Is Blizzcon really worth the ticket price tag?

Is Blizzcon really worth the ticket price tag?

I’ve been to Blizzcon’s first, second and fourth year.  With every year, the ticket price has been hiked up another $25, starting from $75. Back when I was a World of Warcraft addict, I didn’t mind the $75 price tag.  I got to shake hands briefly with the developers, learn about the new and upcoming features, and get a first hands-on demo of the game. I also got an exclusive swag bag full of two really cool things, and a bunch of coupons or fliers to use at the event.

After hearing the first opening announcements, buying stuff from the Blizzcon store, playing a 15-minute demo of an upcoming game after waiting in line for an hour, and walking around the conference hall a bit, what else is there to do?

Is Blizzcon really worth the ticket price tag? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Four New Characters Released for Marvel vs Capcom 3 at NYCC!

At NYCC, to excite the crowd even more about the long-awaited Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Capcom employees allowed us to play the game and also announced four new characters. While there, I was allowed to play the game for a while.  The game runs extremely smoothly and is also a ton of fun. Frankly, I couldn’t be more excited for its release.  As for the new characters, Capcom has announced Magneto, M.O.D.O.K, Arthur, and Nathan Spencer.  Check out the videos after the break.

[BAotW @ DragonCon 2010] So…Many…Cosplayers…

[BAotW @ DragonCon 2010] So…Many…Cosplayers…

So, first things first- I am no cosplayer.  I am much too lazy to put together a costume, let alone take the time to make it look even acceptable.  So when I go to conventions and see the time and effort others put into their costumes, I am completely amazed.  That takes serious creativity and non-laziness which I fail to have.  But this past weekend at DragonCon I noticed a few certain cosplayers who went past the standard of costuming and made their outfits even better than the already incredible crowd. And I have to admit, the results were pretty freaking badass.

[DragonCon 2010] One More Cosplay Post from DragonCon

James, Shauna, and I have returned from the Peach State and have a decompression article coming at you very soon.  Until then, satiate your thirst for more cosplay with… well… more cosplay!  These following pictures were taken mostly at the Victorian/Steampunk Ball Sunday night and during the insanity that happened on the streets of downtown Atlanta well into the wee hours of the morning.  It should be noted that, at the same time as DragonCon, there was the opening SEC game of the season; an African-American gay and lesbian pride conference; and one of Ludakris’ downtown block parties.  No joke.  The streets were lined with mad fun!  You might also notice a few celebs that we clearly met.  Check it out after the break.
