New games and consoles appear on the market all the time, but will they stand up to the test of time like so many before them? Retro gaming is always one of the most popular areas of our Gaming Zone with all ages, and London Film and Comic Con will be the place for you to relive some of your much loved gaming experiences.
If you grew up arguing with your friends who was going to be Ryu or Yoshimitsu, you will love the range of fighting games we will have on offer. Challenge your friends to the ultimate rematch, or show the younger generation your skills on your favourite consoles from the past.
While playing Virtua Fighter 2 on the Sega Saturn at a previous event, one of our visitors told us “The older consoles and games still really stand up against the newer ones, plus there’s a level of nostalgia.”
Our rhythm games section is great for families and groups of friends to enjoy gaming together with a less competitive edge. Whether you choose to beat out the rhythm on the bongos with Donkey Konga on the GameCube or keep up with the music with Rock Band on Xbox 360, you’re sure to have retro musical party time.
Sonic the Hedgehog, Mario and Alex Kidd will also be attending alongside other favourite characters from some of the golden years of platform gaming. How fast can your speed Sonic through Emerald Hill Zone and can you still remember which of the pipes take Mario to the bonus levels?
Our Gaming Zone will be the perfect place to relive your memories and get your hands on some of the classic games that you might have missed.
Get hands on with the latest titles on Playstation 4 and Xbox One such as Star Wars Battlefront, Halo 5 and Naruto Shippuden Ninja Storm 4. Have you got a brilliant new move that you want to show your friends, or maybe you just want to try out a new title before you buy it for yourself? The modern gaming section is brilliant for taking five minutes out to relax and recharge with one of your favourite titles or to try out something new.
It’s not just about AAA titles though, there will also be a range of four player Indie games available for you to play with your friends. Gangbeasts, Overruled, Rocket League and Speed Runners will be available on PCs for you to challenge your friends and family to some crazy and fun multiplayer matches.
