Yet somehow, it's the kind of ragtag show where titans like Spider-Man, Artifact, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate can stand toe-to-toe with promising indies like Due Process and Risk of Rain 2.
But before we post our usual best-of-the-best PAX wrap-up, we got a day-one opportunity to try two games that are quite unusual owing to their incredibly early status, their behind-closed-doors nature, and their "holy cow, these exist?" flavor: Streets of Rage 4 and Windjammers 2."
