I’ll be spending a lot of time around games this weekend, but not quite in the usual sense.
Next week is PAX week, but also the week for the Aussie equivalent of GDC, Game Connect Asia Pacific. For the first time I’ll be down in Melbourne covering that as well, and as a result I’ll be leaving Sydney a little early.
But rather than fly down, I’ll be taking the train. A group of Australians are replicating the Train Jam from the United States, aiming to have a game finished in the time it takes to train down from Brisbane to Melbourne. I’ll be joining the trip halfway through, and it’ll be a fun opportunity to chat to developers on the way, see how the XPT train handles everyone’s oversized Apple chargers, and just have a chance to talk to people about their experiences.
It’ll be fun! Beyond that, I’ll probably have a last shot at [insert embargoed game here because I’m not allowed to talk about it] and, if it ever bloody loads, Destiny 2.
What are you playing this weekend?
