[Episode 48] PAX East and Listener E-mails!

[Preface: This should have gone up here last week, and did not. My bad.]

Here’s the bad news: Immortal Machines was sadly underrepresented this year at PAX East. Last year, we were there in full force, doing interviews, making videos, covering everything we could get our grubby little hands on; this year, though, things just didn’t work out that way, and nothing from the show floor was forthcoming. I know I’m personally bummed out to have missed a bunch of really cool stuff.

The good news: Steve did go, and he’s here to make us all feel jealous! So this episode opens with his PAX East report, including his favorites, his disappointments, and his surprises of the show. If you didn’t make it to PAX East yourself this year – or even if you did – we hope you’ll find it informative and entertaining.

After that, it’s on to your e-mails! We had two good submissions this time around – thank you, Jeff and Dennis, for providing excellent discussion-prompting material – so we dive into that for the latter half and talk a little bit about Steam’s impact on the PC games market in terms of pricing, and then a bit about PC gaming communities, specifically as they relate to user-generated content. It’s good stuff; keep it coming, guys. We love hearing from you.

A few relevant links from the discussion: (1) A first look at Portal 2’s single player gameplay from the PAX show floor. (2) GameInformer reports on Valve bringing the hammer down on a user trying to sell his Steam account. Yeah, that hammer. (3) The Carmegeddon mod for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto 4. Because it’s hilarious.

That’s it! Hope you enjoy as much as we did. Away we go!
