I was going to post the leaked GTA4 intro trailer, but it disappeared before I could even embed the damn thing. So second place winners get the trailer for Square Enix’s Nintendo DS game The World Ends With You, which?despite coming from Square Enix?is not a Final Fantasy or Kingdom Hearts game. Crazy, right? The game supposedly has you fighting on both screens at once, and as you can see in the video, the battles can get a little…uh…let’s just say busy. Still, I think it’s worth picking up just to reward ol’ Squeenix for remembering they’re allowed to release an original concept once in a while.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
