Daniela’s CES 2016 wrap up!

CES logoCES kicks off every new year with the promise of new innovations and upgrades to existing consumer hardware. This year seemed to be the year for the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as the year to get your kids into programming. iLuv showed us how you can easily make a morning better with just a few connected products while the folks working on the upcoming title Moving Hazard show us that the zombie apocalypse can be tons of fun. Bartesian showed us how easy it can be to create quality drinks at home and, of course, Razer, SteelSeries, and MadCatz gave us a sneak peek at their gaming hardware.

Let’s travel back to CES 2016 and check out my highlights:

Pax Prime 2014 Rewind

Sentris logoOut of all the geeky conventions I cover for Royal Flush Magazine, it’s Pax that I truly look forward to every year. Whether it’s East or Prime, Pax is one of the few conventions that centers around indie gaming and its fans. Today, I get to share a couple of interviews I did while attending Pax Prime in Seattle a couple of months back.  We learned about game developers’ inspirations, their struggles, as well as how they are keeping their fans engaged. We even delved into what aspiring game developers can do to keep focused and how important Kickstarter could be towards finding funding for your project.  Sentris and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime are both equally wonderful and worth checking out!
