GDC 15: Listing off the best of The 4th annual MIX

or four years running now, IGN has collaborated with people at Media Indie Exchange to host The MIX; a community mixer filled with people and indie developers who raise drinks and booze in hand in to celebrate the same communal kind of charm that you’d expect out of GDC.

I had the privilege to be invited to this fine event yet again, and as I strolled past the offerings booze and appetizers, I strolled the aisles in search of any game that caught my eye; especially something that I wouldn’t be able to see at GDC.

Here were all of my personal highlights from the event, and it’s safe to say that I left feeling a degree of anticipation for new games that I haven’t quite felt before.

GDC 15: Breaking down the IGF pavillion highlights

hat faithful time has arrived once more, the grand opening of the GDC expo floor, and like a moth to a flame, I immediately gravitated to the IGF Pavilion to experience the games that were picked as finalists for this year’s award show.

I have to admit, I was charmingly surprised as well, not since I had first played Gone Home at this very exhibit years ago, had I came away from the entire thing feeling so moved but what I was able to play.

Enough of the suspense, here are some of my favorites from the event that are sure to be on everyone’s radar when they release later down the line!

PPR Presents Play Play: Gaurodan

ure it’s cool to talk trash on the Ouya; in fact, gamers are quick to shit on it the moment any mention of the little android based console is ever uttered—but hey, there are moments when you got give credit where credit’s due.

The kickstarted platform that pledged towards to being a dream box for indie game developers and players alike, has definitely come through with giving them access to the obscure and niche little gems that the community is famous for on their home television sets, and Gaurodan just happens to be one of those gems.

As Gil and Ser bemoan the hardware, George tries to sway the gang to the idea of wrecking carnage and mayhem through the eyes of a nuclear-blast breathing pterodactyl bastard in this latest Play Play. Get set for a tour  of action as the PPR gang takes on this nifty little love letter to video games’ shooting classics like Defender and more in Gaurodan!

PPR Presents The Golden Zonkies: Class of 2014

014; whether it was a year you cherished or hated, there’s no denying just how eventful the past twelve months have been—especially for video games.

From budding next-generation consoles that are gradually gaining ground after being on store shelves for nearly a year, to the challenges and questions that have shaken the industrial and culture foundations that drive the medium of video games and it’s direction; the 365thchapter we’re about  to close on has sure had a lot of shit happen in it.

And just what kind of year would it be without the annual Press Pause Radio’s Golden Zonkies awards to get their last word in?

Everything from games to events that saw the light of day in 2014, across fifteen different categories, and we have that very list for you here now. We’ll be plowing through a prestigious catalog of choices, debating with one another from beginning to end in this epic podcast, each voicing our vote for the winner of its respective category.

The only stipulation in the Golden Zonkies is that any point, a wild card can be suggested by one of the hosts if majority vote dictates that another nomination is more deserving of the award instead of the choices presently casted, but weirdly enough—it didn't happen this year....imagine that.

If you’ve got an issue with the Golden Zonkies and how it was conducted then just remember the only other rule; it’s our God Damn show and opinion anyway, so keep that in mind when you send us whatever discourse you have with our decisions after the show by doing the following:
