Pax Melbourne 2016

So its another year at Pax and the show is changing it’s bigger than ever and its not just about the game dev’s and table top gamers the hardware guys re getting into it and the retail shops have the biggest booths I don’t know if we need or even want retail shops like Harvey Norman at Pax and the price slashing PC parts shops like MSY are taking up space that I would like see game developers fill. I get that they pay to be here but its something I don’t think people need to pay to see. if you want to see what Harvey Norman has walk into any shop its free! Having some of the hardware guys showing off some of their new gaming kit like Kingston Tech is a step in the right direction. Kingston KBThis is the star of the show for me right now as far as hardware is the HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard I will talk more about it later.

ThermaltakeTieThermaltake have a booth full of case mods and the star of the show is this Darth Vader TIE Fighter (Advanced TIE Fighter) not a lot of new stuff to show off but its good to see them supporting the modding community in Australia. still lots to see so I’m off to clock up another 8k steps! At this rate I will not have to workout for a week.. ( for that to be true I need 58k steps to work off my fat ass) 😉


I am a massive Star Wars fan and even have the Rebel logo tattooed on my right arm and even have two children named after influential female Star Wars characters from the expanded universe! Over the last few years I have played several different MMOs trying to fill the void that was created by my first experience with a Star Wars MMO world in Sony’s Star Wars Galaxies. I was told about SWTOR 2003 at E3 by a Lucasfilm representative who had intervened in a conversation about the issues that Sony was having with the Star Wars franchise. So to say that I had been waiting for STWOR for a while is an understatement! Playing SWTOR and Elite Dangerous most of the time with the odd FPS to mix it up.
