      The organizers of the Vancouver Retro Gaming Expo in March are coming back with an event focused on newer video games.

      The all-ages, weekend-long event will include tournaments, panel discussions with developers from Radical Entertainment and Hothead Games, guest speakers such as Vancouver-False Creek NDP nomination candidate Matt Toner, a screening of the documentary Indie Game: The Movie, a performance of Video Game Burlesque by the Vandolls, a concert by missingNo, and a charity auction.

      Tickets are $30 for the weekend or $20 for one day, and are available at EXP Restaurant + Bar (309 West Pender Street) in Vancouver and Gamedeals Video Games (407 Columbia Street) in New Westminster, as well as online. Adults purchasing a Sunday pass get two kids (15 years old and under) in free.
