Canada's largest video gaming expo returns this weekend

March 02, 2018 1 min read

You're invited to join Destructoid for an amazing weekend at EGLX March 9th-11th at The International Centre, Mississauga. This a shameless shill for our parent company and the closest thing to bringing you a full-on Destructoid convention overrun by cat girls (soon), but it's legit. Nintendo, Microsoft, Blizzard, WB, MSI and others will be there.

I guess PlayStation doesn't think Canadians like video games, so we're just going to have fun without you. Nya. There's also two Destructoid parties this year.

On the floor we'll have tons of Switch games including Pokkén Tournament DX, VR experiences and games, massive esports tournaments and a free to play retro-themed arcade. We have cosplay, a not-to-be-missed scavenger hunt inspired by Ready Player One, Nerf battles and even an all-day Minecraft build contest. We'll also have artist booths and stuff for your whining smaller clones in the kid's area. Take a look!
