SORT BY Relevancy
We just got back from PAX Prime, and only Simone contracted the dreaded PAX Pox. After a sound berating, we get into the news from the convention.
Nicole got a chance to try Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 and loved it, but not as much as she loves new MOBA Gigantic. Courtney has some disappointing impressions about Star Fox Zero, but she and Simone played basically the best VR game on Oculus Rift ever: Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes. Simone shares her impressions of the new Skylanders SuperChargers Racing for the Nintendo 3DS, and Linda talks about the ID@Xbox event she attended.
And that barely covers half of our PAX news! Check out pixelkin.org for the full details.

BOTH Hours: It's our Gamer Tuesday with Correspondent Josh Boykin!
Please welcome Josh Boykin, our newest Gamer Correspondent to the Computer America Show! Josh is an Editor at Large with Popzara.
Tonight’s topics include:
MOBAs: More than just LoL and DOTA!
MOBAs (Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas) are an increasingly popular game genre, with new ones showing up on the scene more than ever. The two that hold the crown currently are League of Legends and DOTA2, but let's talk about some newcomers to the fray. On PC, Activision's Heroes of the Storm just came out of open-beta, and on console, EA's SMITE just started its Xbox One beta. In addition, we'll talk about Vainglory, the "unapologetically hardcore" MOBA by Super Evil Megacorp designed for touch-screen devices.
Storytelling in Gaming 2015
Adventure games are constantly evolving, and two of this year's biggest have been Telltale Games' Game of Thrones and Square Enix's Life is Strange. We'll talk about adventure gaming, storytelling in video games, and other adventure games we've played in the past and are looking forward to in the future.
E3 2015: Getting Ready for the Big Show
E3 2015 officially starts on June 16th; this'll be the last chance to talk E3 before the show arrives. We'll talk new theories, and any last-minute predictions before the show.
