In the world of online gaming, some of the known gaming companies showed up and promoted their new games such as Level Up! and E-Games, but one new comer made a big impact during the Manga Mania event: enter Cubizone. Their gaming booth drew alot of attending to the on-goers with their goregeous cosplay models (epic win!) that even attracted a nearby gaming company rival (LOL). For those who are not familiar with the new comer, Cubizone is one of the fastest growing gaming portal in Malayasia and is now starting to spread across Asia which includes the Philippines. Some of their games include Casvian (web browsing strategy game similar to Heroes of Might and Magic), Red Cliff
(MMO based on the Three Kingdoms story).
