GameStart 2014 in three weeks!

It's impossible to get into E3 without a professional connection to the industry, Gamescom is a 13 hour pilgrimage away, and the closest, being Tokyo Game Show and PAX Aus, will still make a small dent in your pocket. Ain't nobody got money for that!

Elicia Lee and her new start-up, Eliphant, will be staging the solution come 25th and 26th October: Singapore will be home to GameStart, a convention that focuses on the massive gaming culture.

The abysmal failure of Licence2Play has left quite a handicap but her raging passion must have stirred something in the executive hearts at Sony Computer Entertainment Asia. With a strong show of 200sqm of booth space support, they will be coming in with a showcase of upcoming titles for both PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®Vita, including DRIVECLUB™, LittleBigPlanet3 and FREEDOM WARS™.

She has even managed to persuade Bandai Namco Games, which was last seen at L2P 2012, to return to the local convention scene. With an arsenal of video game franchises, ranging from PAC-MAN™, Tekken™, SOULCALIBUR™, NARUTO™, NARUTO SHIPPUDEN™, Dragon Ball®, to ACE COMBAT™, GameStart will be making an explosive debut. I'm betting my firstborn on Dragon Ball® Xenoverse!

I'm a huge huge huge fan of mobile gaming and I have folders of free to play and paid games so I'm pretty stoked to see game developement studios Boomzap Entertainment, Inzen Studio and Witching Hour Studios though I might be guiltily giving Witching Hour Studios a wide berth; I have yet to launch Ravenmark even once!

Also, Capcom Pro Tour Asia Finals will see winners from China, South Korea, Taiwan and Singapore battle it out with their favourite Street Fighter at Gamestart. This clip was chosen because the commentator is hilarious. Wait for his YOLO uppercuts. Fans of Daigo will be pleased.

The full game lineup will be announced tomorrow during media preview! Follow me on Twitter for live updates!
