I went to the Make Games SA meet up last night in Joburg. It was a smaller turnout than normal, in a ridiculously freezing room, but it was all worthwhile because I saw a trailer that made me really psyched about a local game. I've already supported it on Greenlight, and after payday I'll be throwing money at their Kickstarter. You should, too.

Cape Town, you get a bum deal when it comes to conventions. rAge is exclusive to Johannesburg and the less said about last year’s Comic Con fiasco, the better. What you do get however, is UCON. And it all kicks off in March.
Why so many people want to move to Australia is beyond me, if you want to live in a nanny state with nice beaches and still have some slight freedom then you may as well move to Cape Town. In another stunning act of stupidity the state of South Australia decided it was a good idea to post the following adverts to try and get people to stop gambling.
Over on Facebook, a mini-revolution has been going on. People dissatisfied with existing eSports associations in South Africa have banded together to make a new one. I had a chat with their President, Anthony Nell, to find out more.
Now if that isn’t the best headline I’ve ever come up with I simply don’t know what is...which is ironic since the first bullet point on my content creation slide is “Your headline is your first impression, make it count”
rAge is coming up, and I think I'm most excited about getting my hands on some vibrating triggers. But I'm second most excited about meeting all our awesome community! Okay fine, I'm actually most excited to meet you lot - but don't tell the guys because it will ruin my street cred.
We’ve said it before, but we don’t say it enough: You guys frikkin’ rock. Most people would complain endlessly about having to get up at the crack of noon to write gaming news. Not us though? Because we love you guys. And behind the monitors, you’re all rad to each other as well. Here’s where you Capetonians can meet up and talk about your flat mountain.
As we announced earlier this week we’re all going to head over to Hogshead at Rock Cottage on Saturday the 5th of October at 4pm to have a community meet up after a long day at rAge and you are all obviously invited.
It is time to report the results of the Cape Town Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 regional tournament!
Organised Chaos is the most popular LAN in Cape Town; they’ve had amazing events in the past and are attempting to keep it up. They’ve been one of the biggest names in local LAN’s for a very long time and this April, they’ll be making a ninja out of all their attendants.
Yep that’s right! If you live in Cape Town you could stand a chance to win R5000 by doing what you love; gaming. MainGaming and Megarom present the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Roadshow.

Friday nights in Cape Town are usually spent in the consumption of cheap boxed wine and playing stab-tag with broken bottle heads. However, just like the MWeb Battlefield 3 launch of the week before, this past Friday night I found myself at the launch of 2upgamers, in the esteemed company of some highly passionate gamers, who are on a mission to put the Cape Town gaming community on the proverbial map.
It was an outstanding evening of interesting discussion, great laughs, fun games and lots of pizza.
