Full List of YouTube and Twitch Guests

Gaming media have exploded. YouTube has become a haven for gaming celebrities, and for many people, Twitch has essentially replaced TV itself. It would be crazy not to include this massive part of gaming culture in our event. And we’re not crazy.

EGLX will be graced by many of the brightest stars from both YouTube and Twitch. They’ll share their experiences, sign autographs, and just generally be fun people in your presence. Stop by throughout the weekend for a chance to meet only the coolest of internet celebrities.

50?! That’s way too many! These arcade cabinets will be littered all throughout the venue. You’ll never be more than a few feet away from some of the greatest classics in video game history. For a full list, please direct your eyes to a few pixels below these pixels:

Many of us fondly recall our first encounter with a video game. Maybe it was a birthday present, or someone left their NES sitting out at a holiday party, but one thing was for sure: we were hooked. The EGLX Family Zone is designed to help parents and kids connect over their shared love of gaming. (Also, there are chairs. You can sit down here.)

The Family Zone is proud to support three great causes: Sick Kids Foundation, Extra Life, and Chai Lifeline Canada. We deeply respect their dedication and lifesaving work.

 

So, what can families and their kids participate in? Here are five of the activities in the Family Zone, the first 3 being run by Brick Works Academy:

  1. Minecraft Build-a-thon: 10 PCs, 30-minute competitions to win free swag. Get creative!
  2. Augmented Reality Digital Sandbox: Build with real sand and watch digital creations come to life.
  3. LEGO Robotics: Build LEGO robots, attach motors, and go nuts.
  4. Battle Sports presents: Nerf Archery! Both 1-on-1 and team Nerf battles.
  5. Face Painting and Body Art: Bring a picture, become a gaming hero for the day! (Paint may not contain actual superpowers.)

Note: All registration for Minecraft will be on-site during EGLX.

It’s a competition to build the most creative, most skillfully crafted, and most engaging world your brain can imagine. Minecraft is part of the EGLX Family Zone, a fun and safe area reserved for kids aged 12 and under and their accompanying parents or guardians. But it can also be found in the main competitions for teens.

Brick Works Academy will be hosting Minecraft at EGLX! Brick Works is dedicated to educating children in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math through hands-on play. Minecraft Computer Camp, LEGO Robotics and Pokemon Designer are just a few of their award-winning camps. We trust in their expertise and charisma to make our Minecraft Build-a-thon an unforgettable event for kids and parents alike.

Build your own representation of a special theme, or build something unique that will amaze the audience (and the judges). Take your time, or create a whole world as fast as you can. There are lots of different ways to play, so keep watching this page for updates!

What happens if you take the electricity away from video games? Well, you get video games that don’t turn on. But that’s boring, so come to our board games section instead!

We’ll have a huge selection of tabletop games to choose from. Coming soon: details about our partners, the Toronto Tabletop Titans (read: stores)!

Full List of Vendors and Exhibitors

Amidst the sea of positive feedback from EGL in May 2015 was one repeated sentiment: “needs more vendors.” Well, we listened.

EGLX will be stacked with shopping options for new and old video games, elaborate artwork, gaming merch, unique clothing, and everything else you love to exchange for money.

There’s a huge variety of stuff to do at EGLX, but we’ll never forget our roots: good, old-fashioned console video games.

The Free Play area is presented by Game On Entertainment Services, well-known for their video game DJ services and a common fixture at gaming events and conventions around Ontario (including the original EGL).

Check out our Free Play section all weekend for some Mario Kart 8, Duck Hunt, Just Dance, and tons of Star Wars games, to name just a few!
