LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, The Last Of Us & More Join The MCM London Comic Con Games Stage Line-Up; UK Pianist, Mark Fowler, To Close The Show
Written Thursday, May 16, 2013 By Dan WebbView author's profile
We already announced part of our MCM London Comic Con line-up last week, you know, Splinter Cell Blacklist, Mark Meer and Camilla Luddington, but today we have another treat for you: more announcements!
That's more games, more unique and cool ideas, and one hell of an awesome way to end the show: a video game music set from the very talented UK pianist, Mark Fowler (a video of whose I have embedded below).
As I mentioned the other day, this will all be live streamed to you in your homes if you can't make it, and if for any reason the internet capabilities at the Excel implodes like they did last year, we'll have HD versions on the site for your viewing pleasure at the end of each day. It's sure to be a bit of an awesome experience, so if you have time, do come down.
Here comes the info!
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, The Last Of Us & More Join The MCM London Comic Con Games Stage; UK Pianist, Mark Fowler, To Close The Show
More games and attractions added to the London Comic Con Games Stage.
Xbox360Achievements.org (X360A) and PS3Trophies.org (PS3T) today announced the addition of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, The Last Of Us and GRID 2 to their stellar line-up for the MCM London Comic Con Games Stage, joining the likes of Splinter Cell Blacklist, Mass Effect’s Mark Meer and Tomb Raider’s Camilla Luddington.
TT Games’ Phil Ring will be on hand and hitting the stage on the Sunday to show off the latest LEGO game, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, one that is sure to resonate with the London Comic Con audience.
Sony and Naughty Dog’s hugely anticipated new IP, The Last Of Us, will take centre-stage on the Saturday lunchtime, with members of Naughty Dog in the UK to show off the game and take questions from the audience.
Meanwhile, GRID 2 will race its way onto the Games Stage with X360A and PS3T running the Checkpoint Challenge, offering onlookers a chance to get hands-on with the game before launch and win a copy of the game if they’re lucky.
Explosive Alan and former SentUAMessage host, Dan ‘MrPointyHead’ Maher, also joins the impressive line-up with a tribute to Dr Bennett Foddy, the creator of some of the most fiendishly difficult video games in the existence of man. The interactive gaming special will challenge onlookers to participate in these hilariously tricky flash games, with a lucky few getting the chance to take some wonderfully terrible SWAG home with them.
To close the show on the Sunday evening, UK pianist, Mark Fowler, will be on stage to perform a set of classic video game music.
“It was important for us to add some diversity to the proceedings this time around,” said Dan Webb, Editor-in-Chief of X360A and PS3T. “Mark is a hugely talented pianist and as a big fan of video game music, getting him up on stage to close the Games Stage was a no brainer for me.”
Mark will play familiar arrangements from classic franchises such as Halo, Mass Effect, Elder Scrolls, Metal Gear, Zelda, Assassin’s Creed, Final Fantasy and more.
“We’re treating the Games Stage as more of a celebration of games this year, and getting the voice talent like Mark Meer and Camilla Luddington, as well as Mr Fowler on-stage was a testament to that,” noted Webb. “And what would a celebration be without prizes? We’ll have SWAG galore to giveaway to attendees from various publishers, and we’ll also be kick starting a 200,000 Microsoft Points giveaway in association with Ubisoft and Splinter Cell Blacklist on the sites when the shows kicks off too. It’s set to be very exciting. Don’t miss out.”
