PAX Australia Panel – For the Love of Gaming

pax2014panelPAX Australia featured a plethora of panels covering a huge variety of topics. There were so many panels across the three days that pax-goers were spoiled for choice.

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.

    Tash is a self-diagnosed gaming fanatic with a doctorate in Psychology. She's also a self-confessed Mass Effect fangirl and will likely talk your ears off if you ever get her started on the subject. A lover of all things RPG and adventure, she has more gamer related action figures and memorabilia than any 20 something year old professional has a right to own, and has spent more time than she’d like to admit to daydreaming about exactly what she would do should the Zombie Apocalypse actually happen.
