Telltale will be at Comic-con this year!

  • Totally worth going in today. I randomly met Mike Stemmle when I walked in, and randomly met Steve Purcell about 5 times.

  • "Randomly" met Steve Purcell 5 times? mmhmm lol

  • I just got back from Comic-Con. It was freaking awesome! I met lots of great people, but most importantly to the people reading this site, I met Steve Purcell. Allen and I actually had quite a bit of time to chat with the main man himself while making our way back over to the Telltale booth after the panel. We felt like VIPs. Back at the booth, I also chatted with Chuck Jordan, Jake Rodkin, and briefly with Mark Darin.

    Before any Strong Bad fans ask, no, the Chapman brothers weren't there. Personally, there were only a few people that I regret not being able to meet. One of them being Dave Grossman. He left the other day. That really sucks, I know. I was also hoping to meet Ron Gilbert (wherever he may be), but no such luck.

    I have to give special thanks to Steve Purcell for signing not one, but five things that I brought along. I'd also like to thank Jake Rodkin for not beating me up over that "downtime e-mail" that I sent last year. I don't know what I was thinking when I wrote that.

    I'll try to post a complete blog update tomorrow or Monday about the Telltale panel, and other things that caught my eye. Obviously, though, there was certain "stuff" that I wasn't allowed to film, but I have a feeling that "stuff" will be released by Telltale at some point (soon, maybe).

  • Man, I hate living in the UK, I miss all the decent stuff!.

  • I uploaded my photo set from Comic-Con to Flickr, for anyone that is interested:

    Your NOT alone... at least there is more of these kind of conventions going on in Europe than in south America where we have NONE >_

  • sure, but what are conventions good for, if no one from telltale shows up. have they been to cons outside the us so far? i totally hope telltale will have a booth at games convention somewhere in the future...

    don't be sad, he probably just didn't recognize you. i'm sure, if you tell him, you should be able to receive your proper beatin' next year..;)

    Oh, Jake recognized me. The first thing that he said was, "Am I suppose to beat you up?" I think that Allen got to him before I did, though.

  • Oh I have a story that amused me...I was waiting outside the room for Steve's spotlight panel with my brother and friends (and Plush Max) when Steve wandered up, looking a tad baffled. I called out "Steeeeeeeve! :D" and he came and sat with us and started telling me about how he was expecting a smaller room and he hoped this one didn't end up half-empty and all that. A few minutes later he went to go make sure there was someone in the room who would know how to run the computer presentation on the screen. My friends (who hadn't said anything until then) all looked at me and were like "That was Steve Purcell!! D: D: D:" Their expressions were just funny. ;)

  • ^ Heh, that's awesome. I'd probably act the same way. :p Steve Purcell is one of the very few famous folk I'd actually be hyped about meeting.
