  1. The Mary Sue Presents NYCC’s Anti-Harrassment Policy (And We Helped!)

    Warriors for great justice

    We were pretty jazzed when ReedPOP reached out to us for help drafting their New York Comic Con 2014 anti-harassment policy. The need for every con to have such a policy, prominently placed so people actually see it, is something we feel pretty strongly about, after all. We assembled a crack team of experts, and after several long e-mail chains and one marathon chat session, voilà: NYCC's 2014 anti-harassment policy was born.

  2. ReedPOP Plans To Make New York Comic Con a 10-Day Affair With “NY Super Week”

    "One Week To Rule Them All" Indeed.

    At SDCC, local business vendors all over the city end up capitalizing on the nerd craze. In New York, though, the farther away you get from the Javits Center, the more confusing your cosplay looks to outsiders. That might change this year with "Super Week," which "brings the entire universe of popular culture to every corner of all five boroughs."

  3. Watch Trevor From GTAV Scream “Go F*** Yourself!” At A Fan During NYCC [VIDEO]

    He did not end up with this guy's brain on his boot, thankfully.

    A few days ago, we told you guys about the 5 very best lessons from the Grand Theft Auto V panel at New York Comic Con. As a reminder, our Number 4 Lesson was "It Is Terrifying When Trevor Screams In Your Face." Internet gods be praised, the fan who asked the initial question caught the whole thing on camera, and uploaded it to YouTube!

  5. 5 Things We Learned at the NYCC GTAV Panel

    No, none of them are "How to effectively hotwire a car in under 20 seconds," sadly.

    Yesterday, Geekosystem was able to hit IGN's GTAV panel at New York Comic Con, and it was probably the raddest thing of all time. Hosted by IGN's Greg Miller, GTAV actors Ned Luke (Michael), Steven Ogg (Trevor), and Shawn "Solo" Fonteno (Franklin) took the stage, and the gamers went wild. Here's what we learned (see, GTAV can be educational!)

    New York Comic Con is in full swing, and the Geekosystem team has been there checking it all out! It was hard to narrow it down to our very favorite things from the Thursday and Friday of NYCC, so we thought we'd just show you the awesomest people we've found on the show floor so far.

  8. Can’t Make It To NYCC? You Can Watch The LiveStream Right Here

    It's almost like being there but without having to deal with the crowds.

    New York Comic Con is basically minutes away from starting, and while some of us are still stuck at our desks right now while our senior editor gets to have all the fun (COUGH), we can all enjoy some of the weekend's festivities without the long trek to the Javits Center by checking out his awesome livestream.

  9. Random Encounter NYCC: Luke Crane, Inventor of the Burning Wheel and Mouse Guard RPGs

    Though New York Comic Con has come and gone, we here at Geekosystem were lucky enough to meet up with some amazing people at the massive celebration of all things geeky. Here's an account of some of the mysterious creatures that leapt out and attacked us along our epic quest. The only thing between Luke Crane and myself is a box set of his latest roleplaying game creation. He didn't know I was coming, and I didn't know I was going to see him, but it quickly becomes obvious that it didn't matter all that much to him. Crane, who is the creator of the Burning Wheel roleplaying system, is a fast thinker and a fast talker. There's nothing wasted about this man -- he's slim, with close cropped hair and a sharp mind. Which only makes sense, since Crane has spawned games that have cut to the very heart of roleplaying, and reworked it from the inside out in his games. For the uninitiated, Burning Wheel is a pencil and paper role playing game in the vein of Dungeons and Dragons. There are dice, there are sheets of paper, and the players say their intentions instead of moving pieces around a board. But Burning Wheel, while drawing from the traditions established by D&D, is very much its own game. To take a superficial difference, the iconic 20-sided dice of D&D will find no home on a Burning Wheel table. The game shirks such exotic things, and uses simple, ubiquitous six-sided dice instead. But as a game, there are deeper, subtler differences.
