PLAY! CONVENTION 2014
By Hui Min
It has been a hectic weekend! But hell yeah we’re still going to PLAY!
Having experienced a gaming convention before, and as leisure gamer myself as well, I’m definitely thrilled about this idea! Held at KDU University College, an educational institute well-known for encouraging the digital art and ACG industry in Malaysia, PLAY! is definitely going to be a blast!
I am especially looking forward to the POKELARP & Tekken tournaments!
Heck there is even a special room so you can bring your laptop and “party” up with people!
Partially organized by the nice people behind Comic Fiesta, this event is running smooth and without much trouble, well of course there is also room for improvements.
Talks’ over, so now let’s head on to the GAMEPLAY!
Looks like it’s full house for the newly launched card game- Avarium Academy.
Over here, an enthusiastic gamer is performing superhuman feats on a music game. I am so gonna play this when I get back. It’s called Yousei Teikoku, a really creative style that I’ve never played before.
Cosplayers are challenging each other on a mission of human VS wooden puppet (Mokujin) in Tekken.
As usual, there will be merchandise booths for avid collectors. They even brought in the now in-trend GUNDAM models! There are also various booths where new games and concepts are being introduced, fresh ideas and fun courses to enroll in.
Console games are free-to-play too!
We’ve experienced all these for RM5.00 only, everything in the event is FREE to PLAY!
So here’s to our journey through a promising gaming convention. Really hope to see it in a larger scale in the future! Also, more board games please (just because I love them!) So stay tuned for the next event updates!
