RTX: All the coverage from the South's latest game expo photo



"Bring PAX to the South" you screamed. While Penny Arcade might not have heard you, Rooster Teeth did and they put on a hell of a show this past weekend. With four times the attendance of last year, a public demo of one of the year's most anticipated games, and a killer venue, RTX is eating Penny Arcade's lunch while they figure out how to expand PAX in coming years.

RTX isn't quite worth flying out across the country just yet, but it's getting there. If they can get more developers and more space (they used approx. 1/20th of the convention's space), RTX could really become something special. These guys learned a lot from PAX's early years and modeled themselves after their success. It'd be great to see a major gaming convention in my home town, and SXSW is the proof that we are ready for it.

Here's all of our coverage from this year's RTX. Now, excuse me while I gear up for QuakeCon.

[Psst, sorry that we didn't have a Dtoid meet-up or anything. Between EVO, travel, and work stuff, this was the worst weekend ever to cover an expo so there wasn't any time. We'll be sure to have one during QuakeCon and maybe Gearbox Community Day, so stay tuned.]

We can't see the new Doom yet, but it sounds like a return to form

Bethesda said its big reveal of Doom -- that is in fact "Doom," not "Doom 4" -- at QuakeCon would be for attendees only, not for us Internet ne'er-do-wells, but I still watched the QuakeCon stream like a sucker, anyway. When ...more

Nintendo's Comic-Con lineup includes Super Smash Bros., Hyrule Warriors

Nintendo is calling their San Diego Comic-Con lineup their biggest ever. To me it looks like they packed up their E3 showing and saved it for SDCC. That's great news as their E3 showing was fantastic.  They're back at th...more
