Gamestart Asia 2015: Where Diva Explored The World of Gaming


Gamestart Asia 2015 kicked-off with a bang yesterday at Suntec Convention Centre.


There was a grand official ribbon-cutting ceremony by special guests and an industry/ business conference.


The gaming convention occupied 2 halls this year, which offered far more space for fans to wander and try out the gamut of titles available.

Red Dot Diva (together with Ed from Toys-etc and Andre the Red Dot Dude) was at the Media Preview yesterday and from the looks of it, this year's convention had definite buzz to it.

The SMRT Circle Line Gets A Disney Makeover!

Three of Disney's and Marvel's most popular movies have now arrived at the SMRT Circle Line!

If you are one of those who commute on the Circle Line often, you would already have gotten "Frozen" or went into Hydra mode at seeing Captain America's shield. Or maybe even have the urge to go Pew Pew Pew when sitting in the "Star Wars"-themed carriage.

The train car makeovers are a result of an 18-month collaboration between Disney and SMRT. Besides having carriages decorated with characters and iconic symbols from "Frozen", "The Avengers" and "Star Wars", the promotion also extends to SMRT's other retail and digital networks of Disney's brand and franchises, including activities held at the Kallang Wave Mall.

Anderson Cooper Debuts ... In A Marvel Comic "Black Widow #12"!

Gotta admit. Besides those very bicepstuous Ice Bucket Challenge videos appearing on her social timelines, Red Dot Diva gave out a Big Squee after reading this hot piece of news that was already in her email inbox when she woke up yesterday morn.

Two reasons for the Big Squee:
1. The email was an official press release from Marvel Entertainment. Red Dot Diva has been requesting to be on Marvel's PR list for a darn long time. Does this mean she's now *on* the list? Hmmm.... Time will tell.

2. Was that the silver foxy name of Anderson Cooper in the press release byline? *Diva read it over again twice* Oh my Mjolnir... Yes! It seems that Anderson Cooper is not only an insightful journalist and TV personality well-known for his live coverage and investigation of current topics of interest, he is also a big comic book fan!

The current anchor of CNN’s "Anderson Cooper 360°" will be digging out the hidden secrets, red herrings and truths about the Avengers' team member, the enigmatic ex-KGB operative and skilled assassin, Black Widow.

ILM Singapore's VFX Puts The Smash Into "The Avengers"

Making gazillions of fanboys and fangirls all over the world squee with utter delight, Joss Whedon's fun take on Marvel's "The Avengers" movie has now crossed the hallowed USD 1 billion mark in the worldwide box office.

This would not have been possible, if there were no uniquely creative and hardworking VFX artists involved in various segments of the superhero ensemble film. For "The Avengers", the digital magic was done by ILM, the fore-runner of all things VFX!

Last Saturday at The Cathay, ILM Singapore hosted a VFX talk about "The Making of The Avengers" and special screening of the movie in 3D, to a group of polytechnic/ university students and faculty teachers as part of their drive to get more talent into Jedi Masters Program, an apprentice-training initiative.

FCBD 2012: Avengers Movie Night, Special Guest Signings and Comic Books (Free Of Course, Duh!)

It is less than 2 weeks away to Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) 2012!

This special day is held on the 1st Saturday of May every year, and this year, Red Dot Island comic book fans are all set to celebrate the festivities on May 5th.

So far, "geek-boy-centric" comics book store GnB Comics has been the earliest to announce their FCBD guests and activities.

From 10 am to 1pm on 5th May, two special guests will be making an appearance for signings at their store at Block 1, Rochor Center, #02-500. Red Dot Diva says one will not be able to miss the shop. It will be the one with the longest line outside and a few cosplayers lurking around!

And.... if you are a DC fan, you would be over the moon for this year's FCBD. This is because GnB's special guests are comic book artists Nicola Scott and Ardian Syaf!

Assembled! For the Avengers World Premiere in LA!

Ever fancy yourself strolling down a red carpet?

Well, Red Dot Diva's celeb-shoulder-rubbing glamourista pal Chelle managed to attend a red carpet premiere in Hollywood again recently. And this time, it was for the superhero movie most geeks have been waiting for - "The Avengers"!

Here is her account of the wonderful night amongst the stars.

On Wednesday, April 11th, I was lucky enough to be able to attend the red carpet premiere of "The Avengers" at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood.

The day started out kinda chilly and rainy but as soon as we gathered at the barriers, the rain had pretty much gone away. Even though we didn’t need to stand at the barriers, Laura and I thought that it would be fun to hang out with fellow tumblr/ twitter friends including THE Godofbadassery who I think is a really cool sweet girl. We hung out till around 3pm and then headed back to my house (which was thankfully close to the theater) to get ready for our Avengers Adventure.

NYCC 2011: Diva's Stalking Schedule Is Shaping Up!

The NYCC 2011 countdown begins! Only 19 days away!!

And this week, the full panel schedule was finally announced, with some interesting ones that Red Dot Diva will definitely be targetting for.

As NYCC is still primarily a comic convention, it has (thankfully) not been inundated with too much Hollywoody stuff. But if one is so inclined, there are still some cool TV/ movie-related panels to check out!

This is Red Dot Diva's first time at NYCC, so she is trying to balance things out during the convention weekend and trying not to pack too events in her schedule.

However, there are particular panels that Red Dot Diva simply *will not* ... *cannot* miss.
