Arriving in early in morning, to Armageddon to see what finally the place looks like before the place opens. it feels empty at first like a scene from Battlestar Galatica when they decide to settle on New Caprica, leaving an empty BSG 75 only a few to maintain the ship you can hear the corridors sunshine quiet. until the doors open up with a warm buzz of arriving patrons creating life into the emptiness of the sallow out halls.
There are a lot more items than from the years of last, the event has grown even larger than last year. Think this year it tweaked itself out as I wondered into deeply into the three large halls of the ASB Expo Pavillion center in Greenlane. There’s new variety of items. I notice this year as I was walking around the stalls, it seems it more delicate to the Cosplay, with cosplay clothing, accessories, weapons. it’s starting to feel like Comic Con in San Diego but only Benito smaller. I’ve notice there was a lot of gore cosplay on sale too, this may have been that Halloween is comming up, and now a upcomming tradition in slowly interculturing into Auckland.
One thing that I’ve notice from the last, the gamimg section as gotten larger, last year the EA stall has occupied largely center peice in the gamming hall, now it’s being replace by Sony Playstation, larger than the last time it was here. Curious to know that the Xbox stall has gotten smaller, mostly it has been replace by other smaller gammer companies, but even more larger presents of NZGammer. with Sony it has a much larger present that it ever had before, it’s giant uber size stalls which was previously held by EAgames. Noticing the Sony Playstation stall, crowed by all, there’s been much attention to the move controller, and to Playstation 3 verus to Microsoft Kinect, which had a smaller presence.
Other thing noticing along the way, Activision still remains a great presence having showing games such as Bizzard, Guaitar hero DJ Hero, mostly it’s musical instrumental interactive platforms. Having more room for Playstation exhibit I’ve notice there’s more R16 rated games this year than from the last.
There were more Rated sixteen games, such as Kill Zone 3, Special Forces and God of War. At most of the time when you want to trying out the games it’s pretty much lining up and waiting for you turn, but it’s worth the…. wait.
