VR-Zone Wins in Singapore
VR-Zone comes out the winner from the Media and Amateur gamers invited to Intel’s Asia Gaming Playoff in Singapore at the Geek Terminal.
Intel invited us to go head-to-head against other media and amateur gamers on Thursday, 25 September at the Geek Terminal. I faced off against 7 other competitors, all of which I did not know but that did not matter. I was out there to have some fun and to see just how well I could stand up to the younger gamers who have amazing finger reflexes when it comes to gaming. I am probably much better than them when it comes to touch typing but that is not what we were there to do.
The other competitors:
Shawn and Kelvin Chua representing www.sheylara.com
Isaac Tay from www.ian.onthereddot.com
Linda Haziz and Vivian from www.clicktokill.net
Mohd Sham from www.mhisham.org
Julian Low from www.zopim.com
Rule #1: Don’t intentionally kick out the power for your PC, disconnect from the game in progress, taunt your opponent (I made that up)…and what do I do in my first match-up in Fifa08? I accidentally kicked the plug for the router. The Geek Terminal uses the Eubiq power sockets which are not too foot friendly. However, in their defense I don’t think the product was designed to be located on the floor.
So, was I disqualified? I was not and we had to play another intense round of Fifa08. I am not a football fan (I call it soccer) so I was never too sure about shooting, passing, tackling, etc. After a quick run down of what keys did what I was in the game.
