While the big, mega-entertainment panels at Comic-Con can be interesting, they too often are a barely disguised attempt to generate consumer awareness of upcoming entertainment products... you know, like commercials. Not so the smaller, more focused panels at the con. They tend to be less full of hype and OMG! moments, but can be a ton more interesting, if you're "into" the subject being discussed. I'm very, very into Fallout, and this year, Obsidian Entertainment got all in-depth about the opportunities and challenges that come with developing video games based on existing intellectual properties, specifically, what the writing process was like during the development of Fallout: New Vegas.
