Zipper Review

Zipper

With TV shows basically on break for the holiday season, there’s nothing I have to catch up on so it’s back to movie time. What to watch though was the problem because it feels like I haven’t turned on Netflix or checked out HBO in months. Anyway, it was time to go through my list and see what was gone, like I really know because there’s so many titles, and what was added back on. That’s how I came across this title. I had added it into my list a while back and it was removed. I remember this because I added it because Lena Headey was in it. Seeing it re-appear in my list made me say why not and watch. Keep reading to see if it was a worthy watch for my Saturday night movie.

Zipper is about Sam, played by Patrick Wilson, who basically has it all. He has an amazing job as a federal prosecutor with a great political future, a loving wife and mother to his child, Jennifer, played by Lena Headey, and a beautiful house to go along with it. There’s something basically missing in Sam’s life though since all he can do is jerk-off when he comes home from the office to some good old fashioned internet porn. The jerking-off to porn can only go so far though when he’s tempted at every corner by these beautiful women, so what’s a guy like that to do? Hire an escort service and basically put your job and political future in jeopardy as well as your marriage and maybe get an STD thrown in there for good measure.

When I read the small description Netflix gave for this movie, I thought maybe he had an affair at the office that turned bad especially since he had this flirtation with an intern, but this was not what I was expecting. It was a movie full of Sam just being with, because I don’t want to be crude in my review, escort after escort because it becomes an addiction. A really expensive addiction because apparently the going price for an escort is $1,000 an hour and up. For the first half of this movie his wife is basically clueless because she has her sights on this huge political future for her husband who she’s sacrificed so much for. The movie goes into how they both went to law school and she’s basically better than him but doesn’t have the political future that he would, which was a little insulting in a way because there are a lot of strong women in politics. Anyway, this isn’t the place for political debates, just a movie review. I found the movie to be over-gratuitous at times with the sex scenes and it made me debate turning the movie off more than once because I didn’t think they were tastefully done.

The cast for this movie was just OK. I hate saying that with a movie that has Lena Headey in it because I’m such a huge fan, but seriously this movie couldn’t be saved by the acting. The people playing the characters just didn’t fit the roles and it made the movie that much more worse as the movie just trudged along as it became a montage of random sex scenes.

Overall I give this movie a 1 out of 5.

I was expecting a lot more for my first normal Saturday night movie and it just didn’t deliver. The movie was filled with an over the top amount of sex scenes, jerking-off scenes, and just bland characters. Could this movie turned out differently and actually been good? Yes, I think if they went the more Fatal Attraction way of movies then yes. This movie was just disturbing in a way and not a good watch. I really wouldn’t recommend it, but if you’re one of those people that have to see for yourself then feel free, but prepare to be disappointed.

I Never Finished…Foosball 2012…Because (PS Vita)

Foosball 2012

This was one of those free games that I got because of PS+ once again. There was a little catch with this one though, not only was the PS Vita version of this game free, but so was the PS3 version. I figured that this was great because if I enjoyed one, I would probably enjoy the other. Like every game that ends up on this list, this one also went unfinished. Keep reading to find out why.

There basically isn’t a story to this game. It’s a sports game, so at the time there weren’t really stories with them. You picked your team and you played. It’s really as simple as that. There were different modes for this game from world tours to online mode. The world tours was my favorite because you started off easy then went to harder and harder matches. Not a bad game, especially when it was free.

I really enjoyed this game and had a fun time playing. I couldn’t find anything wrong with this game and when I wasn’t playing on my PS3, I was totally hooked on this game. Being an “old school” foosball player. Anyplace that had a foosball table or air hockey table was where I was at when I was younger, I really enjoyed this digital version of the game. So why did it go unfinished? A really stupid reason actually. My friend at the time didn’t have a PS Vita, only a PS3 and she wanted to play with someone on the PS3, so I dropped my PS Vita version of this game and played on the PS3 instead. I don’t have to tell you, but that game also became unfinished and will make its appearance on this list shortly.

As you can see, I was able to get 3 of the 12 trophies for this game. The game really isn’t that hard, but it’s just time consuming and if you’re into it all of the trophies are really possible except for one luck based one. If you play this game enough though and hone your skills, this trophy list shouldn’t be a problem. While I’m not OK with only getting 3 trophies, it’ll have to do.

Probability of this game getting played again…3 out of 5.

