PAX East 2020 Officially Gets Bumped Up A Month

You know all those complaints people make about PAX East being too cold in Boston in late March? Get ready to hear more of that. Every year since they started PAX East, Penny Arcade had had it as the last convention of their season, and usually cap it off just before Spring starts in April. […]

We Tried Out The Oculus Quest at PAX East 2019

We Tried Out The Oculus Quest at PAX East 2019

One of the coolest appointments that almost didn’t happen at PAX East this year was a visit to the Oculus booth to try out the Oculus Quest! Which is something we seriously wanted to tackle at this event because the company went all out and made some massive VR booths to show off the gameplay […]

We Experience The Awesomeness of What The Golf? at PAX East 2019

One of the last games we played at PAX East this year was the hilarious pseudo-golf game from Triband, What The Golf? If you’re unfamiliar with this game, it uses the basic premise of point and click golf mechanics you’ve played a hundred times over in simple flash games on the internet, only they change […]

Living By Chance With Dicey Dungeons at PAX East 2019

One of the last games we checked out at the end of PAX East this year was a cool RNG indie title called Dicey Dungeons. This game is so indie it only has three people working on it as you have Terry Cavanagh as the designer, Marlowe Dobbe as the artist, and Chipzel for the […]

Things Get Surreal With Where The Bees Make Honey at PAX East 2019

It isn’t often that we experience déjà vu at a convention, but that’s exactly what I went through with Where The Bees Make Honey at PAX East. This is a game that we have never played before or seen at a convention prior and to the best of our knowledge we hadn’t even touched as […]

Stumphead Games Bring Super Crome: Bullet Purgatory to PAX East 2019

An awesome little space shooter we got to experience at PAX East this year was Super Crome: Bullet Purgatory from Stumphead Games. This game gives you all the glory of old arcade shooters you could imagine, all the way down to the pixel art, but with all of the insane action of today’s games. There’s […]

We Don’t Know What To Think Of Speaking Simulator at PAX East 2019

The one game demo that we got a really uncomfortable feeling trying out at PAX East was Speaking Simulator from Affable Games. The premise of the game is short and sweet and to the point, as you play as some entity trying to program robots to perfect emulate humans to fit into society. One of […]

A Living Paranoid Comic: We Played Liberated at PAX East 2019

A Living Paranoid Comic: We Played Liberated at PAX East 2019

We paid a visit to the crew at Atomic Wolf over at PAX East this year and got treated to an interesting comic book game called Liberated. This game takes place in a future where tech basically spies on you at every turn, as you are monitored in-depth and all of your actions are judged […]

Building Trains With Railroad Corporation at PAX East 2019

Sometimes you get a game where you just get to be a kid again, like when we tried out Railroad Corporation from Iceberg Interactive at PAX East. Developed by Corbie Games, this is exactly what you might think it is and more as you’re essentially a railroad baron of sorts who is putting together a […]

During our time at PAX East this year, we decided to pay a visit to the ThinkGeek booth to see what new awesome items they had on the digital shelves.

We Check Out Wyrmwood’s Gaming Tables at PAX East 2019

On our last day at PAX East, I decided to mosey on over to the tabletop area and pay our friends at Wyrmwood a visit to see what they had to show off. The company was showing off all of the tables on the main floor that they currently had for sale to show that […]

We Try Out The Console Version of Faeria at PAX East 2019

The last game we got to try out at the Versus Evil booth at PAX East was the Abrakam SA turn-based card game Faeria. Now this game is already out on PC and mobile devices, in fact, it turned two years old back in March. So going over the game doesn’t really serve much purpose […]

Versus Evil and Breadcrumbs Interactive Bring Yaga to PAX East 2019

Another game we got to check out at the Versus Evil booth at PAX East came to us from Romanian developer Breadcrumbs Interactive called Yaga. The game is pretty cool in the idea that while the character stays the same as being a portly one-armed man, the story changes all the time depending on some […]

Running Through Zombie Hell in Into The Dead 2 at PAX East 2019

Running Through Zombie Hell in Into The Dead 2 at PAX East 2019

Versus Evil brought a few surprises to PAX East with them, including a Nintendo Switch version of Into The Dead 2 to try out. If you’re not familiar with this game, this is a mobile zombie survival title developed by PikPok in New Zealand. The premise is that you weave back and forth as a […]

Gotta Catch and Upgrade and Collect in Cardpocalypse at PAX East 2019

We paid a visit to the Versus Evil booth at PAX East and got a chance to check out a new game from Gambrinous called Cardpocalypse. If you’re not familiar with Gambrinous, it’s a one-man studio of Colm Larkin who was behind the indie hit Guild of Dungeoneering, so we already had high hopes checking […]

We Saw The Brutality Of War in WARSAW During PAX East 2019

Pixelated Milk and Game Company (yes, that’s their real name) brought an interesting surprise with them to PAX East this year with WARSAW. The game puts you in the middle of Warsaw, Poland during the uprising in the city in 1944. If you’re not familiar with this particular point in World War II, the Polish […]

Kids Hinder Our Progress in Fromto at PAX East 2019

Kids Hinder Our Progress in Fromto at PAX East 2019

Another cool game we got to try out at PAX East this year from Headup Games was an animated title called Fromto created by Studio Erikson. The entire game was created by the game’s creator and his kids as they provided the art and he supplied the means to make it go. This is a […]

Roguelite and Alone As We Tried Colt Canyon at PAX East 2019

While we were at PAX East we spent some time with Headup Games, and the first title we got to see from them was Colt Canyon. This particular game looks like an old-school Atari throwback as you will play a cowboy in the middle of a western landscape who’s partner has been kidnapped and you […]

Bethesda Softworks Let Us Try Out Rage 2 At PAX East 2019

One of the fun little off-site surprises we got at PAX East this year was Bethesda Softworks showing off Rage 2 in a hotel comedy club, which we gladly played! This particular demo was set on a 20-minute timer, so we basically had to jump in and go with what we had, which was a […]

Trying To Undo The Past in The Forgotten City at PAX East 2019

One of the last games we saw at PAX East this year was a new first-person adventure from Modern Storyteller called The Forgotten City. Our own Madeline Ricchiuto checked the game out earlier this year at GDC and wrote up her thoughts on it, so I won’t spend a ton of time covering what she […]
