Looks like Legend of Zelda: The Skyward Sword has a new trailer for SDCC. I was all set to bitch about the green hoodie-less Link, his disturbingly pretty eyes and the plethora of birds, but then Zelda got swallowed by something and the trailer turned into a regular Legend of Zelda game. Looks pretty fun, but I wonder if I can get over the emotional scars left by the first few hours of Twilight Princess and goat herding. It remains to be seen, I guess.
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.
