World of Gaming

With COMEX starting today, we are sure gamers are dying to find out what is in store for them. Not to worry though. We took the time to scour through GAMEX and check out what is in store for you.

Trade-in Console

Have you heard the news that the Xbox One is now offering backward compatibility? You know what that means? You no longer have a reason to hang on to your old Xbox 360. Even if you were a PlayStation fan, there is no harm in upgrading your old PlayStation (PS) 3 for a PS4 now that Sony has introduced the PlayStation Now market.

At GAMEX, you can now bring over your old consoles and have them traded in. You can head to their website and have a look at how much your old console is worth here.

Build Your Own Rig

If it is one thing that PC gamers love more than a good game, it is a good rig. A large part of the PC gaming culture is the ability to get down and dirty and creating your own do-it-yourself (DIY) rig. If you are not yet in the know, then let us teach you how!

Our trainers over at the Build Your Own Rig Workshop, will go through with you step-by-step and teach you what each part does, as well as what you need to build a proper gaming rig. That is not all. The workshop will also be holding a timed competition, where the fastest person to build their PC will walk home with what they have built!

Intimidated? Well, maybe you can take a cue from the booth babes over from the Monster booth.

The girls will be taking on the trainers in a little switch-a-roo of roles, where they will try to assemble their own rigs faster than the trainers can sell the Monster drinks. It should make for some pretty interesting spectating. 

Featured Games

This year marks GAMEX's inaugural launch, and what better way to do it than to showcase some of the most anticipated games on the market? Here is a list of featured games that you should definitely have a look at.

Playstation 4

The Playstation booth will be featuring some of the most exciting games this year.

A PS4 and PC exclusive, the Street Fighter V (Beta) will be making its way to GAMEX this year at the Playstation booth.

The long awaited update to the most popular fighting game in history makes its mark at GAMEX. If you did not get a chance to sign up for the Beta version, here is your chance to have a go at the game. Its buggy multiplayer has since been updated, so do drop by and have a look.

Definitely not one to miss if you are a fan of Hideo Kojima's works, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the fifth instalment of this award-winning series. It is a strong contender for the Game of the Year awards in 2015 (GOTY), and will be on sale at COMEX 2015. As newly released as it is, it is already making strong claims to be the greatest stealth game ever made, which considering the list of games that are on the list, is a huge claim. So do check it out!

Xbox One

Over at the Xbox booth, you can catch more exciting releases.

Console exclusive, Gears of War, was released nine years ago, and this HD remastered edition is still drawing raves today. Similarly, cult-favourite, Mortal Kombat X will rejoice at the return of the latest instalment of this gore-heavy fighting game on their consoles. Both titles will be on sale at the Xbox booth, so check them out!

That's not all. Sports fans can also rejoice! The wildly popular FIFA 16 will be on pre-order exclusively at the Xbox booth. Ole!

PC

Alliance of Valiant Arms (AVA)

Developed by local gaming giant, GARENA, this Massively Multiplayer Online Game will be holding mini competitions, and participants will be able to win Razer products and AVA merchandise.
