Games Convention Asia 2008

Work’s been rather busy this week, that and hanging out with family but I did manage to find time for Games Convention Asia 2008. After all it’s part of work 🙂 It’s the second time round this annual game show is in town and after 3 days it’s now all over. As part of my job, lucky me gets to check it out 🙂 So there we were, Daph, Daryl and me exploring the show floor, gathering market intelligence and testing out the different games.

Yep, you read right 🙂 After the official opening and with the crowd still on the quiet side, the three of us managed to try out a couple of games. We had a go of the F1 track that’ll happen next weekend … yes, the virtual one designed and created by the NYP students. Made up a band and had an audience watch us as we tried out Rock Band at the EA booth. My favourite was the Nintendo booth where different Wii sets were available with different games … if I had a TV at home, I’ll buy a Wii set … thank goodness, I don’t 🙂 After all that intense market intelligence gathering, we took a break with WALL-E and EVE.

Made me all excited about the film, can’t wait to catch it this weekend 🙂 In the meantime, GCA see you next year for my annual gaming fix 😉
