Because despite being directing by Charlie’s Angels auteur McG, the Terminator: Salvation trailer looked pretty good, and now this Terminator: Salvation videogame trailer (from the VGA) looks pretty damned good too. Now, it’s shot in annoy-o-vision, making it hard to tell much of what’s going on, but it looks like some nice burned-out LA environments, some Halo-esque vehicle combat, and more. I’m not sure I’m mentally prepared to live in a world where there’s going to be a good Terminator game and a good Ghostbusters game. Seriously, if someone made a good Evil Dead game too, I might just die on the spot out of bliss.
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.
