Tower Defense is a genre that has, these days, seemingly been relegated to browser games or smart phone apps. You don’t often see a serious go at making an entry into this genre competitive or deep.
Today, I got the chance to speak with Kixeye and check out their new MOBA, TOME: Immortal Area. Now, I have no misconceptions, the MOBA genre is quickly becoming flooded. DOTA may have started the boom, League of Legends continued it, and every IP, from DC, to Lord of the Rings, to Warcraft is getting in on it. So why then, should I have any excitement for “yet another addition”?
Over the weekend, Logitech gave me a quick demo of some of their new hardware they’re going to be emphasizing in the coming year. We focused mainly on three different models of mouse. Both wireless and wired mice, they focus was on high performance gaming.
I stopped by S2 Games booth on Monday to wrap up what had been a crazy busy weekend at PAX Prime. I spoke to one of the balance designers on their latest title Strife about how far the game has come from the demo they presented last year.
Every year, at events like PAX Prime in Seattle, developers showcase the latest trailers and demos for their hot new titles. This year, we’re eagerly awaiting news for these great looking titles:
Lords of the Fallen is a dark new action-adventure game developed by Deck13 Interactive and CI Games. Likely to be showcased at PAX Prime tomorrow, the developers have just released a new trailer outlining now only the general premise of the title, but also showcasing the world in which the game will take place.
One of the pleasant surprises from PAX East was the reviving of local multiplayer games, particularly when it comes to co-operative gameplay. The best example of this was Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime.
I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Square Enix’s next-gen release, MURDERED: Soul Suspect, so when I got the chance to demo it at PAX East this year, I was really excited! Let’s just get right into it, shall we?
One of the best aspects about conventions is the cosplay, and one thing we like to do when we attend these conventions, is keep our eyes peeled for some of the most awesome outfits that we can share with you guys who didn’t get to see them in person. At this year’s PAX East, we captured some great costumes and met some really fun people!
Prepare for PAX South! Among the barrage of exciting news coming from PAX East this weekend was the announcement of a previously hinted at PAX event to debut in 2015.
The exhibit floor of PAX East 2013 was incredibly impressive. Sadly, it appears that we won’t be able to say the same from 2014. Some key names aren’t attending.
One of the coolest moments for us last year at PAX Prime was getting to interview Amie Lynn. Most of you probably know her as a YouTube personality or cosplayer, we know her as a die-hard video game fanatic.
