My wife, Jess, kinda hates videogames. And not just for the popular reasons (blowing humans apart, women crafted for the male gaze, and reward-loops that incite addiction). She just doesn’t like games that evoke stress. So, she doesn’t play too many of them.
The Substance TV crew is going to be rolling deep and shallow at PAX Prime 2013 8/30 through 9/2. This is also our first year attending the expo as press which means we’ll have a ton of written and video coverage this entire week into next. And for those heading to PAX, make sure to drop us a line on Twitter (@substancetv), Facebook (facebook.com/stvsocial), and of course our YouTube page.
See you there!
