In less than two weeks’ time, thousands of geeks, nerds, cosplayers and gamers will descend upon the Victoria Conference Centre in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia. That’s right. GottaCon 2015 is right around the corner and MEGATechNews will be there in full force to support the local gaming community.

We had a lot of fun at GottaCon 2014 and this year’s event stands to be even bigger and badder than ever. The all-weekend event is scheduled to tournaments and casual play for a number of gaming genres, including the expansive PC LAN gaming area, console games, tabletop RPGs, board games, miniature games and more. GottaCon 2015 will also feature musicals, expert panels, and special guests like theatre troupe The Geekenders.

All said, there are over 400 events scheduled for the weekend of February 27 to March 1 with over $30,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs in such games as League of Legends, Magic: The Gathering, Warmachine, Star Wars X-Wing, Titanfall and Ultra Street Fighter IV.

MEGATechNews will be hanging out with our friends at Futurelooks showing off some awesome gear from Creative, In Win, and be quiet!. We’re also doing a couple of cool PC DIY discussion panels with terrific industry guests with great insight into how to build your own gaming rig.
