Under the persona of a renowned pink haired, catgirl scientist from the fighting game series, 'BlazBlue', I make myself known by my deep seated adoration of the video game franchise 'Pokemon', as well as talk about my various ambitions.
You never do the games on Saturday the lines are way too long in proportion to the game played.
Actually, Sunset Overdrive was surprisingly well managed. Also, I was only going for Saturday anyways :/.
Yeah, what happened was Stan Lee’s line segmented to Dan Slott’s who got a bit delayed, which in turn pushed back Lindsey and Barbara.
Speaking of that, when I first saw that, my reaction was, “no way, this whole thing is for Stan Lee?!”. That’s what prompted me to check the postings… which is how I found out about the “delay”. My innate curiosity wins again!
Oh, and, as it turns out, I asked a bunch of RWBY cosplayers if they knew where the VAs were, and a few of them were also looking for them. So, luckily, everything just… worked out.
if you saw the post on PD I put yesterday they were supposed to be (and they did) appear in Area CC
…sorry, no, I missed it. I went to bed earlier than usual since I had to be up early to get to FX. Plus I had a headache, so that instantly took me out x_x.
Lindsay and I will be at Signing Booth CC (4-7 PM) Saturday, & Booth BB (1:30-4 PM) Sunday, which is in the South Building!
Damn good thing I decided to check the listings on those time slots. And by the looks of it, that place was packed xD. It all worked out, and that’s what I care. Oddly enough, only Barbara was dressed up, but it was Yang’s normal look. I wonder if they’re saving that for Sunday…
Either way, I got what I came for, and I’m happy just the same.
Me: " I think so, it looks about right but he’s seen my costume and he’s not quite recognizing me maybe not…. we’ll see when we get closer"
On my end, I’d already seen a couple of Green Arrow cosplayers, and they didn’t look right, so I was wary. But then I thought, “you know what, what the hell, I’ll check”.
Also, I found a Mu12 figure at one of the stalls. I wasn’t going to bother because I think the price was pretty ridiculous for a few others, but mainly because it wasn’t the normal colour scheme :P. Oddly enough, that was the only merch related to BlazBlue at the whole thing xD.
There were some absolutely amazing and clever cosplays this year.
Also, I got a picture of Scrooge McDuck. Brilliant.
I saw that too and actually did a double take.
but with Saturday being the busiest day of Con, it was still like trying to find a needle in a Haystack.
And on that note, you have no idea how happy I was to discover they’d be at a booth. It’s much easier for me to have a place to search for without them moving all over the place xD.
Hell, I’m amazed I even ran into you, and one of my friends from Anime North.
OH. MY. GOD!!
So… today I went to Fan Expo. I’d been kind of excited to go as just to go to it, since, you know, it’s a fun thing and it’s great to take pictures of people cosplaying. No, seriously, it is. These people put a lot of work into these things, and are more than willing to show them off. It’s just how it is.
However, when sum_guy informed me that Lindsay Jones and Barbara Dunkleman would be there… let’s just say my excitement suddenly jumped a lot more than I thought it would.
Then the slight disappointment settled in when I got worried that I’d never find them, due to what the people at the info-booth told me. However… I managed to find out that apparently… they would be at a booth, signing and taking pictures at around 4pm, and that they would allowing people to line up around 3pm. No, I don’t care about waiting. I can wait, I just to know when to wait, and I can wait. Plus I brought my 3DS with me for streetpassing, so I played some more Gunvolt.
But man… words simply cannot describe how awesome it was to actually meet the voice actors from one of my favorite series to date. And both of them were having fun as well with the various people taking pictures with them. Very fan oriented individuals, I like that. So now, I have my RWBY volume 1 BluRay autographed by both of them as I planned and got a picture with them…. also as planned XD.
Yeah, I’m pretty damn happy with the turnout for this year’s Fan Expo. Lots of good pictures, and lots of stuff to see.
I wasn’t exactly keen to check out the Ubisoft booth, and the fact that the only Wii U booth was behind an EB Games membership wall really irked me. Sony booth has Order 1886, and while I did want to play it… I didn’t know exactly how the line worked, so I didn’t really feel like waiting to play it under those circumstances. Microsoft though? Wow, they were very organized.
I got to play Sunset Overdrive, at long last. I’ll sum it up pretty easily: it’s an Insomniac game. Everything about it feels like a classic Insomniac styled platformer, with insane weapons, crazy enemies, and surprisingly, this feels like the first 3D platformer in some time I wouldn’t mind playing. I’m going to admit, if by 2016-17 Microsoft has enough games I’d be willing to play from them without hesitation, I’m going back. Sunset Overdrive and Killer Instinct are both 2 games I would definitely buy for it. Again, I’m waiting, but at this point, Xbox One is doing a lot of good decisions. Sony needs either a Tales game or another 3D platformer game to reel me back in hard.
