An Evening With John Barrowman at NYCC.

It’s 6:30pm at NYCC and folks were either at The Walking Dead panel (which I am pretty bummed out that I missed) or the John Barrowman panel. Unfortunately, the two were at the same exact time, and it was a tough decision, but after that very quick hour with Barrowman, I knew I had made the right call.

John entered the stage and the entire room cheered, applauded, and stood up out of their seats in order to get a glimpse at the one and only, John Barrowman. He was bursting with energy, and put a smile on everyone’s face instantly.  John is such a geek fanboy and you could see how appreciative he was that everyone was there for him, and even said, “I didn’t expect that I was going to be so popular here!”

Before he began his Q&A session with the fans, he took out his tablet and announced that at every panel he makes a video to send to his mom & dad (cue the entire room’s “awwwww”). While he was attempting to set up the video on his tablet, he was still engaging the audience and cracking jokes because he knew time was precious at a large event like this.

As he finally got his video feature set up, he requested that we do two things. The first was to cheer and wave hello to his mom & dad, and the second request was for his niece who recently had a baby named Finnegan, and he wanted us to say “Hi, Finnegan!” When he was explaining this to us, he accidentally said, “Can you all shite… SHITE? Actually, when she had the baby she felt like she was having a big shite, I can tell you that!” I would pay to see this man Continue reading An Evening With John Barrowman at NYCC.

NB NYCC Cosplay banner

For the insane amount of people that attended NYCC this year, it felt like there wasn’t as many cosplayers as usual. That, or they were just lost in the crowds. Either way, the ones we DID see were a step above and beyond what we’ve seen yet. They’re getting better and better.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition hands on at NYCC

Back in the day on the original PlayStation, I used to love fighting games.  Tekken 3 was one of my favorites.  Later I played Tekken Tag Tournament, and other subsequent Tekken games, but I never got into them as much as I did with Tekken 3.  My love, and skill with all fighting games has declined over time as they have gotten more and more complicated.  Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition makes playing these types of games fun again for me.

NYCC: Robot Chicken

     Many moons ago I came across a funny little stop-motion series called “Sweet J Presents”. A  funny little spot of stop-motion animated toys involved in skits that rode the edges of pop-culture, random acts of violence, and kindergarten level fart jokes. Well, Sweet J grew up (sort of) and built a robot. Then that robot was attached to a chicken. Then it went back to business as usual, albeit with a bigger budget with which to buy more toys. Robot Chicken is now a phenomena unto itself with massive DVD sales of their Star Wars specials, the upcoming release of the new DC Comics special they did, and the newly announced resurrection of the show for a seventh season!!  Continue reading NYCC: Robot Chicken

NYCC: Scribblenauts Unlimited hands on

When Scribblenauts first launched back in 2009 I was super excited by it.   So much so that I made a small video (Cthulhu Vs The Village People) with fellow Nerd-Base editor Dave Chosid showing off some of the off the wall retarded things you can do in the game.  Scribblenauts was a great idea, but after a few hours the game was boring because it wasn’t really a game.   Developers 5th Cell tried to follow-up with Super Scribblenauts turning it a bit more into a game, but it still fell a bit short for me.  I wasn’t really excited to get my hands on Scribblenauts Unlimited, but I should have been.
