DC Universe Online gives the Green Light on DLC

The DC Universe Online just got the green light for some new content. Mark your calendars, as on September 6th it’ll be time to do a little ring slinging Poozers! As for price, it was reported earlier that it would be $9.99, although Sony has just announced that the GL DLC will be free.

While I was already excited about the content, the crew from Comic Issues got a little hands-on demo at the San Diego Comic Con. Talking about it is one thing, but how about some video footage?

[Comic-Con 2011] Interviews with the ThunderCats

There’s an old adage that says, “If you love something let it go, if it comes back to you then it was meant to be.”  I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the ThunderCats (debuting on Cartoon Network this coming Friday, July 29) but I’ve been a little concerned about the reboot.  It wasn’t until I saw this Friday’s upcoming premiere preview at Comic Con that I was finally confident of the new series. I interviewed several members of the cast and crew at SDCC about the series’ premiere; check it out below!

[Comic Con 2011] Day 4 – The Last Gallery of the Cosplayers and Booth Babes

The last day of Comic Con came and went. I’m a little sad that it’s done, honestly. No more amazing costumes to check out, no more hotties walking around, and no more random nerdy fun. On the other side, though, my feet are glad that it’s all done.

Below is the last gallery of all the cosplayers, booth babes, and random hotties.  Enjoy!

Also, stay tuned for the Comic Con 2011 video montage!

[Comic Con 2011] Comic Issues: Day 2

What an amazing day it was today!  My body is already showing signs of fatigue, but that has yet to stop me from enjoying every minute of the convention.  There are good vibes in the air at the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) and everyone is getting them.  Everyone I’ve encountered, from professionals to exhibitors to fans, have helped make this perhaps my best Comic-Con ever.

On our way home, Darran and I chatted a bit over what we’ve enjoyed the most about the 2nd day of Comic-Con (though it’s his first and my second and a half).  One thing that we both liked was the creativity in this years cosplayers, mixing genres and coming up with new costumes that we haven’t seen before.  Darran enjoyed the three panels he attended, all dedicated to improving his craft as an artist.

Go ahead and listen to us go on in the short audio clip below, if you want to hear what we thought.

[Comic Con 2011] Comic Issues: Day 1

The first official full day of the San Diego Comic-Con is now over, and though Wednesday was preview night, Thursday is when everything really kicks off.  For me today was about panels, Arkham City, and Darksiders 2, but I got so much more than that.  This Comic-Con marks a return after a five-year absence due to travel and the rising cost and availability of the convention itself.  It was a sort of homecoming for me as this is the convention for my home town of San Diego.  SDCC was my first convention and, though some things have changed, much has happily stayed the same.

Recapping the day, I recorded myself going over vaguely the highlights of the 1st day of the convention.  Though heartfelt and impromptu, for a more in-depth telling of my day, read on below.
