Comic Con International 2015

In case you were wondering and the image above wasn’t clear enough, no, I was not in attendance at San Diego Comic Con this year, nor have I ever been and who knows if I’ll ever make it there.  But this year, same as every other year, I strive to keep up with as much of the news coming out of the show as possible and boy was there a lot this year.  I don’t know if it was because there was more announced this year that I was interested in than previous years, but SDCC 2015 felt like the biggest yet in terms of huge, awesome news.  DC had a killer show, coming right out the gate strong and continuing with an avalanche of incredible announcements (and trailers) all weekend.  So the way I’m going to dissect and discuss everything I’ve seen this weekend is breaking it down over the course of a few days with a few special posts for a couple of really huge things.  First up for tomorrow will be a look at all the DC Comics news, Wednesday I’ll delve into the DC Collectibles announcements, Thursday we’ll take a look at Marvel Comics news, Friday we’ll look at Marvel Legends and other Marvel related collectibles and finally Saturday’s focus will be everything else that jumped out at me.  On top of that Sunday will have bonus posts breaking down and analysing two absolutely freaking huge trailers shown to the Hall H attendees.  No doubt you can guess which two got me giddy with excitement.

As if I’m not giving myself enough to do this week, this Thursday I’ll be picking up a decent headset for my PS4 so I can begin streaming on Twitch.  The plan is, I’ll be streaming The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 21:00 GMT to 23:00 GMT.  Rather than being just a simple stream of me playing a game, however, I’ll be playing on “Death March” which is essentially hard mode but to keep in the spirit of Geralt of Rivia and The Witcher in general, I’ll be drinking only vodka all the way through each two hour stream.  So who knows how bloody long it’ll take to finish this game on that difficulty and in that state, but hopefully it’ll be good fun.  My channel is over here, feel free to drop by and see the potential train wreck for yourself.

Anyway, I’m going to go get things prepared for all my posts coming this week, it’ll be a challenge to get everything out when I want but I think it’ll be worth it.  Stay frosty!
