 East Side Games Group Inc. (TSX: EAGR) (OTC: EAGRF) (" ESGG " or the " Company ") announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange (" TSX ") has accepted its notice to proceed with a normal course issuer bid (the " NCIB ").

The Company's board of directors believes that the market price of the Company's common shares (the " Shares "), from time to time, may not reflect the inherent value of the Company, and purchases of Shares pursuant to the NCIB may represent an appropriate and desirable use of the Company's funds.  Any purchases made under the NCIB will be made by the Company subject to favourable market conditions at the prevailing market price at the time of acquisition through the facilities of the TSX and other alternative Canadian trading systems.

Pursuant to the notice, during the twelve month period commencing August 16, 2022 and ending August 15, 2023 , the Company may purchase up to 4,076,819 of its Shares, representing approximately 5% of its outstanding Shares as of August 2 , 2022.  Under the NCIB, other than purchases made pursuant to block purchase exemptions, the Company may purchase up to 5,371 Shares on the TSX and other alternative Canadian trading systems during any trading day, which represents approximately 25% of the average daily trading volume of the Shares on the TSX for the past six calendar months, being 21,486 shares per day. The Company may cancel any Shares repurchased under the NCIB, or reserve them for awards under its equity compensation plan.

In conjunction with the NCIB, the Company has entered into an automatic share purchase plan (the " ASPP ") with a designated broker to allow for the purchase of its Shares under the NCIB at times when the Company normally would not be active in the market due to applicable regulatory restrictions or internal trading blackout periods.  The ASPP has been pre-cleared by the TSX and is effective August 16, 2022 , the commencement date of the NCIB.  The ASPP constitutes an "automatic securities purchase plan" under applicable Canadian securities laws.  Shares purchased under the ASPP will be included in computing the number of Shares purchased under the NCIB.  Outside of these internal trading blackout periods, purchases under the NCIB will be made based on management's discretion.

Although the Company intends to purchase Shares under its NCIB, there can be no assurances that any such purchases will be completed.

CGMagazine Closes Out Summer With The Summer of Gaming Print & Digital Issue

CGMagazine Publishing Inc. With the return of live, in-person events, CGMagazine has had a busy few months, experiencing everything that Summer 2022 had to offer. This month, CGMagazine released The Summer of Gaming print issue, a massive depot of all things gaming, from events and reviews to the most exciting developments to come.

The Summer of Gaming Issue (CNW Group/Comics Gaming Magazine)

Summer Game Fest and Gamescom 2022 took the helm at the forefront of all gaming events, introducing many of the most anticipated games spanning a multitude of genres. The CGM team sat down and spoke with those spearheading several of these titles, including Nightingale , Gotham Knights , and Homeworld 3 .

For those who were unable to attend these events, the CGM team was present to make sure its readers did not miss out on anything important. Gamescom 2022 returned after two years of being restricted to a digital format, seeing more reserved numbers in attendance but being no less impressive. Meanwhile, for its very first year of inception, Summer Game Fest quickly became a staple of what gaming events could look like in the future .

" Summer Game Fest and other separate events like the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase, PlayStation State of Play and Day of the Devs made all the gaming announcements throughout the summer more manageable," Executive Editor Dayna Eileen recalled after attending Summer Game Fest : Play Days. "Being broken up into different days or weeks gives fans—and journalists—the chance to digest what they've seen rather than have it all thrown at them at once."
