PAX Prime 2013: Convention Report

Sep 05, 2013

This year, PAX Prime went for four whole days instead of the usual three! Luckily, there was lots to see and do at the video game convention. Both Sony and Microsoft showcased new games that were coming out for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Nintendo was also showing off some games that will be out for the holiday season. Additionally, some games were even announced and revealed at PAX!

Familiar Faces in New Places

It's been nine years since the last Pikmin game came out, but Pikmin 3 is well worth the wait! The game features beautiful graphics and two new types of Pikmin. Additionally, there are new characters to meet and a new competitive mode, called Bingo Battle, to try out. Nintendo also brought Pokemon X and Y and PAX attendees had the chance to demo the game through several battles, including one that lets you mega evolve Mewtwo and do serious damage! Not to be outdone, Sonic also has a new game in Sonic Lost World. The game is somewhat similar to Super Mario Galaxy in that Sonic travels between floating worlds that he can walk all over, including under. However, Sonic's trademark sprint and dash is in the game and the action/platforming is very enjoyable, making the game very promising.


New and Exciting

During PAX, Sega revealed a new game that they are publishing for the iOS, called Heroki. Heroki is an interesting hero that flies around wherever you tap on the iOS touchscreen. You can also have Heroki pick up objects and throw them at enemies using Angry Birds-like touch controls. Harmonix also brought a playable version of Fantasia: Music Evolved, which is coming in 2014. The game uses the Xbox One Kinect motion controls and allows you to control and remix songs as you play through the track. The gameplay is very interesting and makes you feel like a music conductor.

What you’re refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/LInux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX. Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

No they shouldn't be allowed to play video games.  The best thing for women to do is to go out and settle down with a nice dindu as soon as they reach the age of 18.
