One of the most-requested items of exploration from our readers has been to provide a better POV/on-site look at the conventions we attend. There’s good reason to demand such content, too: Along with many other sites, we spend much of our time producing content around specific interviews, booths, products, or announcements, none of which really provide a feel for the greater, zoomed-out look at the convention.
One of many statues at PAX East 2013 -- this one's from League of Legends.
In our first PAXCast (of two) for the weekend, we previewed the first playable Unreal Engine 4 game, provided some quick first impressions on GRID 2, and discussed the role and presence of the hardware sector at PAX East 2013.
The video can be found below!
All of our PAX content can be found on the special PAX tab (top right of the menu), but for specific articles on the topics discussed, check these out:
Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"
First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
