In the past few years, some notable game journalists, like Shawn Elliott and Greg Kasavin, have jumped the fence into development. Always a contrarian (or something), for one PAX-filled weekend, I'll be leaping the other way!
As his final act as Paste's games editor (not really, but it sounds more dramatic this way), the illustrious Kirk Hamilton put things in place for me to write about the show for Paste. It won't be standard coverage with specific game previews or anything, rather it will be more general impressions of the show like Kirk did last year. So yeah, that's the legacy I have to follow. No pressure or anything.
Heh, this all assumes whatever ramblings I compile are actually fit it print too, of course. But already it's been very interesting seeing the show from this angle, so I think I'll be able to put together something hopefully worth reading.
This isn't the exciting news I mentioned a few weeks ago, but that should be coming soon. In the mean time, if you'll be at PAX this weekend, drop me a line!
