Indie Mega Booth is arguably easier to get lost in than all of PAX itself. During PAX East, I found myself wandering the many games for several hours, easily losing track of time to the myriad of interesting projects. PAX West looks to be even better, as 84 playable games have been announced to be at the Mega Booth, Mini Booth, and Tabletop areas.
A while back, I covered the announcement of the new PAX Unplugged event, an expo that focuses primarily on table-top gaming. With the sudden rise of board games and card games at these sort of conventions, having a whole PAX dedicated to those types of gamers was an obvious response. Now as the event looms ever closer, we now know just which companies will be showing off their games and products. ...[Read More]

During the Xbox Conference, lots of sweet games were shown off. One of the many games included was a game titled The Darwin Project. What is this game you ask? That’s a really good question for those of you that don’t know of the game.
Penny Arcade, host to one of the internet’s largest gaming communities, and ReedPOP, the world’s leading producer of pop culture events, today announced a global expansion of PAX gaming events under a new Powered by PAX brand.
I can’t help but feel captivated and deeply moved by the game Hob. During my hands-on experience at PAX East, I had the privilege of sitting down with members from the Runic Games team and trying things out myself. Needless to say, I was impressed and fell in love.
PAX East 2017 provided a lot of great chances to see upcoming games from many companies on the show floor. At one of my many appointments, I got to sit down and play the PC game Conarium from Iceberg Interactive. Conarium is a chilling Lovecraft-inspired game, which follows a story involving four scientists and their endeavor to challenge what we normally consider to be the ‘absolute’ limits of na...[Read More]
Boston, an often overwhelming city, offers one of the best opportunities to see the newest games and ideas in the industry. Six of our writers descended into the city from all over the country and we want to take the time to show some of the most noteworthy games we had the pleasure to check out. Now, it is important to note that there were far too many games for us to see. There was no way we cou...[Read More]
During PAX East, I had the pleasure of sitting down with developers at the IMGN.PRO booth for a hands-on preview of the game My Memory of Us. Though the game is still in its early stages of development and has yet to be given a release date, I can confidently say that I have never been so deeply moved by a game so quickly.
I got the opportunity to sit down and play Serial Cleaner, developed by Digital Fun and iFun4all, at PAX East. I didn’t know what to expect when I was told the concept by the developers, which is, “Fargo meets Hotline Miami,” but I did know that was enough to intrigue me. Serial Cleaner is a stealth action title in the veins of games like Party Hard, and yes, Hotline Miami. Judging by the title, y...[Read More]
Some of the earliest first person shooters, and even games as a whole, I remember playing in my youth were Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, and Quake. Ever since Bethesda has taken over the old iD Software licenses, they’ve been slowly bringing the classics into the modern era with Wolfenstein: The New Order and DOOM. Now, it’s Quake’s turn with Quake Champions, a mulitplayer experience that’s focusing...[Read More]
Let’s play a game. I’m going to say a word you and think of something that correlates with it. Ready? Okay: Harmonix. If you the first thing you thought of was a video game, great job. That’s what I was going for, however they are branching out later this year. They are taking a risk with their upcoming AR(?) card game, Dropmix.
