Review: Wizard-World Comic-Con 2016

This past weekend, Mike and I had the opportunity to attend the Wizard-World Comic-Con in Richmond Virginia.  The event was held in The Greater Richmond Convention Center from Friday, September 9th-Sunday, September 11th.  Below you can read all the great takeaways from the event.

Atmosphere:

Wizard-World had a family-friendly feel to it.  Not that other Cons do not cater to families, but the layout of the booths, activities, and Cosplayers all seemed to reflect that feel.  There were a good number of families there, many who came in Cosplay together, which was awesome to see the love of the genre passed down from generation to generation.  

Continuing with the family-friendly tone, everything associated with the convention was on one floor, much like Hero's-Con, but in a smaller area.  The set-up of the booths were sectioned into categories for the most part (comics, merchandise, clothing, gaming, celebrities, etc.), which were easy to navigate.

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge Review: Ryu Refined

When Ninja Gaiden 3 hit shelves last spring, I was one of the very few who really enjoyed the game. I appreciated the throwback to the first games in the series -- and I mean the true first games, from the Nes era. In those games, Ryu had one weapon, one ninpo spell, and one mission: to kill everything in his way.

But I was in the minority with my assessment of the game. Even though fans of the series agreed with me, both publicly and in private, Ninja Gaiden 3 was the game that critics loved to dump on and Team Ninja was listening.

When the Wii U was announced, Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja took the opportunity to create a new version of Ninja Gaiden 3, which they called Razor's Edge. They took all of the post-launch Dlc and integrated it into the game from the very start. They added new weapons,

New Games For The Week of 4/2/2013

Not to belittle any of the below games but you really should be playing "Bioshock Infinite" because it really is quite excellent. Anywho, if shooting up people in Cloud City ain't your bag maybe you'll want to check out some of this week's releases.

Title: Defiance

Platform(s): PC, PS3, Xbox 360

Trion Worlds' cross-media third-person shooter slash Mmo is launching today. If you got in one of the Beta's then you'll know there's a little more to it than a simple TV tie-in. Will the community be able to support the ambitious goals from the devs?

Title: Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge

Platform(s): PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360

Jump back into the role of super ninja Ryu Hayabusa once again for katana swing action. Originally designed to be a Wii U exclusive, it seems Team Ninja wanted another chance for Sony and Microsoft fanboys to dive in. Joseph

Gdc 2013: 9 Takeaways from 'Saving Doug: Empathy, Character, and Choice in The Walking Dead'

By Miguel Concepcion

The element of player choice was one of the features that made Telltale Games' "The Walking Dead" one of the most critically acclaimed games of 2012. It was an even more meaningful achievement when this choice-driven game essentially reached the same conclusion for all players. The game succeeds in the choices during the journey and less on the anticipation of the outcome of the choices. One of the more significant choices was during the game's second episode where you had to decide on the fates of Doug and Carley. It was the starting point of the Gdc 2013 talk, 'Saving Doug: Empathy, Character, and Choice in The Walking Dead', hosted by "The Walking Dead" creative director, Jake Rodkin and director/writer, Sean Vanaman.  Here were the nine major takeaways from the panel:

Jake and Sean began by making the distinction between proaction games like "Minecraft" and "Grand Theft

Gdc 2013: Microsoft Wants You To Build the Next Great Xbox SmartGlass Experience

By Kevin Kelly

Rosa Thomas, a ten-year veteran and Principal Program Manager at Microsoft, spoke at Gdc in San Francisco about the SmartGlass experience that Microsoft has been rolling out slowly on the Xbox 360. First announced at E3 last year, Microsoft rolled out the service with Windows 8 this past October, and plans to ramp up what the experience offers in the coming months.

So what is it? On the basic level, SmartGlass is Microsoft's proprietary Second Screen experience that works (currently) in conjunction with the Xbox 360, offering a second screen full of information and functions on the iOS, Android, Windows 8, and Windows Phone. Right now it only works with a handful of games, including "Halo 4" and "Forza Horizon," some of the Xbox 360 video apps, including HBO Go, and a smattering of newly released movies.

