With all the hubbub about Skyrim, Saints Row the Third, Assassin’s Creed Revelations, and Skyward Sword, I’d totally forgotten about Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. That is, until this new video from the game came out, which is so unbelievably awesome I’ve actually already watched it twice and plan on watching it at least one more time. You’ll need three viewings to truly comprehend all the awesomeness going on here, even if no one is moving a muscle — just watch, you’ll see what I mean. Now if you’ll excuse me, I seriously need to watch it again. (Via Agent M Loves Tacos)
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.
