Spring is right around the corner and with it comes warmer weather, rain showers, blossoming fauna and Jumpgate Evolution. As much as I'd love to think there are thousands of you out there that know all about the game, I get the feeling that in actuality the number is significantly lower. Granted,...

The lucky attendees of Penny Arcade Expo 2008 were able to get their hands on the upcoming PSN game Savage Moon before anyone else. We described the game as "Starship Troopers meets PixelJunk Monsters" at Leipzig -- and it looks like our description was spot-on. Check out the first (off-screen) ga...

Bethesda's Fallout 3 booth pretty much won the "Oooooooh!" contest at PAX by about a million rads. Not only did they have an Airstream trailer, fully kitted out in 1950s style and with Fallout 3 goodies inside, but they also had some of the best schwag at the expo. Vault Boy Puppet? Yes, please. F...

Wizards of the Coast has been very busy talking about the 4th edition of Dungeons and Dragons, which came out this year, as well as its Star Wars and D&D miniatures and the online version of Magic: The Gathering. So, we were really caught off guard when we stopped by the Wizards booth at PAX a...

After speaking with John Layman at PAX08, our second Champions Online interview was with content lead Zeke Sparkes. We talked sound effects, travel powers, character creation, controls and zone creation among other things. In fact, we actually got a short period of hands-on time with the game prio...

With the Penny Arcade Expo being all but a distant (yet fond) memory, we figured we'd post a few expo pictures for those who weren't lucky enough to attend and for those who gave up trying to navigate the chaos that was the show floor. Below you'll find a gallery full of PAX pictures that include th...

It's the day after PAX which doesn't only mean we're trying to catch up on sleep and attempting to figure out where we left our swag bags (please, don't ask), but it also means we have more X3F stickerings to share with you. And even though we didn't successfully ninja-stick anyone, we did slap X3F ...

The Dragon Age: Origins booth at PAX08 has been surrounded all weekend by both walls and people lining up to get inside. So when PAX opened for the third and final day this morning, we bolted straight to the game booth and avoided the nasty line. By joining in with the first group of the day to se...

Update: Even though we would have loved to capture video of the New Xbox Experience, Major Nelson requested that no video be taken due to the fact that the dashboard code hasn't been finalized. So, we respected his wishes. That said, Major's no video request didn't stop others from doing ninja-rec...

Our first stop on the whirlwind tour of EA's heavy hitters was with our favorite running, jumping, sliding, wall-climbing, Faith. Mirror's Edge continues to impress, and we were lucky enough to get a few minutes on a kiosk with her. However, the best thing about it isn't in the game, it was the ch...
