It is with great pleasure that VGCorps announces that the VWE BattleTech Pods will return to A-Kon® 25!  Come out June 6 – 8 and enjoy one of the greatest anime-based conventions in the country, that also offers some of the best gaming around!  This year, we are pleased  to join many other fine gaming options in the Imperial Ballroom of the Hilton Anatole.  We will offer near ‘round the clock action in 6 of our Tesla II simulator pods, complementing the other gaming options available to the convention attendees.  So come out for A-Kon®, come out for gaming, and come out for a hot fight in 30 ft tall mechs in BattleTech: Firestorm!


VGCorps presents remote translocation services for a game of BattleTech:Firestorm

BattleTech: Firestorm delivers adrenaline-pumping game action.  From the moment you spot an opponent on your radar screen to the explosive battles, you are exhilarated. Enjoy the hunt for prey in a futuristic wasteland. BattleTech is not hide and seek, it’s seek and destroy! Every moment counts as you control a thirty-foot tall, 75 ton walking tank, blasting your way to victory. You’re the pilot of a BattleMech® competing against other players in the 31st century. Each ‘Mech® is equipped with tons of ammo, cannons, lasers and missiles. Your job is to destroy your opponents while trying to withstand their vigorous attack on you.

At our mobile site here at the convention, a 7 minute mission will cost only $5! Our expert pilots and technicians will assist you with a pre-mission briefing and instruction, ensure your successful translocation, and guide you to a mission review area upon your return to our normal space. When seated in the Tesla II® System cockpit for your BattleTech: Firestorm game, you will be amazed. The BattleTech game is like nothing you have experienced before. The main screen is a window, your view from your giant ‘Mech®. Five surrounding monitors display your ‘Mech’s systems. A secondary radar screen helps you hunt down your opponents. The throttle, foot pedals and military-style joystick help you pilot this massive fighting machine. At your fingertips are enough weapons to destroy anything in your path. Or so you think.
