HBO Trademarks

If you like bizarre soap opera storylines and the supernatural, then I dare I say you’re a fan of HBO’s True Blood. The hit show is currently in its fifth season. During Comic-Con 2012 I attended a panel for the show featuring everyone’s favorite Bon Temps residents like, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell), Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten),  Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley), Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård), Roman  (Christopher Meloni), Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten), and Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello). Series creator Alan Ball was also on the panel.

Alan Ball noted on more than one occasion that he will not return for season 6, which will air in June 2013. A few fans asked during Q&A if the TV show would begin to dip more into the book series for which the show is loosely based, "The Southern Vampire Mysteries." These plotlines include the Fairy Wars and the introduction of weretigers. While Alan Ball did not confirm the next season would include any of these, he did say it was possible, giving fans in the audience, and everywhere, hope.

 Marvel Celebrates 30 Years Of Marvel Games At Comic-Con 2012

It's hard to believe, but we've been enjoying Marvel games for 30 years now. Turning 30 is never easy for anyone, but Marvel's interactive arm seems to be taking it in stride and celebrated heartily at their Comic-Con 2012 panel.

In 1982, Marvel released Spider-Man for the Atari 2600 and they kicked off their panel by showing the seemingly-ancient television commercial for the game. It was the comic book giant's first foray into computerized entertainment, and in 30 years, they've come a long way. To illustrate just how far games have come, the Marvel gang screened the trailer for the recently released The Amazing Spider-Man. The newest Marvel offering was met with critical acclaim from game critics (Read our The Amazing Spider-Man Review.), and the trailer was a big hit with the crowd.

Not ones to dwell in the past, however, the panel soon moved on to upcoming titles set in the Marvel universe.

Assassin's Creed 3 Comic-Con 2012 Panel: Five Things We Learned About Ubisoft's Latest Adventure

At Comic-Con 2012, Alex Hutchinson, Creative Director, lead an equally informative and entertaining panel about Assassin's Creed 3. The panel revealed a lot of interesting facts about the development of the game. Here are the five most intriguing things we learned during the Assassin's Creed 3 Comic-Con 2012 panel!

The Weapons Are Going To Be Totally Bad Ass

Setting the game in American naturally changes some aspects of gameplay, and one of those is the weapons available to Conner, the game's Native American lead character. "A native American lead seemed like the perfect fit," Hutchinson explained. Neither British or American, Connor allowed the team to use a main character who was removed fray, but who also had new arsenal of weapons at his disposal. 

Conner is a dual weapons specialist, who wields a tomahawk along with other close combat weapons, and mid-range options like a bow and arrow. There will also be guns, so don't worry. One of the tools that caught my eye during the demo was the Rope Dart. It's sort of like a grappling hook with noose on the end of it. Shooting the rope dart over, say, a tree limb, allows you to hang targets silently. It looks incredibly wicked.

With a Native American lead character, it seems natural to wonder whether or not players will be able to use scalping as a kill. Hutchinson addressed it head on: "We had it in for a very short while. There are some horrible histories of colonial towns offering bounties. When we dug into it deeper, we found it really terrifying. We didn't want the picture on YouTube of 100 dead soldiers all scalped."

So that looks like a big "no."
