PAX East 2014: Hands on with Wolfenstein: The New Order – Zukünftige Spiel des Jahres

It’s 7 at night and the cold, windy streets of Downtown south Boston are unusually empty. While I’d been used to seeing blue behemoth-clad lanyards dangling around everyone’s neck, this area was different… it was more, normal. Not a single gamer was in site as LevelSave editor Matt Curione and I strolled in to Boston’s Royale Nightclub for Neumond Recording’s Pop Muzik Showcase. Something is weird...[Read More]
