We made a trio of Glads Go for Taipei Game Show 2018! Check it out!
During the recently concluded Taipei Game Show (TPGS), representatives from Taipei Computer Association (TCA) and Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association (CESA) signed a memorandum in order to forge a partnership between the two biggest game shows in Asia, Taipei Game Show and Tokyo Game Show (TGS).
Taipei Game Show 2018 was absolutely massive in terms of size and scope! Every corner of the World Trade Center Taipei was covered with cool gaming things to see and experience. Here are some of the coolest booths at the show floor and what you could do at them!
Taipei Game Show 2018 just happened and the Geekend Gladiators were on-hand to experience this amazing spectacle of gaming! Here are the best photos we took at the show!
We’ve joined up with a bunch of awesome friends in the Geek Media to form the Geek Collective! We’re going to celebrate this momentous occasion by covering Taipei Game Show 2018 AND treating all our readers with an Awesome Merch Giveaway from the Show floor!

It has grown considerably from last year in terms of both number participating countries and number of participating games. A total of 86 titles from 21 countries joined this year’s contest and a total 22 titles have made it to the final round of selection. The finalists have been selected from across four major platforms: PC, console, mobile, and VR.

The awards are divided into eight categories: Best Narration, Best Audio, Best Visual Art, Best Game Design, Best Innovation, Best VR Game, Best Mobile Game, and IGA Grand Prix. The winners will be judged based on game design, story & plot, visual art,music & sound effects, and innovative game play.

Taipei Game Show 2018 is just around the corner and we sat down with their contingent at ESGS 2017 to talk about: What we can expect in the upcoming Taipei Game Show 2018; What they think about the gaming and game development culture in the Philippines; and what their own gaming culture is like in Taiwan.
Heyoooo! In this week’s episode of In the Car After Raffy and Denise go #AllIn with Justice League!
But first, they do a little catch-up with all the awesome stuff they got into this crazy long
weekend Geekend! You’ll hear all about Denise’s Great Taipei Ticket Odyssey and all the last-minute shenanigans she went through for her trip; Raffy’s first Komikon experience selling art; and the Mythical Prince Adam Satyr riding a Centaur Drake.
