NISA Press Event 2017 Coverage

What I discovered at NISA: Suda51 is a great DJ.

So this year on behalf of Hey Poor Player, I got to go to the annual NISA press event. Taking place at the Folsom Street Foundry in San Francisco, California, I got super lit, played on a Nintendo Switch, and my friend ran into Suda51 on his way to the bathroom. There were also many husbandos and waifus, but that’s a typical Friday night for me. Let’s talk about the festivities, shall we?

Kodaka is very nice in person.

The Event & Presentation

I have never been to the Folsom Street Foundry despite not being that far from San Francisco, and I must say NISA did very well with the atmosphere of everything. Good lighting for video games  –albeit bad for filming – many demo stations and an open bar, which is always nice because playing anime-esque video games is always best intoxicated. I got there early to set up some camera shots,. Even so, there were already many people there and the staff was very accommodating to us all. I caught up with some colleagues who were also present and waited for the main event, the presentation and game announcements. The presentation itself did not disappoint – the MC was very lively and quite the showman (sorry I forgot your name mister MC man). However, what everyone was truly waiting for was the games and guest speakers. Let’s start with the guests speakers: Suda 51, known for games such as No More Heroes, Lollipop Chainsaw, Killer 7, and my personal favorite, Killer Is Dead, was one of the guests. Joining him was Kazuka Kodaka, best known as the creator of Danganronpa. Both men were charming and most of all enthusiastic during their respective time on stage. I want to age as gracefully as these handsome charming men. Enough with my fanboyism though! What you readers care about are the games.

Conclusion & Getting Lit

After the presentation I went to record some of my thoughts on camera, then I went to play some games and drink! I got to play many games while I was there, but I would like to save those thoughts for another article as I want to go more in detail about the demos I got to experience. After the announcements I continued to hang out and mingle with some faces, familiar and new, and continued to capture on film what I could. Overall, a well executed event and good selection of games available for play. Waifus, drinks, video games and Suda51 DJ’ing at one point, what more could you ask for? Good job NISA, and thank you so much for allowing me to partake in this super cool event.
