To the Expo

Public transportation:

I haven been there with the public transportation, but it seemed to be close to the convention.

Location:

At Cureghem Brussel, a part of Brussels where we have been experiencing some incidents lately. luckely there is a safe parking place where you can park your car.

The Expo

Staff/crew:
The staff was very friendly.

Child friendly:
Indeed! It is a candyshop for the kids. Games, games, and more games.

Games:
From the first game made to the latest game releases. Daily there are new games being added.

Personal Evaluation

When I stepped in the expo, I felt like being a kid again. All those games that had to be played and for free. Luckely there wasn’t that much people that day that we bearly didn’t have to wait to play games. I really have blast.

You were able to play the really old games like pong, pacman, shooters, … and also very new ones like Assassin’s creed and Tekken.

Also some weird Japanese games were present :p
Sadly there were a few games not present like house of the dead.
If you aren’t a gamer then I wouldn’t advise to go to this expo.

If you have the chance to visit this I would go if I were you!

    Hey,

    Great news that you had a good time at the expo!
    I’d just like to add that we installed Heavy Rain yesterday (http://www.heavyrainps3.com) so Assassin’s Creed 2 isn’t the latest game we have at the expo ;) . Heck, Heavy Rain isn’t even out here yet.
    We’re constantly adding more games so if you’re in to the latest and greatest you should think about coming again :D .

    As for the note you have about the location. The venue is indeed located in Cureghem, a part of Brussels where we have been experiencing some incidents lately. I would like to point out that the free parking is gated and secured by a guard though. The subway station is indeed located right next to the venue and between both there is a well lit and clean connection. So people should be able to feel quite secure when going to or coming from the expo.

    Thank you for spreading the word about the expo!

    Cheers,
    Jeroen for PLAY Belgium
