When Steven writes headlines for me
San Diego Comic-Con is a breeding ground for cosplay. You'll find everything from the most amateur of outfits to the best professional-grade costumes. People really like to dress up like the things they really like.
Square Enix's Play Arts Kai line is doing a limited color version (it's blue, the color is blue) Batman Arkham Knight doll billed as, "Square Enix's 2015 San Diego Comic Con Exclusive," but you don't have to go to SDCC to get...
San Diego Comic-Con!
San Diego Comic-Con is the biggest convention for all things geek in the world. A ton of cosplay happens at this show -- even celebrities cosplay! Mostly to hide from the public though.
But hey, here's a couple of mont...
Also, we are eight years old.
Monday is the worst day of the week, so Bill and I are coping with it by drinking blueberry smoothies and talking about wonderful things like superhero nonsense from Comic-Con, Mass Effect's exciting new (old) sharkmobile, Trine 2's awful poetry, Destiny's two unoriginal races, and True Detective, which Bill doesn't like, and therefore isn't allowed to have blueberry smoothies anymore.

Game of Thrones, Tales from the Borderlands, Walking Dead S3 -- so busy!
While we wait for the last episode in season two of The Walking Dead adventure game, Telltale president Kevin Bruner and Walking Dead writer Robert Kirkman have gone ahead and confirmed at Comic-Con (and on Twitter) that there will be a third season.
I wonder if that gives clues on how the last episode might play out.

Death Scythe Batman
Square Enix has partnered WB and DC for a PlayArts Kai line of Batman toys designed by Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts director Tetsuya Nomura. Not a single zipper in sight.
The first prototype, above, is gracing Comic Con and looking a bit like Death Scythe from Gundam Wing (with some Spawn in there, maybe).
