Comic books, anime, & video games. That stuff is all the same nowadays. The LVCE could be the future of Las Vegas' comic book community. Gouki.com is looking forward to this event. >.> There's a cosplay contest, did I mention that?
From the LVCE:
Las Vegas, NV – is welcoming their very own comic con in the form of the inaugural Las Vegas Comic Expo (www.LasVegasComicExpo.com ) to be held on September 29-30, 2012 at the Alexis Park All-Suite Resort.
WHAT: Las Vegas Comic Expo (A Comic Book, Entertainment & Pop Culture Convention)
WHERE: Riviera Hotel & Casino (On the Strip)
2901 Las Vegas Blvd. South, Las Vegas, NV 89109
WHEN: Saturday-Sunday September 29-30, 2012
WHO: Open to all ages. A family friendly event
COST: $25 Daily Admission
$40 Weekend Pass (Discounts available for advance ticket purchase)
Confirmed guests include Mike Mignola (Hellboy Creator); Len Wein (Swamp Thing, Wolverine); J. Scott Campbell (The Amazing Spider-Man); David Finch (Batman: The Dark Knight); Mark Brooks (X-men Legacy); Simon Bisley (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Heavy Metal Magazine); Eric Canete (Iron Man: Enter the Mandarin); Drew Johnson (Wonder Woman); as well as some of the artists behind the year’s most highly anticipated series “Before Watchmen” including Adam Hughes and JG Jones. Additionally, the man of many hats, Iain McCaig (Star Wars Episode I-III, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) will be appearing to share about his career as illustrator, cover artist, designer, director and producer!
Super heroes are big business today. Any doubters can simply look at the film industry where just 3 movies; Marvel's The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man, and Batman: The Dark Knight Rises, each debuted in the #1 position the week of their release and in total have cumulatively surpassed the $1 billion gross ticket sales.
Comic book folklore isn't only limited to the big screen, one of the hottest shows is AMC's The Walking Dead, which is based on the comic series, whose #100 issue sold nearly 400,000 copies, making it the best selling comic book of the century.
Where some thought comic book culture was once for nerds, now its part of the mainstream pop culture of today where it's “chic to be geek”. San Diego's Comic Con brings a sellout crowd of over 125,000 attendees every year, which is explosive growth from its origins in the 1970's where less than 1,000 showed up, and now brings in over $60 million in commerce to the local San Diego economy.

Charles Lee, organizer of the Las Vegas Comic Expo stated, "Las Vegas has widely been known as an ideal destination for conventions. In speaking with comic book merchants and enthusiasts, there has been an appetite for such an event for a long time." This two-day event is a pop culture extravaganza touting scheduled appearances of more than 40 of the top names in comic books from the past and present. This event is spread across 3 exhibit halls and will be jam packed with exhibitors buying, selling, and trading rare collectibles, enjoying gaming areas, costume contests, entertaining panel discussions, and much more.
The purpose of the Las Vegas Comic Expo is to unite the fans and the celebrities within the comic book hobby world together in a fun, family friendly setting.

This is an animated short of Princess Celestia and Princess Luna trying to play Portal 2 and the frustration of Luna being an idiot. Warning, lot of insults and profanity dumped on the Princess of the Night.
This is loosely video game related but it does require a gamers knowledge of FPS's and the Portal series.

In a bombed-out church, at the height of the apocalypse, the last of humanity huddles in fear, as both doom and Death reach their very front door.
I'm not sure why every game needs a live action trailer nowadays, nothing to do with gameplay, but it looks pretty cool. You have to "like" their page on facebook to see the extended version, don't bother it's just more of the priest jimmy talking.

Altair, Ezio, and Desmond. All 3 will be playable, and with this last installment of Assassin's Creed, and the bitter sweet goodbye that we will all have for having to say goodbye to another awesome series, let's dive into what is out so far.
The 4th game of the Assassin's Creed series promises to not only blow our minds but go above and beyond to go out with a bang. This video displays a taste of what is to come with a bit of mystery, action, and gameplay. What could that door of light at the end mean? I personally cannot wait for this game, having beaten the first 3, this is what it all comes down to. Also, pre-order your copy early!
