FEATURED VOXPOP maca2kx Metal Gear Solid was a watershed moment in gaming for me. The graphics, at the time, were phenomenal; the story was winding and engaging; the gameplay was sharp and not above breaking the fourth wall when appropriate. It’s one of the few titles where the number of times I’ve...

Best of PAX 2010

Posted on Friday, September 10 @ 15:52:11 Eastern by Blake_Morse
Last week Game Revolution loaded up the car and roadtripped from Northern California's Bay Area all the way up to Seattle, Washington just to play some video games and get drunk on the dimes of the corporations behind said games. We somehow made it back and brought with us a ton of snazzy exclusive interviews, hands-on impressions, swag, and a head cold. We thought we'd share everything but the cold with you, so here's our extremely arbitrary list of things that were awesome at PAX Prime 2010.


Item Seen Most on Show Floor The Plants vs. Zombies Cone Hats

You could not walk more than two feet without seeing someone who had one of these on. The masses of the undead, or at least those who had their faces painted to look like one, roamed the halls of PAX and streets of Seattle. It's a miracle any of us survived to tell the tale. The popularity of PvZ just goes to show that there is no difference between the hardcore and casual gamer. They're usually one and the same.


Best Cosplay Queen of Blades

All I'm saying is, I wouldn't kick her out of the hive after infesting her. Not only is this chick hot, but she's got one hell of an intricate costume going on here. The only time we saw her was when she was getting ready to enter the show but couldn't quite get there, because everyone and their mother was stopping her to snap a pic. I have no idea if she ever made it past the foyer, and if she did, how she managed to maneuver through all the crowds with those spider-leg appendages popping out.

Sarah Kerrigan, if you're reading this, call me!

 


Best Party We Crashed SEGA

Everyone's favorite game company with a blue-haired rodent mascot threw one hell of party at the Gameworks arcade in downtown Seattle. We weren't on the list, but I pulled some strings to get us in. We were given game cards good for 2 hours of freeplay on pretty much every game in the arcade. I hadn't been to an arcade in ages and had not seen a lot of the newer rigs they had there, so I was all gung-ho about nerding it up. Of course, I wasn't about to take on any of the guys playing Street Fighter III: Third Strike, so I opted more for the gun games, including one shooter that measured your love compatibility with your partner. And yes, I did play it with a girl.
 

Best Swag Capcom

Chuck Greene bobbleheads, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 T-shirts and posters, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 mustaches! And that's just scratching the surface of all the cool stuff they had. There's just no beating these guys when it comes to cool and original hand-outs for fans. Capcom knows their consumers well when it comes to shiny objects that fanboys will drool over. (Anyone remember the Mega Man 9 press kit?) The original MvC3 Meat Bun art I got for beating a couple folks in a quick tournament will be hanging on my office wall for years to come.


Best-Looking Booth Bethesda

No other company went as far out with their booth presentation as these guys. Giant decaying icons of Vegas, life-size statues of the heroes from the upcoming Hunted, a nautical theme for Brink, and a giant sign exploding with RAGE make up some of the finer details to this very fancy pants booth. The only thing that came close to competing was the giant neon TRON sign, but even then, that's just a neon sign. Anything involving a big fake Dinosaur will always win!
