News From PAX Prime 2014
How are y’all doing?
Filled with a desire to play something fresh over the long weekend, the boys picked up Diablo 3. They started playing last night and their appreciation for the game increased with every loot drop. I knew they would like it.
I have actually spent a lot of time watching others playing that game. So, it was a huge surprise when I came across a video of Gauntlet 2014 (for PC and Tablets). It looks great, though Diablo gamers would probably feel like it was a table without legs, or a sunday without anything but vanilla ice cream. Still, the one thing that appeals to me is that the camera is zoomed out so you see more on the screen, and the old gameplay (hordes trapped behind walls waiting to be unleashed) is still intact. I loved the original, but ultimately never really had the patience in my waging of war, and so I found it too harsh. I always needed food, even if I wasn’t the Elf.
Geometry Wars 3 is another game that caught my eye. Neither game is announced for the One, but I am sure they will eventually make it there.
Let us know of anything you find interesting coming out of PAX. Cheers!
