Every year that I go to Comic-Con I do my best to check out some panels and events that aren’t massive studio funded spectacles. Here some of the panels happening next week that you should add to your list.
We’ve been covering the creative folks at Crabcat Industries for ages now and are stoked to share with you the very first episode of their Nerdist series Try This at Home With Crabcat Industries. If you’re curious about Crabcat and what they do, you should check out Morgan Spurlock’s beautiful documentary Comic-Con Episode IV: a Fan’s Hope. Try this at Home aims to help viewers with a wide variety of projects from prop building to power suits. I can’t wait to see the freaking power suits!
Thursday night we had the pleasure of helping put together a small gathering of community friends in celebration of PAX: Prime, and we couldn’t have asked for a more memorable experience. What started out as a casual cup of coffee with friends turned into one of the most positive experiences I’ve ever had at a convention.
The second BioWare panel at Geek Girl Con titled, “Myth of the Female Gamer Perspective,” was an attempt to explore and generate discussion on what can be a polarizing topic. Karin Weekes (senior editor) moderated the panel while the panelists included were: Sheryl Chee (writer); Jessica Merizan (community manager); Sarah Hayward (cinematic designer); Melanie Fleming (localization producer) and Kris Schoneberg (level designer).
We love what both Geek and Sundry and The Nerdist are doing for pop-culture. By highlighting creative and intelligent individuals that typically don’t get a ton of attention, Nerdist Industries lets people know that it’s okay to be an art nerd, or a science nerd. Nerdist lets you know that it’s totally okay to be exactly who or what you want to be.
Well it’s here! Love it or hate it, the fabled Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut it upon us. Please use this *SPOILER* filled thread to spill your guts and let other members of the community know exactly how you feel about of Bioware’s latest DLC.
No what your view is of the Extended Cut, June 26th marks the first time in video game history that the opinions of the community have been directly directly addressed in such an agressive fashion. Bioware is indeed listening.
