For some reason a few people have apparently gone insane that I didn’t lavish everything Nintendo announced at their E3 presser with love yesterday (and I thought you were going to be so proud of me for being excited about GoldenEye, too). So here are three games (two after the jump; these trifectas are getting unwieldy) that I unequivocally love.
? Would you like to see Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 in action? Let me answer that for you: Yes, you would. If you were at all worried the game would be less frantic or insane with 3-D models, you needn’t be. Also, the video is worthwhile just to hear Deadpool yell “Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!” while doing his special moves.
More after the jump.
? Feel free to bitch at me for still not watching Clone Wars, but god help me if I won’t be picking up the Lego Clone Wars game. The two original Lego Star Wars games were just so damn fun I would buy the Lego Star Wars Holiday Special if Travelers Tales made it. It’s a little weird seeing big-eyed Lego guys, but I can deal.
? If you are not delighted by the above trailer for Portal 2, you clearly have something wrong with you and should seek a doctor immediately.
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.
