April 2012

For the press hour we were able to book it right over to the awesomeness of Rockstar Studios, where we were able to get a chance to actually play Max Payne 3. Quite simply I am impressed with what I was able to witness.

I was surprised to see the return of an old title I used to play back in college. The Tribes franchise has always brought some of the most fast-paced multiplayer battles seen online. Today I have seen what happens when this beloved franchise ups the ante in combat mode: the free-to-play Tribes: Ascend.

Whenever you have Suda51 involved in any game, pure unadulterated insanity is what is to be expected. Here at PAX East that's exactly what I witnessed when I went hands-on with his latest gem: Lollipop Chainsaw.

In just one day, the geek culture will be invading our home turf. Droves of gamers, developers, and performers will be scattered throughout the Hub for PAX East 2012. What are some of the things we'll be looking forward to the most? Come with me now on a journey through my gaming-loving mind, and see what players should be keeping an eye on.

With PAX East and Anime Boston a couple days away the Bastards get their final gear together before embarking on their amazing journeys.

Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of the very first manga to ever get me into the world of Japanese animation. To celebrate I dusted off the Magic Knight DVDs and traveled back to the land of Cephiro with Umi, Fuu, and Hikaru. Magic Knight Rayearth was one the very first magical girl series, and has defiantly stuck with me throughout the years as one of my all-time favorites.
