He's right 2 hours is nothing. I've had to drive as much as 12 hours before.

Capcom kicks ass.

Comic-Con kicks ass.

This thread kicks ass.

PS - Plunder will be an cult-classic IMO.

I'm hoping it finally ties up the loose ends with Spencer, or at least introduces him.

I want to try and make it but man SD is hella far from Santa Monica.
Really? 2 hour drive is really nothing. Especially for something as fun as this. Hopefully something from the Ace Attorney series comes up.

Okay, do we know yet if 'Flock!' is the games name or if it's a code-name? I'm desperately hoping for Dead Rising 2, but the fact the listing isn't 'a yet to be revealed project' or 'Project Flock' or something like that doesn't give me a lot of hope.

Do yourself a favor, and take the Metro bus 720 or 920 from Santa Monica just about anywhere on Wilshire Blvd to a Metrorail Red line station on Wilshire/Western, then take the rail east to Union Station, then take Amtrak to San Diego. Amtrak is the best way to go from LA to SD on Comic-con weekend.

When you get to SD Amtrak station, you can take their L train right to the SD convention center. Very convenient and quick.

IIRC, the trip should cost you under $50 one way. Slightly more than driving, but trust me, you don't want to be stuck in that 405 gridlock during Comic-con weekend.


edit: The Amtrak service from LA to SD is called Pacific Surfliner, and if you book it online at least a few days in advance, it's only $35 each way! I think it might be cheaper than driving account for being stuck in traffic jam!

The Union Station in LA downtown is coded "LAX" and the San Diego station near convention center is coded "SAN" at Amtrak's site. Please please PLEASE take this instead of driving guys. Seriously. That drive sucks that weekend.

Good luck for everyone trying to go, I suggest going Thursday or Sunday as they are the least busy days...

Friday and Saturday are already sold out.

If anyone is interested I'll be running an open gaming room in Mezzanine level 17B and will have all kinds of fighting games being played there.

Also some exclusive playables such as BlazBlue and a few more...

Last year my GF and I had no idea tickets could sell out because I have never run into that problem before at Con. We ended up spending 30 minutes asking people on the street if they wanted to sell their badges. We got lucky, running into a couple who were leaving early and gave them to us for half price.

This year, you can only buy tickets online.
