Belated Comic-Con Africa Day 3 post
Category : News
#ComicConAfrica Day 3 is in the bag and honestly, we’re late with the post. Sit around guys and gals and we’ll tell you the story of the worn out gaming bloggers.
So yes, we’re a little late but there’s a reasonable explanation. The truth is the entire team is completely worn out by the time Comic-Con Africa Day 3 came to a close. We decided that we’re off duty for the third day and instead use that time to have a bit of fun on the other side of the camera. Yep, we stepped into the shoes of the regular patrons. And boy did we have a lot of fun.
Of cause as a gaming blog, the focus of our fun was the gaming booths that littered to show floor. Granted, it’s not the scale that we’ve become accustomed to at rAge Expos (Which is coming soon) but none the less it was still varied enough to be entertaining. The PlayStation stall focussed on VR and Spider-man. We are currently busy with the game with a review coming up soon but that didn’t stop our boy Riaan from taking it for a spin. I got to finally try out the Aim Controller on Far Point, a game I overlooked during its release window. Which I really want in my collection after the playthrough I had.
The Xbox booth had a much more varied collection of games. From the phenomenal Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Kingdom Hearts III, Strange Brigade all the way to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Strange Brigade was surprisingly fun with a Horde-like mode they had at the show. It caught me completely off guard. And Kingdom Hearts is just brilliant, the demo had Olympus and Toy Story levels. This is one title that can’t be released soon enough.
There was still more to experience at phenomenal Comic-Con Africa. We took some time off the gaming, chilled and watched the high action VS Gaming tournament that was on the show. Energy Academy and Big 5 Gaming eSport teams really took their battle to the absolute max. It was very exciting to watch and tournament came down to the wire. To end it all off, we took a stroll at the stalls selling all manner of Action figures, comic books and the like. And my goodness some of those items are just above our pay grade. But none the less, highly detailed figures were on show.
Comic-Con Africa was a resounding success. Pretty impressive for its first time. We just can’t wait to do this all over again in 2019. Let’s just hope fewer Celebrities don’t cancel in the last minute. Now if you’ll excuse us, we need to take some time off to recuperate. Don’t forget to enter into our gaming giveaway, before the time runs out. As always, keep it locked to SkyGamers.
