#NYCC Rant: The Lines

This year’s New York Comic Con was far from my best ever convention experience. There were cases where I missed panels I wanted to see. Some were missed because of bad time management by myself but there were some there was one where panel campers kept me out the panels I really wanted to see.

The key panel I really wanted to see was the Nintendo Communities panel. I literally got there a few minutes after the panel started. The guy guarding the door told me the panel was full. I noted the people leaving the panel but he still insisted that it was full. I looked out of curiosity I looked at the panel room’s schedule and saw that “King of the Nerds” (a major network show) and a voice actors panel were next. Then I knew there were campers in the room and they were what kept me there.

I know this sounds like a rant about how I got screwed over, but it’s has been a problem in past NYCC’s. I know someone who has waited 5 hours for a panel but got denied. NYCC pretty much does nothing to clear out the room for the next game.

If NYCC wants to become more enjoyable they need make sure that people can enjoy panels without worry about getting beaten by campers. NYCC must stop rewarding campers and stop punishing those who want to enjoy ALL of the convention.

Going to #NYCC 2013

NYCC-2012-Panorama3

This coming weekend I will be at New York Comic Con. It’s pretty much the biggest convention I go to.

I don’t have an exact plan, but Some of the thing I would like to do are as follows:

  • Catch the Chucky Panel.
  • Compete in The Next Level Tournament.
  • Take pictures of cosplayers.
  • Get some photo ops and autographs.
  • Take pictures of some cosplayers.
  • Catch the Robot Chicken panel.
  • Find way to buy Pokemon X and Y.
  • Catch the Nintendo Fan panel.
  • Catch the Midtown Comics after parties.
  • Take Pictures of Cosplayers.

And that’s pretty much it!

I went to New York Comic Con this weekend. And it was FUN! It would have been more fun if I had a press pass but I still enjoyed myself. There were a lot of events in and out the venue and it was definitely a well needed break from “normal life”. Continue reading
