*Heads up, parking will straight up suck at Santa Monica college. The closes place to park is $35 and street parking is bad, because of college zoning rules. We highly recommend a Lyft like service or taking the Metro.

IndieCade is the annual independent game festival showcasing off a number of games you might only get to play for one day. Some will make it on console, while others are group activities that you and friends might only get to try once. We've written about it year after year and are always delighted to see what new games there will be to try.

Don't forget about the Night Games! These usually get weird and wilder then was played earlier in the day and for one night only.-IndieCade's 2019 NIGHT GAMES

Somehow keeping the comic-con name even though we thought San Diego's Comic Con made it legally only there's to use and their other offerings, NY and Wonder, LA Comic Con is back for another year, pending legal action.

As per usual expect to see a wide array of celebrities guests, small and big, special panels from past cartoons and TV shows and a whole lot of cosplay. Highlights from the festival and even World 8 is doing gaming stuff.
