What happens when you put an online game
developer and a gaming e-currency company into an event full of games,
surprises and lot's of otaku goodness? Well you have stepped in into one of the
year's most audacious and exiting gaming events as Cherry Credits and Shanda
Games gave us the opportunity to cover the recently concluded "Cherry
Convention" last March 10 - 11 at Megatrade Halls 1 & 2 of SM
|The sponsors roll for Cherry Convention. Very special mention to |

For the geeks and anime lovers, there was the cosplay concerto and cosplay competition for both days that featured different characters of Dragon Nest as well as an open category for interested cosplayers. With over 75,000 at stake there is no reason not to join. But nothing became more spectacular when the Philippines cosplay goddess, Alodia Gosiengfiao celebrated her birthday on-stage with her fans and supporters. Her cosplay of the games NPC quest planner, Irine suits her just well just like her sisters "Señora Santibañez" antics. She also performed one of their upcoming singles from her group, the Super Dolls as well as having her own version of the Harlem Shake craze that made her fans smile and giggle for her cuteness.
