paxaustralia111

During my time as Editor-in-Chief of Save Game, I’ve been to a lot of conventions. Some of them have been local events. Others have been popular national events with attendance statistics over 100,000. I’ve even headed to the big one, E3. But of all the cons I’ve been to across the years of running this site, PAX Australia 2014 has been the first con where I’ve honestly been able to stand back whilst there and think “Damn. I’m HOME.”

It seems like it’s a big week of postponements for Playstation after 2K and Turtle Rock Studios announced this weekend’s Big Alpha for their latest first-person shooter, Evolve, will be delayed for PS4 players.

It’s a sunny afternoon in the middle of October, and I’m standing at the bow of a ferry that’s just left the wharf at Milsons Point. With a bright vision of Sydney Harbour behind me, my brief journey to La Corniche begins. There’s an event. The promise is the same as it always is, and echoes with the familiar staples.

I’ll be the first to admit that I have absolutely no working knowledge of the Skylanders video games. I came into reviewing Skylanders Trap Team as a complete newbie, with no prior conceptions of what to expect.
