Organizers of the Penny Arcade Expo have announced that BioShock creator Ken Levine will give the keynote address at this year's Aug. 29-31 expo, and noted a number of musical guests to perform this year, including 'Still Alive' author Jon Coulton and frequent Harmonix collaborator Freezepop. The subject of Levine's keynote wasn't given, but a clearly proud PAX called Levine a 'coveted speaker,' with organizer Robert Khoo adding, "Obviously, Ken is pimp supreme. We're super excited to have him open up the show." PAX also announced the 'Omegathon' a contest in which 20 twenty randomly-selected pre-registrants will compete in tabletop, videogame and computer games each day for a grand prize trip for two to Tokyo Game Show, $5,000 and a home theater system. Finally, PAX gave a lineup for this year's musical guests, which will include the return of MC Frontalot, mc chris, FreezePop, the MiniBosses, Jonathan Coulton, and The OneUps, as well as newcomers The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets and Anamanaguchi.
