PAX Aus – Melbourne 2019

I only realised the other day that we’ve attended SIX PAX Aus events over the years. Can’t believe it’s been that many. This year’s event was no disappointment with lots of big titles on show like Pokemon Sword and Shield and Final Fantasy VII Remake (alas, lines were too long to try these out for ourselves). We got a chance to try out the Nintendo Switch Lite (it’s actually physically lighter than a Switch along with being light on features) as well as see a live presentation of Cyberpunk 2077 – got a free shirt out of it too!

Of course, where we spent a lot of our time was in the PAX Rising section with a variety of new titles to see and try out. Particular favourites were Unpacking and Necrobarista.

Below are a few select photos from the event.