Even though I never picked up my PS Vita that much anymore, I have way too many games and no time to actually play each and every one of them, I would like to eventually play this game again. Since I usually use my PS Vita during hurricane blackouts, I guess we’ll have to wait until the next hurricane season to get his game installed on my Vita and play once more. Not that I’m looking forward to another hurricane or anything, believe me two in the past two years was totally enough.

So now it’s your turn. Did you also play this game on your PS Vita or did you play on the PS3? Love it? Hate it? Think it was a waste of time? Let me know in the comments section below and for next week another game I didn’t finish. Surprised right? Because at the time I was totally in love with my PS Vita, it just happens to be another PS Vita game that was also free. I’m telling you, I have a bunch of games for my PS Vita, and I probably paid for maybe two of them. Anyway, next week I’ll let you know why I never finished Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack.

This Week in Trophies 11-19-2017 – 11-25-2017

This was a pretty exciting week for trophies because I finally reached my 8,000th trophy. That’s some pretty exciting stuff, hitting a trophy milestone. It make the rest of the week just seem like you can basically do anything when it comes to trophies. Let’s get into my weekly breakdown so you can see what I played and what trophies I was able to get.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins – 27%

This game is just huge and it’s taking me forever to get through. I’m seriously not complaining though because I am genuinely enjoying every second of it. I think that this is a great game that has a bunch of exploration, a super story to go with it, and just a lot of things that were fixed from previous Assassin’s Creed games. I’m enjoying it so much that I’ll be streaming it all week.

Assassin's Creed OriginsAssassin's Creed OriginsAssassin's Creed OriginsAssassin's Creed OriginsAssassin's Creed OriginsAssassin's Creed OriginsAssassin's Creed OriginsAssassin's Creed OriginsAssassin's Creed Origins

Batman: The Enemy Within – 60%

The third episode for this game came out this week and I was able to play it. I can’t say much about it because I leave that for my reviews, which as you know because I tell you all the time, are seriously backed-up.

Batman: The Enemy WithinBatman: The Enemy WithinBatman: The Enemy WithinBatman: The Enemy WithinBatman: The Enemy WithinBatman: The Enemy Within

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – 52%

There’s only one trophy this week for this game, but it holds a special place in my heart because it was my 8,000th trophy. I went from hating trophies to loving them to getting to 8,000 of them. Anyway, at the moment I’m trying to level up as many characters a possible and working on the Barbarian. I’m not having a lot of fun with her and really can’t wait until she hits level 70 so I can move on.

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls

Star Wars Battlefront II – 33%

I finished the campaign mode this week and wow…that was really short. I mean I wasn’t expecting something of epic proportions but seriously it was only 10 hours at the most. Not really a campaign mode if you ask me. Not to mention the last mission completely glitched on me. Like glitched where I had to re-start the game and then when I restarted it my system completely crashed. Databases had to be rebuilt and it made me want to smash my controller into little tiny pieces.

That was it for this milestone week. 26 trophies to add to my collection. Next week is going to be a lot of Assassin’s Creed: Origins, but I’ll also be trying to finish up South Park: The Fractured But Whole as I’m playing my mastermind difficulty playthough. I’ll also try to get into some Star Wars Battlefront II multiplayer while playing some Diablo III: Reaper of Souls and getting back into the Sims 4. It’s going to be a busy week and I’ll let you know how things turn out next week.

Tentative Streaming Schedule for the Week of 11-26-2017 – 12-02-2017

Last week was a little rocky with the streaming schedule that I setup. In the middle, I finished my campaign of Star Wars Battlefront II and canceled one streaming session, but other than that everything ran pretty smoothly. With Star Wars Battlefront II campaign mode being completed, this week I’ll mostly be concentrating on Assassin’s Creed: Origins. Anyway, here’s my schedule for the week.

SUNDAY11-26-2017

5:00 pm – 7:00 pm – Assassin’s Creed: Origins

MONDAY11-27-2017

6:00 pm – 9:00 pm – Assassin’s Creed: Origins

6:00 pm – 9:00 pm – Assassin’s Creed: Origins

WEDNESDAY11-29-2017

THURSDAY11-30-2017

6:00 pm – 8 pm – Assassin’s Creed: Origins

FRIDAY12-01-2017

5:00 pm – 8:00 pm – Assassin’s Creed: Origins

SATURDAY12-02-2017

12:00 pm – 4:00 pm – Assassin’s Creed: Origins

There you have it. My schedule for the week. I don’t think I’ll be finishing Assassin’s Creed: Origins any time soon so that’s why it’s on the schedule for the whole week. While I’m not streaming, I’m trying to finish up some games that I’ve already streamed and once I do that then I’ll be adding a new game into the mix.

