So after the joys and tribulations of EuroGamer’s Expo at Earl’s Court, the weekend just gone, it’s time for the twice a year, Comic-Con to do their thing. MCM Comic Con is primarily an Expo for anime and sci-fi fans to get together and Cosplay some of the most extreme characters. When VGN attended last year, we were met with Pikachu and Tamaki Suoh to Nyan Cat and R2D2. It’s an event for people who like a host of fantasy and comic things, rather than just videogames.
Nintendo are truly embracing the DLC bandwagon, that I for one hate. With any luck, Nintendo do what Nintendo always have done – create quality games and then also create quality DLC, unlike many other developers out there who fix broken games with broken patches.

Activision has released a teaser trailer for Call of Duty Black Ops 2 showing that the zombies are returning to the game.

In Nintendo’s Direct conference, more details came out surrounding Ubisoft’s Zombie-em-up, ZombiU. Set in a London that has been ravaged with a Zombie outbreak gamers play a group of survivors on a mission to get out of the city and survive.

Well it has been approximatley an hour and a half since the Nintendo Europe presentation and we are already starting to get the first prices for the Wii U console and its games.

Capcom have exclusively announced that Monster Hunter 3 will be coming to Europe in March 2013. What we do know is that a 3DS version will release on the same day.
