It’s all over, folks! This year’s New York Comic Con is officially over, and it was glorious. If you didn’t make it out to NYC’s Javits Center, no worries. I took some photos of the convention, all for your viewing pleasure. I took more shots of the different exhibits rather than the attendees, figuring that you’ve probably seen your share of cosplayers elsewhere.
Rumors flooded the Internet this week that a new kart game starring the cast of LittleBigPlanet was in the works. Today, Sony confirmed that news on the official PlayStation twitter account:
Update: We can confirm that LittleBigPlanet Karting is in fact in development and we look forward to sharing more on the game soon!
One of my earliest childhood memories was playing BurgerTime on my NES with my dad. Oh,.. sorry. That was the end of the story. You expected more? Hmm… well this is awkward.
MonkeyPaw is bringing a brand new BurgerTime to consoles with this week’s release of BurgerTime World Tour. The game continues the tradition of controlling chef Peter Pepper, who has to walk along scaffolding filled with the essential burger building components. While avoiding enemies like sausage links who are set on ending your life, chef Pepper must quickly build his burgers by walking over each burger ingredient, which subsequently fall below resulting in a perfectly crafted burger. It sounds confusing, and unsanitary, but it’s actually a shit load of fun.

Kevin Butler, the fake name of the fake SonyVP, is returning to his fake post. Earlier this month, Butler had tweeted that he was leaving his job working as the face of PlayStation to focus on a career in economy flooring. Seemed like natural job progression to me. As the above video shows, Butler’s duties are far from over.
There are more PlayStations to sell now that the console’s received a price cut, and with the fresh new slogan “Long Live Play”, there’s only one man for the job. Butler returns, and the world is now a better place.