I am always looking for suggestions on what you want to see me stream. I’m even open to doing a co-op stream if anyone is interested let me know and we can set something up. Also, if you miss any of my live streams, you can now catch them on my YouTube channel.

Marvels Guardians of the Galaxy: A Telltale Series – Episode 4 – Who Needs You Review (PS4)

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series

After not liking this game series all that much in the beginning, it started growing on my the past few episodes to the point of where I was actually looking forward to this episode. That was mostly because of the cliffhanger ending to episode 3. When this episode finally came out I was pretty excited and made sure to play right away. You can watch my full playthrough of this episode here. Anyway, on with the review.

Episode 4 picks up right where episode 3 left off. You, as Peter Quill, either decided to power up the forge or destroy it. This can make your episode go in two different directions. Deciding to power up the forge myself, I quickly found it taken away by Hala, leader of the Kree. She’s going to use the forge to basically wake up an entire Kree army and take over the galaxy. After that you’ll find yourself in another choose me no choose me situation between Gamora and Rocket. You’ll once again have to make the choice of following your friend or following your potential love interest. It’s another no win situation as no matter what you’ll do you’ll piss off someone and potentially break up the guardians for good.

This was a pretty heavy episode that was pretty awesome. It had the crucial death of possibly two characters, which was shocking during my first playthrough, and it also told the tale of Drax and his daughter. The scene with Peter seeing inside of Drax’s memory was very poignant and it made a decision later on in the game either become very complicated or very simple depending on your own opinion and how your scene with Drax played out. This was probably the highlight of the episode as the rest of the episode was the usual deciding between Gamora and Rocket which seems to have become a staple point in this series. While this is getting a little over played and gives you some sigh worthy moments, the rest of the episode makes up for it with its action and adventure sequences. I think Telltale is best for really botching up their forth episodes and they don’t really do a good job of setting up the fifth and final episode, but this episode wasn’t like that and it was a pleasant surprise.

Unlike the decision problems that have been plaguing Batman: The Enemy Within and Minecraft: Story Mode – Season 2, this episode had no problem keeping up with the decisions that were made in previous episodes. This was a good thing and in a game where decisions matter, this is really crucial in the gameplay and playability of the game. The Quicktime events, like the episodes before worked great, even though one final Quicktime event did trip me up because it happened really quickly and I wasn’t sure what it wanted. There was a bit of a problem with the loading times unfortunately with this episode and loading times were longer and the game felt like it was going to stall during these times. By now you would think that these issues would be non-existent, but it seems like while the first few episodes come up strong and have stellar performance, the later ones suffer. I don’t know why it doesn’t this and can’t offer any insight, but it’s a problem that needs to be addressed. Other than that the game ran bug and glitch free.

While playing I felt a little less critical of the graphics this time around. They’re the same graphics that have been there since the first episode, but by this time I’ve pretty much gotten used to them to the point where they haven’t been affecting my gameplay at all. So for the first time in three other reviews, I won’t be complaining about them and just taking them for what they are.

Finish this episode and you’ll get yourself another 6 trophies closer to getting the platinum trophy for this game. Just one more episode to go and you’ll finally have the platinum. Just play how you want and follow the story and you’ll be good to go. I know these are easy trophies, but I feel like they’re easy because Telltale wants you to actually concentrate on the story they’re trying to tell and not worry about the trophies. The trophies are just an added bonus for playing. If you think of it like that then it makes the platinum trophies seem less cheap.

As always, there is no multiplayer, but there is crowd play. Use it if you want or go the route that I do and completely ignore it all together. Either way the choice is yours.

Overall I give this episode a 4.5 out of 5.

What’s Great:
+ Great story for this episode that ends on a what the hell kind of moment and sets up the final episode for this series.
+ Your decisions for this game actually matter as they carry over successfully from episode to episode.
+ Also the scene with Drax and his daughter was just done to perfection and setups one of the most toughest decisions of the series.

What’s Not So Great:
The loading times have taken a turn for the worst as not only was there an overload of them, but they seemed like they were going to stall the whole game out at any moment.
The constant choose me no choose me moments between Gamora and Rocket are becoming a little tiring.

