GameStart 2014 Mega Picture Post

Here are the photos from the inaugural GameStart videogame convention, held at Suntec Convention Centre Singapore on 25-26 October 2014. 


Sony's booth babes

The opening ceremony



Confetti for all! 

Taking this shot reminded me of what my theatre teacher always said about levels.

The cosplay panel featuring Yuegene, Tessie and Yasemin.

Rolled the dice, one came up twice...


Bear this Aiden Pearce in mind; he crops up later

Here I am with two of gaming's best female characters (if there were a Samus Aran, I would've taken a photo with her too, but alas, there wasn't)

Theodora as Lara with my custom figure of the character


A pair of Booker DeWitts try their hands at some retro arcade games

Watch out for that Skyhook, Lara!

Tomb Braider. 


Showdown

No spinning bird kicks to be had this day.

Om nom nom.

Free advertising for Razer. You're welcome guys. 


"Come quietly or there will be...trouble." 





"I may not always love you..."

"But long as there are stars above you..."

The Tenth Doctor and Captain Jack Harkness get cozy.

Cozier.
Coziest. This one's for the shippers out there. 





Best in Singapore, JB and some say Batman.


Kuro Koneko knocking it out of the park again as Lady Loki

Don't kill the fanboy! 

With my friend Vienna as Asuna from Sword Art Online.

Street Fighter champ Daigo in the centre there

The caption Kuro provided is "You dare!? Pah! Insolent mortal... Your Midgardian weaponry cannot harm a God!"





10 and 11 fighting over Jack (yes yes, I know 11 didn't meet Jack...)


Careful there, Lara is known to be a one-woman mercenary-slaying army. 

Cap'n Jack has at it with the dual wielding.

Here's Lara with Sharlene as Alyse, GameStart's official mascot.


Justin took me up to the roof for a Watch Dogs shoot.
Lots of jumping on ledges was involved.









Kicking off Day 2 with some fourth wall breakage! 


ODSTs strike!

Hey Ms. Pyramid Head. Play nice.

"Korobeiniki" is playing in your head now, isn't it? 




My friend Rayner capturing the Tennant wonderment.



I was so glad to see a Batman character.




You know the name, you know the barcode.



These Naruto Storm producers said that if the fans beat them at their own game, they would swim back to Japan. They were beaten by two fans. Get your floaties inflated gentlemen.



My Fair Lady Deadpool


Jason as Big Boss from Saints Row presiding over the Game On cosplay competition.

Alice: The Madness Returns

Dante from Devil May Cry






Wilson's ODST performance featured a pretty funny Singlish voiceover.



Remember the Deadpool from earlier? This guy just owned. 













The judges of the contest, Yasemin, Yuegene and Tessie.


Kie as Joseph Oda from The Evil Within.








Hey Gwen as casual Clint Barton! 

Dual wielders unite! 

Motoko Kusanagi is pretty much the only anime character I recognised at this con.

See you at next year's GameStart!
