    So this year may be a bit more interesting than usual. The Big Three all have exclusives due out in Q1/Q2 that we can guarantee will be on display.

    I can only assume Microsoft will be heavily pushing Sea of Thieves, because this demoed very well at E3 with the press and will only have been on the market for a week before PAX. They also tend to do very well with securing third party demos, but I wouldn't be surprised if the predominant focus will be "Xbox One X enhanced" demos.

    Nintendo's booth last year was in-sane, and granted it had the advantage of PAX being only a week into the Switch's release. So the hype was real. I 100% expect they'll bring back the video wall and competitive stage for prizes, plus focuses on Bayonetta, Kirby, and indies. I'd love to see Dark Souls make an appearance, and a live demo of the newly announced Labo kits would be dope.

    Sony is the odd duck. They have a plethora of exclusives that everyone wants to be there, but none of them with anything close to a release date and they're not too keen on public demos of early builds (reminder: this is only the 4th year they've attended East). God of War will undoubtedly be there, given its vague "Early 2018" window. Last year was VERY indie focused, so I'm curious if they continue that trend or just say "Screw it, come play a Dreams demo".

    I've found over the years I enjoy PAX more if I don't expect anything. I find more welcome surprises I wasn't expecting, so when a AAA does rear it's head I can squeal properly.

    Then again, I also ditched the long demo lines a long time ago. I love God of War, but... not enough to sacrifice 3 hours of a once-a-year event to play for 15 minutes.

    EA is one of the few developers that doesn't have a booth of their own, but rather outsources their product to other booths (ie. PAX East 2017 had Andromeda featured at the Microsoft booth). Fall games tend to be a long shot because developers are less inclined to bring previews before E3, BUT if EA does bring a build of Anthem that's playable I'd fully expect it to be at Microsoft since they broke the trailer during their conference.

    Worst case, we get one of those closed doors dev demo rooms with a big statue in front for photos. :biggrin:

    Hearthstone’s next expansion is due out mid/early April. I am hoping Blizzard shows up with something more than overwatch merchandise, like last year.

    Generally just whatever indie games I can get my hands on. Last year Snake Pass and Has Been Heroes surprised me.

    I'd love for Naughty Dog to do a panel again. They did one for Uncharted 3 and it was fun.

    A Last of us 2 panel would be awesome. Maybe more info on spiderman and the new god of war even though that comes out like 2 weeks later. Im not a big indie fan so dont have too much interest in that kind of genre. So not really sure what to expect this time around. Should be a fun time ill be there all 4 days :).

    I'm usually playing older games so rarely do new games grab my attention.

    However, I am looking forward to Call of Cthulhu, Pathologic 2 and Vampyr.

    With the new rumors about a classic Spyro remaster, I'd definitely love to see that. Other than that, I'm not really sure what's on the way for games at the moment, since I've been sticking to niche JRPGs lately.