The SmartGlass app, which you launch from your secondary device while running the Xbox 360, provides different functions on the second screen,

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge Demo Drops for Xbox 360 and PS3

A free playable demo for Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge is arriving on both Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 today, several weeks ahead of the full game's April 2 retail release.

The demo includes separate stages for the game's two playable stars, Ryu Hayabusa and Ayane. Ryu's stage is in the deserts of Dubai while Ayane will be fighting in the heart of Paris. Hero and Normal difficulty levels are available initially, with Hard and Master Ninja difficulty levels available to unlock

Clearing both stages opens up the Chapter Challenge. Tecmo Koei claims Kasumi can be unlocked in the demo, so we're assuming the Chapter Challenge is where that occurs.

All Ninja Skills and Karma earned during the demo are fully transferrable to the full retail version when it's released.

Check out the brand new Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge demo trailer below.

A Demo And SmartGlass Functionality Coming To 'Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge'

The Team Ninja hack and slash will be getting a demo in time with its April 2 release date along with some SmartGlass bells and whistles for the Xbox 360 port.

The SmartGlass stuff--Microsoft's name for second screen functionality--is mostly community-focused, allowing you to check your rankings among other "Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge" players as well as checking out uploaded videos to get tips and learn tricks. Namco offered something similar with their HTML5 enabled World Tekken Federation around the launch of "Tekken Tag Tournament 2" although that was done in part to facilitate teams and tournaments for the fighter.

"Razor's Edge" was released for the Wii U back in November, bringing an update to the game's battle system and AI, while adding more playable characters.

Horrifying Video Arrives Entitled The Blair Wii U Project

The Nintendo Wii U launched on November 18, 2012. Fans are finding tons of creative ways to use the new console, such as creating their very own Pov horror films. Nope, we didn't see this one coming!

Wii U owner Frank Howley was inspired by the films Noroi, [Rec], The Blair Witch Project and VHS to use the console's cameras to make his very own film. The video highlights some of the Nintendo Wii U's video call features and shows that you do not need a ton of fancy camera equipment or film expertise to make your own horror movie!

Check it out below.

Wii U offers completely new and unexpected game play, entertainment experiences and unique online interactions.

Wii U GamePad: The controller features a 6.2-inch touch screen that redefines how people interact with their games, their entertainment and one another. It comes with dual analog sticks and traditional buttons for gaming.

The Vita's Getting 'Dead or Alive 5' And 'Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2' In 2013

Both games are getting "Plus" added to their titles as Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja bring Vita-specific features to the fighter and the hack and slash early next year.

I'm taking this as kind of a good news/bad news thing: the Vita has unexpectedly become a fine place to play a certain kind of fighting game (particularly those without six-button control schemes). And in spite of some reservations, I really liked "Dead or Alive 5," so seeing it make the jump to portable is good news. And while 2008's "Ninja Gaiden 2" was a mess, if the first "Ninja Gaiden Sigma" on the PS3 proved anything, it's that Team Ninja can take and synthesize fan feedback in remakes/rereleases of their popular titles, plus in spite of its many, many issues, "Ninja Gaiden 2" offered the kind of punishing difficulty and technical combat we've come to expect from the series.

So what's got me all worried?

Upcoming 'Mass Effect 3' Dlc Might Be A Big Deal

How big? According to Eurogamer, big enough to require an eight-person writing team which will include lead writer Mac Walters. The untitled Dlc is being developed by BioWare's Edmonton studio, and according to one of the company's designers, that number represents pretty much the entire writing team there.

But BioWare's not just throwing a bunch of writers at the next story set (presumably) in and around "Mass Effect 3."

Seth Green is making his "Mass Effect 3" Dlc debut in a return to his role as Normandy pilot/resident joker, Joker. Also returning is "Mass Effect 3" composer Sam Hulick, whose work can also be found in "Baldur's Gate" and "Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad" as well as "Mass Effect 2."