Also, funny story about the South Building. Basically, the convention is divided into the North building, which features mostly celebrity autographs/photos that you’d have to pay for. There’s also a lot of little shops, some PC gaming thing going on, and the Horror department. Not my thing, but it’s there for those who like that sort of thing. Anyways, the South Building, that’s where stuff like video games, anime, and the artists corner are found. Now that you know that, one of the shops in the NB were selling Pokemon plushies. I asked for how much the Yveltal one was, and they told me it was about $50… “straight from the Pokemon Center”. Well, I’m certainly not buying from them any time soon :P. Went to the South Building, many more of these paraphernalia stalls… and found another Yveltal, slightly bigger too. $30 I was told. Bought it. This is why it’s good to check out things.
Also, once I had that massive weight alleviated, I decided to just chase people around for pictures. My god. There were some really good ones. Shame I don’t have such a steady hand anymore, though a bunch of other factors contributed to that. You know what blew my mind though? Someone was cosplaying as Dust from Dust: An Elysian Tale. I couldn’t resist asking for that picture. I also took as many pictures of RWBY cosplayers as I could… unfortunately, I only have Ruby, Blake and Yang. I did see a few Jaunes, a couple of Weiss’s, a Sun, a Roman, a Pyrrha, and 1 Cinder. Oh, and a Neptune (if any of you are confused by those names, don’t worry, just go with it).
Overall though? I had a blast. I’m absolutely exhausted though. I’ll be posting some pics tomorrow, including my kind of far away group shot with the girls. But, since I have a high resolution camera, zooming will fix that. I mean, having a casual conversation with them was also the highlight of my trip.
I also saw sum_guy there. But since he never told me he’d be with someone, I wasn’t sure if it was him or not. So… “random question, but do you browse this site called Polygon?” “Cobie!”.
With that, take care guys!
Funny Enough I did meet Cobie but we never took a picture :S
I have a picture of you. You know what though? I knew that was going to happen. Taking a picture and then not realizing it was you. Ironically enough, it was exactly where we met up anyways xD.
I have some pictures (and video), but I’ll upload them tomorrow. I’m beat x_x.
Yes, of course Yang would want to fight the Green Arrow. That’s awesome. I accidentally got 3 pictures, since one was just me talking to them, and the other is a group shot. Twice XD.
There’s something deeply awesome about knowing you have something signed by 2 individuals. I made a good decision there.
And one with the famous Jessica Nigri as we re-enact the “Why don’t you call it the Quiver”
Oh god, that’s awesome xD.
Have fun xD.
I’ll most likely be wearing a Pokemon themed t-shirt. And I should have my 3DS on me as well for streetpassing.
Which is amusing to me because Nigri also does the voice of Cinder Fall in RWBY xD.
Of course she’d be doing one of her other cosplays here, since that’s her thing.
And hopefully I get to see Lindsay and Barbara in the alt-outfits of their characters.
She doesn’t have too much health, it’s actually hitting her and avoiding getting hit that make her a pain.
Woot! I’ll be there sometime tomorrow. So damn excited!
but mainly pattern recognition and knowing when to roll.
Mainly this. Once you learn what they’ll do and when, you just gotta unleash those sword abilities.
Took me forever to kill that bastard, but that was more learning his patterns.
This bitch here made me look up a video to figure out what the hell I was supposed to do to beat her. Fireballs that insta-break blades? What the fuck?
I eventually did beat her, but my god, much rage was had.
I usually try and fix it if that’s the case.
I do, just not those ones ;).
I don’t return stuff :P.
Unless it’s something that wasn’t mine to begin with.
Did you know I have a copy of Armored Core 5 for 360 still wrapped? Since the day it showed up when I ordered it? And later picked up Verdict day and AC5 on PS3 later on?
I also had a DS games, a 3DS and a couple other games still wrapped up.
I don’t usually do that, but for some reason I just never got around to playing them.
Plus it helps that the guy that’s being beat up is an asshole, so yeah, perfect gif.
I only replied to one comment. And that response boiled down to “this whole industry is a joke.”
I’m not exactly wrong there… even if I do eventually want a job in it. I wouldn’t mind working in it, I’d just have a problem with everything else.
Well, same thing happened. I own it on Wii, haven’t played it much, and I keep forgetting I have it. Tempted to get it on PSN once I get a Move controller though.
Some of the comments made me want to say, to them directly, “then why do you even care?!”
Okay, I’m done with reading comments on the new 3DS console. I don’t know why I thought it was a good idea, because it wasn’t.
The gaming industry in general right now is a joke.
