreal revealed that they will be putting on a 20-minute live demo of Deus Ex: Human Revolution in the Main Theater, beginning at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday. The demo will be the only chance to see Deus Ex at the show, and will be followed by a 20-minute developer Q&A session. The first 1,000 attendees in line for the demo will also receive limited edition Deus Ex t-shirts. We're sorry in advance for 1,001.

Eidos Montreal announced this morning that Human Revolution will be released this August.

You can check out the full PAX East schedule on its official site. GR editors Brett Elston, Chris Antista, and myself will be at the show covering it with a thick coat of sticky journalizin', so look for us, and follow @GamesRadar, @brelston, @CAntista, and @tyler_wilde on Twitter so you can see what we're up to in Boston. We want to meet you, and for you to buy us drinks! Or at least recognize us and be unimpressed. We'll settle for whatever!

Aside from the public events, we'll also be meeting up with Rockstar, Valve, Bethesda, and others, so stay tuned this weekend to see whatever we manage to type, film, record, and photograph at the show.

    GR! When you talk to Rockstar, don't just do all the "What about GTA 5?" "Oh, we can't talk about that" "Oh okay" then sit their nicely. I want you to K.O their rep, tie him to a chair in a dark room and tazer his balls till he talks about GTA 5!

    Can't wait to see you all. Also I apologize in advance if I get too fanboy-ish. This demo is also on my schedule, and it would be cool to get a t-shirt, but I'm not lining up any sooner than an hour before, so I'll probably be out of luck.
