Venturing Into The World With “Wanderlust Travel Stories” At PAX West

Still roaming through the Polish games area of PAX West 2019, we came across Wanderlust Travel Stories from Different Tales and Walkabout. This was an interesting little game to run into as it doesn’t necessarily focus on any kind of specific achievement system, more on what you get out of it. The game takes you […]

Rooftop Brawling: We Played ” Super Crush KO” At PAX West

Sometimes you just need a good brawler game, and I think I found a great indie game at PAX West 2019 with Super Crush KO. The game doesn’t have a ton of story to it, which is okay, it doesn’t really need much rhyme or reason to go beat people up. Short version: an AI […]

One of the best times we had to play a game on the last day of PAX West 2019 was when we ran into Nimble Giant Entertainment to play Quantum League. This thing basically has minor esports written all over it as you can compete as a 1-v-1 or 2-v-2 match where time and decision […]

During the last day of PAX West 2019, we stopped by EXOR Studios’ booth to check out their new incoming game called The Riftbreaker. This is a real-time strategy game with a couple of nuances to it that make it feel more original than the rest. This may sound a bit familiar to you, but […]
