Rey and I are back after a lightning-quick but productive trip to PAX East. We didn’t have a lot of time to cruise the floor (though the SOCOM 4 booth was packed with intimidating lines). On the plus side, we met up with Eitan Gilnert of Fire Hose Games, creators of the chaotic building-brawler Slam Bolt Scrappers. We also grilled Irrational Games Creative Director Ken Levine about the PS3 version of BioShock Infinite, as well as details about his geeky background. Expect to see Rey‘s epic video treatment soon. Take my word for it: these are two interviews you won’t want to miss.
