SA Gaming News Wrap


There’s really only one major event (made up of three components) that was on everyone’s lips this past week. rAge. There are a few things coming up now that the really Awesome gaming expo is over. So let’s keep you informed shall we?

rAge 2013

This year’s edition of rAge is getting more in depth coverage elsewhere on the site, so we’ll just direct you to the photographs and mention that while the next-generation of consoles are imminent, last year’s edition of rAge felt a better one than this. There was plenty to enjoy, but the selection of games on display was a bit of a disappointment, but the cosplay this year was outstanding. But, as always, it was good to see a few old friends, as well as meet a few new ones.

The photos (kinda) in chronological order:

For an alternative take on this year’s rAge, you can check out the tattoo themed photos by Pricked in SA. You might spot a zombie. Or at least zombie limbs.

Keep your eye out for interviews and coverage of specific elements over the coming days.
