The Face behind the Family: Meet the BEAUTIFUL players of Granado Espada!

Before i start my article, here are my own few sentiments mainly because of my own personal mishap: (better if you skip this one, LOL)

1) My shame on not being able to update my blog for months! Being idle in blogging, i finally have something to post and this is all about the 1st Girl-Gamer-Gathering held at iFrog Cafe in Metrowalk Pasig, hosted of course by E-games (and our dearly beloved pCM Veya), bringer of the Granado Espada game that is the purpose why such a gathering is held.

2) For not posting the FFA Grand Finale Results T_T". I might as well just link it to the official GE announcment since it's known by almost all FFA enthusiast anyway! XD And Though we didn't win this FFA series, it's a good thing I mentioned Kudos before to whoever wins and again, congratulations to them! (I'm happy for getting 140k G-points as consolation anyway! *shopping spree mode weeeee!~*

3) This isn't all rants! XD So I want you to know that I'm very honored and thankful for being one of the awarded as one of the Granado Espada's Fantastic Film Awards Heroes along with the rest of the other contestants namely: Kincaid, deEspania, Fetuccini, Familier, Mortreux, Weisswritter, Behringer, Fiksdotter, Reclusion, iCez, NineMoons, Artaxerxes, Mena, Zaleski, Corinthias and Cerex.

Thanks to Ninemoon's post, i was able to know I'd be receiving this award on the 2nd E-Games Dom1nation on April 6 at SMX Mall of Asia. *overwhelmed* Woot! Hope to see you all there! ^^v


Okay then, It ends there. XD

So going back to the event, I personally loooved the gathering and everything that happened in it. Not only because it was made personally made for Girl Gamers like us, but It was also an opportunity for us to gather together and know the faces behind the players we encounter in the GE community. It was funny to know some of their stories in-game, mostly when WE are being MISTAKEN as GUYS more often than we want to >___<"! *Pic spam Starts here! =)

It was a time for our voices to be heard, (and our fan boys to grow? LOL!) and our presence known... That not only guys can be competitive in the gaming industry (not necessarily GE only~) but for everyone to realize that we can be "mamaws/adiks" too! *Finds a guy to bully* ~XD

Aside from the usual event-happenings, the main highlight of the gathering was the 'Focus Group Discussion' where the E-games-GE team listens to our side regarding anything and everything about the game. The special guest of the night was Relly Carpio of HackenSlash Gaming Blog who interviewed the girl gamers. Watch out for the videos/article he recorded about this event! ^_~v
