We’re all massive gamers here at MyCityByNight, having grown up with Nintendo SNES and Sega Genesis as our consoles of choice, used to pass the hours spent on school holiday. That’s why we were pretty amped to hear that the countdown to this year’s really Awesome gaming expo (rAge) was officially underway. The continent’s largest technology and gaming exhibition, brought to you by the creators of NAG magazine, is a three-day fever fest of everything that is gaming, as well as all the latest technology, running from 4-6 October 2013 at the Coca-Cola Dome.
Expect a showcase of computer and console gaming hardware, PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo games, gaming accessories from joysticks to headphones, comic books, figurines, anime, role-playing, cosplay, board games, creative arts, competitive collectible card games, local game developers and much more! There are even rumours that there’ll be a couple of international developers and experts in the field who will be allowing visitors to interact with them and to see – and even play – preview (beta) game code months before it goes on sale.
rAge 2013 sees the return of the mind blowing NAG LAN – a thrilling 56 hour event where around 2,000 gamers are connected for the largest LAN (local area network) in the southern hemisphere. Tickets for this sell out in a matter of hours, so be on the lookout for the bookings open notice sometime in August.
Okay… my geek freak out is over now.
