Game Start Asia 2015 - First Glimpse of Sony Playstation VR System

What is a game convention only without any board games!

Capital Gains Studio bravely ventures into the world of digital gaming and set up a booth at Game Start Asia 2015 to showcase the beauty of cardboard and social interaction via their economic board game, Wongamania: Banana Economy.

Game Start Asia has allocated a business day on Friday to allow media, game insiders and VIP guests to have a first look and try at some of the latest games available. Consumers will be able to attend the convention on Saturday and Sunday. After showcasing the beauty of cardboard games for a couple of hours, we decided to venture to the gaming booths which has a relatively light crowd.

After my experience with Tokyo Game Show whereby there are long queues everywhere, making it almost impossible to play some of the best and innovative games out there. Getting a slot in one of the virtual reality games is mission impossible.

Thus, the first port of call of Game Start Asia is the Playstation VR Booth whereby we get to pick on of the 6 programs which we can try/ I tried out Summer Lesson which is essentially a Japanese style dating sim whereby you get to be a Japanese Sensei, teaching a hot gorgeous blond chick about Japanese. She sits very close beside you and you stare into her eyes, while you stare into hers. Irresistibly, you will feel like reaching out your hand to.....

The list of VR programs you can try out

Well, I guess you get the picture. I can imagine a whole lot of applications for this kind of interaction.

As a Hearthstone player, I am pretty excited by the upcoming "Leagues of Explorer" adventure. Guess what, you can get to try out the stages ahead of the official launch of the adventure! I had a first hand feel of the new powerful legendary cards which the new adventure has to offer.
