What makes GameCon different from other conventions is the fact that it focuses more on games of all kinds – may it be from board games, card games, MMORPG and now the much-compact mobile games.
It is indeed a gamer’s event for there are games that can be played for FREE! may it be arcade games, card games (with tutorials), newly-launched mobile games and even robotics what will surely amaze every otaku and geeks who graced the event.
And like any otaku-related event, there’s cosplay competition where most of the cosplayers played as their loved characters from different games. Notable cosplayer Ashley Gosiengfiao is one of the judges from the group cosplay competition on its second day, here the DOTA group won.
There’s also a competition for board games and mobile games! Mobile Legends is now on hype and GameCon is hosting a tournament for MB groups!
Everyone’s also welcome to take pics with the pretty maids from the Maid Cafe.
There are also merch that are on sale, like the anime magazine reruns, shirts…
and retro games! I swear that I want to have that SailorMoon console from the retro games booth!
To those who are interested in the gaming and tech innovations, there are starup booths that are also in gamecon like the one from EON booth (where they revolutionize the banking technology to be more convenient for everyone), Sparklab (for 3d and V-bit carving) and Philrobotics (they also hosted the robot wars during GameCon!).
I love how GameConPH caters to a different kind of geeky audience. It is something that games of all kinds will love and will be enjoyed for kinds of all ages.
And because of that, I’ll be looking forward for the much bigger and better GameConPH next year!
