This was the first event in which Sly had a "Sly Vs." video on The Creature Hub channel which featured him interviewing cosplayers and random people (He has done one at all conventions he has attended since).

E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo)Edit
The Electronic Entertainment Expo, commonly known as E3, is an annual trade fair for the computer and video games industry presented by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA). It is used by many video game developers to show off their upcoming games and game-related hardware. E3 is commonly held in late May or early June of each year at the Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) in Los Angeles.
On June 4, 2012, Danz, Nova, Kootra, Gassy, and Seamus flew out to E3 in Los Angeles, and met up with Ze. They found out that since they had normal passes, as opposed to media ones, they had to wait in lines.
Held under the Spec Ops: The Line banner at the LA Convention Center. It was on June 6, 2012.
James and Jordan flew out to Los Angeles on Monday June 11, 2013 to attend E3, and met up with Ze like last year. Unlike the previous year, the group obtained media passes, granting them access into more booths and events. They went to the Microsoft press conference. Dan flew out later that day, since he didn't get into the Microsoft press conference. The group also attended EA's press conference.
On Day 2, the group interviewed the developer of PAYDAY 2 and played several demos on the show floor. During their second room tour, they were too loud at 2 AM, and a security guard had to come knock on their door.
They also attended The Alienware party, and hung out with other YouTubers such as Immortal and Chilled. After E3, Ze flew out to the Creature House with them. They did a 3 Hour episode of Creature Talk, featuring 6/7 of the Creatures (Sp00n did not attend) and Immortal as a guest.
The group gave impressions on:
- PAYDAY 2
- Beyond: Two Souls
- The Witcher 3
- Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag
- South Park: The Stick of Truth
- Project Spark
- Dead Rising 3
- The Walking Dead: 400 Days DLC
- inFAMOUS: Second Son
- Batman: Arkham Origins

San Diego Comic-Con InternationalEdit
Dan, Jordan, Max, Seamus, and James attended SDCC 2012. There was a lot of coverage of the event uploaded to The Creature Hub channel and their individual channels. The Creatures attended various panels, and saw/met celebrities.
James, Dan and Aleks attended SDCC 2013. They were not exactly happy to see their hotel room, especially after they smelled the box, which was the source of the awful stench the smelled when they first came in. So they went to a different hotel after checking out. After RTX (Robin Tryout Expo), BatDanz found two candidates. Robin #1 (James) and Robin #2 (Aleks) went on a bunch of misadventures to get the next position as Robin, such as getting a free pretzel and getting a phone number. Meanwhile, BatDanz was talking to the new Alfred candidate and the Joker. Finally, BatDanz chose Robin #2 to become Robin or Roleks. Angry and depressed, Robin #1 became El Luchador.
