This year, I made an appointment to visit the Bethesda booth at PAX East to check out The Evil Within, the new survival horror game from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami. But while waiting for that scheduled showing, I had a little time to kill, so I decided to play a little Wolfenstein: The New Order…

The team behind Left 4 Dead are working on a brand new game for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and I got some hands-on time with Evolve at the 2K booth at PAX East! (The most eye-catching one with the life-size Goliath monster looming fearsomely over it! And by life-size, I mean in proportion to the humans crowding around below it!) Turtle Rock Studios knows from co-op gameplay, and this first-person shooter features four-on-one multiplayer as a squad of humans hunt down a monster rampaging through the environment. There’s a single-player mode being included in the game, but Evolve is all about the multiplayer, and that’s what was on display at PAX.

Well, I am still completely and utterly obsessed with Disney Magical World, although now that the game has been released and other people are playing it, I’ve had a chance to review the online features that weren’t available before. And unfortunately, those are somewhat lacking.

Also, I muse about popular and critically-acclaimed games that everyone else seems to love that I’ve just never been able to get into. I’m sure you’ve got some of those yourself. Make the jump and watch this week’s vidcast to see what mine are!

Anyone who demoed Murdered: Soul Suspect at the Square Enix booth at PAX East 2014 definitely got a real feel for the game, as it was one of the longest demos I’ve ever seen! It was literally the entire beginning of the game, where your character — hoodlum-turned-police detective Ronan O’Connor — is murdered, and his ghost cannot find peace until he tracks down his own killer. But not wanting to skip cutscenes for fear of missing important information, the demo ended up taking almost a half an hour, and there was still more to do when I kind of let myself die so that I wouldn’t feel like I was hogging the demo station!

One of the most intriguing games I saw at PAX East 2014 is barely a game — at least not in the traditional sense of the word. I was drawn to Dejobaan Games’ Elegy For A Dead World by its lovely, hand-painted art style, but what looked like a simple 2D platformer turned out to be anything but.

I have to admit that I have been completely obsessed with Disney Magical World and can’t stop playing it to make new fabulous outfits and enjoy new fantastic adventures. Especially since now that the game is out and the Miiverse community has launched, I can make better screenshots!

But the main thing I want to talk about this week is some follow-up on the PAX East Roll For Diversity Lounge, and how I will always attend PAX East as long as I’m representing GayGamer.net. Make the jump and I’ll explain…
