Fusion GC is THE place for serious and casual gamers on the East Coast. We are a Roanoke, VA based video game convention that's "All about the gaming". It all Started in 2001 by Andy Roberts and Shan Shapiro as a small 6 person LAN party under the name MegaLAN for the PC game Counter-Strike. We have grown progressively through the years into an all-encompassing 3-day event. Fusion focuses on all different types of video gaming and video game aspects. Comprised of tournaments, video game enthusiasts, musicians, and the passion for video games, Fusion is the total gaming experience.
Fusion '05 was a huge success. Attendance was around an astounding 230! We hosted a bunch tournaments with lots of great regional and extended competition and gave out over $1700 cash and about $2000 more in prizes including Street Fighter Arcade Sticks, Street Fighter Controllers, Soul Calibur & Tekken 5 art books, an X-Arcade Stick, and more! We also had a few other exciting events throughout the weekend such as a video game themed Jeopardy game show, a guest panel by Robert Aldrich, a short piano concert by Koaltahk and an amazing auction. Fusion '05 will only be topped by an even more exciting Fusion '06.
FusionGC 2006 was held at the Ramada Inn on Franklin road in Roanoke, VA on June 30 - July 2. There are no new FusionGC events planned as of yet.
