Just wanted to take a moment to post our policy on harassment on tumblr, it is also on our website, and will be in the program guide. The image attached is the sign we will have displayed throughout the convention.
Emerald City Comicon’s mission is to create a safe, awesome environment where geeks of all kinds can come together. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment of any kind.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments (related to race, gender, sexual orientation, body size, disability, appearance, and religion), overly sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention.
Exhibitors, sponsors and guests are subject to our anti-harassment policy as well and have also been informed. In particular, exhibitors should not use images or material that surpasses a PG-13 rating at their booths. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use over-sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes.
If a person engages in harassing behavior, ECCC Directors and Department Heads may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from Emerald City Comicon (with no refund). If you are being harassed, witness someone else being harassed or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the Emerald City Comicon staff immediately (identifiable by green Minion t-shirts or black polos/Staff badges). We are happy to contact our security or local law enforcement, provide escort, a safe place, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the convention.
All attendees, exhibitors and staff are subject to this anti-harassment policy and are expected to follow these rules at all Emerald City Comicon events.

I must admit that this emotional climax fell a little flat for me. I get what they’re going for and it’s a great idea in theory, but it falls apart for me when I remember the main character is a five-year-old boy. It’s a bit much to ask him if he’ll love someone forever. Does he even understand what forever is?

Smash Bros. played A Link Between Worlds-style ⊟
Nintendo has posted the winners of its recent Art Academy Sketchpad x Zelda drawing Miiverse competition. The bottom entry took home the grand prize, but Zapp’s Silver Medal-winning entry was totally robbed. Via L~A!
Those are both pretty fascinating. I wish Nintendo would do more contest like this.Source: nintendo.co.jp

I first discovered Metal Gear while reading a G.I. Joe comic book. I didn’t have to play it or even read a gushing Nintendo Power sales pitch to be instantly smitten with the game — the ad alone did the trick. Metal Gear, after all, was published…
