Well, it’ll probably be a lot of indie and tabletop games.
That’s the standard for PAX Australia, after all. I’ll be working from the show floor for the next three days, wandering various booths, hiding in the meeting room, and chatting to anyone and everyone. Including you, if you’re around! I won’t have a sign on my forehead or anything, but if you recognise me (or want to find out where I am), just ping me on Twitter or something. I’m friendly.
As for the things I know I’m already going to be playing:
- That Omni VR treadmill thing: seems way too gimmicky, which means I’ll probably love the hell out of it.
- Dawn of War 3: it’s playable on the show floor. Fuck yeah.
- Lots of board games: there’s quite a few I’d like to try before I buy, although it’ll be interesting to see whether stuff like Mechs & Minions and the new Blood Bowl will make an appearance.
- Element: it’s a cool looking RTS pitched at people who don’t have the time to play RTS anymore. From memory, anyway. The genre could use a bit of a revival beyond just becoming a variant of a MOBA.
That’s not the whole list, of course, but you’ll find out more about that in the coming days and weeks.
If I wasn’t at PAX, I’d be keen on checking out the new Call of Duty campaign if I was at home, but alas I’m not. Probably would be that or some more Crucible in Destiny at this stage, as there doesn’t seem to be a huge base for Titanfall 2 (on PC or PS4, miserably).
So, what are you playing this weekend?
