Top 3 games of PSX 2016

As is customary for the PlayStation Experience, indie titles were out in full force on the show floor. Although I didn’t get a chance to check them all out, I’m going to take this opportunity to shout out the titles that really stood out to me. To be honest, it’s not that hard to catch my attention: does the game have an interesting mechanic attached to its gameplay? Does it have an awesome soundtrack? Is it a MetroidVania style game? If the answer is yes to any of these, chances are it caught my eye. So, without further ad0, here are my top three games of PSX 2016! Hit the jump to read on!

The Highs and Lows of the PSX 2016 Keynote

The PlayStation Experience has come and gone for another year, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t bring some good and some not so good stuff with it. As with last year’s keynote, PlayStation came in swinging and left the room full of PlayStation fans impressed for the most part. Granted there were a few moments where it seemed Sony might be dropping the ball, but they quickly made up for it by doing what Sony does best: cater to their audience. And with that, let’s take a look at what the internet thought was the greatest thing of all time, and what was the worst thing to ever happen ever. Hyperbole is fun!

Doctor Strange: Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton Play Jenga!!

So Sherlock and the White Witch played a little game of Jenga as part of the press circuit for Doctor Strange. It was twenty-four glorious minutes. Fan questions were written on the tiles (or bricks as Benedict kept calling them). Watching them answer those questions just made me squeal. I personally am always in awe of how intelligent these two are and to have them together talking about French writers and the Theory of Relativity almost made me faint. I am going to go fan myself while you guys watch the youtube video!  Have fun!

SDCC 2016 – Interview with Hasbro, Transformers Generations

As a Transformers fan who remembers sitting in a theater being blown away by the 1986 Transformers movie (and literally bursting into tears at the death of Optimus Prime…what? Don’t look at me like that, it was sad!) and a huge fan of the IDW More Than Meets The Eye comic, I’ve been very excited by the latest Transformers designs from Hasbro. We’re seeing gorgeous G1-style Transformers along with new concepts and our favorite characters from the current comics.

Have you ever wondered why some designs are chosen over others? Which characters get featured? Who’s making the decisions? Wonder no more! We got to talk with John Warden of Hasbro, part of the Transformers Generations design team, at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Sure we asked him about the design process, the decisions, and the fan input. We also asked him about whether or not the Titans Returns Soundwave comes with the tapes (we’re all about the hard-hitting news here at PG. We’re also Team Soundwave, and don’t you forget it.)

SDCC 2016 – An Interview with Dave McKean

At this year’s Comic-Con I had the chance to sit down with artist and writer Dave McKean to talk about his graphic novel Black Dog: the Dreams of Paul Nash. Once I stopped hyperventilating I actually enjoyed the talk. (This is the guy who created every single cover in Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series, not to mention the director and co-writer of MirrorMask and the creator of all manners of books that I love. I was nervous, is what I’m saying.) What started out as a talk about a graphic novel ended up being a lovely conversation about art, tragedy, and music. See below for the video filmed at San Diego Comic-Con 2016.