I really did enjoy this episode though and am looking forward to the conclusion for what I’m assuming is only season one of this game. I think that it’s been successful enough that they’ll be making another season and there are so many possibilities to explore that it seems feasible that this will happen in the near future especially with The Walking Dead coming to an end. Anyway, since this game is so close to being finished, I would say that if you want to give this game a try this is probably the perfect time since if you take each episode slowly by the time you finish you’ll probably be getting ready to play the fifth episode since each episode release for this series has been consistent. If you want to wait for all five episodes to be released before playing, that’s totally understandable. I would say that if you’re a Guardians of the Galaxy fan you’ll want to pick this one up and even if you aren’t, like I was at first, you still might want to give this one a try.

Spoilers! Below are the choices that I made for the fourth episode.

Most Anticipated Game for December 2017

December 2017

The final month of the year is upon us and while it’s probably going to be lackluster in the game department, I’m pretty sure there is something coming out. Right? Anyway, not to worry because next year is going to be jammed packed with a bunch of games that will make up for it. Anyway, here’s what’s coming out in December.

*Just as a side note, my list of December releases is not perfect. There might be some missing, or some dates may change. If you have anything you want to add feel free to let me know in the comments and I’ll include it in the list.*

12/01/2017
DOOM VFR – PS4

12/05/2017
Steep Winter Games Edition – PS4
Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition – PS4
Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package – PS4

12/12/2017
Okami HD – PS4
Resident Evil 7 Biohazard Gold Edition – PS4

12/31/2017
De Blob – PS4

And that’s it for a super short release schedule for December. From this list, I will tell you that I’m not into the whole VR thing because I don’t think it’s worth it and feel like I will be throwing up every couple of minutes from the motion sickness so DOOM VFR is out for me. So are all these other games which means I’ll be working on my backlog.

Now it’s your turn, picking anything up in December or working on your backlog like me? If you haven’t already picked up Horizon Zero Dawn, now is a great chance to pick it up. It was a great game, you can read my review here, and you get the DLC for it. Win-win in my books. Anyway, let me know what you plan on playing in December in the comments section. Next year is going to be pretty huge for games and I’m super excited to be reporting what will be coming out starting with January 2018.

I Never Finished…Darksiders…Because

Darksiders

This was yet another one of those free PS+ games. I have to say that I really had no interest in playing this game at all, but this came out at a time where for about a week or so PSN had this weird blackout on certain consoles, and I was one of those consoles, and my friend at the time said that this game was so amazing that I just had to play it. Anyway, with nothing else to play (total lie, had a bunch of things to play), I decided to play this game. Now here it is on my I never finished list. Keep reading to find out why.

In this game you play as War. War is one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse who has unfortunately brought the apocalypse to Earth a little sooner then he should have because the seventh seal hasn’t been broken and the other horsemen aren’t there with him. Someone has set War up and this will be his journey to not only find who set him up but also redeem himself.

To be honest, even though this game had an interesting plot I found it to be completely boring. I played the first couple of missions, maybe since there’s not much I could remember about the game, and then gave up. Not because the game was hard or anything but just because I really couldn’t get into it no matter how hard I tried. Sometimes there are games that no matter how good someone else might think they are, they just aren’t to you and aren’t your type of game. I mean this game had all the means to be my kind of game, but it just wasn’t which was why I never finished it.

As you can see from the picture above I was able to get a totally sad 4 out of 43 trophies for this game. OUCH. Being a trophy hunter and not liking a game you’re playing sometimes is hard. Do you power through and get all of the trophies or do you just call it a day and say whatever? With this game I just called it a day as I got some trophies for completing missions and some random trophies as well.

Probability of this game getting played again…2 out of 5.

I’ve admitted to this in the past that sometimes I’ve been too quick to actually judge a game and have done so wrongfully. This might be one of those games and I could see myself playing this game one day far far far into the future where I didn’t have anything else to play.

Now it’s your turn. Did you love this game? Hate it? Actually finish the game and can tell me that it’s worth giving it another try sooner than I want to? Let me know down I the comments section below and for next week, another PS Vita game that I got for free. I also got it for free on the PS3, but decided to play it on the PS Vita first. Spoiler alert though, I also never finished it on the PS3. Anyway, next week I’ll let you know why I never finished Foosball 2012.

This Week in Trophies 11-12-2017 – 11-18-2017

This was a pretty exciting week for trophies as I played bunch of games, started two new games (like I needed to start more games), got one platinum trophy, and overall got a pretty decent amount of trophies for a week where I was pretty busy too. Anyway, on with the trophy breakdown.

