Today was the first look at the expo floor of PAX East. The amount of things to look at is just overwhelming. The floor is a crazy fast-paced arena of lines and lines for lines to wait in line. While I couldn’t dig too deeply into the party, I was able to sample a few layers of the cake, and I’m willing to share a piece with you. But only because you’re special.
As games evolve and bring us different genres, the communities that surround them tend to evolve as well and bring new forms. League of Legends is arguably one of the best MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) games out there, but certainly the most popular one today. That’s why it’s fitting for the first of a possible trending series – Neighborhood Watch – where we take a look at a different gaming community. This week we take a glimpse at League of Legends and try and figure out why one of the best games of its kind has one of the worst communities in gaming history.
Welcome to another installment of Let’s Make a Game! Last time we made a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game that may have been a bit prophetic, but I haven’t found anyone working on our subject this time; SpongeBob SquarePants. Let’s dive in and see what we can put together.
Welcome to Let’s Make a Game! This is the first installment in a new feature where we explore how we would make the games we want to see. Today, we’re going to make a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game with a little help from Batman: Arkham City and Darksiders, so let’s get started.
One last CES video for the road. Join Chase and I as we rattle off the most memorable exhibits of CES 2012, including an incredible console controller and 90s-riffic VR headset.

This is how we ended up with Street Fighter IV instead of an advancement from Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike. This is how we ended up with Final Fantasy IX instead of an advancement from Final Fantasy VIII. This is how we ended up with Final Fantasy XIII-2, and now this is where we are getting Resident Evil 6.
After a long week spent scouring the CES 2012 convention, Chase and I sat down to weigh in on the fantastical things we had seen. As it turns out, there actually wasn’t much that was truly surprising on the video game front. But hey, we’d traveled all the way to Vegas, so why not film ourselves talking it out? Here’s the coolest stuff we saw at the Sony and Microsoft booths, including Twisted Metal, Flight, and Nexiuz—a game that I apparently cannot bring myself to properly pronounce.
