The Electronic Entertainment Expo, or better know as E3 for short, is a favourite show to attend for many gamers and tech lovers. It is the largest convention of its kind in the Western World and thousands flock to Los Angeles Convention Centre each year to check out the latest game launches, consoles and accessories.
The bigwigs of the games industry, like Sony, Microsoft, Bandai Namco, Ubisoft and Capcom, usually make their important launches and announcements at E3. With popular game developer and producer Ubisoft, E3 2016 will be a special show for the company. It is their 30th Anniversary this year, and they are all set to make E3 the base for their celebration with their fans.
The company and its creative teams will be unveiling a host of exciting games at the convention. On the list are Watch Dogs 2, For Honor™ and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Wildlands, plus a few other surprises!

Judging by the love showered upon "Game of Thrones" actor Isaac Hemsptead-Wright during his appearance at ION Orchard yesterday (2 April), it seems the local fans have sorely missed seeing Bran Stark in the drama's previous season.
The audience has practically seen the young actor grow up on screen as Bran. However, the young noble had been missing for the entire Season 5.
At that point, Bran's story had mostly caught up with what had happened in George R.R. Martin's books. The other reason: Bran was undergoing some Westeros-Harry Potter-style training with the mysterious shifu Three-Eyed Raven.
In the new season, there will be more Bran Stark (YAYY!!) and even better still, more handsome badass Bran Stark (W00t, W00t!).
When Red Dot Diva arrived at the venue 45 minutes before Isaac Hemsptead-Wright's scheduled 3PM appearance, hundreds of fans were already waiting patiently at the surrounding area. About 50 Starhub contest winners were also within the holding area, as they will get a chance to meet him in person later on.

When Red Dot Diva conveyed to her the breaking news that young Bran Stark aka Isaac Hamsptead Wright will be visiting the Red Dot Island for the series' Season 6 promotion, Celine was so excited, she sputtered out this inspired piece of haiku:
Winter is coming
April 2nd, Bran Stark comes
Jon Snow is still dead
*Suddenly having visions of Jon Snow dying in pools of his own blood* Nooooooooooooo!!!
But also, Yeahhhhhhh!! Bran Stark is
Making a guest appearance in Asia for the first time, 17-year-old Isaac Hampstead Wright will be meeting fans on April 2nd at the Game of Thrones Experience: "Worlds of Westeros" (#GOTAsiaWOW) at ION Orchard, Basement 4. This special interactive area is set up by HBO Asia to pump up the anticipation for Season 6 of the award-winning fantasy drama series based on the books written by George R.R. Martin. The new season will premiere internationally on April 24th, 2016.

Gamestart Asia 2015 kicked-off with a bang yesterday at Suntec Convention Centre.
There was a grand official ribbon-cutting ceremony by special guests and an industry/ business conference.
The gaming convention occupied 2 halls this year, which offered far more space for fans to wander and try out the gamut of titles available.
Red Dot Diva (together with Ed from Toys-etc and Andre the Red Dot Dude) was at the Media Preview yesterday and from the looks of it, this year's convention had definite buzz to it.

Some very exciting things are in store for those who are heading to Gamestart Asia 2015 two weekends from now!
This year's edition is a pumped-up version of last year's inaugural show, and will occupy double the space at Suntec Convention Centre, and held over 3 days (13 to 15 November 2015), including a business conference day for those who want to get to know more about the ins and outs of the gaming industry.
To build interest leading up to the convention, the organizer Eliphant Pte Ltd, has even joined hands with developer Seow ‘Sonic’ Zong Hui to build their very own game app. Have you all downloaded and played the Gamestart app already?
Naturally, local gamers are excited about attending the show so that they can get their hands dirty on the new and upcoming titles, as well as cheer for their favourites at the Capcom Pro Tour Asia Finals. But, what if you are gaming noob like Red Dot Diva?
If you are kinda tech-savvy, or generally interested in the visual arts form of story-telling, Red Dot Diva suggests a few interesting things that might capture your interest at Gamestart Asia 2015.
