Come Cosplay A Zombie At DBNGamers This Friday
There are a few reasons why you should head to DBNGamers this Friday, if you’re from Durban.
The first of these is obvious; you’re bloody well obligated to support local gaming because it supports you more than you know.
- You’ll Be Able To Play (Expensive) PS2 Games On Your PS4 Now | 2 months ago
- Jessica Jones Disempowers Its Male Characters And The Effect Is Refreshing | 2 months ago
- Hell Is 30 000 Deathclaws Tearing Through Boston And It’s Glorious | 2 months ago
- Sony Santa Monica Is Teasing Something Truly Strange | 2 months ago
The second reason, and usually the guiding reason for many, is that there will be cool giveaways which means you can leave with things (or people, I guess) you didn’t arrive with. Everyone loves winning things!
But more specific to this particular DBNGamers, which I believe to be the fifteenth although I stand corrected, I’ve lost count (take it as a compliment, Pieter), is the third reason, which is that this event is going to be themed around everyone’s favourite: zombies! Who doesn’t love zombies, really? If it’s not The Walking Dead, or Zombieland, or Shaun of the Dead, it’s Dead Rising, Resident Evil or… and to the point, Dead Island. This month’s DBNGamers event is going to be themed around zombies to coincide with Dead Island: Riptide’s launch.
As such, you can expect to see Apex Interactive, the local distributors of Deep Silver published titles (such as Dead Island: Riptide) as well as Mountain Dew, who feel themselves adequate to the task after spending far too much time dying in DayZ. There might also be other sponsors appearing, but those are the ones we know for sure, right now.
Further, and here is the fourth reason, for the first time since inception (the creation of DBNGamers, not the movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio) DBNGamers will be held at a closed venue, specifically the Westville Athletic Club, on Maryland Drive. That’s right, no more crowded restaurants filled with judging faces, now it’s just gamers and gaming enthusiasts, and of course, the odd curious passer by. Everyone’s welcome, no judgement. Unless it’s Gears of course, in which case it’s spelled ‘Judgment’ for some odd reason, silly People Can Fly…
The main attraction for the event is of course the zombie cosplay, where attendees are tasked with cosplaying either their favourite zombie or a survivor from Dead Island: Riptide. I’ll be cosplaying myself since I’d totally survive an actual zombie apocalypse based on all my gamer knowledge, leadership skills and how little I actually eat. However that’s not all, thanks to Apex Interactive being around, gamers will get a chance to check out and maybe even play some as yet unreleased titles. I’m holding thumbs for Metro: Last Light, myself.
If you’re interested in attending, and really if you’re from Durban and a gamer or cosplayer then why wouldn’t you, then you need to head over to the Facebook event page and check that you’re going. This is so the organisers can adjust accordingly for attendance figures since Mountain Dew has limited caches of the free liquid supplies they’ll be offering to everyone. Because of course when the zombies come, we’ll need the rest…
You can also get full scheduling and directions off that Facebook event page, so definitely check if out if you’re keen. And I’ll see you all there. Bring help…
