THE GAMING COSPLAY OF NYCC

We spent the past four days roaming the halls of the Javits Center at New York Comic Con. We have plenty of games to discuss over the coming weeks, including our hands-on time with both JUST CAUSE 3 and DARK SOULS III, but first, we wanted to share come of the amazing gaming cosplay that was present at this year’s show. So enjoy these pics and stay tuned for much more to come!

The Gaming Cosplay of ConnectiCon

The annual ConnectiCon convention in Hartford, Connecticut is a show I’ve attended for years. My Secret Identity podcast partner Matt Herring and I were the this year, doing panels on podcasting, selling books and covering the show for Secret Identity.

One of the coolest aspects of ConnectiCon is that it’s a huge show for cosplay, and because the show is a multi-genre one, you’ll see everything from anime cosplays to mainstream comic superheroes to gaming-related cosplays. Many of the gaming cosplayers were cool enough to let me take some photos this weekend so that I could showcase their fantastic costumes here on the blog. So, without further ado, here are some of the coolest gaming cosplays I saw this past weekend at ConnectiCon.READ MORE

E3 2015 – Trackmania Turbo Could Be Huge on Consoles

The series has been huge on PC for years, and has made a few forays into the console space, yielding mixed results. I’ve played a good amount of Trackmania Forever on PC, and Trackmania DS is still one of my favorite games to come out on Nintendo’s handheld.READ MORE

Gaming News Sites Are an Endangered Species

You probably have a few gaming sites you visit at least three or four times a week to keep up on what’s happening in the industry, check out reviews and hopefully look for some interesting games discussion. I bounce between several, but I usually start my morning checking IGN and Polygon, as I know the latest press releases will be there. This is mainly out of habit, and if you visit those two sites regularly, then you may have noticed a couple of things. First, there’s a lot of the same stuff on both of them (although this is par for the course with regard to industry news). And second, there seems to be less and less gaming-related items on those sites than ever before.READ MORE
