What we expect from PAX West 2017

PAX West 2017 is underway today, and Evan and Steven are on the scene in Seattle to get hands-on time with new games, interview developers, and talk to the fans at one of the biggest gaming events of the year. But first, they met up to discuss what they'll be getting a look at this weekend, from exciting newcomers like Tiny Metal (opens in new tab) to the biggest game of the year so far, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (opens in new tab).

We'll be posting videos and articles from PAX all weekend, which you'll find on our YouTube channel (opens in new tab) (hey guys, like and subscribe...) and under our PAX West 2017 tag (opens in new tab).

With over 7 years of experience with in-depth feature reporting, Steven's mission is to chronicle the fascinating ways that games intersect our lives. Whether it's colossal in-game wars in an MMO, or long-haul truckers who turn to games to protect them from the loneliness of the open road, Steven tries to unearth PC gaming's greatest untold stories. His love of PC gaming started extremely early. Without money to spend, he spent an entire day watching the progress bar on a 25mb download of the Heroes of Might and Magic 2 demo that he then played for at least a hundred hours. It was a good demo.
