Our good friends at Gamestop (shout out to the Beach and Hodges location in Jacksonville!) are coming through and supporting the gamers by setting up at GAAM! They’ll be assisting with Mario Kart 8 stations…which will be done GAAM style! We’ll revealing exactly what that means soon…but expect to play Mario Kart like you never have before! 😀

So Preben Olsen, is not only tall, but he’s a cool guy. His bar is a cool part of town. He owns a bar called Aardwolf (cool). He makes local brews (super cool). And he likes video games (super super cool).
He’s also sooooo cool, that he’s contributing some of his cool beer to GAAM attendees! That’s the really really good stuff a lot of you got to drink for free with your tickets at the last show!
So thank you, brewers of Aardwolf, for creating such amazing beer in Jacksonville, and thank you even more, for contributing it to the gaming community and GAAM! Cheers!
It’s not often that we find a reason to give Mega Man vodka. However, it’s pretty often that the rest of the GAAM team drinks vodka. check our bar tabs. There’s almost always a ton of Gatorade’s ( flavored vodka, water, and a splash of sour mix) on our tabs!
So having Ivana Bitch Vodka as the featured vodka of GAAM is a dream come true! It’s fun to say, is great for making gatorades (and other specialty gaming drinks that will be at GAAM), and Mega Man thinks it’s megariffic. PEW PEW PEW!
So, we met Fuzion Vapor almost a year ago, and we just gotta say, it’s so rare to meet a company this cool and this real.
They have consistently supported us and the gamers (they’re pretty legit gamers themselves), they’re pioneers for everybody that vapes, and they contribute to multiple charities every year. Why? Because they’re damn good guys, that’s why. And that’s why the GAAM is team is happy and proud to say that Fuzion Vapor is not only the sponsor, but the TITLE SPONSOR for GAAM! So VAPE ON! 😀
You can see the proof of their title sponsorship all over the place. You can see the proof of their funk below (or on facebook).
Typically GAAM focus more on video games. If it’s not video game related…we won’t even let it in. But even if this card game from Passion Project didn’t have any video game inspiration, (which it has boatloads of!) we’d still let it in! It just looks that damn cool! 😀
Everybody, be sure to give a great big welcome to Orlando Indie Game Developer, Astro Crow!
Astro Crow will be in the Indie Games section of GAAM, showing off “The Last Ace of Space” and “Farty Pig”! That’s right, “Farty Pig”. We really don’t know how to write about that.
Anyways, here’s a quick trailer for their game, “The Last Ace of Space”. We can’t wait to try it first hand!
Remember that feeling you used to get when you got a game back in the day? You’d actually have an instruction booklet…maybe some type of magical map, a poster, some other goodies…it’s was awesome! It was more than just the game…it was the entire product that made the experience.
The guys at indiebox are trying to bring that magic back, through indie gaming! Check them out, and get some indie boxing magic delivered to your door every month. 🙂
