? It’s another lengthy cinematic video from Bioware’s upcoming Star Wars MMORPG, and while it’s not as awesome as last year’s vid, it’s still pretty damn awesome. I would like to repeat again my desire for Bioware to stop bothering with The Old Republic game and just make Star Wars CG videos all the time. I would seriously be fine with that.
? So Gotham City Imposters appears to be the multiplayer FPS game where everyone dresses like a member of the Bat-family or a Joker goon, grabs a gun, and then spending the afternoon murdering people. Does this strikes anyone else as weird? Like, gunning down Joker wanna-be’s seems really inappropriate, although I think Batman himself would be equally displeased with both sides since they’re, you know, murdering each other with guns. I’m not opposed to a Batman online game, I just don’t know if this is it.
? There’s a new trailer for short , which is short but pretty damned insane. It’s hard to top last year’s 10-minute trailer, and this doesn’t, but it is a good reminder that I want the shit out of this game.
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.
