We went to PAX Prime 2015 and covered video games until our heads exploded. (We posted nearly 60 stories and we’re working on more!) We played SO MANY GAMES. And talked to SO MANY cool game devs. And got exposed to SO MANY germs. Nicole, Linda, Simone, and Courtney talk about some of their favorite games from PAX. Simone coughs quietly into her sleeve a little because she was the (un)lucky winner of the “PAX pox” lottery this year. But anyhow, listen up! We talk about many cool new games (and a couple of so-so ones).

Courtney talks about:

Simone talks about:

Linda talks about games she saw at the ID@Xbox PAX preview:

  • Halo 5—Is it going to be the biggest thing ever? Because it’s that good?
  • Anarcute—Is it going to be the new Katamari Damacy?
  • Draw a Stickman—Is it really going to be Kinect enabled? And is that going to be cool, or what?
  • Cluster Puck—Is this the greatest new party game?

Then Nicole talks about Gigantic, a new third-person MOBA. Did she like it? (Hint: YES!! She almost can’t say enough good about it.)

Courtney and Simone jet us right into the future with the VR game Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes. Could it be as cool as it sounds????

We also got the rundown on Eon Altar from Nicole. Does it successfully bring tabletop goodness to mobile gaming?

Waiting to get in to PAX Prime 2015

We reminisce fondly about the people we met at PAX. What a nice crowd!

And P.S. Courtney HAD to talk about GNOG. She loves her puzzle games. Linda HAD to talk about Eco. She loves her educational games. And Nicole had to talk about Hero Generations, which sounds really interesting.

If you have questions or comments or stories about PAX, please send them to hello@pixelkin.org. We’d love to hear from you.

About Linda Breneman

Linda learned to play video games as a way to connect with her teenaged kids, and then she learned to love video games for their own sake. At Pixelkin she wrangles the business & management side of things, writes posts as often as she can, reaches out on the social media, and does the occasional panel or talk. She lives in Seattle, where she writes, studies, plays video games, spends time with her family, consumes vast quantities of science fiction, and looks after her small cockapoo. She loves to hear from people out there. You can read more about her at her website, Linda Breneman.com or her family foundation's website, ludusproject.org.
