Microsoft, Nintendo to show at Penny Arcade Expo

Popular gamer-centric Web comic Penny Arcade is holding its third annual Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) in August, and the group says the three-day shindig is shaping up to be the largest yet. Attendees will get the chance to go hands-on with unreleased games; sit in on a number of conference sessions; witness the Omegathon game contest; and hit parties, concerts, and other activities around the clock.

Today it was announced that exhibitor space for the show has been sold out, with heavyweights Nintendo and Microsoft headlining the list of participating companies. Also set for the show are Nvidia, ArenaNet, America's Army, Turbine, NCsoft, Ubisoft, Rockstar, Mythic, Foundation 9, Red Octane, Flying Lab, Creative Labs, The Behemoth, Sabretooth Games, and Garage Games.

I disagree that max is unlikable. Chloe is infinitely more unlikable in my opinion.

gold_drake13h ago

omg chloe was awful. i really hated her at the end haha

Cacabunga8h ago

Abby was absolute trash protagonist in every way..
Tidus was so meh to me..
On villain side, the one i didn’t like wa Micah, because they wanted him to be that way and it was brilliant👍🏽

Rancegamerx10h ago

I agree, I liked Max, Chloe was a horrible friend and a bad influence.

Cacabunga3h ago

Everyone agrees on chloe, I’m sure even ND do.

H96h ago

Both are horrible, granted Chloe is infinitely worse, it feels like Chloe is just fanservice for people who too over the edge and wasn't written to be a character that makes sense

MrChow6668h ago

exactly I was expecting it to be a the top of the list

ravens527h ago

Ye I was expecting her too. Guess they actually played the game. Unlike you and whoever agrees.

Christopher6h ago(Edited 6h ago)

She's actually not bad. It's the writing itself that is bad overall, but she's fine overall. She's no worse than Miles Morales IMHO. Both thrust into a spotlight and receiving both praise and blame and dealing with it.

Forspoken is a bland game because it's 75% bland, boring, repetitive going through the motions and diversions that add nothing of the value with purposefully gated memory moments that don't feel organic or like you're discovering things but waiting for others to reveal things.

ravens524h ago

Exactly Chris. Even though I liked the game. I kno u played it. People who actually played it and went thru her dream saw she was a good likeable person who really just acted out due to being alone and unloved. I think your problem is it was open world, I think if it was more linear you may have liked it better.

savedsynner2h ago

Oh no she's bad. Very unlikable even before you add on the bad dialogue. The game could have been quite good with a good protagonist

Nerdmaster16h ago

Most of these aren't even that bad. Especially comparing to others like Squall "Whatever" Leonhart, Forspoken's Frey, and the guy from Atomic Heart.

-Foxtrot10h ago

Squall is one of the best developed main FF characters so...

People talk about his "whatever" thing thats at the start of the game, not the character he eventually becomes in the end.

BrainSyphoned9h ago

Squall is the best protagonists in FF so you can go whatever yourself.

H96h ago

My good sir, I need to steal that "you can go whatever yourself" because it's gold

BlaqMagiq19h ago

Except Squall has actual character development.
