Things are changing for the world’s biggest nerd-fest. For the first time ever people are camping out for next-year’s con DURING this year’s con… How meta is that? From reports we’ve been hearing Comic-Con fans have been lining up as early as 11pm just for the opportunity to get passes the following morning
On day four of Comic-Con I made my way down to the Xbox Loungeat the Manchester Grand Hyatt to check out some of the upcoming titles for both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The lounge was dimly lit, spread out, and was a huge relief from the chaos of the Comic-Con floor. I wish I had gone earlier.
I was lucky enough to talk to the cast and creators of Monlith’s upcoming action adventure RPG Middle Earth: Shadows of Mordor at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego. Myself and other members of media peppered Michael de Plater (Director of Design), Christian Cantamessa (Lead Writer), and Troy Baker (voice of Talion), with questions about the upcoming title which is set to launch on September 28th. Baker, who gamers might recognize from starring roles in The Last of Us and Bioshock: Infinite, had some interesting things to say about the voicing the game’s protagonist Talion and just how important Tolkien’s work is to nerds everywhere.
