A quick tour of rAge 2015

This weekend marks the start of the biggest gaming expo in Africa (we should probably confirm that at some point, but we’re just going to assume it is because we’re amazing). Despite being open from today already, we know many of you will only make your way to this year’s rAge Expo either tomorrow or Sunday. Before you climb into your car and make the drive to the deadly oven known as The Dome, here’s an idea of what’s on offer, and what you can expect to see.

As always, there are a ton of games to play. When I did my first tour of the expo, I was disappointed to see that there wasn’t much in terms of unreleased titles. On closer inspection though (see: wondering around aimlessly for many hours), I’ve now realized that there are actually a good few awesome games on offer. Here’s what I’ve seen so far:

  • Cuphead
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops III
  • The Division
  • Assassins Creed Syndicate
  • Rainbow Six Siege
  • Just Cause 3
  • Guitar Hero Live
  • Star Wars Battlefront

Obviously, there are many other games to enjoy – those that are available at retail already. If you’re still undecided as to whether you should buy a title or not, rAge is probably the best place to make the decision. I’ve seen the likes of Mad Max, The Uncharted Collection, NBA2K16, Disney Infinity, Skylanders Superchargers, Metal Gear Solid V, and a whole lot more.

If you’re more interested in the hardware side of things, there are a ton of specials to enjoy. Graphics cards, motherboards, and all of that shiny tech stuff are certainly here. You may just have to do a bit of wondering around to find the best deal if you are looking to buy something.

Speaking of wondering around, be wary of other Lazygamer readers. I found a bunch of them…

Community

Somehow, I managed to escape without so much as a cabbage retort, or a shearing of my mop of hair. Awww, you all do love me!

Anyways, before I dash off to see MORE stuff, here’s a bunch of snaps I managed to grab between all of the crowd jostling

If you’re here today or tomorrow and you see any of us, please say hi. We most certainly don’t bite (Darryn might though), and we would love to say hello to all of your faces. Otherwise, don’t forget we are having a community meet tomorrow evening. Enjoy the expo, and we will see you there!

Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    • oVg

      Bwahahahaha looks like Rince has scored ๐Ÿ˜›

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        You mean RinC-3PO?

        • oVg

          The wookie in the middle. Im not sure where his right hand is.

          • Grand Admiral Chief

            CANNOT UNSEE

        • BEEP!

      • lol Shame, don’t insult her ๐Ÿ™‚

        • oVg

          i was talking about the dude ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Why do you say that?

      I’ve never gone, but still plan to.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Mostly to insult Rince ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • So basically if you two are in the same room or dome in this case it’s the end of the world?

          • Commander JJ of the Normandy

            I’ve been there.
            It’s scary.

          • And you survived, how?

          • Commander JJ of the Normandy

            Just barely.

          • You survived a immense feat

            Lol Your a inspiration to us all but are you sure you don’t have PTSD?

          • Commander JJ of the Normandy

            Possibly.

    • VampyreSquirrel

      You’re just jealous.

    • Commander JJ of the Normandy

      This is excellent

  • Weanerdog

    The Cape Town community is definitely a better looking bunch, but that might be because Rince is now in JHB.

    • Pariah

      Wow. 2 irrefutable burns in one week.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      I don’t think they realise he’s there. They look happy.

      • VampyreSquirrel

        That’s because he has stolen their souls already and are under his control… O.o

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          It’s not too late for you. Don’t go!

    • Commander JJ of the Normandy

      I agree with this.

      • Mary Gonzalez

  • Soooo uhm anybody at LG willing to call dibs on that mhm Vaultboy for me.

    We could do a random.org with only 1 name on it :p

    • Commander JJ of the Normandy

      That Vault boy is incorrect according to the original usage of that pose.
      So no thanks.

      • Mmmmm Didn’t notice that, I just saw Fallout and went crazy, My Fat Man looks great on display:p and hopefully soon my pipboy ๐Ÿ˜›

        • Brady miaau

          Yeah, well, I walk around with My Fat Man.

          Or something. Man, not even drinking. Sorry.

          • Commander JJ of the Normandy

            Better than calling it a pipboy, I suppose.

          • Brady miaau

            Even I could not tell that big a lie with a straight face.

            My boep is enormousness, dammit.

          • It’s okay, would be nice if you could pour a drink into the fatman now that would be awesome

  • Commander JJ of the Normandy

    I spot an Admiral. And a Rincey creature.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      There’s one of the movies’ writers as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Grand Admiral Chief

      xD

  • DragonSpirit009

    So… who’s who? I have no idea what some of you people look like!

    • Pariah

      The ugly one in the front is Rince. The rest all look the same to me.

