Multiplay Insomnia i51 LAN Gaming Event Exhibition
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
We’re back once again at the Insomnia i51 gaming event here in Coventry, enjoying the rather stunning Ricoh arena that Multiplay have chosen for the event. We thought you would love to see some of the things that go on here at the show now that the event is at a new home so let’s take a look at what else you can find on the exhibition show floor.
Xbox One is here this year with their gaming 4×4, which has a huge rack of fold out hi-def screens and Xbox One consoles, great for trying out a big of Titanfall… although not as great as playing it on some of the epic gaming PC’s that are littered around the hall, that is of course if you can get past all the people waiting to play Goat Simulator, which has proven more popular than anything else this weekend, crazy!
As if one gaming bus wasn’t enough, Gamersbus.co.uk are here too, giving the Razer gaming bus a run for its money and offering loads of great titles to play on the inside. Unlike the Razer bus, you can actually rent this bad boy out for your own parties, very tempting.
The latest Square Enix title is a big hit this weekend too, with many gamers eager to get hands on with Nosgoth, so much so that I couldn’t even find a seat for a go myself, but from what I’ve seen, the game is shaping up rather nicely and I can’t wait to check it out in-detail later this year.
One of the most important exhibitors at the show is Special Effect, they’ve done countless great deeds to help those who have suffered physical disabilities, finding innovative ways to allow them to still enjoy the world of computer games. It’s an eyeopening experience to try out some of these purpose build controller yourself. Multiplay as well as many of us here at the show do our part to help them raise the funds they need to support their cause.
Vacant Mind Gaming are here too with this somewhat unique gaming rig, they offer custom builds for those who want something very different from your average gaming chassis. Can’t say I’m all that keen on this design, but I can see the appeal of something a bit different.
Apparently people still want to play Flappy Bird… although I will admit it plays better with a mouse than it does a touch screen.
Pull up a seat at the Chillblast stand and race your heart out on this gorgeous Logitech G25 racing wheel and triple Eyefinity gaming setup.
Oculus Rift is on show once again too, always great fun for a bit of mind-blowing FPS action and with the headset on and goggles on your face, it’s easy to forget the chaos and noise of the show around you.
We’ve still got plenty of great coverage from some of the coolest booths here at the show, so stay tuned for more coverage throughout the day.
