2018 Gaming Conventions

E3 2018

If there’s anything that comes to mind when someone mentions the words “gaming convention,” it’s probably E3. E3 is known as being the convention for the biggest projects and upcoming games from major companies, and there’s nothing quite like being among the first people to find out that your favorite series has an epic expansion pack coming out in the coming months. You might even see your favorite professional gamers walking around the convention! E3 takes place from June 12 to June 14 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, so don’t wait to buy tickets and a hotel room if you’re thinking about going!

San Diego Comic-Con 

San Diego Comic-Con is another California-based gaming and comic book convention taking place from July 19 to July 22 at the San Diego Convention Center. From anime-centered panels to autograph sessions with celebrity comic book authors and your favorite actors and actresses, there’s truly something for everyone at this convention. You’ll see creative and extravagant costumes ranging from classic superheroes to characters from today’s hottest games. If you’re not one for dressing up, then you should consider purchasing a few of our new Neopets pins to meet fellow Neopets enthusiasts!


Blizzcon is one of the year’s biggest events for fans of World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Hearthstone, and other games from Blizzard Entertainment. It’s held in Anaheim, California at the Anaheim Convention Center on November 2 and 3. The world’s biggest eSports teams will go head-to-head against one another, and you’ll almost certainly be shown a teaser for your favorite Blizzard game. The first two tiers of Blizzcon tickets have sold out quickly, so be ready to purchase your tickets the next time they’re released! With mythical wardrobes and fantastic weapons from ancient realms and futuristic cities, the costumes at Blizzcon are among the most impressive you’ll see at a gaming convention. We know that not everyone has time to create a costume, but our Neopets pins are a great way to create a sense of camaraderie with your fellow attendees!

We hope that you’ll be able to attend at least one of these events and share your enthusiasm for gaming and entertainment with like-minded individuals. We know that you probably have an epic costume in the works, but if you’re looking for something to wear at a convention when you’re not in costume, then head over to Overpowered’s online store! We have a great selection of gaming merch, and our new line of Neopets merchandise will make the perfect addition to your enamel pin collection.
