Games Convention Asia Days 2 & 3 & CosCon

Well, I’ve put this off long enough. I really ought to do this post before I keep whoring SoulCalibur IV and completely forget about this. Anyways, Here’s the coverage for days 2 & 3 for GCA 2008. Awesome stuff there for those two days, but of course, the crowd gets thicker as the days go by…

I played the trial for the English version of Emil Chronicle Online, and all I can say for the graphics is “moeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee”… Fugging cute character models and concept art. If only the translators and encoders had put in more effort into bringing it to this neck of the woods, I might consider playing this version. However, for a couple of reasons I won’t play the SEA version. Here’s why:

1) It’s being hosted by Runup and IAH. The former is a China-based company, the latter is known for EPIC PHAIL… And I haet yellow commies, fugging bootleggers.
2) Translation sucks. I hate to say this, but ODEX did a better job with their fuckshit. Oh, wait, they steal fansubs…
3) Encoding needs work. If the words don’t fit in the dialog boxes, why not just resize the boxes, bitches?

Meh, as expected from a company that’s based in a land full of bootleg crap.

It's so cute... Too bad it's fucked up by complete retards.

Next up, is this Frostmourne replica at Caesar’s and Popcorn Gaming’s booth. For the uninitiated, Frostmourne is a bastard sword(It’s either a bastard sword, a great sword, or a zweihandler, no longsword is that large) used by Arthas Menethil, later known as the Lich King.

Nice detail on the crossguard

Next up, comrade Fariz tries out Dead Space, one of EA’s new games, which will be released for the Xbox 360 later this year. According to one of the nice American correspondents, Dead Space will be ported to the PC eventually. Let’s watch him hand out punishment to some undying mutant zombies… These guys are scarier than the flood. According to the correspondent, the design team outdid themselves for this game, and the dark atmosphere really helps to enhance the scare factor, and it does help get the old testosterone running. Not for the faint of heart, though…

They're dead, but they're moving...

Here’s another game that looks interesting, Holic2. Haven’t seen the in-game graphics, but I want to RAEP that nekomimi…

NEKOMIMI FTW!!!

Ran into the cosplay club from school. One of them’s doing the Lich King(Mao Mao, if I recall his nickname correctly). While they were venting about how I didn’t recognize them at first sight and us joking about a Frozen Throne, one of the fellow members held up Frostmourne.

He aspires to the Lich Prince...

The Lich King in all his glory...

We managed to get a few shots of a wandering Clone Shock Trooper and an Imperial Pilot.

Some lucky guys who aspire to join the Empire

And now the best cosplayers(my own opinion) there were there. Too bad they didn’t take part in the coscon…

And now, coscon… But first, I need to say this, because everyone who was there already knew this… PHAIL EMCEE IS PHAIL. Anyways, first up, crabhead zombie from Half-Life…

All he did there was groan, seriously…

Very convincing blood stains…

Next up, Naruturd… or, as PHAIL EMCEE calls him, Uzumaki… She needs to be taught that Japanese names have the family name before the given name…

Next up, Sawada Tsunayoshi, or just Tsuna, from Katekyou Hitman Reborn!…

Next is the Lich King, leader of the Undead Scourge…

Next up, KAMEN RIDER ICHIGO! I had two other pictures, but for some reason the camera didn’t want to focus. FUCK…

TOU!

TOU!

Next up, a Blood Elf hunter. The suit looks HAWT. The person wearing it? Reasonably HAWT. Plus, she can speak basic Thalassian, or at least the greeting.

Next up, Thrall, son of Durotan, Warchief of the Horde, successor of Orgrim Doomhammer. Wielder of the legendary Doomhammer.

He spent 1 month making the costume. In that one month, he forgot about eyeholes and reinforcing the joint on the Doomhammer.

Stick to Taretha, Thrall...

Next up, a Gunner from Monster Hunter…

Next… well, I don’t have the slightest clue… But well, all I can say is… TRAP!!! That face doesn’t even remotely look like a girl’s face… So either that’s an epic fail attempt at trap, or that’s one fugly female…

Ruka from Vampire Knight… THAT’S ONE FUGLY FEMALE… Looks more like a trap, however… And I don’t think any female character was this wide…

Camera decided to fuck up again… But it shields out some of the horror…

You do NOT want to see this, I tell you nao before you are scarred for lyfe...

Finally, some relief from all the horror, Kasumi from DoA, but the rest of my pictures were blurred like hell, so you’ll have to make do with these.

Next up, Lavi from D.Gray-man…

Moar camera failage…

Next, a Champion from Ragnarok Online… Seems like Champ’s been hitting beer and nuts a little to hard…

Next up, the total EPIC PWNZORZ Knight Templar from Hellgate: London

Some REALLY WIDE C.C…. Dood, that looks somewhat like a trap if you look at the face closely…

Moar fail Gayass characters… Lulu never put his hands into his pockets. Meh, double negative?

No idea what this is, but I want to know… The original looks cute, but that’s a guy under the mask, just in case you wanted to know…

Next up, Allen Walker from D.Gray-man…

Kikumaru Eiji from Prince of Tennis…

Comrade Citsu and one of his waifus, Hinagiku from Hayate no Gotoku…

Yes, he's a happy man... If only he'll look at the camera instead of the reflection of her pantsu...

Yes, heYes, he's a happy man... If only he'll look at the camera instead of the reflection of her pantsu...

Loot for the two days put together…

And now, the elbow gallery, dedicated to that fat fuck who kept shoving his elbow into my shots…

One elbow...

One elbow...

Two elbows...

Two elbows...

AND A HEAD!!!

AND A HEAD!!!

Meh, enjoy…

    “So welcome back to the..GTA? Was it GTA?”

    *looks back*

    “OH GCA haha, I almost forgot!”

    No emcee should ever forget the name of the event which they are helping out in. Obviously a basic. Fail emcee is fail.
