Montreal Comiccon 2017 happened this past weekend. As I sorted things out after a very hectic and fun weekend, I kicked off the Montreal Comiccon recap with my shopping haul yesterday. You can check it out HERE if you missed it.
This year’s Montreal Comiccon is very special. Why? I actually stopped postponing and put aside my worry of rejection and applied for media pass for Game Warp Podcast and we got it. Game Warp and also my own first show going as Media. I have no idea how hard it is to get into Montreal Comiccon but regardless, I find that an achievement regardless. Its nice to see that we can take Game Warp Podcast and go out and cover the gaming portion of the show.
If you don’t follow That Moment In, here is the recap of Day 1 and Day 2 of Montreal Comiccon. It is very gaming heavy as I spent Day 1 chatting with game developers and trying out their games and Day 2 was spent in and out of gaming panels as well as checking out the Triple A Studio booths and their games.
However, Montreal Comiccon is more than just panels and games. It is a fan expo and there was all sorts of cool stuff everything. The most awesome thing was following the news of the actual size replica of Optimus Prime truck literally rolling into town to the showfloor and its great to finally find it right next to the autographs section, just like its listed as a guest.
Of course, there was Batmobile and Knight Rider and all sorts of other cars hanging out in different booths. There was even a charity photo op by an artist who made a Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon. It looked fantastic but no pictures unless you wanted a picture with it. I love Toothless but I also had to get somewhere by the time I found it so didn’t end up not being able to show that off at all.
Aside from that, its all about the awesome cosplay everything. Day 1 found these cosplays that stood out to me:
I honestly didn’t have too much time on Day 1 as I was frantically trying to check out as many games in the Indie Game Zone as possible. It was a rather successful to me. With that said, it left me time to fight with the crowd on Saturday in between panels to catch more pictures of cosplayers and their many different creative outfits.
Cruella de Vil & Evil Queen
Beauty & the Beast & Jack Sparrow
There’s a ton to do at Montreal Comiccon all the time and this year, the guests were pretty impressive. Between walking through the Artist Alley and vendors to find a Pikachu for my friend’s toddler. I tried keep it mostly about gaming as I’m there as media for that. Its kind of different. I’m sure anyone who does media at events might feel the same way. Its still a ton of fun but there’s also that responsibility that I know I’ll have to report on it so there’s this extra push and motivation to make sure I get to panels and cover the things that would match up with what we represent which is games since I’m there for Game Warp Podcast.
It was a great weekend! Tons of fun!
It took Sunday to recuperate but totally worth every minute of it! 🙂

Part 2 of E3 Impressions are here!
This time, we talk about the last three conferences. Not a lot of people have covered the PC Gaming Show but as I am the independent games fanatic, it felt like one that I had to check out and it was well worth it to see some of the smaller games getting highlighted with a little more details from the developers themselves. In this episode, we talk about the PC Gaming Show, Playstation and we wrap up with the Nintendo Spotlight event.
Before we wrap up the episode, we discuss whether the new upcoming Nintendo Switch games has made us want to pick up the new console and which conference appealed to us the most?

The new episode of Game Warp Podcast is here!
Its been a crazy run with E3, the Top 10 lists and finally, our wrap-up of the conference. This year, we split it into two parts. The first covers the impressions of Electronic Arts, Microsoft, Bethesda and Ubisoft’s conferences. We talk about the games that caught our eye and also Xbox One X and what it means to a current Xbox owner and a non-Xbox owner. Does it change our views? Would we get one now that its the “most powerful” console available.
Sit back, relax and join us while watching some screenshots and trailers as we discuss these first four conferences.
Thanks for watching! 🙂

We appreciate it so much!
As some of you know, I’m in love with independent games. In fact, I’m pretty much really supportive of the independent scene regardless of movies or authors. There’s so much hidden talent there and what someone can create out of passion and creativity (just like us bloggers here) are great. We should help each other out and hope that we all get that big break. One really great thing right now is to see that although still very tough, the indie scene can all have their chances and E3 2017 showed off a good amount of smaller games.
Over at Game Warp, we sifted through the trailers and these are our Top 10 Independent Games from E3 2017.

What games made your indie games list this year?
E3 2017 has ended. The conferences feels like they were so far away because of all the trailers that has been flooding the internet along with the news. Of course, this year, in our second year of operation, we had better planned for it. Soon to realize that, at least for myself, that you don’t exactly plan for this, you just make time and see what happens. However, as we work out our longer E3 impressions discussion, we both go in our own domains of mainstream and indie games and list our top 10 upcoming games that impressed us.
Up first, is our resident retro and Mainstream connoisseur, Elwood with his Top 10. Of course, That Moment In has the write-up if you’d like to read some more on his thoughts. However, this is a nice countdown video. Hope you enjoy!
