We didn’t have quite the chance to talk about this brand new geek event in London yet. But now the time has come, and we’re glad to inform you that tonight a new REZtron night is going to rock East London.

What is it exactly? We’ve been there at the very first event, but we prefer to use their very own word to describe it. So basically, REZtron is a Pop Up Japanese Retrotainment brand inspired by the fusion of 80’s chic, Japanese ethics and retrogaming.

REZtron’s first Japanese retrotainment was launched on August the 14th at the award winning cocktail bar, Hoxton Pony in London’s retro-chic district of Shoreditch.
Yep, all nice words and speeches, but what exactly they have there? Here the list of all the “SEGASM” (as they call it):
• Master System
• Mega Drive
• Mega CD/32X
• Saturn
• Dreamcast
• Game Gear
Not bad at all! Here’s more pics from the previous events.

The making of Metal Gear Rising murals

7 Mar

Surely you still remember the amazing and huge murals made by End Of The Line in London, Liverpool and Leeds for the launch of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Well the game is now out (and it’s amazing) and Konami decided to release a video “making of” of the three graffiti. Enjoy (and expect some heavy dubstep).

Tired of all these Metal Gear Rising trailers? Yep, the new title from Platinum Games looks awesome and all, but Konami felt that its new masterpiece (we hope it will be, because Platinum guys are cool and talented) deserve some more hype…

That’s why EndOfTheLine, a company based in East London focused on producing huge murals and cutting edge installations, has been contacted by the Japanese software house to perform some graffiti about Raiden in three UK cities.

You can find these pieces of art in Ropewalks Square in Liverpool (where the above pics were taken), Sclater Street in London’s Shoreditch and Aire Street in Leeds. The artworks aren’t quite finished yet, but by tomorrow the should be.

EndOfTheLine guys are quite famous for this kind of campaigns, indeed they used to work within the video games industry quite a lot. Check their portfolio to see some of their best work to date.

This is the kind of advertisement we like!
