PAX Prime 2014 is in six days! There's a lot to plan for between now and next Thursday, so there's no time to waste. By this time next week, you'll already be too hungover to remember what's going on when, so you'd best study...

A Fistful of Gun is a chaotic, top-down, Western shooter

I appreciate how a publisher like Devolver Digital can put out games as different as Hotline Miami 2 and Hatoful Boyfriend within a few months, as well as this neat top-down shooter A Fistful of Gun. The game looks like ...

You'll have a chance to play Hitman: Sniper before its release and compete in a high score contest where the grand prize winner will get to have their face and name added into the game as a villain for Agent 47 to eliminate. Yup, you can win a part in an actual videogame!

Other prizes will be given out over the course of the night including gear provided by Razer, rare collectibles, and free drinks. Plus we'll have live music by RAY.VS, our very own Grimecraft, and Sabrepulse

Come join us at the Cavern Club on the second floor of the Hard Rock Cafe (116 Pike St, Seattle, Washington 98101) in downtown Seattle on Friday, August 29 from 8:00PM to 2:00AM for drinks, music, and a poutine bar! Yes, really.

Let's all play Captain Toad at Nintendo's PAX booth

As far as "games at PAX Prime I want to see" go, it's mostly a) a bunch of indies and b) whatever Nintendo's bringing to the show. While that second list is sadly missing Yoshi's Woolly World and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, ...

Watch Assassin's Creed and play other Ubisoft games at PAX Prime

Ubisoft seemingly takes the same approach to all of its PAX showings -- theater presentations of Assassin's Creed, and playable demos of its other upcoming games. PAX Prime 2014 in Seattle next week is no different, except fo...

Atari is rebooting the Alone in the Dark franchise

Horror this, horror that. 2014 is going to be known for the year the horror genre really took off again. Presumably because games like Slender Man, Outlast, and more have made some of the bigger companies realize th...

Indie Megabooth: The PAX Prime games you want to see

If you're going to be at PAX Prime in Seattle this year and you plan to play videogames sometimes instead of getting drunk and singing karaoke all of the times, you should go to the Indie Megabooth and see some of this cool, weird junk.  And that's not all. Chroma Squad, Hotline Miami 2. 78 games in total, including 20 truncated showings from the Indie Minibooth.

I forgot that I saw Guardians of the Galaxy last week, because it was good, but not as good as everyone's been saying. I also got real mellow playing the music puzzle game Sentris, and I want you to come to our stupid panel at PAX.

by Bill Zoeker

Max and I thought it would be a good idea to keep everyone posted on our goings-on. This was spurned by many, many people wondering why we've been filming in Max's actual kitchen. We answer this question, and some y'all haven't even thought of yet.

In the video above, you can find out why Max went to Comic-Con for one day, why Max is going to be out of the country for two weeks, and who will be on our PAX Prime 2014 panel. Oh yeah, by the way, Destructoid is presenting a panel at PAX, hosted by Max, myself, and various personalities from around the internet.
