July 27, 2007 - With Comic-Con ever-growing into a gaming show we - along with many other press outlets - stepped onto the showroom floor expecting gaming goodness by the boatloads, and while we got just that, most of it consists of the same E3 builds we saw just two weeks ago. True, Comic-Con is becoming the unofficial "E3 after-party," but at least that means we've got even more time with all the hottest games of this year, right?
There's only one thing that can attract more attention than a booth babe at a comic convention, and that's two booth babes in postage stamp-sized skirts at a comic convention. Sierra deployed this attention-grabbing move to bring foot traffic to a standstill in front of its booth.
Unfortunately for you, Comic-Con is a crowded, smelly, loud, smelly, somewhat expensive, smelly little event, and it isn't exactly cost-effective for everyone to fly out to San Diego just to play a few rounds of Heavenly Sword, Super Puzzle Fighter, or Zack & Wiki. For that reason we've whipped up the "Booth Breakdown," our own little virtual tour of each of the Comic-Con booths. You get the experience of Comic-Con without the nauseating stench, and we have a good reason to stalk the hot cosplay chicks for the 20th time; it's win/win. Enjoy.
What was in that booth? Well, wonder no longer, friend …
SWAT: Target Liberty (PSP)
Scarface: The World is Yours (Wii)
F.E.A.R. Files (360)
TimeShift (360)Geometry Wars: Galaxies (Wii)
It was a bit of an odd mix in the booth -- this was IGN's first shot at SWAT while Scarface has been out since June -- but Sierra has had no trouble getting folks to stop in and game their day away. It's rare to see FEAR or Geometry Wars idle.
