PAX 07 Omegathon concludes with Halo 3

The Omegathon has become an annual tradition at PAX, and this year was no different. A gaming challenge that runs the gamut from the old school to tabletop gaming, the Omegathon truly tests the mettle of its participants. Another aspect that has become a tradition is the top secret final round of...

PAX 07: Namco Museum DS has more options than games

Poor Namco Museum DS was sitting there in the Bandai Namco booth all alone, while people ignored it in favor of new games. It needed just the right person to come along and play some Dig Dug II. Dig Dug II is, of course, unchanged, as are all of the games in the collection-- that's kind of the...

Girls deliver awkward PSP experience at PAX

Having people get hands-on time with the upcoming PSP-2000 makes a lot of sense to us. But, according to Joystiq, the experience at PAX was a little uncomfortable. The Sony booth girls (who look a lot like PSP-tan) had systems tethered to them. However, for better or for worse, the systems were...

Because there was so much to do at PAX that some fans may have missed their chance to pose questions, Mike and Jerry held a second panel.

PAX 07: Attendees play the Feud

The PAX Family Feud game, I can safely say, was the greatest game of Family Feud in the history of the known universe, including unknown Feuds taking place in distant galaxies between gaseous superbeings. No hyperbole. Why? Because it was about video games, of course! Also, host Alon Waisman was...

PAX 07: The World in Conflict party

Sure, we had a lot of blogging to catch up on, but we couldn't help but stop by Sierra's splashy Word in Conflict party last night if only to play our favorite game: "How Much Do You Bet This All Cost?" Alongside what appeared to be real military vehicles (they're scary looking in Real Life) and...

And that's why we're happy to present you with this here audio file which should manage to better communicate the cheers of adulation and camaraderie. But don't go thinking audio is an...
