The Noobie Survival Guide to GameStart 2014 // Issue 3

A jam-packed morning and early afternoon of frantic scrambling after deals, loot bags and premiums justifies a little pampering - take things down a notch, forget the craziness and just soak in the heady atmosphere of what will be Singapore's best gaming convention.

7. Capcom Pro Tour Asia Finals

There's really no humanly possible way to wrest that PS4 from the experienced hands of Daigo, not unless you are one of the other 7 finalists in this year's Capcom Pro Tour, so if you really want the Beast tamed, hang around for the Finals, where your puniness would be validated in their godly display of Ultra Street Figher IV skills.

Xian has already handed my ass back to me during Media Preview so I will hold onto the sad remains of my behind and clap appropriately.

Live streaming available!
Producer Tomoaki Ayano and Executive Producer Yoshinori Ono will be popping by on the 26th so get your Sharpies ready! Places you can get their autographs on: SF video game boxes, arcade sticks or controllers, Instax (stand out and use Rilakkuma ones!)
8. Retro DNA

If you're part of the Pioneer Generation like me, then maybe the original Street Fighter without the fancy advanced techniques and razzle dazzle  might be more up your alley.

Teaming up with Versus City, expect freeplay of the greatest classics from the 70s, 80s, 90s and the early millenium. This might be the only remote chance you'll come across as being cool, especially when you punch in the fabled passcode of Contra.

If someone puts up Dungeons and Dragons: Shadow over Mystara, I'm never leaving Hall 403.

9. Cosplay

And no convention is complete without cosplayers. GameStart will see three featured artists - Yuegene Fay (Thailand), Tessie (Singapore) and Yasemine Arslan (Australia) - and host a cosplay competition Game On! Let's just pray sensible kids will not re-enact the 2013 underboob debacle; no Ryuko in shredded uniform!
