La Madrid Games Week This year it took place on October 17, 18 and 19, at the Madrid fairgrounds of Ifema, where video game fans from all over Spain have gathered to attend the largest electronic leisure event that It is celebrated in the country, with the support and collaboration of the main video game publishers, producers and distributors, such as the large Sony, Nintendo y Microsoft products, who attended the fair with the best games for their consoles.
La 2014 edition has had a multitude of activities, contests, tournaments, cosplay and, especially, games, the real protagonists of Madrid Games Week: 250 titles have been available to the public, with video projections and exclusive demos for many games that will still take months to be available in stores. Furthermore, this year the indie programs have had a prominent space in the pavilion, with a multitude of proposals, many "made in Spain".
Sony, Nintendo y Microsoft products They were not the only ones to show us their next news and most recent games, we also had the opportunity to see and test games of Bandai Namco, Activision, Electronic Arts or Koch Media. No one has wanted to miss this Madrid Games Week 2014It is the perfect pre-Christmas showcase where large companies have been able to showcase the video games that will be in fashion in the coming months. This year, record numbers have been broken and not only in the number of stands and games presented, but many more visitors have also been received in 2014: the fair has closed its doors with an audience of more than 55.000 attendees. And despite that filling and that the figures may overwhelm, pavilion number 8 has been an ideal place to house the dozens of stands that could be visited and moved among the mass, even despite having practically been held on weekends. without any problem and stress, so typical of mass events.
The enormous number of games to taste or watch at the event was very high and there were some in particular that gathered striking queues. The booth of Nintendo It was well attended thanks to the games brought by the great N. Bayonetta 2 I was very pleasantly surprised, with exquisite fluidity of the game, larger and more detailed settings and a Bayonetta as brash and deadly as ever: users of Wii U you will soon be able to enjoy a very powerful hack'n slash exclusive for your console. The colorful Splatoon It was not particularly attractive to me and it did not seem like a title to which I could turn to sessions of hours of play, which cannot be said about Super Smash Bros. for Wii UAfter testing it, I am very clear that it will be the most demanded game for the console this Christmas.
Dead Island 2 It was once again influencing the same formula that made the franchise famous in the past generation, but it was a strange pleasure to see the zombies lose limbs on the next generation consoles. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was very striking for its imposing and modern setting, while Assassin's Creed Unity it seemed another episodic reiteration of a saga exhausted playable. The short demo of Resident Evil Revelations 2 It was playable for the first time in Europe, but the game left me quite cold and it was clear that the title needed to be polished even more and that there are still months to finalize the development of the program.
They were very attractive The Order: 1886 y Bloodborne, two exclusive to PlayStation 4 which can be considered the biggest claim of the console for most of next 2015. The first showed levels of action that did not leave a second of respite, while sporting a very peculiar Victorian setting; meanwhile, the next From Software game and heir to the spirit "Dark" remained true to its origins and spent a heartbreaking staging. I also couldn't resist taking a look at the colorful and unbridled Sunset Overdrive -too crazy- or to play Killer Instinct on a TV 4K de LG.
But it wasn't all video games: during the Madrid Games Week a lot of conferences, but mainly oriented to the video game business and especially to projects of portable devices and content monetization, which could be interesting for those who wanted to enter the world behind the scenes. There were also even contests cosplay, and I was able to come across some really elaborate -my most sincere congratulations to them-, which ranged from the classics, such as that of Link, even the terrible Guardian de The Evil Within -and I can't forget about Brotherhood Assassin who perched on top of the stands: sometimes it was even dizzy to look at him.
La Madrid Games Week 2014 It was a perfect occasion to be able to see and try the latest and future video game novelties, the atmosphere was very pleasant, the organization was well measured, there were a good number of activities, tournaments, talks, it was attended by some well-known characters and It has been the edition with the most games and stands available to date. I have no doubt that this 2014 event, with a record number of attendees, has served to consolidate the fair as the best video game event in Spain and that within a year, we will certainly have a bigger and better edition.
