Yeah we had made our way past the colorful Mighty Morphin display and there were some pretty nice SDCC Exclusives. Dare I say: “TIGERZORD!”

Comic Issues #180 – Gearing Up For SDCC Part 3

It’s finally here! San Diego Comic-Con 2014 is upon us, and Comic Issues will be there every day: roaming the sales floor, photographing cosplay, interviewing actors and artists and writers, and looking for that perfect print or figurine to buy for our own geek lairs.

Join Anthony, Elizabeth, and Leland from Movie-Issues in our third and final installment of Gearing Up For Comic-Con, as we ask the all important questions: did Han Solo’s busted ankle cost us a Star Wars panel; are we going to the Masquerade; which panels are we standing in line for; what’s up with Batgirl’s new costume; why is the internet talking about a ball pit; and can you or can you not kick people if they’re in your way? (No. You can’t. Leland, I’m talking to you. Behave.)

[E3 2014] Alien: Isolation Gets It Right, Is Scary

In a sense, the interactive entertainment based on the Alien universe have translated that universe quite well: some of them were solid and workmanlike, and some of them were complete train-wrecks – an almost-perfect parallel to the film series.  Some of the Alien games were mindless, idiotic action-fests with little in the way of subtlety or pathos, chock full of static characters, awful dialogue, and poor visuals but still bewilderingly maintaining a basic, lowest-common denominator sense of appeal – yes, James Cameron, that was a shot across your bow.

Some of them have been mediocre – good ideas, acceptably executed, but ultimately flawed products – David Fincher’s Aliens 3 & the Aliens versus Predator series.

None of them have measured up to the taut, brilliant, innovative masterpiece of tension and terror that was Ridley Scott’s Alien.  None of them have even managed to be genuinely frightening. And while it’s a bit early to judge Creative Assembly’s Alien: Isolation, it certainly isn’t too early to say that the storied developer behind the Total War series is taking it in precisely the correct direction.

[E3 2014] DOOM

The last few years have not been kind to idRage, a labor of great love and the freshman outing of the idTech 5 engine was met with something short of all-out enthusiasm.  Wolfenstein was met with rave reviews and great audience response – but Wolfenstein had far more to do with Machine Games than it did id. DOOM was announced several years ago, but after months of silence came a statement indicating progress on the project had stalled, and the title would be rolled back and reset. Since then it’s been quite difficult to divine just what id has been doing with themselves.

Earlier today, a hint was given in that direction.  Bethesda Softworks, the publisher now exclusively backing id‘s software development added an enigmatic glimpse into the direction of newest outing in the DOOM franchise.
