Day 2 at NYCC ’13 was a horrid slog; everything and everywhere was damp, my hangover was slowly crushing my will to live and I made the (stupid) decision to forgo the floor so I could check out a few panels.
Here’s the thing about Con panels: the only way you’re getting into the one you want is to camp out in the room that it’s evenutally going to be in. For hours if necessary (it always is). I wanted to check out the IGN GTA V panel, featuring the main actors from the game, which started at 5:15. I was in line at 1:15, then sat in line outside of a True Blood panel, then sat INSIDE during the new Legend of Zelda (the 17th!) game panel,/reveal (Lorule, how clever). THEN sat through the Big Ass Spider panel (which was excruciating), THEN sat through the GTA V panel. I was in/around this damn room for over 5 hours. By the end of it, i couldn’t have cared LESS about GTA V, Comic Con, swag, signatures, nuthin’. I just had to GET OUT.
So now two days are down and I would rate this the worst con I’ve been to. But just to make REALLY sure it’s terrible, I’m going back today. ’cause I’m a glutton.
More in store after the jump!
