    This year mark’s the 75th Anniversary of Bob Kane and Bill Finger’s iconic character Batman, and New York Comic Con decked the halls of the Javits Center in the spirt of the Dark Knight himself with a wide array of Batman related guests, content and exhibits. The official 75th Anniversary Panel featured Geoff Johns, the Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment, along with Neal Adams, Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Jim Lee, and everyone’s favorite Batman himself, Kevin Conroy in my personal favorite Batman role ever, Batman: The Animated Series. Batman: TAS artist, Bruce Timm and writer and artist Darwyn Cooke each created their own Batman short for the celebration. For anyone not lucky enough to score a seat in the panel, fear not, as both animated shorts are easy enough to find on the web now. In addition to the panel, Warner Brothers Comics, DC Entertainment and the United States

    TokiDoki to reveal new collaboration at SDCC

    I am in love with TokiDoki and have several of their collaboration diaper bags with Ju Ju Be. Today we got news of their SDCC intentions. Not only will Simone Legno be signing each day of Comic Con (#5145 from 3:00PM – 4:00PM Thursday, 7/24, Friday, July 25, and Saturday, 7/26), but they also have a special collaboration to announce! From the press release, it looks like there will be a Peanuts collaboration and a reveal of products from it’s ’14 London Sole collection. If you’ve visited SDCC before, you know that the Toki Doki booth is usually jam packed with people and difficult to get to in order to make purchases.

Tokidoki will unveil limited-edition product exclusives including tees and hats as well as a 5” Golden Donutella vinyl for $30.00. A tote

    IeSF responds to previous exclusion of Women Hearthstone players

    Yesterday the internet was alive with discussion about the fact the IeSF had chosen to exclude females from ESports competition specifically for Hearthstone. I was proud to see the discussion come alive and many sites write articles calling for removal of any gender discrimination in competition. ESports is different in that physical strength is not a factor in competition. There is no real “need” for separating out gender in competition. Today IeSF has responded swiftly by recognizing their mistake publicly. In a statement sent to, IeSF General Manager Alex Lim, recognized that the gender separation was part of an old policy that did need to be updated. The organization did not think that they could get female gamers to compete in Hearthstone. Yes, it’s an old way of thinking, but it is definitely promising that the organization acted swiftly and responded. Plus I think it’s great that Alex actually

    Nintendo E3 2014 announcements show innovation

    I was looking forward to Nintendo’s E3 Press event because I still don’t own a Wii U and was interested to see how they are going to convince consumers to pick one up. Turns out it’s with innovation and great games. The new Zelda is set for 2015 and is an open world next gen version in the franchise. Players can get to any area they can see. Many on Twitter were calling it Elder Scrolls Zelda. I’m in. “Nintendo has always represented a unique source of video game entertainment for the widest range of gamers,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s president and chief operating officer. “We create timeless games with twists and turns that provide hours of enjoyment for fans of all ages, and this year with the introduction of amiibo, we’re pushing the creative envelope forward in compelling new ways.” Nintendo announced amiibo which places figures of

    Microsoft kicks off #E3 with Xbox One announcements

    Microsoft kicked off #E3 2014 as they always do with their press event. We weren’t at the press event this year but here is gathered information from what was sent to me in various emails. Turns out the Microsoft listened to gamers by making sure they focused this year’s presentation on the games. Xbox One has been struggling as a new hardware, but in my opinion that is mostly to do with the lack of supported games. This year they came out swinging. “You are shaping the future of Xbox and we are better for it,” said Xbox head Phil Spencer, the first Microsoft executive to take the stage before the conference launched into its first demo, a gameplay showing of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. “We are dedicating our entire briefing to games,” he added to rapturous applause. Here is a video of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare:

    Leland Ye turns out to be a hypocrite

    For several years we covered the attacks from Leland Ye on the video game industry. Time and time again he lost, only to swear that he would be victorious next time. Spending tons of public funds in an attach that was totally unnecessary. Mature games are marked as such and are meant specifically for gamers 18+. Parents are given many tools from the ESRB to find out what the rating on a game is and why. They are also incredibly good at being fair in rating games. The rating lists the reasons and on their site, they offer larger explanations. All the tools are available to help parents in their game choices for their kids. And yet Ye kept attacking. Well, I’m not sure if it was his own guilt, or maybe he felt he needed to divert attention, but Ye may have been busy living out his own real

    Why is co-op an after thought in Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare

    I have been waiting anxiously for Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare since the launch of the Xbox One. There were a couple of delays, but yesterday I ran to the Local GameStop to get my reserved copy. At this point our Xbox One has only been used to feed the cable through and play Assassins’s Creed and the Titanfall beta. I was anxious for a game that my husband and I can play together. Ever since having pumpkin my playing time has been almost non-existent. It’s incredibly difficult to find time to play. Naps are for errands, cleaning or job hunting and when she goes down at night we have two hours to eat dinner and watch tv before I go down too. Last night we chose to take those precious two hours and play Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare. The installation took some time, so we watched Castle. Then

    Tomb Raider #1 Comic Review

    Dark Horse comics has been responsible for several amazing comic series based on video games, and on February 26th, they will introduce another such series, Tomb Raider. Written than none other than the venerable Gail Simone, Tomb Raider appears to be as wonderfully executed as the Tomb Raider video game reboot early last year. The first issue of Tomb Raider takes place not long after the video game ends, with what’s left of Lara’s crew trying to live their lives post the trauma at Yamatai. Lara is struggling with nightmares, and her best friend Sam violently protests that she’s not traumatized after that experience, nevermind the fact she suddenly sleepwalks. As Lara torments herself that she is the one responsible for everything that happened at Yamatai, she learns that the horrors they experienced on the island are not over. And really, what fun would it be if they were over?
