There’s going to be an Evil Dead game for iPhone, and for reasons unknown, all the characters look like Miis from the Nintendo Wii. Seeing these giant-headed, kid-friendly character designs get covered in blood and attacked by demons is weird, but in a good way, I think. My only quibble is that I wish they had a scared face to switch to when, you know, they’re getting murdered and raped by trees (which may actually be a part of the game, if you look closely). No word when it’s coming out, but I’ll keep a watch out. (Via Geeks of Doom)
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.
