Pinoy Gaming Festival 2011, local gaming scene at its best
This year’s Pinoy Gaming Festival which was a 3-day affair held at the SM North Edsa Cyberzone ended with a bang last Sunday, October 30. There were gamers, cosplayers, rigbuilders and everything in between from all over the Philippines.
There were raffle draws in-between the programs with prizes from sponsors Inno3D, Cooler Master, ECS, LG, Kingston and Razer. There were also mini-games in the sponsor’s respective booth with cool prizes to be won.
The PGF-Mineski Pro Gaming League DOTA was a battle between KVG and Minesky-Infinity Powercolor. Dominating KVG.Izone, MI.POWERCOLOR emerged victorious and will be representing our country in Malaysia.
And in a battle between JaBiTo and Enderr, Mineski’s Enderr will be the one to represent the Philippines in the World Cyber Games for Starcraft II.

What’s a gaming festival without cosplayers? The competition was tough, as cosplayers donned their best costumes to play it out on the Cosplay Competition arena. Most of the characters that were cosplayed were Blizzard characters, and props to the Terran Marine and the Tiny from DOTA cosplayers.
And for the final program, the awarding ceremonies for the best custom made rig in the Rigbuilder’s competition.
Don’t worry if you missed the PGF this year, as there’s always next year. Dust off them keyboards and mice and prepare for another exciting gaming event next year.
