PAX West Hands-On: Bayonetta 3

The Bayonetta series is probably one of the most infamous cult classics coming out of studio PlatinumGames. The original, way back in ye olde days of 2009, gained a number of fans…but not enough for original publisher Sega to consider the series viable. That’s where Nintendo swooped in, reviving the series with a second entry

PAX West Hands-on: Demonschool

“This looks just like old school Persona!” That’s the reaction I heard ringing out from everyone who saw Demonschool on the PAX West show floor. And, to be honest, it’s hard to blame them. An inferred school setting, the isometric camera view present in many screenshots, battle screens with large tall sprites…it does look vaguely

PAX West Quick Look: Lucid

Finally revealing your passion project to the world really is something every artist looks forward to. Having the opportunity to do so at one of the largest conferences for the medium you’re working in? All the better. This was the opportunity Eric Manahan of The Matte Black Studio had at 2022’s PAX West conference. The

PAX West 2018 Interview with Goichi “Suda51” Suda

Goichi Suda, commonly known as Suda51, has never been shy about his passion for the indie gaming market. As he told us back when we last spoke to him in 2016, his company, Grasshopper Manufacture, started off as a small indie studio, and he has been trying to get back into the “indie frame of

PAX West 2018 Hands-on: Gris

As the “video games as art” debate continues to rage on, this past decade has seen the rise of a genre I like to refer to as the artistic platformer. These are games that present themselves as rather simple 2D platformers, but attempt to tell a story or evoke emotion through their presentation and gameplay.

PAX West 2018 Hands-on: Devolver Digital

Devolver Digital – a game publisher a little less than a decade old, and one that has made quite a name for itself for publishing wild, violent, and experimental games. With everything from the stylish violence of Hotline Miami to the quest for true bird love in Hatoful Boyfriend under their belt, it’s safe to

PAX West 2018 Interview with Hidetaka “SWERY” Suehiro

Despite the glitz and glam and flashy demos from all the big publishers at PAX West, it’s easy to still find near-equal representation of smaller and indie titles right on the main floor as well. After all, many see the PAX conventions as a showcase for indie creators, so it only makes sense to have

PAX West 2018 Hands-on: Hitman 2

The Hitman franchise is one that’s somehow always eluded me. Aside from maybe twenty minutes or so with one of the original titles, I’ve never really gotten around to putting any remarkable time into the series. Perhaps because its original heyday, back in the early-to-mid 2000s, was during my teenage years when my parents would

PAX West 2018 Hands-on: Dauntless, and a Look at the Ostian Repeaters

While out at PAX West last weekend I had the chance to check out Dauntless: a free-to-play co-op action RPG currently in PC open beta from Phoenix Labs. I wasn’t completely unaware of the game going in. After all, several friends of the site such as Mr. Happy and Ethys are Dauntless partners and so

PAX West 2018 Hands-on: The Quiet Man

I wasn’t quite sure what to make The Quiet Man when Square Enix announced it a few months ago at E3 2018. After getting to play 30 minutes of the game at PAX West… I’m still not quite sure what to make of it. The game’s core concept is an interesting one- the main character,

PAX West 2018 Quick-Look: Left Alive

At PAX West 2018 we had a chance to sit down with Square Enix and get a closer look at Left Alive. We haven’t seen much of Left Alive since it was announced last year at Tokyo Game Show and even then, the trailer was more of a teaser.
