As GameX enters its second year of providing the Greater Toronto Area with an interactive retro-gaming experience, we wanted to thank everyone that helped make our first year such a great success.
Thanks to your support, we are able to bring new and exciting experiences for our second year.
For those who grew up gaming and watching cable TV in the 90s, Nicholas Picholas had us all wishing we could arm ourselves with an N64 controller and take on all challengers in order to win some sweet prizes.
Once a host on the fabled “Video and Arcade Top 10” show that aired on YTV, Nicholas can now be heard as the morning show host on KISS 98.5 in Buffalo.
Be sure to register for our video game tournaments as Nick will take on hosting duties of our Super Smash Brothers Melee finale match!
This introductory paragraph is brought to you by Hubba Bubba .. no, it’s not .. as much as we wish it was.
In all seriousness though, Wink Yahoo and Uh Oh were a childhood staple for many of us in our earlier years. Who didn’t love seeing other kids getting “slimed” or thrown into a kiddie pool filled with putrid liquids?!?
Scott has made a successful transition from host to actor, voice artist and healer!
Check out Scott’s website here to see what he’s up to!
Think you’ve got what it takes? Then you’d better be signing up for both our Super Smash Brothers Melee and Mario Kart 64 tournaments and put your skills to the test.
Our bracket system will randomly pair contestants against eachother in elimination style matches. Winner of each match will move on to the next bracket and so on and so forth until we reach the finale.
Nicholas Picholas will then take over as Host of the finale to determine who takes home the Nintendo Switch along with the title of GameX 2.0 King.
Super Smash Brothers Melee
This game is pretty much mandatory in any competitive gaming tournament. We will have five 1 v 1 games running simultaneously of five lives no items. Beat your opponent, move on to the next round, beat someone else .. so success.
This tournament is not for the faint of heart..
Want to take part in a “competitive” gaming tournament without having to break into nervous sweats? Then be sure to grab an N64, kick back, grab some pop corn and push two, maybe three buttons on route to multiple victories.
This tournament is approved for those faint of heart.
We will also have two free-to-play areas set up for those just looking to play some old games at their leisure.
There will be an N64 and a GameCube with a variety of games for you to browse and play.

We at GameX believe that the Greater Toronto Area and Canada as a whole, pumps out some incredible gaming content for all to enjoy.
That’s why, this year we’re implementing the Developer’s Den into our day of gaming activities. Come see some of the great content that Canadian Indie Developers are creating. Get some first-hand gaming experience with some of the coolest new characters and explore new styles of game play.
Here is your opportunity to speak with the magicians behind the scenes to truly get a sense of what really goes into building a game from scratch. If you have any questions about the Developer’s Den or any other events taking place, please feel free to contact us.
