Fan Expo is over for another year and if you've been following the coverage or were lucky enough to attend in person (because you weren't at that other gaming show this weekend) you'll probably agree this may have been the best year yet. The show floor was huge and the crowds were enormous but I'll give props to the organizers that everything seemed to go very smoothly and I'm happy to say none of us got locked out by the fire marshall this time and it only took me 10 minutes to get my family in versus almost three hours last year.

As our friends over at Toronto Thumbs point out, the gaming presence at the show was far more impressive than previous years with huge booths by Ubisoft, Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo and more. And if Uncharted 3 or Assassings Creed: Revelations aren't your thing, Philippe also found some retro gaming goodness in one of the side rooms and caught up on some original Lemmings on an Amiga.

If you couldn't make it to the show we've got a short video (YouTube or Facebook) as well as some pics showing our booth and the awesome array of cosplay at the show. Britt was also working on a new painting demo (this time with full video capture) that we'll be posting soon and we gave a handful of interviews during the show which I'll post here as they come in.

Update #1: Weird Review just posted their coverage of Fan Expo along with a fairly detailed walkthough of Hegemony hosted by Rick.

Update #2: Our friends at Two Guys Talking just posted their interview with me from Fan Expo and if you missed it before the show, they also have a review posted on the original game.

Philippe also gave an interview during the show but unfortunately we didn't catch who they were so if anybody spots it on the web let us know and we'll get it posted. In somewhat unrelated news, the Syndey Morning Herald just posted a new review of what they call "... one of the neatest little strategy games to be released in the last 12 months."
