Canucks Converge on Casual Connect

CanadaCanada – Seattle in July means it’s time for Casual Connect, hosted by the Casual Games Association. This is the first year that I will be able to attend the event, and it looks like I’m going to be in some very good company. While some of us are venturing down to take part in the Leadership Development Forum being held the day before the actual conference, many others will be looking to make business connections and display their products to the thousands of attendees. It is through the assistance of the Consulate General of Canada in Seattle and the Department of Foreign Affairs & International Trade that many of the Canadian companies are able to attend the show, and I know that they will be taking full advantage of the opportunity. I know that I am looking forward to meeting many of the people I have until now only known through email and press releases.

When I asked our Consulate representative for a list of the Canadian companies who were confirmed through his office to be attending, I had no idea that the number would be so high. I had planned on doing a nice blurb about each company, but for the sake of brevity and time consumption, I have opted to list each participating company or individual with a link to their respective sites.

“Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines” follows Altair’s story right after the events of Assassin’s Creed as he hunts down the ascending Templars in Cyprus. It’s the only game that explains the link between Assassin’s Creed and Assassin’s Creed 2. If you want to understand how Ezio is born and where the Codex comes from you need this game. Well,  time to dig out the PSP which is located somewhere in the cavechild’s domain…at least I have a few months…or maybe get the new generation…decisions, decisions…

Assassin’s Creed PSP picks up right where Assassin’s Creed ended. After the death of Robert De Sable by Altair’s blade, the Templars, led by Armand Bouchart, fled the Holy Land to settle on the island of Cyprus. Following their tracks, Altair has the firm intention to put an end to the Templars’ quest for power. Altair will help the local resistance fight the Templars’ occupation and get rid of the Templar commanders.
