Stephen Sharples is now famous for having been the “innocent victim” of IGN’s Greg Miller, the moderator of the LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham panel at New York Comic Con. The pretense of the panel was that Stephen Sharples had actually been the one who organized the presentation slides and video clips for the panel (he wasn’t). But, Greg Miller, whenever the call was made to provide the next clip, always yelled out, “Dang it, Sharples!” to play up the panel even more. At one point, he had the entire audience screaming, “Dang it, Sharples!” all at the same time. Here is a t-shirt to commemorate the event that was designed by Joe Moore, mild-mannered games designer for TT Games:

Stephen Sharples talked to ToonBarn’s Marc Morrell at New York Comic Con. The conversation includes a nostalgic look at 60’s Batman, whose level will make older gamers very happy and leave kids scratching their heads, while the kids will enjoy the expansive gameplay of more than 150 characters from the DC Universe, with movie-like animated cut scenes and tons of possible combinations.

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is available November 11, 2014, on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, PlayStation 4, PS3, PC, Vita, 3DS. Play responsibly.

Marc Morrell

I am a Big Fan of all types of animation. Like a lot of things, the cream always rises to the top. My favorites have included Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels, anything Pixar, Phineas and Ferb, Voltron Legendary Defender, and the DC/WB Animated Films. I have a lot of Old School favorites as well, such as Star Blazers, Voltron, Looney Toons, Tom & Jerry, and Scooby Doo.
