Another PAX has come and gone, and it goes without saying that those in attendance had a blast getting their geek on. The three day exhibition was crammed with panels, presentations and discussion sessions worthy of mention, but the highlight for us was Naughty Dog’s public showing of an extended The Last of Us gameplay demo that was shown to a select number of gaming journalists behind closed doors at this year’s E3 Expo.
If you weren’t able to make it to Seattle last weekend, you can see said PAX gameplay demo here, now, and in high definition.
To borrow the words of ND Community Strategist Eric Monacelli, the demo highlights narrative exploration through interactive prompts, environmental puzzles, the balance of power AI, and some of the dynamic stealth elements players will be able to use to safeguard Joel and Ellie’s well-being.

Usually, Nintendo is the last company to make their E3 presentation. If you’re a Nintendo fan and you want to know what they’ve got up their sleeve, you have to wait and wait and wait through all the other guys’ boring videos about meatheads shooting aliens in order to to
The country may be finally recovering, but it’s still a bit too early to hold giant conventions that pack thousands of people into an enclosed space like sardines (and even if it wasn’t, the wheels for this were set in motion months ago). E3 2021, like E3 2020 before it,
It’s E3 month, and though that doesn’t mean what it used to, there will still be a substantially larger amount of video game news coming out in June than there will be the rest of the year. Sony ejected themselves from the conference years ago, but Nintendo is still participating…and
