I got a chance to talk to Karen Dyer, the actor who plays Sheva in Resident Evil 5, about the motion capture process for the game, her crash course in pistol and rifle use, and what it's like to play yourself in a game. Check the video after the jump!
Hall H is the Comic-Con equivalent of the big game, all the biggest panels and previews are there. Even with 6000 seats in the theater, there were people lined up outside all day long to see Twilight, Avatar, and more! Check the video after the jump.
I'm, Will Smith, the editor of Maximum PC and the guy in the video below. We shot this video demonstration to show people how to build a killer PC, one step at a time. It's a great reference for beginners and experts alike. This video was created for viewing by attendees of Comic-Con 2009.
The first full day of Comic-Con is over, and we've returned to our hotel room shocked and amazed by the unbelievably cool movie panels and cosplay on display today. Once again, we've narrowed down our top ten sights from today's events for you to enjoy. James Cameron's Avatar, amazing Bioshock cosplay, and a hardcore Street Fighter fan are just a few of the sights that made the list. Just click the "Read More" link below this photo of Supergirl for the full story and more pics.
The first night of Comic-Con 2009 is finally over, and despite only being a quarter of a day (Wednesday's preview night lasted from 5:30 to 9PM), we're still wiped out from all the frenzy. Here are our favorite things we saw at the show today, easily digestible in 10 pictures and descriptions. Wish you were all here to share in the chaotic crowds, overbearing San Diego heat, and overall sweaty nerdiness. More updates from Thursday's panel events coming soon!
We’re constantly on the hunt for top-shelf PC performance—you’re not reading Bottom-Feeder PC, after all. When rendering our review verdicts, we do factor in price, but recommending a subpar product just because it’s cheap is sacrilege to us. Pricing can be relevant, but when it comes to videocards, we typically anchor our opinions on the toughest criteria we know of: 3D performance in the most demanding games on the market, at resolutions of 1920x1200 and higher and with all eye candy enabled.
While our editorial mantra might best be expressed as “better, faster, stronger” (hey, we should do a cover story on that!), there’s no escaping the fact that the videocard market boasts a broad spectrum of inexpensive—and intriguing—alternatives. In fact, as AMD and Nvidia have been battling for supremacy at the top of the market, we’ve watched the entry points for penultimate-performance videocards gradually but consistently come down to earth. Sure, playing Crysis on a 30-inch panel might be out of the question if you’re running one of the lower-priced cards, but we still wanted to discover the 3D tipping point—the point at which you’re better off giving up PC gaming altogether because the card you’re running is horribly, utterly lacking in horsepower.
The doors have officially opened and the madness has begun. Comic-Con 2009 is in full swing, and we've made the rounds in the main convention halls to catch the geek out in action. Tonight, we're bringing you a gallery of the sweetest, sexiest, and coolest toys we've seen so far. Many of these are from Sideshow Collectibles, but we also have shots of figures from DC direct, Hasbro, and other manufacturers. This is just a small sampling of what's on display behind glass shelves here, and we'll continue grabbing photos of any other toys that catch our eyes. Enjoy!

As the setup for tonight's Comic-Con 2009 opening continues, we've managed to sneak inside yet again to see how the show floor looks one day later. Vendors and studios are putting the final touches to their booths, some even shielding big props with curtains to hide big reveals from curious eyes. This afternoon's gallery has highlights from Sideshow Collectible's famous booth, Hasbro's GI Joe presence, and Warner Bros.'s giant tumble weed. We're just as confused as you. Confirmed, though, is the presence of the Black Hornet's car and an Iron Man 2 armory with at least 4 full-size suits on display. Check back tonight as we'll post coverage from tonight's Preview Night events.
Every attendee of Comic-Con revcieves a complimentary gift bag, which they can use to fill with posters, pins, and other freebies that will be given out on the show floor. We snagged a bag when we picked up our attendee badges, which you can check out below. We'll probaby be giving away our Comic-Con swag to in a contest after the event, so keep tabs on our official Twitter and Comic-Con landing page for updates.
