I was having a hard time figuring out which of these three videogame preview videos i wanted to run, and then I remembered I’m on the internet. The only rule is there are no rules (which is another line from Dragonball: Evolution which is said repeatedly without ever having any relevance to anything).
? I’m not sure how Terminator is going to play, but man, those are some great looking environments. If Terminator Salvation ends up being a good movie and a good movie game, consider my mind officially blown.
? If you liked last week’s Bioshock 2 debut trailer, here’s the pop-up video version, which confirms that the game is a sequel set 10 years after the original, and you will have a Little Sister to protect at least some of the time, and other facts (like you can combine plasmid attacks!). Man, I’m looking forward to this game.
? And last but not least, here’s one of the Ghostbusters game designers doing a walk-through of a small part of one of the levels and a boss fight, complete with trap. Honestly, it might look like the least accomplished game of the three, but it’s Ghostbusters, and thus I love it the best.
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.
