Manchester Cosplayer Comic Con sees more than 40,000 people attend
A rare jewel in a sea of conventions that feels less like a show, and more like a family reunion. I arrived at the conventions Thursday night, signed in and dropped off my stuff at the hotel and the convention center. We headed to a local sea food spot that Dean enjoys every time he attends the con, and — despite the rainy weather — we walked over and were seated very quickly.
We had a great conversation, and even though my comic credits were less than most at the table, what I love about this group is their inclusiveness. They wanted to hear my thoughts and opinions on things, even if and when I disagreed.

I got sucked into a tornado, so that was a pretty good sign. Just Cause 4 is theoretically about controlling Rico Rodriguez in his various vaguely South American freedom fights. In this game, as you perform more radical acts you actually inspire the people of this country to your movement, instead of just pissing off generals on military bases. You achieve your goals through expected open-world missions like activating towers and taking out enemy weaponry. But Just Cause 4 sets itself apart through the sheer ridiculousness of its action.
Take those two missions I just mentioned. It just wants you to mess around with its grand physics sandbox full of props, dynamic weather, and new ways to blow things up. The developers summoned a colorful tank out of the sky and strapped a bunch of balloons to it. Rico can then ride this flying tank and shoot shells at helicopters. This tank plan was like a parody of something that could happen in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain , especially when the tank and helicopter collided in mid air and went boom.
Along with balloons, players can also use their grappling hook to string items together or attach remote-activated booster rockets to just about anything. The developers turned a radio tower into a slingshot while I turned an old handcart into a rocket sled for me and my railgun.