Minecraft: Story Mode – Season 2 – 80%

I played the latest episode for this game and completed it. You can watch my full playthrough of the episode here, but you’ll have to wait just a little while longer for my full review of the episode.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy – A Telltale Series – 100%

As with Minecraft: Story Mode – Season 2, I finished the episode, got my platinum trophy and you’ll have to wait once again for another review for this game. Sorry that my reviews are so backed up. Anyway, while you wait, you can also check out my full playthrough of the episode here.

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – 51%

I finally finished my first of many playthroughs of this game and actually was able to start bounties and rifts along with Act V on this game. I really enjoyed the extra act and I’m enjoying working on the bounties and rifts. As much as I enjoy those, I’m also looking forward to playing as the other characters and getting them to level 70 as well as my hardcore mode. Anyone looking to do a hardcore run through this game? Let me know and we can set something up.

Diablo III: Reaper of SoulsDiablo III: Reaper of SoulsDiablo III: Reaper of SoulsDiablo III: Reaper of SoulsDiablo III: Reaper of Souls

Assassin’s Creed: Origins – 10%

I can’t remember when I actually had this much fun playing an Assassin’s Creed game. This game is truly amazing and I’m enjoying every single second of it. I enjoy just running around and doing side quests and working on the main story which I’m really not that far into. This really feels like an Assassin’s Creed game, just amped up from its break. I’ve been streaming this on a weekly basis, but if you miss my streams you can check out my adventures on my YouTube channel.

Assassin's Creed: OriginsAssassin's Creed: OriginsAssassin's Creed: OriginsAssassin's Creed: Origins

Star Wars Battlefront II – 7%

I know, I know, I’ve never seen a Star Wars movie, although I did see parts of Rogue One during my tattoo session. Anyway, I really enjoyed the first Battlefront and wanted to give this one a try. Right now I’m working on the campaign mode, but I’ll be getting into the multiplayer soon. You can watch me play the campaign mode on Twitch and if you want to set up a multiplayer session, let me know as not many of my friends are actually playing this game.

STAR WARS Battlefront IISTAR WARS Battlefront IISTAR WARS Battlefront IISTAR WARS Battlefront II

South Park: The Fractured But Whole – 91%

I got one more trophy for this game this week and the only one left is to play the whole game again on the hardest difficulty. This is going to be a chore, but I am going to try and power through it in order to get the platinum trophy hopefully before the end of the month and definitely before the end of the year.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole

The Sims 4 – 7%

Because I am an old school PC Sims gamer, I broke down and got this one for my PS4. So far I’m playing this game as much as I actually can. I might or might not have been late for work one day because of it, but that’s besides the point. The controls feel a little wonky to me, but I’m still having a blast.

The Sims 4The Sims 4The Sims 4The Sims 4The Sims 4

A really nice week for trophies if I don’t say so myself. Next week should be pretty similar minus the platinum trophy because I have some extra time off thanks to the Thanksgiving holiday. I plan on continuing to play Assassin’s Creed Origins, Star Wars Battlefront II, The Sims 4, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, and will try to find time to get the latest episode of Batman: The Enemy Within played this week. Come back next week to see how I did. In the meantime, I hope that everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving filled with a bunch of food and gaming.

Tentative Streaming Schedule for the Week of 11-19-2017 – 11-25-2017

I think that last week I did a pretty good job sticking to my streaming schedule which was pretty awesome. Good on me. This week is going to be a little messed up though because of the Thanksgiving holiday, but I still have some sort of schedule that I threw together that should work. So, here it is.

Please remember that all my times are for an eastern time zone. I’m far from finishing Assassin’s Creed: Origins, so I’m thinking this is going to be on the schedule for a while. I’ll also be starting Star Wars Battlefront II in campaign mode before I switch it over to the multiplayer.

I am always looking for suggestions on what you want to see me stream. I’m even open to doing a co-op stream if anyone is interested let me know and we can set something up or let me know if you want in on my stream of Star Wars Battlefront II when I dip my toes into the multiplayer. I’m still occasionally playing Diablo III even though I beat it, but am willing to set up a new character and a special stream if anyone wants to play.

The Countdown to MegaCon 2018 – Part 1

With the start of November, came MegaCon’s first major guest announcement along with ticket prices and ticket sale dates. I want to discuss all of that and let’s start off by doing that and discussing the first major guest announcement that MegaCon has to offer.

