Back on Wednesday, August 29th, I was in attendance (with VIP access, because I “rolls” like that) at the first-ever, open-to-the-public GameStop PowerUp Rewards EXPO at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas, which marked MY VERY FIRST GAME CONVENTION EVER!! Plus, I got my chance to finally meet WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler (after calling him out on Twitter). The videos below contain images and footage of games I’ve seen and/or played, from:
Sport Champions 2, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royal, God of War Ascension, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Dishonored, Ni No Kuni, Injustice, Assassin’s Creed 3 (& Liberation), Rayman Legends (on WiiU), Nintendoland, Dead of Alive 5, Halo 4, Little Big Planet Karting, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, Tomb Raider, Hitman: Absolution, Aliens: Colonial Marines, WWE ’13, and more!
