First up is the Lenovo Legion and yes I have totally given them preference due to both @v8Matty and (myself) @charisMcAwesome who will be gracing this exhibits presence with our truly awful gaming skills.
Lenovo Legion is also having the Star Wars AR experience were you can get hands on (before Australia’s Pax) with the highly anticipated game.
A Horror Maze will also debut at the event (cost is $10) where you will have 2 lives to make it through to the end.