MegaCon’s first major guest announcement is legendary creator Jim Lee. Jim Lee is a comic book artist writer editor and publisher who entered the industry in 1987 as an artist from Marvel comics. Lee then went on to start his own publishing company, Image Comics, before selling in 1998 to DC comics.

Jim Lee

I think this was a great first guest announcement because I was really curious as to who they were going to replace Stan Lee with since last year was his last appearance. I was kind of nervous though that Stan Lee would be making a return, although that would’ve been great, I’m kind a happy that he’s not and they have someone new to focus on. I think that even though I’m not that excited that Jim Lee will be there, I know that a lot of people are going to look forward to meeting him.

Now that we have the first guest announcement out-of-the-way, let’s talk about tickets. Tickets went on sale November 15, if you bought VIP tickets last year then you are already in on the pre-sale for this year‘s VIP tickets. If you were included in this pre-sale of VIP tickets I would hope that you picked them up because they go out really fast especially once the bigger guest announcements start coming in, I already have mine and I am set and ready to go to next years MegaCon.

If you didn’t get VIP tickets last year and you have to wait like everyone else to purchase your tickets on November 15. Let’s go into a quick breakdown of the tickets that you can get and their prices.

First you have the single day passes that’s if you plan on going just one day and only one day. The prices for single day passes have kind of increased and they go from Thursday at $20 in advance $25 at the door to Friday $35 in advance $40 at the door to Saturday $50 and advanced $55 at the door and Sunday $40 in advanced and $45 at the door.

I have to say that new to all the tickets is that they have are refundable tickets now. I’m assuming that this is because people get so hyped up when a guest is announced and then when a guest cancels for whatever reason they get pissy and now they have the option to get a refundable ticket instead of saying something like, “how they wasted money buying a ticket blah blah blah,” but in order to get that refund refundable ticket you are going to have to pay extra.

If you’re looking to go to MegaCon all four days and just want to standard pass it’s $99 in advance $110 at the door. This will also give you early access on Thursday and you’ll be able to get in at 2 PM instead of 4 PM. This is a great option if you just want to go and experience what MegaCon is like and you’re not really concentrating on celebrity guests and photo ops.

There’s also the addition of a family pass now that includes two adults and up to four children ages 6 to 12. These go by the day and for Thursday it’s $45 in advance $55 at the door, Friday $75 in advance and $85 at the door, Saturday $110 in advance and $120 at the door, and Sunday $85 in advance and $95 at the door. There’s also the option to buy a child pass which is $10 in advance and $10 at the door and this is for any child ages 6 to 12.

Getting into the premium pass now you get all four days to MegaCon for $139 in advance, these tickets are not available at the door, and with this package there are a bunch of different collectibles, exclusive‘s and all of the goodies that you get including a free single day general admission excluding Saturday to all Fan Expo HQ events until next year‘s MegaCon. You’ll also be able to get in on Thursday at 2 PM instead of 4 PM. It’s not a bad deal and I went for this one in 2016 and was pretty happy with it at the time.

Then you have the VIP package which is $429 in advance and not available at the door. This will sell out quickly depending on who they start announcing will be at MegaCon so my suggestion is that if you are going there to meet a bunch of celebrity guests and you want to go to see a bunch of celebrity panels then this is really the option for you because not only do you get all of the things that are included in the premium package but you also get some extra goodies thrown in there for being a VIP and you basically get to cut the line on the celebrity autograph lines and the photo up lines. Getting to cut the line for the autographs and photo ops is one of the perks of having this pass as well as getting 1st to 5th row seating at the major panels.

No matter the package or passes that you get though you’re bound to have a great time because there’s one thing that MegaCon does and it’s put on a really great show every time even with cancellations and all that other stuff that goes with going to conventions they still manage to pull off a really great show every single year and it’s one of the things that keeps me coming back.

Pro tip – I know when the announcement of really big guest star coming it’s hard not to be extremely excited but don’t get yourself so excited that if that guest cancels it’s going to ruin your whole experience. One of the major things you should remember when going to a convention is not to bank on having that one celebrity guest there that you really really really really really want to meet because most likely they will cancel and you’ll feel like your dreams have been crushed, this happened to me on one occasion, and from then I’ve learned to be cautiously excited when a guest that I really want to meet is announced.

Now I want to hear from you guys. Is there anyone out there actually going to next year’s MegaCon? Are you excited about the first major guest announcement? Who are you hoping they announce next? Let me know in the comment section below and as usual when MegaCon starts rolling out more guest announcements I will be updating this blog and trying to give you the most up-to-date news as possible.
