You know, I was planning on writing some shit about how I love Dawn of the Dead, how Vegas is a great place for a zombie game (or movie), and how I don’t know why I haven’t played more of the first Deadrising. But none of that matters, because although the main character of Deadrising 2 looks like a douchebag, he: ? Wields a staff with chainsaws on the ends ? Puts on a moose head and goes charging though a crowd of zombies ? DUCT-TAPES TWO FUCKING CHAINSAWS TO A MOTORCYCLE AND STARTS DRIVING Awesomest game of all time. Done.
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.
