4) Top Notch Exhibitors
Sony PlayStation brings us a big blunder of surprise by introducing the Project Morpheus in UAE for the first time along with other titles at their booth. Xbox Gulf has brought us pretty big stuff this year like every year they have taken me to the apexes and round the corner but in rain because its the all new forza 6 we’re talking about! with fresh new weather system, epic dynamics and active damper system, playing that I can tell that this is by far the best Forza I’ve played and not that I am happy because still in rain without tcs, abs and simulation handling..I still took 1st place in vintage Ferrari.
Our favorite and by far the best gaming store “Dikkan Al3ab” will give you that nostalgic feel’ you all have been waiting for and now.. all you have to do to play Mario or classic street fighter is to head directly to their booth alongside Hori fighting sticks booth as well aside. Biggest retail and distribution chain in Middle East “Geekay Games” is bringing you Sebastien Loeb Rally EVO, and No it’s not another codemaster’s disaster apart from that is the brand-new turtle beach line up which includes: Turtle Beach’s Elite 800,Ear Force Stealth 500X,Ear Force Z60 Papabubble, Mystery Zone (virtual reality), We all know what comes to our mind when we look for anything with quality and not easily findable item, that is right! “Virgin megastore“.
Lets not forget that store in Khawaneej, Dubai..”Game street” one of the most famous game shop among the Locals of UAE is exhibiting for the first time at such a convention and not that I am shocked or anything but I am quite surprised that they are trying to step-up in terms of professionalism. Ever wondered how’d it feel to run away, with high heart rate since you are running away – saving your own life from zombies? Nope, I never experienced it yet but if you’d like to, you can head over to “Contagion run” not sure, if it’s going to be that weird crossfit stuff. Along with them is our Pluto Games, Red Entertainment, and Viva Entertainment with some of the epic releases in 2015!
5) Gaming focused – Guest Attendees
This year, its first time that we have a guest that’s way focused to the gaming industry apart from Critical Hit, Natus Vincere, and Envyus, we have Ellen Mclain and John Lowrie who are two of the most famous voice actor and actress’ in Team Fortress 2. Wrestling is your thing? It has become an heritage for Games event to have a wrestling superstar every year, This year we have the WWE superstar “Daniel Bryan“..YES!
You’ve might have heard about “Street Fighter”..If you didn’t..something is horribly wrong with you.. “Ono san or Ono Yoshinori” will be attending today for the signing and so on.. don’t get late! Gerard Marino, one of the most popular video game music composer will be attending and I’ve no clue about this year’s Video Games Live..so heres a good chance to meet and greet him, people! For International celebrity cosplayers, we have Zhiana and Variable coming to cosplay..It would make no sense at all but I’d really want to say this “KAWAI”.
