Last year, the organizers of the Toronto Comics Arts Festival (TCAF) began carving out a space for video games with the inaugural Comics vs. Games display. It went so well that they’re continuing the trend in 2013, filling out Comics vs. Games 2 with new panels, new collaborations, and – perhaps most importantly – a new location for the inaugural Bit Bazaar.
There's no wrong way to do PAX. Dork Shelfer Wesley Fok details how he did it his way at Penny Arcade's gaming wonderland in Boston.
These days, most games billed as Metroidvania don’t live up to the moniker. Enter Guacamelee!, an excellent Mexican-themed brawler that oozes 2D authenticity. The latest offering from Toronto’s DrinkBox Studios maximizes the Metroidvania concept with tight combat, intricate level design, and a colourful aesthetic that reminds players that more is not necessarily better.
And now, all the game news that’s fit to print. IGF announces finalists, Nvidia debuts a handheld device, Sony clamps down on used games, Zynga gets a TV show, THQ continues to have a hard time even in bankruptcy, and Toronto reveals itself as Raccoon City!
For DrinkBox Studios co-founder Chris Harvey, a third-round takedown may be just around the corner with Guacamelee!
Heading to Toronto's Gamercamp this weekend? Take a look at some of the incredible games from around that world that will be playable at this weekend's event.
