Saints Row the Third comes out today and I can’t afford it. I am sad. This has no bearing on this article, I just wanted to complain for a minute before running three silly Skyrim things.
? First up is a trailer for a retro Skyrim. I would play the living bejeezus out of this if it actually existed.
?? Apparently, Bil Keane wrote a few of the Elder Scrolls himself. Of course, he drew Jeffy misunderstanding a common idiom on it, but it still counts. (Via Unreality)
? And last but not least, here’s an song about how Dragonborn are born (i.e., hardcore dragon fucking). It might not be as epic as the Skyrim rap from last week, but it is incredibly, hilariously filthy, so there’s that. Thanks to Greg B. for the tip.
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.
