Star Wars 40th Anniversary Fan Celebration 2017 – Malaysia

The Star Wars 40th Anniversary Fan Celebration 2017 – Malaysia dubbed​ #TheForceis40 event – is happening right now at the Blue & Orange Atrium at Sunway Pyramid. The Orange Atrium is where all the Brands are participating (as in the photos – Hasbro, Hot Wheels, Royal Selangor etc. The Blue Atrium is where the Fan Communities will be having their activities this weekend.

The schedule as stated in the first 2 shots. After last years #GoRogueMY Rogue One movie event, it’s great to see another Star Wars event so soon 🙂

Full album here on Facebook: Star Wars 40th Anniversary Fan Celebration 2017 – MALAYSIA.

My Top 5 most impressive stuff today were:
1) The Lego displays by the LUG of Malaysia​. Inspired the photographer in me 😀

2) #HotWheels Tracks to try!! 

 

3) That NEW Royal Selangor​ #RoyalSelangor #Pewter #MillenniumFalcon Millennium Falcon with retractable landing gear!! OMG a gorgeous RM2,200!

4) That NEW Royal Selangor Pewter #LukeSkywalker lightsaber! Beautiful!!

5) Glad to see PlayStation Asia​ there with the #PS4 with #StarWarsBattleFront demo stations & Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens. 6 Stations to try them but the MOST IMPRESSIVE was the ability to try the #PSVR demo mission on Star Wars Battlefront​! Get in the cockpit of the classic T-65 X-Wing! Fly thru space with Red Squadron, back at your R2 unit, look down at your pilot suit, your boots, your gloves, your X-Wing dash board…. and even WATCH YOURSELF BREATHE!! It was amazing!!

So don’t forget to swing by this gigantic fan event. Almost all the Star Wars fan communities will be present & running their own activities on the weekend. Despite this being a fan event – official recognised (by Lucasfilm Ltd) groups such as The 501st Legion Malaysia Garrison, The Rebel Legion Malaysia Outpost, Fightsaber Malaysia and Star Wars Malaysia Fan Club will be in attendance! “Today will be a day long remembered!”

Final Fantasy XV Launch 2016 – Malaysia

_dsc6565-2The started out with video game event revival with the Street Fighter V launch in January for the PS4 at Bangsar APW. Then following the course of the year we had the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End mid night launch in Sunway Pyramid then Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare midnight launch in Galactic Laser, Sunway Pyramid_dsc6568-2

After an already exciting year for PlayStation Asia console fans… came the even bigger event! A worthy finale for 2016… in which we can celebrate the return of console events! _dsc6581-2

_dsc6570-2

Fun and relevant freebies xD

huhu We heard that only us, in Malaysia, got this event launch!! Oh yea! Yet even more to thank Mr. Wan Hazmer for… besides teh tarik + roti canai in the back streets of FFXV 😀 img_20161128_212612-2

Yes, he is the home town hero… the man of the hour… ‘home boy’ does country proud in Japan!! It was great to see him in person at the event talking to friends & fans. He was certainly the man of the hour and it was great to see him mingling with attendees.

Not only has he put Malaysia on the map in the gaming world, he now has even introduced the gaming world to our culture… food & drink… which is SO Malaysia xD A really Malaysian past time!! Hahaha “Jalan-jalan cari makan”, “In Malaysia we only have 1 meal… with short breaks in between!” haha Keep up the good work Mr. Wan Hazmer! It was a very nice community touch to have this event in Malaysia & have our local hero in attendance – Thank you Sony PlayStation.

_dsc6575-2

Familiar faces in the crowd! It’s the Comic Fiesta Team!

Now this is not just a random place to have the event. These specific places were selected because 1. It had to be a place that could stay open after 10pm because it’s a midnight launch… so the crowd has to be there till past the stroke of midnight. So the selected venues must be able to sustain the air-con for the entire duration of the event. 2. location selected had to have thematic significance or content significance! i.e. Call of Duty midnight launch was held at Galactic Laser!

So with the selection of GSC Maxx aka the ORIGINAL (first) IMAX cinema in Malaysia… we knew it was going to be some extra SPECIAL content install for us. What’s the hype with this being the first / original IMAX hall? Well firstly, because it was built with an optimal IMAX blueprint spec and not built on an improvised space . This screen is a 3 storeys high (yes, as in a house with 3 levels high), and it has a large seating capacity, in this case 488pax and the screen + seat tilt in an angle that allows more ‘sweet-spot’ viewing… with less distortion (yes I am a hard core movie buff haha).

img_20161128_214037-2

488 seating capacity at the GSC Maxx hall at Berjaya Times Square!! Gigantous!!

