Finally, PAX Prime is upon us!

The streets are crowded with costumed attendees and the non-costumed all milling towards the Seattle Convention Center and the various venues for the day’s panels.

We arrived early yesterday and now we’re set to bring you all the hands ons and gaming news your hearts desire.

So far, Alienware has announced its latest flagship gaming PC – a revival of the Area-51.

It’s a giant, well, alien-looking, triangular machine that’s meant to be the ultimate PC from Alienware in terms of functionality and performance.

Story time social commentary

We also sat in on a surprisingly emotional story time with Mikey Neuman at the Benaroya Hall. The turbulent and controversial news surrounding women in gaming, and what constitutes a “real” gamer or “real” game led Neuman to tell an anecdote detailing a personal and clearly traumatic experience he had with bullying and friendship when he was in the fifth grade.

Pausing more than once towards the end of his tale, Neuman choked up and expressed that he learned “people who are supposed to protect you won’t.”

On a lighter note, he explained a bit about his life at Gearbox and finding his voice for Scooter, a character from the Borderlands game.

The charismatic Neuman ended strongly telling the room to spread joy – that saying “do you even movie” sounds just as ridiculous as “do you even game.”

We wholeheartedly agree, sir.
