… and his first stop was at Funzcentre @ Ang Mo Kio Hub at 1.30pm.
Fans and passers-by at the store took the opportunity to take photos with him and within seconds it attracted a lot of attention to the character. Some people enquired from me about the buzz, and the puzzled ones include the ladies from the ice cream cafe opposite the game shop. Nevertheless, they were very hesitant to pose beside ‘Marcus Fenix’. Maybe it’s because they were on duty (with uniform) and they didn’t want to risk being captured as skiving out of duty, even though it’s only for a few seconds.
Some of the fans also comprise the younger ones, or rather those who are not supposed to be playing this game. Maybe because they saw their daddies play the first two instalments of Gears of War before.
Check out the schedule and see whether you can make it to the next location where he’s going to be…
Be sure to catch more action at the main event happening at Funan DigitaLife Mall this 19 September 2011.
