World Cyber Games Kenya Team is here!

In Perspective on October 26, 2009 at 9:22 pm

So, if you’ve been keeping up with things on the Ukwelii Blog, a couple weeks ago, I told you about the WCG Kenya Team Finals happening at the Village Market.

They went down, and we’re pretty successful. For those who were unable to make it, and those who want to cheer the Kenya team, they leave in around 2 weeks for China to represent Kenya at the World Cyber Games.

There’s an official website for Kenya and Facebook group now so you can keep up with all the action.

It was sponsored by D Link, Mecer, The Village Market, and the awesome guys behind The Lwanda Magere Comic,

Don’t forget to check out the video below for all the action from the Village Market.

The event was the first of its kind and is called the NexGen Gaming Tournament.

Seems gaming’s taking good footing in Kenya, I wish Erix, Nathan, Deen and the gang all the best.

WaKenya eeeeeh!!!! WaKenya aaaaaahhhh!!!!

Go Kenya.

Wonder if they’ve got a name – like Shujaa – 7’s team, Chipu – short for Chipukizi – under 20 7’s Rugby team… WCG Gaming Team – Chezo? I don’t know 🙂

World Cyber Games Kenya Team Finals

In Happenings on October 16, 2009 at 2:48 pm

So Kenya’s going to give the World Cyber Games a shot, and they’re putting together a team to represent the nation in the Gaming Olympics, so to speak.

Go Kenya Go!

For any gamers out there, the details below.

Date: 17th of October 2009

Venue:The Village Market Pool Hall

Time: 10 AM to 10 PM

Le Damages:  Ksh. 1,000 for Competitors and Ksh. 100 for Spectators

Games: Starcraft and FIFA ’09

And they’re seriously looking for the best competitors at both.

There’ll also be a couple rounds of Call of Duty 4 (LAN) with some Xbox 360s for those who want to console themselves (pun intended).

Just to let you know a little about the WCG Games – this year’s Prize money is $500,000 so just the same way Kenyans do the marathon, we’re about to run the Gaming world.

Other games to be played at the WCG include Guitar Hero (Why Kenyans aren’t already going crazy over this game, I still don’t know)

It’s been organised by the most passionate Anime fanatics in East Africa (The whole continent in my opinion) – the Anime Anonymous Group on Facebook, chock full of Bleach, Samurai X and Manga Fanatics (Like you wouldn’t believe)

They meet up monthly and have got over 800 members in the FB Group and even have an Official Facebook App – And a pretty good one I might add.
