Hey guys, Wax here on site in Atlanta for Dragon*Con 2013. This con has been absolutely INSANE for cosplay, with some of the best I’ve seen in my 10+ years of con going. Our friends over at Caroline Cosplays have been on the floor with us every day taking photos and talking to everyone about what they are excited about. Lots of hype for Attack on Titan and the Final Fantasy X HD remasters is buzzing around. I’m going to go jump back on the floor, but I’ll be back with more galleries from Caroline Cosplays when we get back from the con floor. Here are a few samples from her full Day 1 Dragon*Con 2013 Gallery.

Most Dragon Ball Z fans are aware that there is a new movie coming out. Most Dragon Ball Z fans are aware that there is a powerful, feral Pharaoh feline super villain with super powers rivaling the Gods. Have you stopped to think how Goku will defeat this monstrosity of pure evil? Goku reaches the ultimate Saiyan level—the legend of legends. A power that even Broly, the legendary Super Saiyan, cannot fathom. A power that the Supreme Kais cannot fathom. A power that I am having a hard time even imagining as I am writing this article. Goku transforms into Super Saiyan God Goku, the convergence of the legendary powers of the Saiyan race into a being with powers rivaling the Gods. He is a God.
Came across this Japanese horse racing game that I simply could not avoid putting online. Funny guys, Hightower and AxialMatt, take a look at a 100% accurate recreation of horse racing in Japan.
This has anime humor written all over it:
Killer Instinct is coming at you with a new group of characters to unlock – the lastest being Sadira. Sadira, according to sources, is the first female character to be released on this platform, and the first original character to this platform.
Expect eight characters to be released in total. Each can be purchased for $5, aside from Jago who will be free of charge, or you can swing the whole lot for $20. Six will be included upon the game’s release. The next tier (Ultra Edition) comes in at $40, and will give you all eight characters, an accessory pack or two, costumes, and an arcade version of the original Killer Instinct.
Almost makes me want to dig out my 64 bits of fun, and whip some tail.
