Matt and Trey Parker hosting South Park: Stick of Truth panel!
Whoa. I do not remember San Diego Comic-Con being so packed with videogame panels when I went in 2012. There’s a crazy amount of panels happening this year, and a lot of it is dominated by Xbox One, Ubisoft, and of course, Capcom.
The Xbox One marketing hype is in full swing at SDCC, such as the special showing off Dead Rising 3. Plus I’m sure that Saints Row IV panel is going to be super sweet.
Of course, everything pales in comparison when you see that Matt Stone and Trey Parker are heading up a South Park: The Stick of Truth panel. Oh how I’d love to be in that room to see what insanity plays out here.
Here’s the schedule of all the notable game related stuff I saw on the list. Otherwise check out the San Diego Comic-Con website for the full list of panels.