_dsc6601-2

Now that it is a GSC Maxx hall, I am not so sure about the quality of projection but I know that the view angle is great & the sound system should be great, if still maintained properly 🙂

Anyways, back to the event haha at the right time, all the attendees were ushered into this gigantous hall where the PlayStation, the game creators and Mr. Wan Hazmer has lotsa goodies for us!! The first glimpses to welcome us was the glorious 4K game trailers and footage!! You really had to be there to see it!! img_20161128_213606-2

So here are the sights from the very very special FFXV launch at GSC Maxx, Berjaya Times Square, 28 Nov 2016! For the full album check out our FB page: FFXV Launch 2016 – Malaysia

img_20161128_210717-2*Finally just wanted to acknowledge & honour one of the big influences from inside PlayStation SEA regional office who always vouches for Malaysia, Mr. Teoh. He has come a long way since the Malaysia office in late 2000s. He continues to strive to have events for the gaming community here in Malaysia. If you remember the Street Fighter IV competition at E-Curve back in 2008, then you have an idea of where his heart is 🙂 If you’re a PlayStation gamer and you see him at an event, do go up & thank him 🙂

Looking forward to more gaming events in 2017!!


Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Midnight Launch – Malaysia

Just when I was thinking… it’s been a big gap from the last gaming event, the Uncharted 4 midnight launch Malaysia, came the news of the launch of the next chapter in the EPIC first person shooter games – Call of Duty! Well for me I wasn’t feeling the gap that much because I managed to head down to Singapore for South East Asia’s premiere gaming event -Game Start Asia 2016! huhu That was fun & yet another LEGIT “Convention” in Singapore.

Anyhow I was starting to feeling the gap for the Malaysian friends & fans as maybe its more than time to get out & about again! Klang Valley folks were fortunate get a bonus *Pokemon Go Launch (fan event) which was parked at the recent Cosplay Corner. But other than that it was kinda quiet. Then came the news from PLAY Interactive of confirmed date, time & VENUE of the next game launch. Woo hoo! Great timing.

*On another note, thanks to the guys (fan event) who were diligent & relentless (I might add) at pursuing official endorsement for the local 3DS Community – we have the chance to experience a bonus gaming event later this month. More of that in the next article!*

Now, Call of Duty & Medal of Honour were games I thoroughly enjoyed playing on the Playstation 2 (PS2). It really fueled my undiscovered passion for first person shooters & the desire to be a head-shot sniper! xD The only things to fear in the early games were MG42 & tanks. Anyhow after those were over & the life of the PS2 had end I had no desire nor the extra funds to buy the next gen console (then) Playstation 3. Then while hanging out at the uber cool – Outpost Cafe at Cineleisure Damansara (now E@curve), good friend of mine ask to play the latest rendition of Call of Duty called Modern Warfare. OMG I got hooked & just had to get a PS3 to play this game & have continued ever since. No Playstation 4 for me yet… but I guess some where down the line.

==========================

So yet another EPIC franchise launches it next chapter & HURRAY for the local fans & friends that we get to get out & geek a out again! 

Looks like the organisers like Sunway Pyramid! But the cool twist this time is that it would take place in GALACTIC LASER, Sunway Pyramid! The theme made sense, the place was relevant & the space was good! Great choice guys!

So folks who had pre-ordered their game could come to the event to pick up their game as soon as the stroke of midnight. By pre-ordering you got 5 extra goodies to take home – a movie size 2-sided glossy poster, a tee shirt,  a tactical themed watch, Bonus Map “Terminal” and Zombies in Spaceland!

There were 3 bundle of the game:
1) Standard Edition – Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Game Disc)
2) Legacy Edition – Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Game Disc) + Modern Warfare Remastered (Digital Download)
3) Legacy Pro Edition – Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Game Disc) + Modern Warfare Remastered (Digital Download) + Season Pass + Collectible Steelbook + Digital Game Soundtrack + Additional Digital Content 

 

BONUS TREAT
For those who attended there were 2 major bonus treats! First it was the PLAY & Redeem challenges. You needed to complete 4 simple tasks to get 4 stamps on your card in which you could later redeem a Playstation goodie bag 🙂 

The next treat was epic – all attendees would get the chance to play Galactic Laser … team group death-match for free!! All you had to do was to line up & wait your turn. Of course each game last 10 minutes so it was limited to how much time that was available for everyone to play. But all in all it had the right theme & the right GAMERS!

For the full album of photos go to our FB album: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Midnight Launch – Malaysia

*HINT*: A little blue bird told me that there will another Playstation 4 title launch event before the month is over!! So we gamers get 3x more in November! Reward for waiting so long? Maybe hohoho!

A BIG thanks to PLAY Interactive Asia & Playstation Asia  for organising this event. Will be looking forward to the next one!

Uncharted 4 Midnight Launch Road Show Event – Malaysia

The Captain was on the scene just hours before the midnight launch of Uncharted 4 at the Road Show held in Sunway Pyramid. Limited goodies & freebies so go check it out soon. This road show is on now all the way till Sunday, 15 May 2016. Four Uncharted 4 Free-to-play stations to be expected. Goodies & Freebies NOT expected to last very long after the crowd that I saw present at 7:30pm on Monday! Mind you the queue for the game only starts at 10:30pm! Wow! 

