Day 1 of Pixelatedgeek.com’s coverage of the Video Games Expo in Philly has concluded!  and might I say, what an awesome day it was.  Six hours of sleep deprived driving (Two more hours sleeping on the side of the road) later, we’re in Philly, which is like a dirty version of our home in Pittsburgh.  Hotels.com fucked our reservations up and ended up charging us twice for a room they didn’t actually book for us.  Please, do not use Hotels.com, the customer service eats a filthy ass and, well, they charged me $400 for a $200 room.  But enough of my soapbox, we made it to the expo and dammit, did we have fun.

While slightly smaller than I expected it to be, this con is not lacking in gaming goodness.  From the new developers section where we checked out some awesome up and coming games (More on that in a bit) to the “Retro Con” where we got to sample some old arcane favorites, Day 1 did not disappoint.  Booth babes, free energy drinks and some pretty decent cosplays didn’t hurt the deal, either.  Today was slightly lacking in events, however, I not only understand but appreciate that fact, as it allowed us to get the ball rolling while still managing to enjoy the con for ourselves.  Saturday looks jam packed full of some juicy Q&A’s, panels and events.  I believe Sunday will feature a small Video Games Live concert, so I’ll be doing my best to be in attendance.  So I don’t have a ton to report back on today, but the main event is quite exciting.

The Need for Speed series has been around for quite sometime. Sense the debut of the Next Gen Consoles Need for Speed has done quite a change up from it’s usual offerings. I was fortunate enough to get a review copy of the Need for Speed Shift. While I’m not a hardcore racing enthusiast after seeing Shift at E3 I was a bit curious. So how does Shift hold up in the Next Gen Racing department?? Well buckle up and get ready for a high speed and unbiased review.

For the 1st annual Long Beach Comic Con, I was really impressed by the turn out.  Sure things were a little bit more low key and amateur than San Diego Comic Con, but again, this is their first year vs SDCC having 40 years.  So, congratulations to the Long Beach Comic Con staff for creating a very relaxing and more down to earth con.  I enjoyed it and hope to be coming back for years to come. And now, on to the costumes and cosplayers.

Tim Schafer and Jimmy Fallon bring Gaming Industry to Late Night

Posted by: |

The gaming industry is finally hitting the Late Night circuit, thanks in part to Jimmy Fallon and his staff.  Tim Schafer got to be a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night to talk about Brutal Legend and the things we geeks already know about.  But I think it’s more fun to see a game developer say it on a more viewed format like Late night TV.

Jimmy did mention that he would like game launches to be treated more like film.  I really hope that happens, because just like a film, games take a huge crew to make and getting more promotion on Late night talk shows would really help the game industry.
