So what is GameStart Asia

2014 saw the first-ever GameStart Asia. It was meant to be SouthEast Asia's answer to E3, GamesCom, Tokyo Games. A true Gaming Convention with playable games, sprecial guests and loot.

While it wasn't at the level of those powerhouses, it certainly wasn't a pushover. It impressed me a lot for it's first year. Likewise, with most attendees.. not many of us expected it to be of the scale it turned out to be.

Guests were impressed to see VIPS like Masaaki Yamagiwa, producer of Bloodborne's Producer grace the event.

Try out games like EvolveBloodborne, Far Cry 4, Dead Island 2.. way before they were released 

Win exclusive gaming swag.

and Check out great Cosplay!

It was an impressive start but the organisers aren't resting on their laurels. This year, the convention will be taking up 2 halls compared to 1 last year. 

While the guest and exhibitor lists have not been revealed, I'm pretty confident in seeing an even bigger and better GameStart this year.
