The New Guy’s Trip to GStar 2007

11월 9, 2007

I’m Matthew, the newest edition to the PalBee Team. I’ve recently attended the start of GStar 2007, the largest and most anticipated game show in Korea. It is similar to the Tokyo Game Show in Japan and E3 in Los Angeles. I was also able to take a few photos while I was there. There are many interesting innovations and new games that were on display at the show.

It was pretty crowded at the first day of the show.crowds.jpg

Frogster Studios had a gothic booth.frogster3.jpg

NCSoft’s brand PlayNC featured four different titles.hammer-girl.jpg

The second game, Point Blank, was about shooting. point-blank.jpg

Computer games were not the only ones featured at GStar, however:
