Thursday, October 10th to Sunday the 14th was perhaps the most exhausting and longest weekend I have experienced so far in my life. Navigating through the crowds of the con and streets of New York was not for the agoraphobic. At least finding a way to the convention in NYC wasn’t a complete labyrinth, just follow the closest cosplayer you see, and you should be at the con in no time. Everywhere you turned your head on the con floor, you’d see a vendors with so much merch of all sorts of media. A nerd/geek’s shopping spree can get as nasty as a Black Friday shopper. It’s almost like an addiction. “I can stop buying swag whenever I want…or run out of money”. Finally, the patience of Buddha is required for the waiting lines for panels. Some people waited for 9 hours in the panel hall just to get into the Walking Dead panel. At least you could kill time reading comics, right?
Nevertheless, New York Comic Con is one of the few times of the year I actually get hype about. Hanging around like-minded friends, engulfed in all things geek is just a swell feeling. Down below you can see the pictures we snapped from the convention. We’ll be releasing a video of interviews and footage we captured later this week. Enjoy.

The Injustice Mobile Game, which was announced a few weeks ago, is officially released on all mobile iOS systems. This includes your iPod, iPhone, iPad, iWaffleIron, you name it, it plays it. The game comprises of 3v3 fights duked out with simple touches and swipes of the screen. Every playable character is playable in the mobile game, and every character has their supers from the console game as well. Every playable character has a number of alternate costumes, including some that are unique to the iOS game. This is also the only way to get these costumes in the console releases later this month. The game is free to play, with a pay-to-premium service for unlocking characters and bonuses without all the work. You can see a preview of the game in the video above, but if you don’t want to be spoiled on some of the unlocks, then just go download the game on the app store.
Two new game videos were released today for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The first video shows off a fight against a gorilla based enemy. What interest is that the enemy’s moveset changes whenever you cut off a limb. If the enemy loses an arm, it’ll try to get Raiden into a headlock. If the enemy loses both arms, it gonna dropkick your ass. Also, an old friend returns, and just in time for Cinco de Mayo it seems.
We get to see a Metal Gear Ray boss battle in the second video. It seems like the strategy is to avoid missile and laser blasts (very Godzilla like) while trying to cut off pieces of armor and limbs. The slow down sword frenzy mode looks to be crucial. There are a few quick time events, but nothing too extreme, meaning that the game won’t play itself.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be released on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 in the US on February 19, 2013.
