Gamepolis 2015 – review & gallery

Gamepolis took place last weekend. The main novelty in this third edition was the area dedicated to indie developers. Don’t miss the review by SEGAKU, that also comes with a huge gallery!

It wasn’t my first time at the event. I went with a regular pass on its first edition two years ago, and it was quite disappointing since the only focus of interest was Youtubers and LOL competitions. There were barely any booths, the place was extremely packed and had barely any activity outside of the panels. However, the event has grown bigger and better ever since. I was positively surprised and, despite some incidents, I can say it was really good in the end.

Insert Coin documentary

One of the activities planned for PlayFest is the showing of the documental Insert Coin, presented by David García, that talks about the creative process of videogames in Spain. This documental could be made thanks to crowdfunding donations and will be showcased in the PlayFest festival.

Japanese culture events have been multiplying all over Spain in the last years. They have been increasing popularity, bigger, attendees.

Blitzage: debut as opening act for Visage (March 22 – 23, 2014)

A few weeks ago we talked about a new band called Blitzage, lead by Akira Yamaoka. Last weekend they debuted in a concert, being opening act for the legendary band Visage. Both bands played on Saturday and Sunday, and I found someone who told me first hand how Blitzage’s debut went. Walter, who went to one of the concerts with his wife Loreley, tells us about this event.
