PAX Prime 2013 Report: Day One

Dying Light Screenshot

Between the exhibitors, the play areas, the panels and everything else that happens, PAX 2013 takes up the entire building, and another one across the street. PAX 2012 had approximately 70,000 attendees, and although I haven't heard any first-day attendance figures yet, today's floor felt incredibly crowded and tight—even more so than last time. In fact, it was jam-packed to the point that it was often physically impossible to get through the halls and see the things I wanted to see.

HIGH Almost everything the crows do in the first chapter.

LOW Every moment spent with the wounded crow in my inventory making that awful noise.

WTF So this tiny sparkly thing is in some shallow water underneath a shower, but rather than grab it myself I have to flush it down a drain and catch it at the other end of the pipe with a half-rotted net?

WTF How do you get a simple concept like TK mayhem so wrong?