    • oVg

      They are all Banana Jim.

      • Commander JJ of the Normandy

        He lives, in the eyes of every Lazygamer, in the heart of every platform.

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Except iOs. He said Siri is a bitch.

          • Commander JJ of the Normandy

            That’s because she’s a know-it-all

    • Commander JJ of the Normandy

      I only recognize a few.
      I’d also like someone to give us a proper description here.

      • Guild

        Tracy, Myself, Rince, Sage, Iron, Nikola, KTM, Admiral and Hammer

        • Commander JJ of the Normandy

          Ah. Thanks. That helps. Now I know what some of you people actually look like.

    • Commander JJ of the Normandy

      I don’t think anyone will say, because there’s one or two people on there that each of us might not recognise and we don’t want to offend anyone by not knowing who they are. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • VampyreSquirrel

        I’ve met 4 or 5 of them… can only name 2 of them though because I’m shit with remembering names.

        • Commander JJ of the Normandy

          Since they’re mostly inland people, I only recognise a few.

        • DragonSpirit009

          I’m useless with names and face so I guess asking who is who won’t help much XD

        • oVg

          Is the dude with the beard the wookie? Van Helson I think.

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Nope, Valshen’s not in that pic.

    • Guild

      Now that the weekend is over, the people in the pic are myself, Rince, Admiral, Sage, Iron, KTM, Hammer, Nikola and Tracy.

  • oVg

    look at all those muscles. I thought gamers were skinny kids with spots ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      That’s just the esports pros, because of all the… medication.

    • Commander JJ of the Normandy

      Been seeing to much of Trevor lately, I assume.

      • oVg

        Those PC gamers man, always upgrading their rigs.

        • Commander JJ of the Normandy

          We’d bench the rigs for exercise, but then we might get dust in them.

          • oVg

            Trev uses Windhoek lager to intercool his GPU

          • Commander JJ of the Normandy

            Sounds possible.

  • Splooshypooh

    Wont be going to the Expo, just got my hands on my copy of FIFA! So thats my weekend sorted, now just to get the fixin’s for nachos. And the Hogshead break on Sat night ๐Ÿ˜€

    • oVg

      • Splooshypooh

        Hmm?

        • oVg

          Be honest, you were going to RAGE then that scary photo got posted ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Brady miaau

    CommentBots like more and more real all the time!

    ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Commander JJ of the Normandy

          LOL

        • Hammersteyn

          Bwahahaha!

  • Well RAGE was fun but now I am tired and broke.

  • Nikola

        • Guild

          I don’t think my liver could survive another braai. I blame Gavin XD

          • Nikola

            Yeah It’s easy to blame Gavin buuuuut who brought out the Jaggermeister hey and started with the whole shots nonsense???

          • Grand Admiral Chief

            *Jรคgermeister

          • Nikola

            hahahaha here we go again! I am surprised you didn’t give me a lesson in English at Rage! LOL

          • Grand Admiral Chief

            xD

          • Grand Admiral Chief

            And thanks for supporting our brand, the more people that drink Jรคgermeister, the better servers I can buy!

          • Guild

            I was impressed with Darren who has never ever had any alcohol with us, had 2 shots of Jรคgermeister. He was pissed after the first one. Definitely entertaining and crazy evening

          • Grand Admiral Chief

            Shit, now I’m angry I missed this!!!!!

          • Just one? I would have thought after sniffing all that lighter fluid he would be able to get 3 in atleast xD

          • Guild

            Sage started with the Tequila to be fair XD

          • Nikola

            Hahaha yeah he took it to a new level:)

      • Ir0nseraph

        And well done on claiming another Destiny soul, o wait I don’t think he has one.

        • Guild

          XD He is sooo hooked. I told Rince to be careful loading up Destiny on my PS4.

          • Nikola

            I think you should work for Bungie not only did u manage to convince Nic to get PS+ you also made him play Destiny that takes skillz!

          • Guild

            He sank about 12 hours into it at my place. I had family come visit and they didn’t even realize he was there XD

          • Grand Admiral Chief

            O_O

    • Hammersteyn

      Ditto

  • Rince and the Admiral in one pic? Wow

    • Grand Admiral Chief

      After finally meeting him in person, he is actually not so bad, contrary to popular belief

      • I’ve met him too. At rAge2014. Fairly cool bloke. Had loads of fun jamming splatoon with him ๐Ÿ˜›

        • Grand Admiral Chief

          So….exchanging fluids with Rince eh?…

  • Milesh Bhana

    Zoe walked right past me, but as I was about to greet her I was handed an Occulus Rift headset that I’d just waited about 30 minutes to get my hands on.
