#indiegames and #gamedev Now at San Diego Comic-Con 2017

1 08 2017

This year I was lucky enough to be able to attend to this years Comic-Con in San Diego, California. I was able to see the latest in games, movies, TV, and other entertainment.  The expo hall at the convention center in downtown San Diego was well organized, all of the gaming companies where in  one section of the hall (the end). Here you can see the latest games from Xbox, Capcom, Nintendo, Blizzard, and Namco Bandai (see pics below).  Nintendo was showing off their latest game, Super Mario Odyssey. Capcom was showing off Marvel vs Capcom Infinite. Xbox was showing the latest from Shadow of Mordor series. Also Bandai was showing Tekken 7,

 

Also, as a convention first, they introduced a Indie Game Meetup called Game Creator Connection, here you can meet with industry experts to get feedback on your game and get sage advice on anything in the field. The only drawback I had we only had time to only meet one expert. Hopefully next year, they can extend it to more. Also during the meetup, you can meet other industry types, such as freelance artists (such as Erik Arreaga  (pic below)), 3D artists, and other developers.

Also at the con you get to meet various independent artists in other fields such as movies and comics. This year I was able to meet Lloyd Kaufman, creator of the epicly awesome Toxic Avenger and his new pic Return to Return to Class of Nuke’Em High Vol 2.

Comic Con 2014

1 08 2014

Another great year at Comic Con in San Diego, California. This year there were plenty of things to check out and experience. If you like TV shows, there were plenty of screenings and panels with the actors such as Constantine, Person of Interest, Robot Chicken, and Mike Tyson Mysteries (which was unexpectedly awesome!). There were also movie screenings, for the Hercules panel, the Rock showed up and invited everyone to see the screening of his latest flick. There was also a teaser of a new movie called Pixels, about a group tries to save the world from an invasion from aliens that look like they are from 80’s retro games. Lets not forget the best for last, the games, Xbox was once again held at the Hyatt hotel, and they had some new games to show off, such as Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Sunset Overdrive, and MLG. If you went to Comic Con this year, what was was your favorite panel or screening did you see?
