Latino Gamer

Latino Gamer LatinoGamer.com is an independent, minority-run website that covers gaming events in the greater Los Angeles area, reports on industry news and provides video game reviews as well as opinion pieces discussing both contemporary and classic video games.

We regularly attend LA-based community events, including the StreetPass Los Angeles MiitUps in Little Tokyo/Downtown, Los Angeles, video game previews and art exhibitions at iam8bit theater in Echo Park and Indie Video Game Nights at Giant Robot. For the past two years we have been able to bring you news and video coverage from major industry events such as the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), the Anime Expo and Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo. Shortly after graduating from Occidental College, Rafael Alejandro started in 2008 by uploading his amateur video reviews to YouTube.com. He then began a blog to share his videos with friends. Today the website is growing and over the years we have been able to cover larger-scale gaming events, including Nintendo's Wii U Experience, Pokemon Mall Tour, Sega's Sonic Boom Concert Capcom's Fight Club and Electronic Arts' Need for Speed Car Show. We are always looking for new opportunities and collaborations, so feel free to contact us through E-mail, Facebook or Twitter. If you are an independent developer, we would be glad to share news regarding your games with our readers. If you are hosting a community or gaming event in Los Angeles, we would love to attend and cover the event.

PAGE UPDATE: So, the reason there hasn't been much activity this past year is because I relocated for work and I am currently living in Seattle. However, I did finally get a chance to visit home for Los Angeles Comic Con. You can see some pictures I've been sharing from the event on my Instagram. Later on, I'll be posting complete albums here on Facebook. Enjoy!

Pokémon

Looks like I'm gonna have to get a Switch at some point...

While I'm not really a fan of Pokemon Go!, I'm always glad to see a game with Co-Op! I wonder if people will refer to these games as Pokemon: Yellow version and Brown version? 😜

Return to the Kanto region and experience a classic Pokémon journey in a whole new way with Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! on Nintendo Switch! Coming November 16, 2018: http://bit.ly/2ISUMVX

Up next will be the pictures from LA Comic Con this past weekend.

A quick trip out to Pasadena to check out this small convention. Turned out to be a pretty fun little con, but the parking sucked!

I reached an important milestone in every Dungeon Master's career tonight. I killed my first player character. One of tonight's three rogues rolled a 1 for two failed death saves, then proceeded to fail again next round for three total.

In the next fight, the fighter got critically hit by the boss monster and instantly died from massive damage.

It really should have ended in a TPK, but the store was closing and I had to rap up quickly, lol. #DungeonsAndDragons Game Empire Pasadena
