Sid Shuman's Avatar Posted by on Jul 23, 2011 // Director, SIEA Social Media


Comic-Con 2011 has dominated gaming headlines this week, and the action isn’t over yet. Top stories on the PlayStation.Blog this week included a first look at the Green-Lantern-themed “Fight for the Light” expansion coming to DC Universe Online this summer, first gameplay footage and screens from the eye-catching PSN-exclusive platformer Sideway: New York, a new look at the upcoming PSN title Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, a new Q&A with the creators of the PSN co-op team shooter Payday: The Heist, a look into the troubled subconscious of next week’s psychological adventure-puzzle game Catherine, and the launch of retro shoot ’em up Scribble Shooter in PlayStation Home.

And the PlayStation Comic-Con panel fun continues this weekend: At 6pm tonight, Twisted Metal co-director David Jaffe will reveal a Twisted trailer and a new boss in room 5AB; at 10am on Sunday, Starhawk’s creative director, writer and senior producer will discuss the genesis of the game’s sci-fi universe in room 25AB. And iff you’re admiring the UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception limited-edition cover art poster shown above, it could be yours this Sunday: celebrated artist Adam Hughes will be signing them in room AA3 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Sony came out swinging at this year’s Comic-Con! Man, the show booth is packed every time I head over there. Plus, it’s SO big Sid! I was quite fortunate to attend the Journey, Resistance 3, and UNCHARTED 3’s panels. I got a chance to meet Kellee Santiago of thatgamecompany and talk to her about Journey, she is SUPER nice and knows her craft so well. Marcus Smith of Insomniac Games was awesome and showed some amazing new gameplay videos. The UNCHARTED 3 panel was amazing. Hearing Amy Henning, Nolan North, Emily Rose, Richard, etc. talk about making the game was interesting to hear. LOVED the part where Nolan North said that j.J. Abrams met him and congratulated him on UNCHARTED 2’s opening, saying it’s the best opening of any media, ever. The only thing that topped that was when they said they would play Nathan, Elena, and Sully respectively if asked to.

I’m Playing: Everything at Son’y PlayStation booth at Comic-Con.

I’m watching: Friends With Benefits and Captain America.

I’m Reading: Claymore Manga and Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season Eight.

I was an attendee at this year’s SDCC, and I have to say Playstation ruled the gaming section of Comic-con!! The show floor booth was by far the best and biggest, with all titles playable and awesome goodies that were given out. The Ratchet arcade cabinet for all 4 one was freaking epic!!
I’m glad to say that I was at the Uncharted 3 panel, because it rocked so hard I couldn’t stop smiling and laughing. The Twisted Metal panel was also cool, but I was hoping for some t-shirt giveaway :(
Unfortunately I did not have a pass for thursday, so I missed Resistance 3 and Journey.
Thank you for all the nice touches to the booth, it looked really nice with all the banners hanging and as well for the large presence at the panels!!

@ Butters360
BTW, I was the guy who asked Nolan North, Emily and Richard the question that if asked to, would they consider playing themselves in an Uncharted movie roll! ha ha!
Thank you saying it was a good question and consequent answer from the guys!!


+ Butters360 on July 23rd, 2011 at 11:46 pm said:

@ Snakesmullet

That’s awesome man! Glad that the question was asked because I loved genuine reaction they all gave. Nolan, Emily, and Richard ARE their characters.

I wish someday I can attend one of these shows so I can totally geek out :P I really can’t wait to see more of Sideway though. It really looks like an impressive game. Hopefully the gameplay can match up to it!

I’m playing: Persona 3 Portable, BioShock 2… clearing out some of my backlog! Got in the mood for some P3P since Catherine is coming out in a few days! :D

I’m watching: Breaking Bad season 4 on AMC! What a great show, looking forward to tonight’s episode.

I’m reading: Since this is almost always empty, I’ll put in the PS Blog for bonus points :P

Get over the cross chat, it’s not gonna happen! If you need to talk to someone that bad, call them or play the same game as them. It’s not a big deal. Can’t wait for Disgaea 4, I’ve preordered the premium edition already.Goodbye sunshine, it was good while it lasted.
