GameOn Post Game Show – Episode 9: Organizing Gaming Events


Today, we talk about games being used more than just for a single person’s enjoyment.

Let’s talk about gaming events!

The GameOn Post Game Show podcast is coming back to GameOnGNT. Expect a new podcast every week as we talk about various video games, what games are gracing my TV screen (if any) and my latest thoughts on gaming news.

More great content to come!


GameOnGNT and XBone? – Preparing for Extra Life Game Day 3

GameOnGNT And XBone? It finally happened.

Thank you to Aarons of Cranbrook for providing an XBox One and PS4 for the Extra Life Game Day. We appreciate your support!

Yes, I suck at Killer Instinct.

An Update on GameOnGNT – Fall 2015

So you may be wondering what’s going on with GameOnGNT as of late.

To sum it up quick, new babies need a lot of attention, so a summer break was needed after Logan was born July 15th.

As you can tell, babies tend to cry a lot, which can make it really difficult to do any sort of recording for the time being. Last thing you want from us is gameplay videos with a little one screaming in the background.

That being said, summer is over now, so we’re doing some reorganizing of our social media and websites, then getting back to it!

We are looking at starting new content soon, finishing off a few projects on the go and doing some games we promised earlier this year. On a sidenote, aside from YouTube and Blogging, I’m also thinking of giving Periscope, Spreaker and Livestream a go. Again, we’ll see what happens with these and base doing them on what time allows for.

I’ve also noticed a lot of inactive accounts that I’ve been following on social media, especially Twitter. Twitter accounts are going to be cleaned out a bit before we get going again.

So what have I been up to over the past couple of months? Playing Dangan Ronpa 1 and 2 and helping to organize a gaming fundraiser. I’m really excited about Extra Life Game Day Cranbrook, which is shaping up really well for October 17th. If you’d like more info about it, check out www.facebook.com/extralifegamedaycbk.

Anyway, I apologize for the slowdown in content. As I always say, life happens. Content will be returning to our YouTube channel and our blog soon enough. I’m looking forward to getting started again.

GameOn’s Random Adventures at the Extra Life Game Day 2014

The Extra Life Game Day was held in Cranbrook, British Columbia on Saturday, October 4th, 2014. Its a new event looking to support Extra Life and the Alberta Children’s Hospital.

Naturally GameOnGNT would be there, especially when you get the opportunity to play video games and help sick kids while you’re at it!

The event was a great success. As a first time event, nearly 100 people came to take in the festivities, with over 3350 dollars raised through the course of the day.

Not only did this event get support locally, it had a lot of supporters internationally as well, including one sponsor you may recognize as the voice of Duke Nukem, Jon St. John himself!

Thanks to everyone who came out for the Extra Life Game Day! We look forward to seeing you again next year!

Jeff Plays Destiny – Part One – Wizards from the Moon!!

GameOn’s Jeff Johnson is giving one of the biggest games of the year a go, as he pulls out the controller and headset to try out Destiny!

We’re foregoing the usual review you would see a website or YouTube channel do when a new game comes out, given how late to the party we are, but we are going to have fun playing this game and seeing how it goes and bringing you some gameplay videos of our initial gameplay.

A big thank you to Activision for providing GameOnGNT with a review copy of Destiny.

Activision also provided GameOn with a PS4 copy of Destiny, which will be available as a prize at the Extra Life Game Day in Cranbrook on October 4th.
