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!