So what will the next piece of Dlc entail? It's anyone's guess, but each one has dealt with the same problem of getting their hooks into a player who may or may

'Ninja Gaiden: Razor's Edge' Character Dlc Headed To Wii U

"Ninja Gaiden: Razer's Edge" on Wii U has been touted as the definitive version of "Ninja Gaiden III", but it seems Team Ninja isn't finished just yet. Today, during the North American Nintendo Direct broadcast, Nintendo revealed that two new characters are "coming soon" via a free download, one of whom you may recognize from an entirely separate franchise.

Nintendo started the Ninja Gaiden: Razor's Edge talk by highlighting many of new features the game brings to the table, but things got interesting when they started tling about the game's characters. Momiji, who's appeared in previous Ninja Gaiden titles, is the first downloadable character we'll see, but the second Dlc character joining the ranks just so happens to be Kasumi from the the Dead or Alive series.

Much like the current option of playing through the game as either Ayane or Ryu, players will also be able to do so with the two new characters.

Team Ninja Announces Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus Coming to Ps Vita

At the 2012 Tokyo Game Show, Tecmo-koei announced that Ryu Hayabusa would be once again gracing the PlayStation Vita in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus is a direct follow up to Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus, a PlayStation Vita launch title, and essentially a port of the first modern Ninja Gaiden game released in 2004. The addition of Rachel as a playable character, complete with her own levels, added to the original game's story. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus, a port-with-additional-features of 2008's Ninja Gaiden 2, will continue the story of the Hayabusa clan's endless battle with the greater fiends, and will more than likely also include new playable characters and levels.

With announcement of Sigma 2 Plus on the Vita, can Ninja Gaiden Sigma 3 Plus be far behind? Team Ninja has already shown the propensity of porting the third game in the series to newer systems, as Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge

Nintendo Confirms 23 Day-One Wii U Launch Titles!

For the past few months it seemed as if we'd never get a definitive answer from Nintendo on which games are actually going to available day-one when the Wii U launches in November. Thankfully, the Big N surprised us all this morning by releasing a list of games confirmed for November 18th and fans will be happy to learn we have 23 titles to choose from.

"We're making sure that Wii U owners will have great games to play from the moment they open the box, and that a steady stream of fun new games is always on the way," said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's president and COO. "We have something for everyone, from new franchises to creative new approaches to familiar favorites."

First party titles from Nintendo, such as New Super Mario Bros. U, will be available day-one at launch, along with some surprise third-party heavy-hitters, including Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

Nintendo Wii U Launch Games Lineup Finalized

Nintendo this morning issued a press release that cements their Wii U launch games lineup with 23 titles that will be available on the console's November 18 North America release date. An additional 23 games will be available available during the launch window that runs through the end of March 2013.

As we suspected, Ubisoft is leading the Wii U launch charge with a total of six games including two of the most wanted on the console, ZombieU and Assassin's Creed 3. Activision is also well represented with four games including Skylanders Giants and Call of Duty: Black Ops II, while Nintendo will be publishing four of their own including New Super Mario Bros. U and Nintendo Land.

Games we once thought would be available at launch but have slid into the launch window include Rayman Legends, Pikmin 3 and NBA 2K 13. See below for the complete Nintendo Wii U launch games list.

Wii U Launch Titles Total 22 Games

Nintendo has updated 22 games at their official website that will serve as the Wii U launch titles expected to be available to purchase when the system arrives in stores on November 18, 2012. They haven't issued a formal press release stating these are the games to look out for. If they aren't, then why bother printing release dates on the official website?

These titles first appeared with a November 18 release date on the official Nintendo website a few days after Nintendo announced the console's release date. Most of them were expected to appear either at or just after launch considering final cover art was officially released, so little seen in the list below should come as a surprise. Due to the uncertainty of software availability on launch dates, some games could appear in stores before November 18 and some just after.

However, despite the number of obvious choices, noticeably absent from the list
