Fullbright Company is skipping PAX Prime in protest

For independent developers, being able to show off their work at the PAX Indie Megabooth is a great opportunity. It's a good way to get exposure from both the press and the general gaming populace. Following a string of quest...

Microsoft returns to gamescom this year

I'm still kind of mad about Microsoft not showing up to gamescom or Tokyo Game Show last year. It was like going to a party where you expected one of the regulars to show up, but the whole experience just ended up being awkwa...

Whatever happened to the Wii Vitality Sensor?

I remember seeing the presentation for the Wii Vitality Sensor live at E3 2009. I remember the muddled "huh?" and "um, what?" exclamations in the audience, followed by a "I guess it could be cool for Silent Hill" response by ...

GDC 2013 is a wrap. This year we had a great time running around talking to game makers, press, and even the lively homeless people of downtown San Francisco. One of the latter asked me not to beat him up.  Not counting ...

Contest: Win a last-minute PAX East badge from Paradox!
by Mr Andy Dixon

[Update: Winners are ME4Twaffle, Will, and The Steamdriven, and runners-up were shadow1w2 and Kickass667!]

In honor of their new 2.5D action-movie-inspired sidescrolling multiplayer extravaganza The Showdown Effect (which we thought was awesome!), our friends at Paradox Interactive have given us five PAX East badges to hand out to the Dtoid community!

In The Showdown Effect, you play as one of several action hero archetypes -- the cop one day away from retirement, the kung fu master who owns a pawn shop, etc. -- so to win one of these badges we're asking you to come up with your own action hero! Give him or her a name and a back story and post your submissions in the comments below. After the deadline we'll award our three favorites with a weekend badge and two runners-up will get a Saturday badge!

You have until this Friday, March 15 at 11:59 PM Pacific to enter, and the contest is open to anyone who can make the trek to Boston, so good luck! Oh, and while you're at PAX next weekend, be sure to check out the LAN section, where Magicka is playable on every machine!
