PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds stations dominate the Xbox booth at PAX East. Behind that, the PlayStation booth opted to front-load Detroit: Become Human, with a couple of setups for upcoming titles like Soulcalibur VI and Yakuza 6 buried in the middle rows. Nintendo’s big draw is the Wolfenstein II Switch port demo.

Flinthook, a beautiful and fast-paced action game built around a grappling hook, was my favorite game at PAX East last week. It only took a few moments before I was whipping around the room and collecting treasure. There’s no release date or platforms yet, but I’m already anxious.
