Play NYC is quickly approaching, and video game fans can't wait to get some hands on experience with some of the best games hitting the market this year. 100 exhibitors will be on hand to show of their coolest games inside Terminal 5 on Saturday, Aug. 19 and Sunday, Aug. 20. 

Aside from playing games, there will be several speakers on hand throughout the two-day event. Based out of Brooklyn, Anya Combs has been helping game creators around the world as the Games Outreach Lead at Kickstarter. Dan Ackerman started out as a radio DJ, but he quickly found himself writing about video games for publications such as The Hollywood Reporter and WWE Magazine. When he's not writing about a hot new video game IP, he's releasing music. Ackerman has released four studio albums, including 2012's The Futurist.

Other speakers that will be on hand include Joshua DeBonis, Patricia Vance, and Tom Salta. You can check out the full list of speakers announced for Play NYC below. Tickets are on sale right now on AXS.
