Video Gamers United ~ A New Con Coming Soon

By
Posted on June 16, 2014 AT 06:00pm

Video Gamers United a new Con coming to Washington DC in August his year. I had the privilege with interviewing the Founder of this new con and I must say he sold me. This is what he describes as “Gamer Heaven” a place on the East Coast more accessible to people in the Mid-Atlantic area of the United States. Planning to reach out to over 30,000 people to attend the con is massive. What sold me was the whole use your Mobile Device as a gun in a Virtual Reality World, you know basically what we all have been asking for.

Of course there is plenty of more things to do. One of my personal favorites is what I like to call nostalgia lane. In the Game Room there will be Systems from Atari to Xbox 360 and PS3. You can walk down all your favorite childhood memories and relive the amazing feeling of Mario back on the NES or take a trip back to the Original Xbox and play Halo: Combat Evolved. But what are video games without a little competition. VGU will host multiple Tournaments with the winner getting a cash prize or maybe even something grander like being a Video Game Character.

That’s not all, what is a Con without Cosplay? You will get to fully dress in the way you like, preferably video game characters (I call Ezio Auditroe). And if you think you got the style to win, just like the Tournaments, there are Cosplay Contest with a prestige panel of known Cosplayers as Judges and maybe even some Special Guest.

My favorite thing about VGU is that they are Charitable part of their proceeds go to Children’s Hospital to fund research and care. You don’t get this now much a day to have a fun and give back to the community at the same time. VGU is truly heaven for us gamers.

VGU will also have plenty of other things to do like Panel Guest and Vendors. Indie Game Developers have a chance to show their stuff off and create traffic for their game. Of course not only Indie Developers will be the only people there. Talks of EA is on its way and other big time Developers. Of course with other Panel Guest such as your very own LADY RAGE from: GAMERS GEEK RADIO.

VGU will be an exciting time and worth your wild. Coming August, this year to Washington DC be sure not to miss it. Who else gets to say they were part of the Grand Opening to the soon to be Greatest Con ever.
