Ubisoft E3 2017 Showcase

E3 2017 has been a series of highs and lows, and now Ubisoft is set to take the stage. We've already seen a couple of their titles revealed including the official trailer for the pre-E3 leak of Assassin's Creed: Origins. 

Bethesda E3 2017 Showcase

Leading up to E3 2017 there were a couple of rumors that had been swirling around. A few have already been confirmed, thanks to the EA and Microsoft pressers that happened yesterday and earlier today respectively, now the biggest question of "is it true?" is pointed on Bethesda as they wind up for their late-night event. 

Microsoft (Presumably) Scorpio Focused E3 2017 Brief

The the second (unofficial) day of E3 has begun and today we have two new press conferences to get through. First, and arguably most important, is the Microsoft conference, which is planned to run over its 90-minute time slot today. The biggest piece of the conference is sure to be the official reveal of whatever "Scorpio's" real name is as well as some of the accompanying software. 

EA Play Kicks off E3 2017

Kicking off this year's E3 presentations will be an early entry from video game publishing/developing giant Electronic Arts. We've seen some of what they have to offer already with early trailers for Battlefront 2 and Need for Speed: Payback, but expect plenty of other titles to highlight the show this year as well. 

Easy money will be on franchise follow-ups for their sports titles including Madden, NHL, and FIFA but we can probably expect that EA has a couple of new titles planned for this year's show as well. 

NALCS Spring Split Finals in Vancouver - Day 1

A few months back, Riot Games eSports division announced that the North American branch of the League of Legends Championship Series (NALCS) was going to be coming to our own backyard: Vancouver! As “seasoned professionals” of the eSports circuit it was something we immediately set in our schedule.

Red Bull Proving Grounds Comes to Vancouver

 This past weekend the FGC eSports scene came down to Vancouver to find the best of the best in the GVRD, it was an open tournament that provided those in the area the opportunity to show off what Vancouver has to offer eSports and provide a fun environment for fans of the fighting genre to hang out, meet up with friends old and new and show off what they can do.

Square Enix Vancouver Showcase

This past week we had the opportunity to head down to a local event put on by the PR team behind all Square Enix’s recent and upcoming releases. We only had a short time to play through everything (2 hours) but we went hands-on with as much as humanly possible!

Below are some shots of the event, along with thoughts (previews) of the titles that were available to us and we had the most time (and fun!) with:

Flame x Blaze (MOBA)

Destiny 2 CE Includes Swag you Might Actually Use

This week Bungie officially lift the lid on the release of Destiny 2. It started with a logo, then continued with a cute little video showing off Cayde in the smoking ruination of The Last City, and today concluded with the full reveal/announcement of the forthcoming sequel release to the epic grind fest.

The Nintendo Switch’s Revitalization of Social Gaming

A couple of days ago, we finally received information regarding the launch of the Switch, including the official date, the price, and details on how the console (and its corresponding controllers the "Joy Cons") would function. Since then there's been all matter of discussion regarding Nintendo's statement on the future of gaming; some see it as a giant leap forward, others as a step backward, and most just see it as far too costly a product with far too few titles at launch.

Fan Expo Vancouver 2016 - Final Thoughts

This past weekend Vancouver played host to the return of the local version of Fan Expo. The show represents, in my opinion, the biggest and most established convention that Vancouver must offer its fandom. There may be shows that are of a larger scale, or perhaps even offer a better representation of their individual fanbases, but Fan Expo seems to be the most recognized and draws in some of the biggest celebrity guest stars that our town sees on an annual basis.
