So getting back from the D.I.C.E Awards a little over a week ago i decided it may be a good idea to post this little recap and give a little bit of an insight on some of the plans and events we may attend this year.
The D.I.C.E awards were held in Las Vegas, around the corner from where the very first Minecon was hosted. Supposedly this was the 16th annual award show, but everyone we talked to had only just heard of them within a few weeks of being there.... The event itself was defiantly something different for us. Going from a very social and lax event like PAX to an event where you are expected to "look your best" and sit in an area filled with nothing but game industry people is quite the shift. All in all seeing the people that create or voice some of your favorite video game characters made it a good experience, something different but welcomed as getting to meet a lot of industry people doesn't happen very often.
Last year we attended a fair share of events throughout the year so i figured because we get asked if we are visiting "this place or that place" i'll throw out some early plans. Last year we attended PAX East & Prime, E3, Comic Con, Gamescom and RTX. There may be some in between but with those alone there was a lot of travel involved throughout the year. Those events also produced a good set of content that went up on TheCreatureHub or TheCreatures Facebook page around the time of the event so check those out if you haven't already.
This year, as of this writing we may be looking at somewhat of a similar schedule depending on tickets, again none of these are set in stone due to being so early in the year. They are just events that have been talked about.
Possible UK Event (Eurogamer?)
PAX East - A few Creatures already have tickets, likely not everyone will make it.
Minecon (If they do another, maybe)
Comic Con tickets sold like crazy so it may be unlikely this year
As you can see, we have quite the plate of events which contains much travel. I'm sure we will give updates if we secure spots at the events so be sure to listen in on CT but for the sake of those asking, these are what we are looking into.
Thanks for reading!
