PAX South 2015: Homeworld Remastered Collection

There are few titles that stand out when I think back on truly memorable games.  One of those titles is Homeworld and its sequel.  First released way back in 1999, Homeworld featured true 3D navigation (X, Y and Z axis), detailed animations, unique ship types, an emotionally engaging epic story and a kick ass soundtrack.  And guess what folks?  It’s getting a re-release with improved graphics, additional lines of dialog and high resolution support.  This collection...

Pax South 2015 Indie Game Spotlight: Broforce

When Contra first came out, it was clear to those old enough to realize that it was a sort of play on beloved action movies such as Predator and Rambo. You playfully named the “blue guy” and “red guy” after the famed heroes with little to no regard as to what their names actually were. After that, it was shoot, kill, blow up and repeat. But what if you could enjoy the side-scrolling carnage of...

Predict the Winners, Win $1000 from NAVGTR

In case you missed it, I was actually a part of the NAVGTR Nominations: Whip Caucus panel during Pax South.

As you can tell, Pax South was filled with Indie darlings. Today, let us introduce you to a game we actually loved during Pax Prime but totally dropped the ball on sharing: it’s Adventures of Pip.

Pax South 2015: Raising Hell

Pax South 2015 Indie Game Spotlight: Raising Hell

Continuing our tour around the Pax South Expo Hall, we find ourselves playing the devil trying to get out of hell in a game called Raising Hell. Hell is freezing over and you need to get out. You play as Damian. Teleport, slice angels and demons, shoot bazookas, and generally raise hell!† In this flagship game from Mish Mash Machine, we found ourselves another addictive gem. Simply tapping on the screen you control Damian, who can...

Pax South 2015 Indie Game Spotlight: Texas Twist Poker

It was only natural that we found our way to the poker table during Pax South. Texas Twist™ Poker will change the way you typically think about playing poker. It’s not played with chips and cards on a traditional poker table. Instead, Texas Twist Poker is a mobile puzzle game where players try to get the best poker hand while navigating through a cube. While this might sound simple enough, for every move you make there...

Gonzalez Convention Center during Pax South 2015.
