The New York Comic-Con has come and gone, but thanks to the wonders of the Internet, our coverage remains archived and ready for you to devour. We saw lots of games--some familiar, and some that caught us purely by surprise. A good mix of games made it to the show, not just the usual list of comic-licensed titles. Here's a recap of everything we saw, wrote about, and recorded on video.
New York Comic-Con Video Tour and Pictures
On the first day of the show, Ricardo, Dan Chiappini and I took the time to walk around the showfloor describing what was going on in the form of a video tour. (Watch that one if only to see what happens when an Australian tries to play 360 with foam Wolverine claws.)
The next day, I took my digital camera and ran around the show floor snapping pictures to give you an idea of what the event felt like. And just for fun, I threw in a picture of a Storm Trooper eating lunch. If there was any image that could fully encapsulate the entire show, that was it.
