Event Coverage: Comic-Con Documentary Red Carpet Premiere

Morgon Spurlock is best known for his documentary “Super Size Me”, a movie about eating McDonalds fast food for 30 days straight and how it affects your body. This time around he is back to bring you the nitty gritty of the popular San Diego Comic-Con.

I was granted exclusive access to the red carpet premiere of “Comic Con Episode IV A Fans Hope” and it was unexpectedly star studded with well known industry names such as, Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead series creator), Stan Lee (Marvel), Joss Whedon (director of the upcoming The Avengers movie), and Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson, in the Avengers). In attendance were some of the stars of the movie such as Holly Conrad, and Bioware Community Manager Jessica Merizan.

Watch the video as I try to get my Red Carpet swag on, with special guest correspondents Jerry Amsterdam and Joel.

Talent order:

David Glanzer director of marketing and public relations for Comic-Con International.
Tank and Steph Werner. Mass Effect Costumers.
Jessica Merizan and Holly Conrad.
Clark Gregg, Agent Coulson in the Avengers movie.

Comic-Con Episode IV: A fans hope is now available on Video on Demand and iTunes. See the Trailer here.

Upcoming Mass Effect 3 DLC

EA and Bioware have announced two free DLC projects for Mass Effect 3.

The first, slated for release on April 10, 2012, is the Resurgence Pack. It is free DLC for ME3’s coop multiplayer mode. The expansion will include two new maps (hooray!) as well as new weapons, items, and playable races.

The second is Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut, which will include longer, expanded epilogical cinematics. Note that the existing endings won’t be changed, nor will one be provided with additional choices to inform different endings. Instead, “the goal of these new scenes is to provide additional clarity and closure to Mass Effect 3.” Expect this free DLC sometime in the summer of 2012.

[PS3 Review] Mass Effect 3

The Mass Effect series, which Bioware began in 2007, at last draws to a close—and it goes out with a bang. The review in brief: Mass Effect has a deep story and lore that are supported by fun and varied combat mechanics, great graphics that show off an original and unified environment aesthetic, thousands and thousands of lines of dialogue recorded by generally fine actors (many of whom you might well recognize, from Martin Sheen to half the cast of Battle Star Galactica), and a surprisingly engaging new online co-op mode. My concerns with the game are generally niggling criticisms that shouldn’t put you off from throwing yourself into the Mass Effect universe.
