Dreamhack Montreal 2017 #DHMTL17

You can see a more detailed coverage over at That Moment In from Day 1 and Day 2 HERE & HERE.

DreamHack Montreal 2017 happened over the last weekend from Friday (September 8) to Sunday (September 10). The event has grown a lot with much more gaming tech companies and sponsors. The crowd definitely came in mass on Saturday and rightfully so because that was the day with some great esport matches. Here’s a video with some pictures and vids from the cosplay competition.

Hope you enjoyed it!

Are you into esports? If not, do you play games like CS:GO, Hearthstone or Street Fighter V? Maybe Smash Bros or Starcraft 2?

I’m honestly more of a solo player. Team or PvP games take much more strategy than I would like to invest in. However, DreamHack did ignite the curiousity to check out Hearthstone and so far, I might like it more than Elder Scroll Legend. However, I haven’t gotten far enough in Hearthstone to feel a ton more challenge.

Overall, DreamHack was really fun. It turned out to be a really busy Saturday going from one thing to the next. I did wish the Indie Game Zone would have had more games.

Podcast: Game Warp Reviews Firewatch (2016)

Game Warp’s August featured game was Campo Santo Game’s debut title, Firewatch.

Firewatch is a first person mystery adventure set in the forests of Wyoming. We play Henry, a man who has suffered emotionally due to personal issues and has taken up a job as a summer ranger to help look out and prevent fires while maintaining the safety in the forest to hopefully forget about his problems. However, things take a mysterious turn when  certain events start happening. With the help of fellow lookout companion, Delilah via their walkie-talkie, they get through the summer. Maps, hiking and a few story arc is what Firewatch is all about. Its been highly praised last year and has been nominated and received many awards.

Here’s our thoughts and whether it met our expectations!

That’s it for this episode! Hope you enjoyed!

Game Warp Podcast: Ori and the Blind Forest Review

July’s featured game is Moon Studio’s Ori and the Blind Forest, a game with so much talk even though it was released back in 2015. Will it live up to its hype? You will see as we discuss the game mechanics, how it runs as a Metroidvania and what we love and what comes up short. Ori and the Blind Forest is a visual feast, there is no doubt about that just from any screenshots you see but is it going to be style over substance?

Thanks for watching!

Montreal Comiccon 2017: Cosplay & More!

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.

Montreal Comiccon

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.

Optimus Prime

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.

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! 🙂
