Oz Comic-Con Weekend: Huge!
Posted on April 13, 2015
It’s so exciting to announce the involvement of Game Truck Australia with Oz Comic-Con Adelaide this weekend – it is going to be huge! Not since the Tour Down Under have I had the chance to share the truck with so many people, and this event is just perfect for it.
Oz Comic-Con is the premier destination for popular culture fans in Australia. It features celebrity guests from top shows for panels, photographs, and signings, not to mention author events, a show floor, cosplay competitions and more. This year we can expect to see more game culture more within the show, which is perfect for the likes of us.
Most exciting of all, I will be representing the publisher 2K Games at the show. 2K are the publishers of recent hit Evolve and two of my own favourite franchises, Bioshock and Borderlands. However at this show we’ll be showcasing NBA 2K15, the genre-defining basketball game, as well as WWE 2K15 for some manic wrestling fun.
I can also announce an upgrade to the Game Truck’s consoles: we will be running Xbox Ones at Oz Comic-Con. 2K wanted their games to be shown in the best new-gen quality, and since my customers have often asked for the next generation of consoles it was a great time to upgrade. This will be a permanent addition, meaning that all parties and events from now will have the opportunity to play on Xbox Ones.
Finally, we are using the weekend as an opportunity to team up with our favourite Adelaide bar, Austin & Austin, for the Oz Comic-Con Adelaide opening party. The truck will be available up in Austin street (just out the front of the bar) from 7pm until about 10pm and the Austin guys will be playing smooth tracks and pouring great drinks as usual. If this goes down well it may be a model we pursue, meaning that you might see more events there in future. Imagine a regular Game Truck night at Austin & Austin.
All up, this weekend looks like it is going to be totally epic, which is great, because it’s what the truck was built for. If you are around on Friday night or for the main event on the weekend, be sure to drop by and have a game! See you in the truck!
