PAX Australia Panel – For the Love of Gaming
One of the panels that featured on Saturday was the For the Love of Gaming panel. Panelists included myself, Tash Richards, Albert Caynes (Editor/owner, Hittin Crits), Brendan Roberts (Editor/owner, Progress Bar) and Ben O’Brien (Presenter/Producer, Big Head Mode).
The official summary of the panel:
From the untamed digital wilderness come five brave heroes. Well, maybe not heroes. But they sure are brave. Hear stories from five folks who stared into the face of videogame journalism and thought “I can do this.” Learn from their successes and failures, take part in an open Q&A, and get inspired to conquer that wilderness yourself. Featuring the editors of HittinCrits, Save Game, Progress Bar, DigitallyDownloaded and Big Head Mode on 2RRR.
Whilst Matt Sainsbury from Digitally Downloaded was sadly unable to join us, the panel was a great discussion and sharing of experiences and definitely a highlight of the convention for me.
For those who missed the panel, or those who were there and wanted to listen to it again, you can listen to the entirety of the panel below. I’d like to thank my fellow panelists for the fantastic discussion, and the audience for asking very thought-provoking questions.
