There are a lot of games coming out this week, the vast majority of which are downloadable, independent titles that I've frankly never heard of. Odds are pretty good that there are some real diamonds in the rough somewhere in this cavalcade of small developer efforts, but I couldn't possibly tell you what your eye should turn lustily toward at this point. Maybe someday people will say, "I remember where I was when Retrovirus or Dungeonland was released into this world," but for now I'm plainly and admittedly ignorant.
I'm still sifting through the most random of games for something to play until some of the big games of spring hit. And so between half-hearted bouts of Defense Grid's latest DLC and Minecraft, my thoughts are beginning to turn toward PAX East in late March. There's something about buying plane tickets for a big event that makes it feel 73% more real than it did before. The moment I have an itinerary I'm ready to pack my bags and get going.
So far what we know about our PAX schedule is that the GWJCC Live show will be Sunday, March 24th at 12:30pm in the Arachnid theater and we will be joined by Jeff Green and Justin McElroy. The GWJ Slap and Tickle will be on Friday evening (likely 7:30 pm) at the Seaport Hotel's Tamo bar. There will be a lot more official sounding announcements as we actually get closer to the event.
