2014 Canadian Video Game Awards
Dorkshelf’s Interview with Victor Lucas

By Jorge Figueiredo - December 5th, 2014


During the 2014 Canadian Videogame Awards, we teamed up with Dorkshelf to increase the amount of coverage that we could attain. So, while I was interviewing some of the voice actors and Evan was photo-documenting the event, Jonathan Ore (Dorkshelf) was chatting it up with the main man himself, Victor Lucas. You can check out the text version of that interview here.

And for the audio version, you can go here (although, you’ll have to dig through the file to find the interview).

The 2014 Canadian Videogame Awards. Click the pic to see the interview gallery.

This year’s Canadian Videogame Awards was held on November 21st in Toronto, Ontario. Rather than the typical red carpet procedure, we got to freely mingle and chat with folks in the VIP area. Needless to say, there were a lot of interesting people to talk to – but there was not enough time to chat with everyone. Thankfully, we did manage to find some old friends (and new ones) to chat with. To extend our reach and make the most of our experience, we teamed up with Jonathan Ore from Dork Shelf.

So sit back and listen to our podcast, in which we chat with the likes of: Kate Drummond, Shaun Hatton, Cristina Rosato, Victor Lucas, Jim Watson, Roger Craig Smith, and Mark Meer. For the sake of visual reference, click on the image above to see a gallery containing each of our interview subjects. Most of them are selfies (because that’s what the kids are doing these days), and were evidence of a great time had by all.

2014 Canadian Video Game Awards

By Evan Bergstra - November 26th, 2014


Jorge and I got all dolled up Friday for a night on the town, specifically for the 5th annual Canadian Videogame Awards at the Carlu in downtown Toronto. With cameras and drinks in hand, we were lucky enough to rub shoulders with the great actors who voiced Commander Shepard, Anna Grímsdóttir, Bruce Wayne, Sarah Palmer, Aveline de Grandpré and plenty of other iconic videogame characters from the last few years. The spirit of the night was delightfully positive because we were all there to share the same thing: an appreciation for, and celebration of, the accomplishments made by Canadian artists, producers and developers in every sector of the videogame industry over nearly two years.

2014 Canadian Videogame Awards Coverage

By Jorge Figueiredo - November 22nd, 2014


Well, last night was a blast! Evan and I were joined by Jonathan from Dork Shelf to cover the 2014 Canadian Videogame Awards. In the last few years, the CVAs have been hosted out of Vancouver, and Rituro has made it his business to ensure that we have a presence there. However, this year the event was held in downtown Toronto (at The Carlu).

We have always wanted to work with Dork Shelf on projects, and this is our first real collaboration. So stay tuned, and we will soon be posting photo coverage, some written pieces, and some audio to give you an account of our experiences!
