I know, I know, Watch Dogs has been getting a lot of coverage this past month leading up to its release on May 27, but today a new set of screenshots were leaked (via Reddit user Sharon009). The 3 screenshots include the games protagonist, Aiden Pierce, wandering the streets of Chicago. Even though the buildup to its release has been over saturated with content, it’s a nice reminder that in about a week we will finally be able to roam around Watch Dogs’ Chicago for ourselves.
Second day at Dallas Comic Con was essentially twice as fun; double the fans, double the cosplayers, and double the celebrity encounters. We started with wandering the show floor again simply searching for the best cosplayers we could find. The ones who stood out were: Jengo Fett, Fem Shep, Indian Jones and Henry Jones Sr., and an ODST from Halo. After some window shopping we headed down to a panel that included David Morrissey (The Govenor) Michael Rooker (Merle) from The Walking Dead Series. We got to hear them talk about the show and some things that happened behind the scenes. Both Morrisey and Rooker are very friendly and also quite hilarious! After the panel we actually got to meet Rooker face to face, didn’t take a photo because it was about 60 bucks, but nonetheless he was a cool dude. And then I stopped by Neither Noir’s booth, they do some amazing Comic-style photography, and I bought an amazing print of their Superman: Blackest Night print, that was my one and only purchase and you should definitely check out some of their work. Sadly, I will not be able to attend on Sunday but overall I had a great time and will definitely be attending next year…and bring a lot more spending cash.
I’ve never been to Dallas Comic Con so I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into, but once we finally found the entrance I knew I was going to have a great time. The show floor was flooded with amazing artwork, comics, and of course…cosplayers. Also I got to meet the one and only Christopher Lloyd! Since it was my first time I didn’t even think about bringing some spending money. Now that I know, I’ll definitely save some up for next year. Overall it was a blast and can’t wait for day 2 tomorrow. In the meantime take a look at some photos from the show floor.
Bonnie Ross, the General Manager at 343 Industries, has officially announced (via blog post) the next Halo installment; “Halo 5: Guardians” will be coming to Xbox One in the fall of 2015. Ross says that Halo 5 is a “bigger effort” compared to Halo 4 in both “content and scope of the game”. The GM also reports a brand new engine is being used to help elevate the series to next-gen standards, along with a little tease for this years E3 saying, the “journey definitely begins in 2014 with a giant leap, rather than one small step.” Perhaps we will see that new engine on June 9th at Microsofts E3 press conference.
Tomorrow, Casey and I will be attending Dallas Comic Con. This will be my first time to go and we are both extremely excited to launch Couch Co-op during this awesome weekend. If you haven’t already, be sure to follow us on Twitter (@CouchCo-op). We will be posting plenty of pics to document the awesomeness that will unfold.
