Lots of next-gen games are playable at Comic-Con

PS4 and Xbox One ready for play

We've just finished fighting the crowds of San Diego Comic-Con's preview night to get a lay of the land for this long weekend we have coming up. We noticed that the convention has decided to move the videogame booths to the opposite side of the hall from the movie and television booths, spreading out the foot traffic a bit. Nice move, Comic-Con.

We also noticed that there are lots of first-time opportunities for the public to play next-gen games here at SDCC 2013. If you're planning on coming to the event this weekend, here's what you can expect.

Sony has the PS4 behind glass for the public to check out, and they've brought a few next-gen games to go with it. Platformer Knack and racing title Driveclub are open for play, giving attendees their first taste of PS4's power. Octadad is already drawing nice crowds tonight. And though it's not next-gen, they have some slick Gran Turismo 6 setups on the floor to try out.

Microsoft has a large presence opposite Sony's booth. Ryse: Son of Rome and Killer Instinct already have lines forming in front of them. And I hear that at the Grand Hyatt other games will be available, like Dead Rising 3

Ubisoft has a huge ship at dock right outside the convention center. On this Jackdaw you'll be able to try out Assassin's Creed 4 -- we plan to set sail this weekend, so stay tuned for that. Landlubbers will get to see Watch Dogs back inside.

So is the plural of waifu "waifus" or just "waifu"? I want to make sure I have it right when referring to my harem.

Holy shit, App Store. The copyright infringement is real. I didn't buy it, because I'm scared it'll make my iPhone explode and because the comments say the game's a generic zombie title with fake and misleading screenshots.

Playing Halo 5: Guardians, got REALLY invested in this one match. It was intense from beginning to end and I was using A LOT of Power Weapons because it was so fun. We were literally seconds away from victory when the internet cut off. So disappointed. :(

Fuck it. Fuck Blighttown. Fuck it's poison blow dart campers. Fuck the mosquito freaks. Fuck the fire-breathing bitches. Fuck the lack of visibility. Fuck it's pitfalls. Fuck the fact that I'm going back after 5 minutes of self-loathing.

You know what the weirdest part about having selective hemophobia is? Getting freaked out by an anime like Elfen Lied but being 100% fine with shit like this.
