The 2013 expo will see not one, but two stages of tournament madness courtesy of [IGN Pro League](http://www.ign.com/ipl). Also, thanks to [GEEK Magazine](http://www.geekexchange.com/), there will be a 3rd stage dedicated to all aspects of gaming culture with presentations from [Marvel](http://marvel.com), [Mojang](http://www.mojang.com/), [Gearbox Software](http://www.gearboxsoftware.com/) and many more. SXSW Gaming's venue will also play host to two major parties, SXSW Interactive's famous opening party and the SXSW Gaming party courtesy of [VGVN](http://videogamevoters.org/). Expect a national-level band courtesy of [Alternative Press](http://www.altpress.com/).
