PAX South 2016 is this weekend, and Sub Cultured will be there keeping you up to date with the latest news from one of the south’s biggest gaming cons. This, their sophomore year, should be even bigger than last, which saw games like Gigantic and Brawlhalla dominate the show floor.
Beyond the huge expo hall full of games, tabletop and console gaming rooms, there’s also a number of tournaments from console (Smash Brothers, Mario Kart, Goldeneye) to PC (Goat Simulator, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, and Minecraft), handhelds, and tabletop games. Still not quite sure how one plays competitive Goat Simulator, but I definitely want to watch it.
The panels this year also have a lot of really interesting topics. Notable events include Storytime with Cliff Bleszinski, Twitch Town Hall, and Queering up Misconceptions: LGBT Game Industry Life. And of course there’s the PAX staples of the Omegathon, Penny Arcade Q&A, and Penny Arcade Make-A-Strip.
If you see us on the con floor, be sure to stop us and say hi! Also, Colby will also be on the Decision 2016: Vote on Game “War of Awards” panel in which the audience and panel members debate among last year’s award winners to decide which is the best game in each category. Come on out and argue for your favorite game!

Author: Put Me In The Story
Release Date: Available Now
In a galaxy far, far away, everyone must decide where their true allegiance lies.
We all imagine ourselves as the hero of our favorite stories, and with Put Me In The Story, you (or the person you gift this to) can become the star character.
When you order a book from Put Me In The Story, as a gift or for yourself like I did, you upload a photo of the recipient and include personal information like their name and a message (I chose “Fortune favors the bold.”). By doing this, you get immersed in the universe and it helps you feel as if you’re being asked the questions by these classic characters. It’s done to great effect!
The book itself is meant to help you on your path. First Yoda, Anakin Skywalker, Mace Windu, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia ask questions to guide you and help you become a Jedi Master. Remember, a Jedi can feel the Force flowing through him. Then the dark side of the Force will try to sway you – flip the book over and meet General Grievous, Darth Vader, Count Dooku, Darth Maul and Darth Sidious. Each side reveals your rank among the Jedi and Sith with a personalized certificate and poster with your picture, which is uploaded at checkout!
It’s a fun twist on the “Choose Your Adventure” style of books, and one that is definitely a memorable keepsake, especially as The Force Awakens release looms ever closer.
While the age range for the books is from 4-10, as a grown woman nearing 30, it’s just as enjoyable to read up on how my personality aligns with the Force. Plus, it’s always cool to learn more about your favorite characters. Now, I just need to hope I don’t let Princess Leia down!
