It’s kind of hard to believe that it’s nearly September, but that means both football and PAX are imminent. PlayStation will, of course, be in attendance; more details to come tomorrow. With the travel involved (I’ll be in Santa Monica to prepare for the God of War: Ascension panel before heading to Seattle), I’m looking forward to trying out Madden on PS Vita (find a review below).
At the show, we’ll be tracking down developers for in-depth interviews (which we’ll be sharing on the blog), and I’m really hoping to score some more hands-on time with Dishonored.
