Recently my wife and I traveled to beautiful Anaheim California to cover the 2013 Blizzcon Convention. The convention sold out online in moments and drew fans of Blizzard Entertainment from around the world for a weekend of news, panels, previews, music, Cosplay, and more. Those who were not able to get into the convention were able to follow along via DirecTV or through online streaming which could be purchased from the company. (more…)

With the worldwide impact of FIFA at an all-time high, EA Sports has captured the majesty of the sport of Soccer with the amazing FIFA 14. The game is available for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 systems and is due soon for the next generation consoles.
While I played Soccer in High School I will admit that my knowledge of the professional game is limited as names such as Pele, Beckham, and Donovan are the players that I would be able to identify the easiest. Regardless of your level of skill and experience, FIFA 14 has something for you from eye-popping graphics to the most realistic action and player options of any soccer game to date. (more…)
Accent Inns is all about being green but I don’t think we’ve ever looked at it from a frog’s point of view…..
Thanks to Skewed & Reviewed Magazine for this fun piece of entertainment news!
It’s not easy being green………… lol
Accent Inns was proud to support our entertainment partner Gareth and his team from Skewed & Reviewed Magazine at the 2011 Emerald City Comicon. The event took place just south of us at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, WA. The crowds were huge and we look forward to welcoming many of our Washington State neighbors at our Accent Inn BC hotels located in Hollywood North (Vancouver BC).
Check out this video and some of the interesting costumes at the event.
One of the young Hollywood stars I’ve certainly enjoyed watching is Christian Bale. I think he did a fantastic job as the incredibly complicated character, Batman. Well this past weekend he’s been given the Oscar for his role in The Fighter. Well deserved. Read on for a review of the movie compliments Skewed & Reviewed Magazine and perhaps you can enjoy watching The Fighter in your room at an Accent Inn.
Based on a true story, The Fighter tells the tale of two brother boxers. Retired and addicted to drugs, Dicky Eklund (Christian Bale) lives life as the town hero while dreaming of a comeback career. Meanwhile his talented younger brother Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg) is reaching his fighting apex. That is, if he can choose to move past family ties that are holding him from success.
The surprising sibling chemistry of actors Bale and Wahlberg is the successful binding force in the The Fighter. The skill of these two brings relevance to the film for an audience that might otherwise step past a sports story by giving it heart. (more…)
We’ve put together a little list of some of the top gift ideas Accent Inns staff recommend for this holiday season and our friends at Skewed & Reviewed have put together a great video showing their picks for video’s and movies, and we know all about both being that our Burnaby hotel is so close to Electronic Arts (EA), Bridge studios and Vancouver Film Studios.

I’m a middle aged (yes, don’t sound so surprised) guy that likes playing the occasional video game. What guy doesn’t? It’s even better when I can hang out with my daughter and play games together. What can my wife say about that…..lol
I must admit though that I’m not up on all the latest (still enjoy my play station 2) games out there so I’m really enjoying our new partner, Skewed & Reviewed. So much to learn.
This latest entry , Gareth speaks with paint ball legend Greg Hastings. Legend? I didn’t even know you could play paintball on TV let alone the fact that they had a legend!
Apparently they have over 1000 real players for this latest version including moms (very cool)and Ninja’s and they make up their own rules? Gotta love the world of online gaming.
Accent Inns has added a new feature called entertainment. Because we like having fun and helping our guests do the same, we are expanding from just listing concerts and events to partnering with our new friends at Skewed & Reviewed to bring you even more information about the latest movies, games and travel ideas.
Social media is certainly a hot topic and the new movie The Social Network is about as topical as you can get, with a touch of drama thrown in…
