This is it folks! The PAX East 2020 recap episode. We break down our favorites with special guest Matthew Adler. It’s Matt’s first show and he discusses his overall experience. We get into all that, our top picks of the show and why we all need an extra two days in Boston.
Our Superbowl of video games, PAX East 2020, has come and gone. It’s always a wild ride and this year even more so. Me and Dan are back home and back to the old routine. We’re working through all the games we are, preparing preview articles and gearing up for a PAX East recap megashow.
Possibly the best PAX we’ve ever been to overall. Look forward to all our coverage soon and our new episode soon.
It’s day 3 and boy is it a cold one. We’re still in here though. Saturday is always the most hectic but it’s the most fun in our opinion. Everything has settled in, the cosplayers are in full force, and the fans are hungry to play the new games on display. Some notable mentioned this far are Cloudpunk, where a narrative adventure unfolds and you taxi people around a dystopian cyberpunk city, Rising Hell, where crunching metal riffs and pixelated hellscapes are the backdrop for your ascent into a gauntlet of enemies, and Retromania Wrestling, a spiritual successor to the arcade classic Wrestlefest. All in all, lots of great games on display. Day 3 down and one more to go.
PAX Day 2 has ended and we have survived the day. We’ve surveyed the floor and found some hidden gems between all the booths. The crowds are bigger today. The devs are even more energized and the fans are hungry for all the gaming goodness. We scoped out some indie booths and got some really great demos and we can’t wait to talk about it on the show. Here’s to the next two days.
Amid fears of infection from the coronavirus, Sony backs out of PAX East and GDC and Square-Enix backs out their Japanese staff from PAX. It’s gonna be weird not seeing Sony at the show. Also in the news, more patents from Sony and Atlus says if fans want Persona on Switch, keep asking and ye shall receive. So check out all our pre-pax talk and on more on episode 207 of Rated G for Gamers.
