AND HERE WE GO!
DAY ONE, PART 1 - MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 3
The story for the game was revealed. Doctor Doom from the Marvel world teams up with Wesker from the Capcom world to take over both worlds. But in their attemp they awaken a big threat, something that will decide the "Fate of Two Worlds." DUN DUN DUUUUUUUN...
They revealed four costumes for Spider-Man. First was his regular suit and the other was his symbiote suit with the black and white. The third option was that Iron Man yellow / red armor suit, the one he wore during Civil War and MVP started using. A big surprise was that his fourth suit is the new outfit he is getting in Slott's upcoming ASM arc, Big Time that starts in November! Granted, I think these are all swaps but maybe just maybe we will be able to hear clanging noises when we strike Spidey's yellow and red suit? Seems reasonable but no confirmation on that.
I'm not sure if this is in current builds but I was able to spot Wolverine in his current X-Force outfit, complete with red eyes and everything! There was also a silver Iron Man who looked a lot like War Machine.
A funny moment at the panel was when someone asked for the Mega Man from the Battle Network series to be included in the game. EVERYONE BOO'D INCLUDING ME! :annoy: Seth said it doesn't seem like it's a popular choice. All Niitsuma said was that the Mega Man series will get some representation.
Ack well hoping for classic since I'm old enough to have played Mega Man 1 when it was new... :bashful:
but the RUMORED LISTS all say Zero. Even though all rumored lists have not proven to be entirely true, but moving along...
During the Marvel video game panel they will reveal the two Marvel characters. But they have already been leaked on the net anyway, check the internets. Ah well I'll head to the panel anyway to confirm / deny.

DAY ONE, PART 2 - EVERYTHING ELSE
Like always I was on an incredibly long line waiting to get into the show. A really cool moment was STAN THE MAN LEE was on one level above us and waved! The crowd naturally went nuts and started chanting his name!
They were giving out free grab bags on line of random stuff but I wasn't going crazy trying to grab one. It's cool because someone left theirs on the floor and I was able to snatch it up when the crowd started moving. SCORE! Of course once I looked in the bag I realized why the left it on the floor. There's some comics for wee little kids like those for Marvel Super Hero Squad and some Marvel Super Hero Squad toys! Oh well can't complain. I GOT IT FOR FREE!
The stage I was on was a customized stage, and you could spot the "New York Comic Con" banner in the background! If you are familiar with Mega Man Powered Up it was the same deal since companies made their own stages early on and were able to include their own logos. It does seem like a spiritual successor to Powered Up through and through. Capcom said the game itself is Mega Man 2 that you can play through with a Mega Man, Ryu or Arthur. But you can customize some stages if you don't like them and of course share your stages online with everybody!
I played the demo for Ghost Trick on the Nintendo DS. The stylus wasn't available but you could use your finger in the same way.
Both Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes and Dead Rising 2 were really crowded so didn't get to play them. Ah well it's all good since I'm picking up SB later this week when it drops and I still haven't gotten around to beating Dead Rising 1... I'll try to play them during the weekend if I can!
Went to Funimation and picked up season one of the Sengoku Basara anime on Blu-Ray, super early since it doesn't come out until later this week! GETCHA GUNS ON!
One thing about these cons is that they sell really overpriced food and beverages. I'm usually able to avoid food, sometimes just by chewing gum all day. They always have me on the beverages though since I live off of caffiene, for reals. So I'm always there buying 4 dollar sodas and 3 dollar cups of coffee. Well not this year! Five Hour Energy was in the hizouse giving out FREE BOTTLES! This long ass post is brought to you by Five Hour Energy otherwise I'd do my usual annual routine of falling asleep on the typewriter while posting all of this stuff... No worries, I will take it in moderation.
And off to the panels. The first one I attended was the X-Men panel. Gotta point out that there's a REALLY FUNNY movie Marvel showed before the panel with, you know that African American guy in those Old Spice commercials who says "Look at me, now look at your man. Now look at me, look at your man. Back to me," and so on? They got him to do an Avengers commercial where he's playing Luke Cage! It's HYSTERICAL! His big head is on top of what looks like a super deformed Luke Cage toy. He goes, "Look at me, now look at Modok (Modok toy appears). Look at me, now look at Sugar Man (Sugar Man toy appears)." And the horse he rides in the end turns out to be a toy of Beta Ray Bill, who says "I'M NOT A HORSE!"
For X-23's book they said that she will leave the X-Men and is going to pal around with Gambit for a while. Speaking of mentor / sidekick roles, if that's what that is... There's going to be a new series called Wolverine and Jubilee. Jubilee comes out of being a vampire or something like that but the change has had an effect on her that will alter the dynamic between Wolverine and Jubilee.
My favorite comic book writer, Peter David AKA PAD was on hand to talk about X-Factor. He said that someone is going to leave the X-Factor team, but it doesn't mean they will leave the book. He also said there is a flashback coming where Jamie AKA Multiple Man talks to NY Mayor J. Jonah Jameson about allowing his team to operate in NY. JJJ approves the team but he says something like, "This may never happen, but their may come a day when I ask you for a favor." And we go to present time when he asks X-Factor for that favor. THE PLOT THICKENS!
The big surprise was that they are going to put out comics for the upcoming Epic Mickey video game! The pages they showed looked gorgeous! One comic will take place before the video game. And hey if any of you are interested in Epic Mickey but don't have a Wii well they will put out a comic book adaptation of the entire game! Both the prequel comic and the adaptation will be available digitally first through iPhone apps, X-Box Live, PSN, etc. and later they will be printed as comics for retail.
Another pretty cool surprise is due to the amazing work Fantagraphics has done reprinting the old Peanuts strips, Disney has teamed up with them to put out some Carl Barks books (Donald Duck comics, created Uncle Scrooge and the Duck Tales cartoon was based on his comic) and some material from Floyd Gotfredson (best known for Mickey Mouse comic strips. He created the Phantom Blot who is the main villain behind Epic Mickey BTW). As soon as they started the Q&A session I asked about the Carl Barks books. I said that a lot of his older material costs way too much money and I was wondering if they were going to be priced fairly. The Disney rep asked me how much is too much and I said a hundred dollars. The entire crowd laughed - - but seriously, I am not joking about that. Like I told the crowd, hell his Omnibus set is a hundred dollars a pop for 10 volumes! Some of the Gladstone books go for $200 and up! I love Carl Barks and always look for reprints and trades when they are affordable, but damn trying to read all of his work will BREAK YOU. The Disney rep said that they are going to try to make the prices reasonable, with a range of fifty dollars or lower. THAT'S WHAT I'M TYPIN' 'BOUT! Then he said he actually hasn't confirmed the pricing with the people who do that stuff so if the book does come out costing a hundred dollars he apologizes. Ohs well, guess we'll see...
