Games are Weird, PAX Aus and Lance Reddick Passes


Games are Weird.


Peppa Pig’s latest video game World Adventures has a bizarre memorial to the departed monarch Queen Lizzy.  Why is the dead queen jumping in muddy puddles with small children? Why is she a human talking to a talking pig? Why is there such an abrupt tonal shift from this to the in memoriam, which includes Peppa Pig herself in the photo? Is Peppa Pig super sad that her BFF The Queen kicked the bucket?  The internet seems baffled by this inclusion.


PAX Australia is the biggest gaming convention in Australia and is happening from the 6th to the 8th of October 2023 in Melbourne and tickets are on sale now!  It’s the 10th anniversary of PAX Aus so if that sounds like something you want to get in on, a limited amount of early bird tickets are available now.


Lance Reddick Passes

And sadly Lance Reddick passed away on March 17 from natural causes at the age of 60.  Known and loved for his acting and video game voicing, appearing in Horizon Zero Dawn, Payday 2, Quantum Break, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, an unreleased Hellboy game and maybe his most well known role, Commander Zavala from Destiny.
