Brooklyn Brewery Defend Beer Event! NYCC Super Week 2014



New York Comic Con is almost upon us. Just like they have in years past Brooklyn Brewery is once again teaming up with ReedPOP, the world’s largest producer of pop culture events to create a beer for New York Super Week, the week leading up to the convention. Amy Reeder of Rocket Girl and Madame Xanadu fame has been recruited to redesign the beer’s label and the female hero featured on it, Brooklyn Defender. Brooklyn Defender is the first female to go with a New York Comic Con beer, and she does, in fact, look like she’s ready to defend beer.

OtakusandGeeks was front and center during the release party of the new beer on September 10, 2014. Brooklyn Defender will serve as the official beer not just for NYCC, but for the larger New York Super Week that has sprung up this year to involve more of the city in the festivities. Look for Brooklyn Defender during NYCC and New York Super Week, but remember to con responsibly.

In the meantime, enjoy the gallery below of OtakusandGeeks attending the release party at Brooklyn Brewery.

First Thoughts: Halo 4 Multiplayer at NYCC

Earlier in the week we got our hands on the Halo 4 Multiplayer at New York ComicCon. All 4 days the lines were more than an hour wait until the last second, And it was truly worth the wait! The game feels polished and puts armor abilities to much better use than reach. Great load out selection and it is balanced so it still feels like a halo game while offering a good selection that fits most any play style. The controls are responsive and every thing feels right. For me the best experience was playing on the halo 3 map Valhalla its a great example how the game differs from previous halo games. With new weapons, armor abilities and the new vehicle the mantis you really get to see how every thing ties together. In all it is a more tactical game compared to previous games nothing feels to over powered, and everyone has a chance. Over all a great demo and cant wait to pick it up next month.
