Gamestart Asia 2016: Get Ready To Blast Off at Suntec Convention Centre, 7 - 9 October 2016


Gamestart Asia, the biggest gaming convention in South-East Asia, is all set to blast off their third edition at Suntec Convention Centre, 7 to 9 October 2016.

The show mascot Alyse has also levelled up to 3.0, all geared up in a more kickass-armour and weaponry, thanks to Kinetiquettes and Xmashed Gear. Love the new Alyse and want to bring her home? You can do that by getting hold of the beautiful custom ¼ scale statue of Alyse, crafted by the talented Kinetiquettes team. There are even LED Light-up Features in the statues! Check them out here.

Red Dot Diva attended Gamestart Asia for the first time last year. Even though she wasn't a gamer, she had a fun time trying out a Sony Playstation VR game and checking out "uniquely Singapore" mobile app games like the KAN-CHEONG! Kopitiam Saga. She also became a X-Wing fighter for awhile playing a few minutes of Star Wars Battlefront. The best experience though was hitting targets inside the Star Wars Battlepod. She lined up to get her adrenaline rush of two rounds of that immersive and thrilling game!

AsiaPop Comic Con Manila 2015: Clear Your Vision! Paul Bettany Joins Celebrity Guest List!

SQUEEEEEeeeeEEEE!!

This fantastic news drops early in the evening for all geeks who will be attending APCC Manila two weeks from now.

Paul Bettany, who made waves recently as the powerful android Vision, joins the growing celebrity guest list for the convention!

Red Dot Diva first noticed the talented Brit actor when he shared screen time with Heath Ledger (one who is still greatly missed) in the 2001 movie, "A Knight's Tale". In the movie, Paul Bettany had many memorable scenes as the charmer Geoffrey Chaucer but mainly also because he flaunted his adorable nakedness in the first few scenes, like so:

SDCC 2014: A Pretty Smooth Pre-Registration

A major hurdle of the San Diego Comic-Con registration process was cleared yesterday.

From the looks of it, the new pre-registration process went on pretty smoothly.

With the ample two-hour time block for people to login to the EPIC waiting room and assigning random queue numbers to those there, the horrible server outages of previous years were more or less resolved.

Red Dot Diva noticed significantly fewer frustrated cries of people unable to login at all, even though there were a number who said they had been booted out of the waiting room or faced error messages. It was also interesting to point out that the waiting room queue numbers allocated were indeed truly random. Some people who entered the waiting room later ended up being near the front of the actual ticket purchasing process. So, as long as one managed to log into the waiting room, it was really all The Hunger Games "reaping" like.

SDCC 2014: Countdown To Pre-Registration Day On 8 February!

Tick tock, tick tock...

After a long long looooonnnnnnnnnng wait, pre-registration for this year's biggest and craziest geek event, San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC), will kick off at 9 AM Pacific Time on Saturday, 8 February.

That's just a few hours away!

For the last few years, pre-registration (i.e. the time when people who had attended the previous year's SDCC try to get their passes online) have always been held before November.

This year, the online process has been scheduled unusually late - only 5 months ahead of the convention dates of 23 to 27 July.

Don't Wait! Get Your NYCC 2013 Tickets Now!

Blame it on the insanely popular but sold-out San Diego Comic-Con, some say.

But if you have missed out on those SDCC passes and really need your geek fix this year, Red Dot Diva advises you to hurry and get your NYCC 2013 tickets now!

3-Day tickets for NYCC 2013, priced at USD 65, went on sale yesterday May 15th, and the official word out from organizer Reed Exhibitions is that over 50% of these tickets have ready been sold! While it is not selling in a geek-frenzy like SDCC, it is still moving out steadily and fast. In fact, Special Access VIP (4-Day) tickets, which were released for sale in March, have already been sold out.


Red Dot Diva's convention roomie-pal @eserei27 was online yesterday morning to buy the 3-Day tickets and said that there was a virtual waiting room like SDCC's booking portal, but there did not appear to be any server issues. She managed to finish her transaction in 10 minutes with no problems at all!

SDCC 2013: All Open Registration Tickets Sold Out!

Yes, they are ALLLLLLLLL GONE.

