Bethesda surprisingly underwhelming at PAX Aus 2015

By on

The Bethesda booth on the floor of PAX Aus this year is nothing short of an extravagant sight. Wanderers are greeted by a great vault door, slid aside to allow entry into a huge, dark, soundproof box. (It’s fairly obvious that their main focus this year was on Fallout 4. Maybe.) The line for entry into this box was a 30 minute wait, if you were lucky enough to make […]

HANDS ON: Ratchet and Clank at PAX Aus 2015

So I already freaked out about this game when the teasers and gameplay were released earlier this year, but I’m not done yet. Finally being able to hold the controller and interact with this game has been one of the biggest things driving me to attend PAX. And after all the hype, I’m happy… and I’m not. I mean, I got to play the two demo levels already shown in the gameplay videos released ages ago. Add that […]
