I couldn’t believe it was actually happening and we did get a taste of the movie last year when footage was released during Comic Con.

Game On With Challenger Xbox Xperience Zone Sony Playstation

As a young boy growing up fascinated with the world of computers, Funan DigitalLife Mall (or just Funan as everyone calls the place for short) was like an IT heaven to me.