There’s a special activity card that gets you a a goodie bag if you get the four stamps. There is a air dart gun shooting range & four game demo stations to get the stamps. There is also an additional WeChat scan + spin the wheel.. to win an instant PS Goodie! 

The Staff have a very nice gold print t-shirt! *Hint* Organisers any chance I can get one? It’s really befitting such an amazing title series!

With the big bosses from both Play Interactive & Sony Playstation not there, there was no chance in catching the latest news or even sneak peak reveals of what’s next from both sides for the Asian market… but more significantly for Malaysia! 😀 So it looks like we will just have to wait & see… with fingers crossed!

So far what we are hearing is that many reviews are already dubbing it to be the GREATEST PS4 game ever! Well done to the folks at Naughty Dog!!

Great to see yet another video game event for Malaysia!! More to come I hope. For the full album photos do check out our FB album: Uncharted 4 Midnight Launch.

Don’t forget to pick up your complimentary copy of Gamehubs #1 featuring Street Fighter V!

Thanks to PLAY Interactive, Gamehubs, PlayStation Asia, and the soon to be open Gamers Hideout outlet in Sunway Pyramid!!

Official Captain America appearance in Malaysia

Well just hours after I posted my blog about how much the local Captain America: Civil War road show in Malaysia lacked content, Sunway Pyramid dropped this bomb of a poster. Sunway Pyramid kept this as a surprise & only revealed this on the premiere night of #CaptainAmericaCivilWar in Malaysia on Weds 27 April. Obviously it wouldn’t be Mr. Chris Evans himself appearing or else they would have about a months worth of promotion haha not to mention the tons of $$ involed. So based on experience, my best guess was that it would be “an official licensed costume worn by a kuai-lo model”. In the end I was right… but then again there was so much more to it than that.

What was interesting (cute funny) was that the Sunway Pyramid FB page didn’t really know how to phrase what was going to take place. I don’t know whether they wanted to keep certain things ambiguous so to keep the shoppers in suspense or was it a licensee guidelines… I won’t know but I just felt that I must go! The sign above phrased it “Meet & Greet Marvel’s Captain America”. The Sunway Pyramid FB page coined it as “OMG! MARVEL’S CAPTAIN AMERICA CHARACTER IS COMING TO SUNWAY PYRAMID?” and “Come take a picture with Marvel’s Captain America character this 28th April to 2nd May…”. Marvel’s Captain America character? Hehe that caught my attention.

Here are some pics at the special appearance of the official Captain America mascot at the Sunway Pyramid – Captain America: Civil War road show.

 

He kindly obliged to pose like the image on my tee shirt! 😀 And I think I was the only one from the crowd who understood when he said “Let’s do 2 poses… first one back to back”… haha cosplayer talk xD I must admit.. my right arm felt missing a shield xD

 

I was telling him I wore the right shirt in my collection for the right version of Cap – the Avengers 1 version designed by Agent Phil Coulson

Why is this so special?

  1. This is the official movie costume, made by the same production house in California who made the Avengers 1 wardrobe. YES, the shield too. It is the aluminium metal promotional shield use for media appearances, not the stunt shield (rubber) or the actor shield (carbon fibre). Whether the costume & shield is screen-used, I don’t know. But it was awesome. His glove alone had all those blue patches like seen in the actual prop display at SDCC 2012.
  2. The Captain America talent is the official contracted individual to represent the character of Captain America at Disneyland theme parks worldwide. In short, this means in the Disneyland Universe, when you say “Captain America is coming” it means this guy is coming! Like how in the MCU, when they say Captain America himself is coming to Singapore…. it means Mr. Chris Evans!
  3. Professional? The appearance team was flown in all the way from Anahiem, California… home to the first & original Disneyland (now Resort too)!
  4. Professional? The appearance is conducted, run & overseen by Disney folks from the South East Asia Regional office and Anahiem, California.
  5. Professional? You got to hear about the working guidelines & ethics from the event production folks. Very educational & inspiringly insightful.

If you haven’t caught it yet do head down to Sunway Pyramid because this professional & official sanctioned appearance is only for a limited time only = 28 April – 2 May.

Appearance is 4 times daily: 12pm, 2:30pm, 5:30pm and 7:30pm.

Blur photo yes… but it is a key moment as a fan. It’s the same feeling I had when I read in the comic where Captain America meets with President Roosevelt after a successful mission & it was President Roosevelt that presented Cap with the gift of the new round shaped shield to replace the old one! In awe

I’d rather take a picture saluting him but we’re only allowed a short time on stage & only limited to 2 photo clicks… apparently.

Captain Ameica: Civil War is showing now in Malaysian cinemas nationwide!

*YES! Thanks to special previleges, I was allowed to touch the real, screen prop, movie shield!*
