BioShock fans: Are you going to New York Comic Con 2011? Would you care to meet the folks behind BioShock Infinite? If so, we’ve got a treat for you!
On Saturday, October 15th, BioShock creator Ken Levine and BioShock Infinite actors Troy Baker (Booker DeWitt) and Courtnee Draper (Elizabeth) will be at New York Comic Con for a fan signing in the North Pavilion at Autographing Table 7 from 1:30pm to 2:30 pm. Feel free to bring your Irrational Games swag to get signed, but if you don’t have any items, fret not – we’ve got you covered! Everyone who lines up for the signing will receive a free BioShock Infinite lithograph for the crew to sign. Better yet, these lithographs will be your ticket when we raffle off 10 BioShock toy bundles from NECA collectables to those who come to the signing.
NECA BioShock Toy Bundle, including an Ultra Deluxe Big Daddy Bouncer with LED action figure, and an EVE Hypo Syringe.
If you’re not able to attend New York Comic Con but would still like to see the Irrational Games crew, we’ve got some good news: We’ll be holding a Meet and Greet event in New York after the show where you can stop by and relax with the Irrational gang. On Saturday, October 15, from 5pm to 7pm, IG.Sarah and IG.Eduardo will be heading to McGarry’s Pub (ages 21 and over) to meet with anyone who wants to stop by and say hello. To sweeten the deal, we’ll be bringing five of our limited Murder of Crows bottles from BioShock Infinite to raffle off during the event, and perhaps a few more surprises. All you have to do is come on down.

Ahhh this is pretty nifty! I’m considering on stopping into the pub. We don’t have to have attended comic-con to show up, do we?
ig.eduardo | October 3, 2011 4:45 pm
Nope! You just need to be a fan of Irrational Games ;).
mastigias | October 3, 2011 4:48 pm
I’m a fan of IG and a fan of BioShock, but I live in Hungary (:(
japester | October 3, 2011 6:12 pm
Looking forward to both the meeting and the greeting!
mrpudd | October 3, 2011 6:20 pm
I really want that Eve Hypo, . . . but I live in Ireland 🙁
katherine | October 3, 2011 7:00 pm
I echo Japester on this one 🙂
borrego | October 3, 2011 8:24 pm
Japes and Katherine, you lucky devils! Can’t wait till I move out east. This whole Utah thing is great and all, but I’m not too big on their scrapbooking expos.
vsharres | October 3, 2011 10:19 pm
Men..I was never more sad 🙁
I’am just 7000 km(or 4375 miles for you Americans) away…
jayakers | October 4, 2011 3:54 am
Sadly, this whole “living in Colorado” (used to be Oregon) thing doesn’t allow for it but it sounds like a great time 🙂
knightcarver | October 4, 2011 5:42 am
Sooo jealous of those who can get there. 😛
dannysal | October 4, 2011 7:38 am
Hey New Yorkers, I urge you all to try your best to attend the meet and great. I met some of the IG staff at Pax East and they are the best! Plus, you might get some really cool swag.
felonious | October 4, 2011 2:19 pm
100% correct, looking forward to meeting more people at IG ,more community members, and more rabid Bioshock fans!
losstarot | October 4, 2011 1:33 pm
Hmm do I smell new media or even footage? *fingers crossed*
japester | October 4, 2011 3:48 pm
I doubt they would debut new footage at the pub. Typically that is done at a big press event or during a panel.
devilturnip360 | October 5, 2011 4:34 pm
the big daddy doll is not really of interest but the syringe is another story.
tell me how to get one of those.
ig.eduardo | October 5, 2011 4:47 pm
You can get a syringe by showing up to the signing and participating in our raffle, OR you can get one of your own at the NECA website :).
I hope that helps!
icegrove | October 6, 2011 9:07 am
Want to come there too! But live to long away…
subject97 | October 7, 2011 7:03 pm
You should make it in the middle of where everyone lives,like Kansas
commodore23 | October 8, 2011 12:02 am
Sadly I live too far away to go, but it sounds amazing.
drak1686 | October 11, 2011 7:52 pm
Any chance that there is a demo open to public? 😛
billiamb | October 12, 2011 1:38 am
Is it wrong that I have tickets to NYCC and may skip out on the avengers panel to go for the meet and great ..
I can not wait for this game!
felonious | October 12, 2011 1:52 pm
No not at all!
ig.eduardo | October 12, 2011 1:54 pm
I completely understand your dilemma – either way, we hope to see you there! 🙂
japester | October 12, 2011 11:48 pm
Ha! Trust me, I understand. I’m a huge Avengers nerd. But look at the trade-off. Avengers will probably show you a few minutes of a movie that everyone will see before long. The meet and greet gives you the chance to win crazy swag like a Murder of Crows bottle.
theparasite | October 13, 2011 6:10 pm
Over 21? Man, I hate being 20. I would have loved to try and win one of those Crow bottles.
elysehfmaxwell | October 15, 2011 9:59 am
Jeez, I wish I could get there, but I’m in Westchester. Kenneth, spread the love!
I love BioSmock!
felonious | October 16, 2011 5:52 pm
The autograph signing and meet and greet was beyond awesome. Very glad it was something I could attend!
jdevil99 | October 17, 2011 9:28 pm
Same here, Ken and the gang were fantastic.
sueystuff | October 17, 2011 10:03 pm
was present. happy to have been there. yay!
japester | October 18, 2011 11:33 am
One of my favorite things was that everybody went away happy. We didn’t turn anyone away in the autograph line (even though plenty of people took a chance after the line was officially cut off) and I believe every single person won something at the meet & greet (not counting the game everyone got!).
The fact that the fans were so cooperative (for example, keeping the autograph line moving briskly) played a huge part in how successful it all was.

If only I had lived closer and was 21 🙁
