Otronicon v2: A festival of games, pwning


11:57 AM on 01.14.2007



We took the red eye out of Vegas and a road trip to visit Otronicon V2 in Orlando, Florida: a festival of video games and series of video game tournaments hosted by The Professional Gamer's League and the Orlando Science Center. Pictures of the madness below.

The show is very comprehensive -- we sat in a next-gen console wars discussion, strolled through galleries of digital art by Full Sail students, and pretty much ran around like good robots do.  There are also Dance Dance Revolution tournaments, a rock stage rigged for two man Guitar Hero II performance; casual games; kiddie stuff, and a 8-story cinema rigged for an all-out Halo 2 onslaught. The show is open for another 7 days so if you're anywhere near Mickey Mouse; we recommend you bring the whole family -- there's something here for the chilluns, the old folks, and the hardcore gamer.

We took some time out with the Halo 2 tournament first round winners; look for that video this week.

No Man's Sky planning 'something different' at PlayStation Experience

I've been excited for No Man's Sky for almost a years' time now, but it has become a passive excitement as I wait patiently for it to release. This video, what with some footage I haven't seen and it generally looking a...more

Narcosis: Hallucinogenic, ocean floor terror

I said it when I checked out Amnesia developer's SOMA early this year, but we could do with some more games set underwater. It's a scary place. There are goblin sharks down there, damn it. And you don't even have t...more

Inside My Radio is a rad rhythm-platformer

There are things to consider when it comes to playing music in public. Are you in an open space, perhaps a park, with enough distance between you and others so that your tunes don't dance on over into unwilling ears? Are you...more
