NY Comic Con video recap: God-Damn-It-Lou-Ferrigno Edition

Lou Ferrigno is cool as hell. The dude gets licked by cheetas on the regular. As for me, I’m probably about as cool as the guy in the wife beater seen hanging out behind Lou in this clip from Pumping Iron. They didn’t hire me to work at Destructoid because I’m cool, they hired me because… Lou Ferrigno was unavailable? Really, that’s my only guess.

Lou Ferrigno was just one of the amazing sites at this year’s New York Comic Con. Probably the most astounding thing (that I didn’t get on tape) was a horde of tween-age girls tweeting on their twitters while awaiting the arrival of some sexy bastard named Sho Sakurai. I can distinctly remember a day when the closest thing to “anime” you could find at a Comic Con was a bootleg VHS tape of Robotech (and the closest thing you could find to a girl was a bootleg copy of Heavy Metal: The Movie.) Times have certianly changed.

There were also a lot of amazing videogames at the show this year. I tried my best to catch ’em all on video, but I’m sure I missed a bunch. Let me know what you think in the comments, and don’t be shy with the compliments. After what going toe-to-toe with Ferrigno has done to my ego, I’m in desperate need of some build up statements.
