The Ocean Resorts Casino in Atlantic City hosted Gameacon 2018 for the first time, after a few years at another AC resort. Between October 19-21 Gameacon attracted to the Jersey Shore a mix of gaming enthusiasts, indie developers, vendors, interactive game providers and more! The convention floor was shared by four different attractions: The gaming “arena”, the VR games, the indie developers and the vendors.
On my Atlantic City trip yesterday, I also visited the Garden State Beer Company, which is on the White Horse Pike just off the Parkway exit 40. So it’s a convenient stop when you’re going in or out of AC. I was impressed by the size of the tasting room, which is huge, maybe one of the largest I’ve seen at a New Jersey microbrewery.
This weekend I decided to go further down South and explore more Jersey Shore breweries. On a trip to Atlantic City, I found the Hidden Sands Brewing Co which is indeed kind of hidden in Egg Harbor, but it’s right off exit 37 on the Parkway or a very small detour if you’re heading back on the AC Expressway. Hidden Sands has a nice tasting room, cozy and not too big, a friendly bar area with a TV to watch your favorite game.
Gameacon is a rather new convention in Atlantic City, New Jersey celebrating video gaming and fan culture with a special emphasis on independent game development. It will feature the newest gaming technology, video and tabletop games for professionals and fans. It opens October 19, 2018 with an industry-only day, and it’s open to the public on October 20 and 21, all at the Ocean Resort Casino. Don’t miss the VR experience, laser tag, cosplay and Fortnite tournament!
The summer 2016 brings a lot of musical performances at the Jersey Shore. Here are the best concerts in Asbury Park, Atlantic City, Ocean City or Wildwood, including Whitesnake, Pat Benetar, Josh Groban, Sugar Ray, Deftones, UB 40, Lady Antebellum and more.
