Comic-con game pics


Recommended Posts

I uploaded a bunch of pics I took of games at Comic-con. It was tough getting good images between handholding the camera and the games moving so fast that the screen would come out all blurred, I selected the shots that came out moderately recognizable. Some games (like Metroid Prime 2) I shot a ton of images, but the game was movign so much that they were all blurry.


Anyway, you can find them here

One other thing. These are all just raw shots scaled down, if you want to see a particular one in more detail I can crop it, just ask.


The real shame was the Gradius V shots, again a fast moving game that moved too much while the shutter was open. The game looks fantastic though.

I didn't play anything! I simply didn't have time to wait in the lines, which for some games were more than 15 deep.


Jak 3 looked like a riot, the part I saw had the player driving some kind of gun-mounted truck (yes, like the Warthog), the guy playing was driving around and shooting a green laser like mad...


Metroid Prime 2 looked gorgeous. I think a touch better than the previous one.


Hot Shots Golf Fore looks sweet. I was easy to get pics of too because it doesn't move fast. One small thing I noticed is that when you putt and the ball starts to curve, the camera tilts to accentuate the curving motion...


I can't say too much about the RTS and RPG games as I don't play them enough to judge. Although LOTR: Battle for Middle Earth looked really incredible.

Oh sweet, they're doing the Mospeada series of Robotech as a game? That was my favorite part. I always had a soft spot for those bikes that turned into armor

Yep! The New Generation/Invid Invasion/Mospeada was my favorite of the Robotech series.


I wish I never traded in my RObotech Collection DVDs. :(

Thanks, Ed! I find it curious that many publishers / developers choose to show their games in 16x9 stretched mode, though. Sure, the widescreen LCDs and Plasmas look great, but showing off a squashed game just doesn't jive... to me...
