Final Fantasy XV getting four new DLCs in 2019

Final Fantasy XV has already seen some story based DLC this year, but at PAX East there was an announcement from Square Enix regarding four add-on story packs coming to the game in 2019. The Dawn of the Future DLC hopes to set itself apart from other story-based add-ons by creating an entire season of alternate plot branches, building towards (what appears to be) a…

Penny Arcade Leak Describes Diversity Hub For PAX

Some interesting, possibly very positive news has leaked our way from Penny Arcade. We received some documents showing their plans to create something called the Roll For Diversity Hub & Lounge for forthcoming PAXes. A place where people can get information and support about all manner of topics, issues relating to "women, LGBTQ, people of color, disabled people, and mental health issues in gaming". It's…

Editorial: How We Got The PAX Post Wrong

Another member of this odd profession of games journalism made a point to me yesterday. He said that in RPS's statement about PAX, we had caused ourselves to become the news. Well, we're okay with becoming the news, but it's true that the statement misdirected the story, and what should have been the 2,500 words of arguments primarily in favour of attending PAX became a…

Feature: Penny Arcade Vs The People

To Boycott PAX Or Not To Boycott PAX?

Editor's note: RPS will no longer be covering PAX events. We believe that the values of the company operating those events conflict with ours, and as such we can no longer endorse their actions by providing coverage of PAX events. An explanation of this can be read here. However, others argue that attending can be an effective way to respond to the company's poor behaviour,…

Minecraft 1.8 PAX Wobblecam Footage

Minecraft 1.8 aka "The Adventure Update", aka "When Jim Plays Minecraft Again", has been shown on the show floor at PAX, and you can see a bit of that in action below, along with graphical tweaks, dungeons, Endermen, and so forth. You get to see the new inventory and some other stuff such as "creator mode", but the really interesting thing about 1.8 is the…

Have A Play Of CS:GO At PAX And E2

According to the official twitter account for Counter Strike: Global Offensive, they're going to be demoing their new game at PAX next week, and at Eurogamer Expo next month. Not only that, but if you turn up to give it a try, you'll get given a key for the beta. Sounds like a good chance for us to have an RPS vs Readers showdown to…

Ken Levine at PAX

Bioshock's big daddy, Ken Levine, took some time to talk to the masses about his life at the recent PAX. He tells a familiar tale of growing up with geek-tendencies, and then finding games as his place in life. It's a story that wouldn't have been out of place in this year's most exciting book about videogames. Anyway! PAX keynote beyond the jump.

PAX 08: Fallout 3 Does More Than Guns

The Penny Arcade Expo is, of course, a silly little fan-festival attended only by four people who like reading internet cartoon strips about swearing. It's definitely not a major gaming event at which a ton of important games are on show, and potentially a serious rival to the likes of E3 and Leipzig. There's no way stuff like Fallout 3 will reveal exciting new footage…
