My First Con!

Alex and I went to our first con last weekend! Daddy came too, but it wasn't his first convention. We went to Dallas ComicCon in Irving. It was a great little weekend trip (our anniversary celebration!).

This was our first out of town trip with the baby.
It was a little daunting, but overall it went really well.
He seemed to enjoy himself as well.

Our buddy, James, was by far the best Joker in the place.
Alex couldn't quite figure him out for most of the day.

Alex found someone's camera tripod and made it his toy.

The Dalek was super awesome!
There a was a kid there who was in a wheelchair.
That's pretty awesome cosplay if you ask me.

We got our picture taken with the TARDIS.
If you notice, Alex is not blinking.
We've raised him right.

I had a ton of fun and got a great Poison Ivy print to add to my collection. Going to a con with a baby was a little rough. He didn't like it when people applauded so we didn't get to listen to all of Kevin Conroy's Q&A. It was also crazy hot Saturday morning and Alex was getting really close to overheating. The staff were real jerks about it and kept pressuring us to go back outside. We ended up leaving to get lunch and just coming back in the afternoon. Overall, it was a great trip and I loved seeing all the cosplayers, good and bad. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I look forward to the next con we get to attend!

Do you ever...

Do you ever think you have too many comic books?

Yeah, me neither...

Afternoon Quickie: Borderlands 2

The gamer got Borderlands 2 for his birthday (you know, because I'm an awesome wifey =D). He's been playing pretty much as often as he can. He seems to be enjoying himself. Here's my impression of the game: It's neat and fans of the original will love it. As far as the wifey watchability test: it kinda sorta passes.

It's not the prettiest game, but it's not meant to be. It has some funny elements to it (Claptrap's beatboxing is probably my favorite part) and has a pretty good story to it. All the favorite characters from Borderlands reappear and the guys seemed to really pay attention to their fans and include jokes and whatnot that were well loved. Side note: there's a character in the game based on a big fan of Borderlands who passed away (that just's cool of the developers to include). There are also some neat Three Dog (Fallout) jokes.

Now, it is basically a run around and shoot stuff game. This means lots of lots shooting sounds, and you all know how much I loooooove endless shooting noise! The fights and quests can also take a bit of time which means you might watch a lot of game play without getting much in the way of dialogue and watchable story.

Overall, it's a really neat game and the gamer seems to love it. It's fun to watch for the little jokes here and there and the bits of humor sprinkled throughout, but I don't know that I could sit and watch it for too long.

Alright, well I was messages about this new site: which is a social networking site dedicated to gamers. Just signed up today and still getting my feet wet. Head on over and check it out. I've made a profile and "nook" for the blog and am still playing around with it. Have you tried this new site? Any tips for the new profile/nook?
