gamerdisco london shoreditch

Yup, last week we told you about Gamerdisco, an unique gaming/clubbing experience in London, and last night we’ve actually been there!

As promised there was music, like 90′s, electro, hip hop, chiptune and gaming themes as well plenty of games (both new and retro) to play.

The event, held at The Book Club in London’s Shoreditch, featured also free-to-all prized tournaments on Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed (X360), Super Mario Kart (SNES), Marvel vs Capcom 3 (PS3) and Street Fighter vs Tekken (X360). We tried the Super Mario Kart one, but please just don’t ask….LoL

Obviously the cozy atmosphere (did we mention the free-entry?) of the venue offered also quite-cheap booze and other stuff you can usually find in a typical East London’s pub/club, like pool tables, arcade cabinets and other relaxing furnitures.

It was a great experience and we are looking forward to join the next event!

We also tried to take some pics, but the low lights (and the alcohol) didn’t help to our purpose. Anyway take a look at them.

Posh party? NO WAY! Video Games downstairs!

Gamer Disco: An Arcade For Adults

30 Jan

As we already told you, That Damn Pixel is not your typical video games blog. In fact we blog about everything vg-related we like.

This time we’d like to let you know about a very interesting event called Gamer Disco! Too good to be true? Nah…believe your eyes!

What’s that? Well, it’s an unique gaming/clubbing experience in London. Bringing the video games out of the bedroom to the big screen in a club, like watching a football match in the pub with your mates, but actually being a part of the live action with your friends, drinking, dancing, gaming and partying! (just for using the creators words).

Curious? Wait to know what’s in the upcoming event!

“From the team who brought you Nintendisco comes the new monthly club night GamerDisco, a truly social video gaming event!

This month featuring the brilliant Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed where your driving skills could bag you some great Sonic The Hedgehog prizes, including some rather swanky spiky blue Sonic hats all thanks to our friends at Sega!

With multi-screen projected gaming from old skool Nintendo to up to date future classics whilst DJs spin 90’s, electro, hip hop, chiptune and gaming themes.

This month features:

DJ JetSet Rory (Chiptune, Jpop, Themes, Wacky)
Habitat83 (Live Electro – First London Gig)

This is a night for both casual button bashers and seasoned pros alike! Free entry, cheap drinks and gaming prizes; ‘an arcade for adults’.

We will be celebrating the upcoming cinema release of Disneys “Wreck it Ralph” with some give-a-ways and a selection of the soundtrack being DJ’d!

Expect MarioKart & StreetFighter 2 competitions with prizes and also some SFxT and MvC3 casual button bashing!”

AWESOME! Isn’t it? Interested? Living in London?

Next event will be on Wednesday, February 6, 2013 at The Book Club, 100 – 106 Leonard Street, Hoxton and Shoreditch, London, EC2A 4RH, UK
