Surrey – The Taco Bell Fill Up On Game Gear Tour truck stopped at the Kennedy Heights Taco Bell tonight, to the delight of several young gamers. They were able to try out the $10 000.00 NovelQuest Emperor 1510 game chair – with its three screens, incredible sound and very comfy race car chair (and base model price of $4950.00 + shipping). The truck was also loaded with Gunnar gamer shades, Razer peripherals, Headplay V-R units, Nokia phones, and of course FUOGGhats and shirts.
It was great to finally meet up with Ryan and Craig of Halophax – it’s just too bad they didn’t have more time out here on the coast so that we could get them on some studio tours and take them around to meet the awesome people who make up the Vancouver game development community. It was appropriate that the game being used to demo the Emperor today was EA Blackbox’s Need for Speed Shift, though – being on the west coast and all.
You still have one more chance to check out the chair before it heads back to the east coast, though. The FUOGG Tour will be stopping at the Taco Bell in Coquitlam’s Pinetree Village (2991 Lougheed Hwy) on Saturday October 17 from 5 – 8pm before hitting the road again. If you make it out to Coquitlam, ask Craig about his airbrushing experience, I’m sure he’d love to share the details with you.
