Rezzed 2017 – The Experience

This year it was a different Rezzed for me. I couldn’t make it all three days, having only time for the closing and busiest day of the event, Saturday. Because of it I decided not to book many appointments, only settling for three: Square Enix Collective, Bandai Namco and the devs of Formula Fusion. The last one intrigued me despite not being one of my usual genres. Continue reading Rezzed 2017 – The Experience

MCM London Comic Con – Interview: Tom Mison – Sleepy Hollow

Yesterday I gave you the transcription for the interview with the cast of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and as I promised, today we have the man fronting Sleepy Hollow, Tom Mison.

Before I begin, I will say that Tom is the nicest guy in the world and very funny. He joked around as much as possible during the interview and went quite dark with his humour a few times, particularly when we mentioned that Crane might head to Washington in the next season, as he would love the show to acknowledge Trump’s rise to political power and the dark force that has to be behind it.

There are so many people there, from organisers, artists, cosplayers and everyone else. It is absolutely massive.

This was my first Comic Con and not only was it a fantastic personal experience and I geeked out like I never have before, but it was also a monumental experience as runner/editor/writer of The Mental Attic. Why? Because I attended the MCM London Comic Con as Press. Continue reading MCM London Comic Con – My first ever Con!

EGX 2015 – First Timer’s Perspective

This was my first ever EGX, following up from my first ever Rezzed. Over the past few days I’ve given you some short recaps of how it all went down: who did I meet, what games I tried and what kind of stuff blew me away. But I haven’t gone into what I thought about the event itself. Let’s get to that. Continue reading EGX 2015 – First Timer’s Perspective
