PAX 2012: Warren Spector talks Epic Mickey 2

Warren Spector is one of my personal heroes in the game industry, and when I heard we were given an opportunity to sit in a roundtable session with him to talk about Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, I jumped at the chance. We were treated to an hour-long discussion and hands-off demo of Epic Mickey 2 and learned just how much of a Disney nut Mr. Spector is.

PAX 2012: Ratchet and Clank: Full Frontal Assault Eyes on Impressions

We went eyes on with Ratchet and Clank: Full Frontal Assault during PAX 2012 while members of Insomniac demoed some of the PS3 exclusive's features for us.  The game is the next in the Ratchet and Clank series but instead of doing a straight sequel, the team has decided to mix things up quite a bit by adding tower defense sections to the game as well as a full out versus multiplayer mode.

PAX 2012: Marvel Heroes Hands on Impressions and Video Interview

We're still churning through the video footage from PAX 2012, the latest coverage we've unearthed is from the recently announced free to play Action / RPG from Gazillion Entertainment and former Diablo developer David Brevik.  Marvel Heroes brings players into Marvel's Universe and allows them to take control and customize an impressive cast of characters from Wolverine, The Hulk, all the way to the more obscure like Emma Frost or Squirrel Girl.

PAX 2012: Medal of Honor Warfighter Hands-On Impressions

While we were partying it up at PAX we managed to get some hands-on time with Medal of Honor Warfighter. We've been trying to nail down any possible co-op details since it was first announced back in February. The good news is that the game will include a compelling single player campaign which explores some of the hardships professional Tier 1 operators (very, very dangerous people) face on and off the battlefield. There will also be several multiplayer modes, one of which uses two man fireteams.

PAX 2012: Colour Bind Hands-On Preview and Video Interview

The Indie videogame scene absolutely exploded at PAX Prime 2012.  From the huge Indie Game Mega Booth that occupied a quarter of the hall to various devs going "door to door" showing off their latest game, PAX was a hot spot for indie developers.  One such game we saw was called Colour Bind.  No, that's not a typo.  The game is a gravity and physics puzzle game where players have to get from point A to point B by manipulating switches, jumping over obstacles, and maneuvering objects all while managing up to three directions of gravity.

PAX 2012: Interview with Misfits Attic, Creators of A Virus Named Tom

One of my favorite reasons for going to trade shows is getting to meet folks I email or chat with on a regular basis via the internet.  One such person is Tim Keenan of Misfits Attic, the creators of the recent co-op puzzler A Virus Named Tom.  I've been corresponding with Tim for the better part of the last two years now, so getting to meet him in person at PAX 2012 was definitely high on the list of things to do.

Not just another zombie game

PAX 2012: Contagion Hands On Impressions and Video Interview

Left 4 Dead popularized the co-op action zombie game genre for sure, but the series certainly isn't the only game in town.  Killing Floor started as a Half-Life mod and moved into full blown territory shortly after and Contagion looks to do the same having come from the creator of the Half-Life 2 mod called Zombie Panic: Source.   We went hands on with the game at PAX Prime 2012 and came away impressed with some truly unique gameplay elements.

PAX 2012: Company of Heroes 2 Hands on Impressions

There's only one Company of Heroes game (technically an expansion) that had co-op, and that's Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor.  But given the opportunity to see Company of Heroes 2 at PAX I had to jump at the chance.  I'm a huge fan of the series which has been developed by Relic, creators of Homeworld, Dawn of War 2, and many other amazing real time strategy games.

PAX 2012: Orcs Must Die! 2 Interview and Giveaway

The PAX content just keeps rolling in, the latest is our surprise interview with Justin Korthof of Robot Entertainment.  Mike and Nick found him roaming the show floor and decided to hit him up to chat about Orcs Must Die! 2.  We gave the game a solid 5 out of 5, but the rest of the internet may not have been so kind, so we got the details on what he thought as well as the new Fire and Water DLC.

PAX 2012: The Cave Hands-on Impressions

For me, The Cave was one of the standout games I saw at E3, in no small part due to the fact it's an adventure game by Ron Gilbert and Double Fine. Sure, there's some pesky platforming involved, but don't be fooled: this is an adventure game in the old style, complete with logical-yet-nonsensical puzzles and the trademark Double Fine humor. We weren't able to put hands on the game at E3, but when we heard a more recent build would be playable at PAX, I told Nick we needed to make an appointment post-haste.
