Boogio developed by Reflx Labs and Qi2, and you can wear it in your shoes with no added weight. These things are efficient! They are a sticker with pressure sensors, accelerometer, and soon will include gyroscopes, all of this on the bottom of your insole. While I find the technology fascinating in itself and it's capacity, what I really find sexy is the potential for gaming, health, and general computing uses, particularly in tandem with Oculus Rift.

When I was a kid, the most terrifying thing I could imagine was the creature from Alien. I was probably too young to watch Alien the first time I saw it, in fact, I'm certain of it. Since then, movie monsters have fascinated me, though none have ever come close to topping the drone. Later Alien films, while good, just haven't had the same atmosphere. When I heard about Alien Isolation and what the Creative Assembly were attempting I couldn't wait to get my hands on the game. Naturally, PAX afforded me just such an opportunity.

While at PAX I swung by Ubisoft's booth to take a look at Far Cry 4. As a big fan of the series - which starts with Far Cry 2 as far as I'm concerned- it was one of the games I was most excited to see. The emails I had exchanged prior to PAX made mention of getting my hands on the new Shangri-La mode, the built in Blood Dragon-esque experience. Unfortunately, it was decided that they weren't quite ready to show it at PAX, and it was pulled. I did get to play a bit of the E3 demo and try my hand at a small mission in a variety of ways.

From big franchise games like Shadow of Mordor to indie card game RESISTOR_, we covered a lot of ground this year and got our hands on a lot of interesting games. You'll hear more about those games in the coming days. For now, I'll leave you with a few choice highlights.

Taking all these factors into account, I can think of no better time than now to reach into the Somnambuant Archives. This post was written on the eve of last year's PAX, but the advice is still good for any new or experienced attendee. Enjoy the article and stay tuned to our twitter feed during the next few days, as we'll be doing our best to keep you updated with the latest news from PAX 2014.
