Comic-Con 2010

New York Comic Con has now officially come and gone, but G4 was there and on the scene to bring back all the latest news and updates. Sadly, it wasn't exactly a banner  year for games at the show, despite a strong developer presence, but there were a few highlights to lead the way:

"The ComicCon’s videogame highlight was likely Rockstar’s surprise unveiling of Undead Nightmare, the zombie-filled downloadable content for Red Dead Redemption. The Manhattan-based company’s zombie-inspired booth had a dozen game kiosks, a hot DJ and two kinds of t-shirts for giveaways. During play, some of those zombies moved with the uncanny speed of The Flash, making you, as John Marston, rush to burn them with a torch or fire at them with a blunderbuss."

I realize that Comic-Con 2010 is but a distant, awesome memory at this point, but it's not too early to start preparing for Comic-Con 2011. I'm not just talking about reserving one of San Diego's fast-disappearing hotel rooms before they jack the price up to $500 a night, either. I'm talking Cosplay.

Comic-Con cosplayers take their "art" seriously, and so should you. Get a jump on the competition by checking out our comical guide to effective cosplay.

Nintendo's Wii MotionPlus Does Serious Business Despite Minimal Software Support

Nintendo is very proud of itself. The multinational gaming corporation has sold over 30 million Wii consoles, and that's just in the United States. According to Nintendo, this establishes Wii as the fastest-selling console in the history of video games, as it reached the 30 million-sold milestone 15 months faster than the next best-selling console.

Say what you will about Nintendo's commitment to hardcore gaming, it's pretty much undeniable that Nintendo has expanded the entire market of games to previously un-gamed segments of the population.

“More than any other video game system in history, Wii has expanded the world of video games to new audiences,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing in a statement. “This milestone is another reminder that people want fun games they can play with others – all at a value-minded price.”

Can we call Wii the winner of the "console wars" now?

What do you get when you attach a blade saw to a steel pole while drenching the saw in gasoline and then setting it on fire? I called it "Inferno Pain."
