The folks at Spooky Empires put on a great con that is chiefly geared toward horror and science fiction fans. Spooky Empires is a blast mainly due to its unique “family reunion” atmosphere. Does this mean that there are creepy drunk uncles wandering the floor? No… well… yes, but not really.
While details Star Tours are still scant, here is what we do know. The new ride will be using James Cameron’s 3D technology (yes still with glasses), you will tour at least three different Star Wars locations: Bespin, Alderon, and Endor. Promotional art shows other well known locations such as Hoth and Coruscant.
The highlight of my MegaCon 2011 experience was Jason Thomas’ Red Rocket Farm
There will be a rush of updates probably coming out starting tomorrow (possibly) and definitely as next week cracks, the unfortunate truth is that covering this massive event with just two lonely dudes is not the simplest endeavor. But…
PAX officially kicked off on Thursday night at the Middlesex bar. Harmonix and Swap.com sponsored an incredibly fun meet-up and game swapping session where nerds could gather, talk games, and drink some booze.
Nerd Appropriate was given a bit of an early look at the PAX East floor. While the doors have not yet opened, I can honestly say we're in for a hell of a weekend. SWTOR, Duke Nukem, Gears 3, 3DS…
We may or may not have managed to get on the floor a little early after a confused security guard let us through. So first impressions? SWTOR looks amazing. And there is a ton of shit to play. I'm most…
Got on the shuttle this morning with a nerd herd and headed down to the convention center. Got set up in the press room (yes we are official) now off for some coffee and batteries.
PAX East is a three-day game festival for tabletop, videogame, and PC gamers. We call it a festival because in addition to dedicated tournaments and freeplay areas we’ve got nerdcore concerts, panel discussions, and an exhibitor hall filled with booths displaying the latest from top game publishers and developers.
On February 26, 2011, the former comic magazine company Wizard Entertainment came to Miami to bring it’s own unique brand of a comic convention for the first time ever. Check out Justin’s review of Wizard World Miami!
According to Comic Con’s official Twitter feed, all 2011 4 day passes are all gone. As little as 3 years ago, one was be able to buy a 4 day pass in May or even June, my how things have changed. My wife and I got in line at last year’s Comic Con to buy passes for 2011, and preview night was already sold out. I’m anticipating the line for 2012 Comic Con tickets will be very very long… bring a bucket.
Orlando is known for many things: tourists, bad drivers, strip malls, theme parks, and conventions. Luckily for us, Orlando is a relatively convention heavy city. If you like science fiction, comic books, movies, and gaming, it’s actually not a bad place to hang your hat. Each year at the Orlando Science Center we’re lucky enough to have Otronicon, a convention that focuses on gaming and new technology. I’m happy to say that 2011’s Otronicon is the best yet.
