Otronicon v2: A festival of games, pwning

Jan 14 // Papa Niero

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.
