PAX Prime is 2013’s remaining major gaming event this year. Many game makers have saved some of their best sneak peeks for last. At PAX Prime, gamers will finally get their hands on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and numerous upcoming games from Nintendo. PAX will be held at the Washington State Convention Center from Friday Aug. 30 to Monday Sept. 2.

If other gaming events like E3 and Gamescom are any indication, then we will see from Sony such titles as: Octodad: Dadliest Catch, Drive Club, Knack, Secret Panchos, Contrast, and Galak-Z. We can also expect viewable yet non-playable titles such as Gran Turismo 6, Killzone: Mercenaries, and Tearaway.

One of the more fascinating Sony panels will undoubtedly be the Naughty Dog session discussing the original The Last of Us ending as well as how creative director Neil Druckmann and game director Bruce Straley pitched the idea of The Last of Us to the rest of the team and Sony. Fans will get to see the concept art and discuss the differences of how the game was envisioned and what it finally became.

As Seattle being Microsoft’s hometown (okay, Redmond), they will surely bring the playable big upcoming titles like Killer Instinct, Ryse: Son of Rome, Forza 5, and my personal favorite Dead Rising 3. There are also rumors that Kinect Sports Rivals will be playable at PAX; so wear your sweatbands because the competition will surely be sweaty as well.

Major Nelson will be recording an episode for his podcast straight from PAX; so be sure to attend the event at the Serpent Theatre on Saturday. The show will be recorded live so who knows which special guests will show up or what will be discussed.

Nintendo will also be out in force with numerous games. Some of the most talked about will be: Super Mario 3D World, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Bayonetta 2, Pikmin 3, Rayman Legends from Ubisoft, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.

One of the most interesting events at PAX will also be coming from Nintendo. The Making of: Nintendo NES Games will help gamers understand how difficult the era of 8-bit game making was and what it took to get there.

Stay tuned for more PAX coverage from Seattle Chinese Times!
