Yes, we like to stretch ourselves a little, so when Kamimodo eSports Cafe asked us if we were available for a little gaming on 15 November, we said yes. Next time we’ll ask for details first, because quite frankly nobody should be forced to witness a zombie dancing, singing or throwing shapes of any sort.
The event is all about finding the ‘Ultimate Super Star’, and to do that, participants will need to go through a round of peer judgement that would make Idols look tame. Sing in Singstar, dance to Dance Central and grind guitars in Guitar Hero and should you shine brightest (highest scores rule really) through all three, you will be crowned the ‘Ultimate Super Star’ and become SA’s next true entertainer. Or perhaps not.
On the day, we will also be sharing the venue with cosplayer KomboKitten who will be hosting a sequence of workshops on how she gets her cosplay so right. There will also be some Anime screenings later in the night which will be hosted by the UCT’s Genshiken Society. If that wasn’t enough, there will also be a LAN featuring LoL and Dota 2.
The venue serves a wide range of food and (non-alcoholic) drink, including Onigiri and Sushi.
There will be two tickets available for the day:
- R30– Free drink & coffee upon arrival, entry to the crafting workshop, late night anime screening.
- R50– Free drink & coffee upon arrival, entry to crafting workshop & access to Ultimate Super Star Tournament and LAN facilities, late night anime screening
- Craft Workshop.
- DIY Crafting.
- Ultimate Super Star featuring Guitar Hero, Sing Star and Dance Central. Winner will be calculated according to points across the three games.
- Access to LAN featuring LoL and Dota 2.
- Late night anime screenings.
Registrations will be handled on the day.
