PAX East 2013 is now over, but it had a lasting impression on both those who were lucky enough to attend and those who watched a lot of the panels and show floor through Twitch.tv in the comfort of their homes (or at work, in some cases!). And although PAX had many a panel, awesome reveals and a lot going on, but here is some of the best moments and news to come out of the show.
- Cliffy B Opening PAX: Seriously, there’s nothing greater than getting someone awesome for the initial keynote. And Cliffy B, best known for his involvement with the Unreal and Gears of War Franchises. But his departure from Epic Games in December made his being the keynote speaker even more interesting. Speaking on his past with gaming and even his personal encounters with being bullied, it was a much more deeper and open keynote than some may have expected, making it all the better.
- DuckTales Remastered: Nothing garnered as much attention, game wise, as the remastered version of the NES DuckTales, coming to Xbox Live, Playstation Network and Wii U. Capcom is being the new version, which should be out in the summer and is bound to bring back a ton of nostalgia.
- Kris & Scott Panel: Kris Straub & Scott Kurtz, who have rised in popularity through the Penny Arcade website, are always a pleasure to watch together in a panel and this year was no different. The two are hilarious while still really informative about the comic work they do. If you can find this panel on Youtube, watch it and get some belly laughs.
- Mass Effect Will Continue On: Besides having a great panel, looking over the trilogy of a much beloved (as well as full of controversy) franchise, the Bioware team confirmed that we will see more of the Mass Effect universe, if not with Shepard, than in a different light and with a different story.
