Welcome to a special PAX East edition of Piki Geek TiG! Instead of going through the news, we’re going to briefly recap all of Piki Geek’s PAX content for the day – and let me tell you, there’s quite a bit of it.
So sit back, grab a rooibos tea, and hit the break. We’ve got some business to attend to.
First off, let’s start with… yesterday? Dan wrote a recap of his PAX East day 1 experiences.
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy (oh god that name) is pretty cool! Just be sure to watch out for nostalgia.
Planetside 2’s creative director, Matt Higby, sat down with Ben Chapman. He was excited about shooting things.
Double Dragon Neon captures the 80’s perfectly! Too bad the 80’s sucked.
Rock Band Blitz is a fun rhythm game, though it feels a tad weird without a typical plastic instrument controller.
Jet Set Radio is a loyal remake… except better.
Paradox’s The Showdown Effect and War of the Roses are both very different games, but they both look pretty promising.
BattleBlock Theater looks to be coming along smoothly – Zach likes it, at least.
By far the star of the show, Borderlands 2 impressed just about everyone at Piki Geek.
Star Command is a neat, quirky indie space title. Just watch out for those lasers.
Spec Ops: The Line is a total sleeper – despite delay after delay it still appears to be solid.
Super Time Force is a giant mindslap. It confused Dan.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown is coming along smoothly. It’ll likely please fans of the original.
Civilization V: Gods & Kings brings religion to the forefront in Civilization – at least until you get a billion spies.
