Time to hit the MCM Expo 2012!

XCom Enemy Unkown Custom MachineThe London Comic Con MCM Expo is back again this year and is here from the 26th t ho 28th of October, and we are showcasing our custom machines built for 2K’s XCom: Enemy Unknown at the exhibition. This is an exciting weekend for all the gaming and comic fans! I wonder what this years Comic Con will bring?

The Wii U is going to be showcased by Nintendo just like they did at the Eurogamer Expo earlier. The Wii U is also going to be released later this year, the first release out of it’s generation of consoles! Hopefully in future exhibitions we will see the latest consoles from Microsoft and Sony. Assissins Creed III: Liberation and Far Cry 3 will also be shown at this years exhibition. A Tekken Tag Tournament 2 contest is being held by Namco Bandi. Borderlands 2 which has already been released is also being shown off. And the upcoming games Hitman: Absolution and Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Tales of Xillia, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3  are among many other games being demo’d to the public at today’s exhibition and throughout the coming weekend. There is just so much that we can’t list them all, but it is sure to be an action packed weekend.

There are also going to be a whole range of celebrities at the exhibition including actors from the Games of Thrones and Bond girls. So have a good time at the exhibition, and look forward to seeing you there.

Happy Gaming!

The Eurogamer Expo 2012!

The time has come for the Eurogamer Expo again, we shared an area with the the guys from Replay just like last year. Lasting from Thursday 27 to Sunday 30 September 2012, it was an extremely busy end of week for the retrogamer community!

Bespoke Arcade at the Eurogamer Expo 2012We were showcasing our Apex, Evo and Synergy models and our area was absolutely jam packed with lots of interested gamers. It was so busy that there rarely was a free machine to jump on to and play! We witnessed many amazing battles being fought on Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition and Ultimate Marvel versus Capcom on our PS3 Compatible Evo Arcade Gaming Machine at the Eurogamer Expo.

Our Synergy models were attracting a lot of interest especially the cocktail model, due to the the sleek and elegant coffee table design which comes in a choice of literally any colour. The retrogamers just couldn’t get enough of Bubble Bobble, it was the gamers’ most popular choice on our Synergy model which comes supplied with over 300 other games.

We also presented a prize to the winner of the Street Fighter 2 Champion Edition tourney. The Wii U was also being shown off and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was available to play, with incredible demand! Ian Lee also came round and had a go at playing one of our machines.
