Matthew Hayes attended PAX with a press pass and had some great meetings with Nintendo and more. He fills us in on a few gems that you might not know about and should keep an eye on. He also got to play Mario Kart with the duo from Nintendo Minute.
Mathew is a huge fan of Space, Strategy, and Shadowrun (Genesis version is #1). When it comes to games and films, he’d much rather experience a 10/10 classic from yesteryear than a 6/10 modern blandfest. He does feel we’re living in a gaming golden age with the power of indie developers at an all-time high, but wishes AAA publishers would take more risks. Mat believes it’s only a matter of time before the pendulum swings the other way and new ideas take their rightful place above reboots.
