Just another game about a time-traveling detective who deflects knives by spitting bubblegum at them as they fly through the air at full speed. Yep, just another game...

I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

PAX 2013 Might Just Be The Best PAX Ever

In all this hooplah over E3, don't forget about PAX now. It's only 85 days away! *feints*

In the eyes of the American gaming press, PAX Prime is as much about fandom and celebrating video game culture as it is about E3 clean-up. No one ever gets to play everything that they want to at E3, despite its three-day span, which means the importance of PAX will be much greater this year than ever before. Check out their main page: All of the badges have been sold out for weeks. (I'm so glad I'm press sometimes.)

For publishers and developers, it's one of their last major efforts to showcase their games before the gaming masses and before the holiday season. Whatever Microsoft and Sony are not ready to reveal about the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at E3 will likely be saved for PAX 2013. In kind, whatever games are not playable at E3which is a whole lot, I must emphasizehave a chance of becoming playable for the public at PAX. The same goes for the games that will be shown only behind closed doors at E3.

The fine folks at Penny Arcade have chosen, if you haven't heard already, to extend PAX Prime from three days to four. That's August 30 to September 2. Perhaps this is mere serendipity, but this is music to the ears of developers and publishers who want to grab the public's attention for as long as they can. (And hey, for the fans that means more swag and more Streetpasses.)

By the way, in Seattle it's legal to smoke marijuana now as long as it is in a private place. So if you weren't already high on video games... yeah.
