The Heck Is This Dash Con We Keep Hearing About?

dash-con-welcome-to-urine

So, as of late, there has been a lot of controversy around the “Unofficial” tumblr convention, Dash Con, and it’s catastrophic failure as an event. The tale of Dash Con is a very odd one, one that should not exist, and one that should serve as a warning for those that wish to undertake the ordeal of running their own event like this. Dash Con, as a thing that happened, is a cautionary tale of how catastrophically bad things can get when expectations are not met, customers are treated terribly and when there is urine in the ball-pit. Why was there even a ball-pit? So from our massive investigation today, we have come up with a massive list of what … Continue reading

SMASH! 2014 Pumped for Karaoke!

smash-logo-2014

We’ve now passed the first weekend for SMASH! being a month away and so we’d though that we’d share one of the things that we’re pumped for seeing this year. Unlike the gamers, Gundam Building aficionados, or card gamers that we are. One of the biggest things that we’re most excited for this year at SMASH! is the Karaoke Contest! Like, really, who doesn’t love to sing? What’s great about this Karaoke is that it comes in both free-singing and contest flavours. Con-goers, not congoers, will be able to participate in singing around at the designated Karaoke area and have some fun with friends, or even new friends. However, the biggest thing with this is definitely the contest. There’s still … Continue reading

Attack On: Addicted to gaming – Channel 10

vidya-games

Gaming addiction is a serious issue, a very serious issue whereby hundreds of gamers are unable to put down their controller, or keyboard, in order to live a normal and functioning life as a human being. On the other hand, gamers tend to be people that will play games for a couple of hours at a time, have lives, interact with their families and friends and generally be a productive member of society. This news report coming from Channel 10 here in Australia seems to have the two concepts mixed up in their latest piece. What seems to be interesting with this particular scare story is that Channel 10 have dressed this news story up in a nice gown of … Continue reading

John Barrowman Panel – Supanova 2014

captain-jack-blurry-harkness-supanova-2014

This year at Supanova 2014, the amazing John Barrowman was in attendance and played host to an incredibly fun Q&A panel, anchored by himself. Us here at Attack On Gaming were in the audience and were incredibly entertained throughout. For those of you that don’t know who John Barrowman is, he is most notably recognised as the amazing Captain Jack Harkness, from the hit Sci-Fi series, Doctor Who, and its spin-off series Torchwood. Since the Captains debut on Doctor Who, John Barrowman has gone on to utilise the character as a lead in Torchwood. John’s panel was absolutely hilarious, and lewd, right from the get go. This was set when he gave a rather lewd announcement of being the big … Continue reading

hanabee-supanova-2014

This year at Supanova, our favourite Anime distributor, Hanabee, was present with a massive and fun booth. At the event, we had a chat with Karen, whom you might remember from all of their release update videos that they put out every so often. At Supanova, we discuss their latest Video On Demand service, as well as one of our favourite series’ this season, No Game No Life. See below for the full interview. Note: We did ask a question about recent announcements of titles, that was our mess-up. We were referring to this announcement, which feels like it was only announced yesterday. Our bad!
