London MCM Expo

Came back from the madness that was London MCM Expo yesterday.

It was very busy, but fun stuff. I played some games, picked up a few trinkets and books, and also got to attend the Q&A session for Ubisoft developers Raphael Dominguez and Mathieu Gagnon for the upcoming game Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, as well as an Avatar presentation showing some exclusive never-before-seen scenes of Avatar which will be added to the new 'Collectors Edition' Blu-Ray DVD. This included a new opening sequence highlighting Jake's background, a Na'vi hunting scene along with some more screen time with Sigourney Weaver. It doesn't look like it will add much to the story, but it will undoubtedly please some hardcore fans.

As usual, there were plenty of cosplayers around dressed in all strange and wonderful costumes. Its crazy stuff, but always great to see as people unite and express their common interests. I saw Shabir at the expo, where I think he was eager to see Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in action. So perhaps Shabir will post his thoughts on the expo too.

Overall, despite some absurd prices, the London MCM Expo was good fun where I had a great, if tiring, day out.

I see you don't have a free hugs sign. Some of the people I got hugged by was kinda scarey.

Sounds like a great day out to me. Got to love those guys brave enough to cosplay too.

Yep brave people, especially the girls who end up having a bunch of guys staring/taking pictures of them all day. Its funny when two peeps bump into each other dressed as the same character - its like a stand off occurs as they eye each others handiwork.
