Games Convention Asia 2008 – Day 1

Well, I got my lazy ass out of my house and went down to the Games Convention Asia held at Suntec City. I went as a member of the public, since I’m not 133t enough to go as a member of the press. Not like it would have made any difference, since I don’t go for seminars, except that the press has a press kit, meh, no big deal.

First, a booth by Gameflier, a MMO company in Malaysia, if I’m not mistaken. They were promoting some of their latest MMO games, including some Chinese MMO because I can’t read Chinese. Runup(booth was next to Gameflier’s) also promoted some of their games including Angels Online (by Runup), which has very cute character designs, but the in-game sprites leave something to be desired… One other game they had on display was Fantagetar, which I have no idea what kind of MMO it is. With a name like that, my first character will most likely be named “Getter-1″…

I can't read the title...

Not bad, but I don’t think I’ll be playing Angels Online. The sprites look too much like gaiafags. Amazing, it’s not that crowded at around noon, but it did get much more crowded as the day went by. Surprisingly, there were school kids there as well, in their uniforms, no less.

It was empty when I got there! WHAT HAPPENED?!

Meh, Runup’s local branch was also showcasing Radiant Arcana, which looks okay in design, haven’t seen in-game sprites.

Swung by another booth where pros were dishing out punishment to each other on SoulCalibur IV.

The match started a few seconds before I took this shot.
