Nerd Con 2015 – Photo and Video Gallery

I think it’s safe to say the attendance at this weekend’s first ever Nerd Con surprised everyone. The line to pick up tickets stretched all the way around the California Center for the Arts Escondido, the sales floor was massively packed, and the cosplayers were out in force. Despite the heat, the mood was upbeat and excited: if the first year is this good, we can hopefully look forward to even more awesomeness next year.

Click the jump to see a huge photo gallery of photos and videos by (or of) the PG crew in attendance: Stephanie Agnes, Jada Scarbrough, Elizabeth Wallace, Leland Pierce Jr., Jordan Pollock, and Anthony Silva.

Cyborg #1 Review & Interview with David Walker

Cyborg #1 Review & Interview with David Walker

Some characters in comics have to spend a long time in filling in the background of panels before they can step up to the big leagues.  Victor Stone has been one of DC’s most notable background characters for 25 years and probably best known as a major member of creator Marv Wolfman’s Teen Titans.  The technologically hybrid hero has been the prime example of the “outsider” character which has made him a favorite among young readers who have identified with him.  Now in a larger role as a founding member of the Justice League, Victor Stone is getting his own solo series by critically acclaimed writer, David F. Walker and DC’s resident artist superstar, Ivan Reis.

Issue #1 debuted just this week and it is already collecting high praise from the comic book community. Within just the first few pages the groundwork, it’s clear that Cyborg will be dealing with a lot more than a typical roster of throw-away villains. Vic Stone is the star of this book and David Walker is writing for the man more than he is the machine.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain trailer may be Kojima’s last

E3 2015 hasn’t even officially begun and yet we’ve been treated with a slew of trailers for upcoming games. One trailer in particular caught my attention…Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was a standout and it might also be the very last time we see a Metal Gear trailer with series creator Hideo Kojima still as lead on this legendary property. Past trailers have always captured the tone of the Metal Gear game being promoted and I can’t help but think that that is in part due to Kojima’s influence. This trailer remains consistent to his vision and does not disappoint. Hit the jump to check out the trailer!
