The full schedule for PAX Australia 2018 is now live

Ahead of next month's PAX Australia 2018, a full schedule for the three-day event has been let loose onto the internet.

“We’re just a few weeks away from PAX Aus 2018, and it’s going to be a gargantuan show,” said Luke Lancaster, content manager, PAX Aus.

“I’m not sure what the collective noun for panels is, but we’ll need to use it four or five times. The exhibitor lineup will test the structural integrity of the MCEC. It will be like staring into the sun, except you can for real do it at PAX.”

Directly compared to previous years, PAX Aus 2018 will feature its biggest schedule of panels yet. The event will boast more than 125 sessions, including a keynote by Rhianna Pratchett.

PC World Australia will be in attendance. Not just to cover the show, but also to speak on two panels.

The first panel, locked in for 10:30AM on the Friday in the Galah theatre, is entitled Overwatchiest Home Videos 2018. A full description of the panel is as follows:

"We’re all heroes now. With the inaugural season of the Overwatch League behind us and the Overwatch World Finals looming, join a of four Australian Overwatch fans who always stay on the payload and never insta-pick Hanzo. We’ll talk through some of our favorite clutch moments from the professional scene, share our best personal Play-Of-The-Games and just get really amped up about the future of Overwatch esports."

IGN's Dan Crowd, The AU Review's David Smith and freelancer Olivia Harris will also be speaking on this panel. If you're a fan of Overwatch, esports or Overwatch esports, please come along and say hello.

The second panel PC World Australia will be featured on is Are the Console Wars Still Relevant? The official description is as follows:

"Let’s face it; for as long as there have been consoles, there have been sides. The Genesis is better than the SNES. The N64 is better than the PS1. The Xbox was better than the PS2. But in a modern age of technology where graphical capabilities are plateauing and gimmicks are the way to go, is it really worth pitting console against console? And where does the PC landscape fit? Join us for a hearty debate as we seek truth in this crazy, chaotic world of games."

I'll be speaking alongside ReckonerAU editor Raj Deut, Press Start Australia editor Shannon Grixti and contributors Ewan Roxburgh and Matt Zimmari.

Are the Console Wars Still Relevant? will take place at 6:30PM on the Friday in the Ibis Theatre.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