Online registration for Comic-Con badges was opened at 9am PST on 16 February. That was about 20 hours ago.

Within the hour of registration, all 4-Day + Preview Night badges were sold out, and a few minutes later, all 4-Day passes were gone too. Saturday 1-Day badges ran out shortly later and by after 10.15 am or so, all available passes were snapped up.

Compare this time frame last year, where passes were sold out within 7 hours. It is as if the Comic-Con passes are becoming to be more sought after than gold kryptonite!

Red Dot Diva was curious about the online registration process and decided to go through with it to see what the experience would be like. At 9am sharp, she clicked the "almost secret" registration link ("thanks" to a particular Comic-Con blog who posted the link publicly) but could not get into the online waiting room. The white page showed up and connection was spooling for a good 15 minutes.

After awhile, the message, "We are sorry, but the EPIC online waiting room has reached capacity and it is unlikely that badges are still available." Well, that's that then.

SDCC 2013: Countdown to Open Online Registration on February 16, 9am PST

This is it.

The most dramatic pre-comic convention event is coming in less than 14 days. On February 16th, 9 am PST, badges for the San Diego Comic-Con will go on sale!

Badges are only available during the day via an online registration site. The actual link of which, will be emailed to potential registrants at least 48 hours before.

Those who had passes for last year's convention were able to participate in the pre-registration in August 2012. A few of Red Dot Diva's friends were lucky to score badges for themselves then. As Comic-Con registration rules went, she was not able to get one at that time because she had a press pass last year.

There has been no further news about when returning press will be able to register for their passes, other than the opportunity being available in "Spring 2013". Red Dot Diva admits that the suspense is killing her. For one thing, there are international flights that has to be booked early! Argh!

SDCC 2013 Pre-Registration: Did Passes Sell Out Again?

Making changes to the registration process is what Comic-Con's organizers tend to do in recent times.

After the insane long lines for registration in 2011 for 2012's passes, they have decided to do away with on-site pre-registration entirely.

Instead, people who had paying tickets for 2012's Comic Con, received an email informing them that online pre-registration would be held today, 4th August at 8 am PST, via their EPIC member login.

Many of Red Dot Diva's friends were poised nervously online, all ready to hit their fingers on the keyboard to join the almost Olympic sport of SDCC-registration.

Geeky Conversations For A Cause at Nerd HQ 2012!

NERD HQ 2012.

It was *the* schedule that SDCC attendees and fellow Nerds/ Nerdettes were eagerly looking out for!

After SDCC released their official schedules last week, Red Dot Diva and her friends were going crazy, and on edge waiting for more Nerd HQ information. Red Dot Diva's hair was all ready to fall out in agonized anticipation!

Finally, about a day ago, the Nerd Machine (founded by "Chuck" star Zachary Levi and his good friend Dave Coleman) released a sneak preview of what Nerd HQ's Conversations for a Cause panels are being slated for this year's NerdHQ.

SDCC 2012: Cancel All Plans! Stay By Your Computers!

A couple of days ago, the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) folks sent out emails to everyone who has a Member ID advising them to keep watch about the opening of online registrations, which will be happening REAL SOON.

On their General Information page, they mentioned that "badge sales will begin sometime after the Comic-Con Member ID registration website closes on February 28th, 2012."

So, for those who haven't got a pre-reg ticket at last year's convention... it's time to get your act together and prepare to snap up those passes! CANCEL All Plans!! And Stay By your Computers!

Tickets do sell out *really* quickly. And there will be a very high probability that the servers may stall and get jammed with the insane amount of traffic.

SDCC 2012: Barcoded and Ticketed.... and other convention news

Nothing would make a geek girl's weary workday instantaneously brighter other than an email that begins with, "Dear Comic-Con Attendee, Your Comic-Con 2012 registration is complete!"

It sure made Red Dot Diva go W00t-Woot when she saw those sentences in her inbox this morning.

With that precious online 4-day ticket (with preview day), she's all nicely barcoded for entry to Comic-Con 2012 at San Diego on 11-15 July next year!!

What's left about SDCC 2012 is the major question about accommodation, as most hotels in San Diego say that they are "on hold" during SDCC week.
