Mega64 made an Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim fan flick that’s… well, let’s just call it “accurate.” At least by what I’ve heard. Because I still haven’t played it. Because no one got me Skyrim for Christmas. Got some socks, though. I’m really glad I got socks instead of Skyrim. I needed those socks for sure. In fact, I don’t know why I had Skyrim on my Amazon wishlist instead of socks. How foolish of me. Boy, I really lucked out this Christmas. Yep. (Via Geeks are Sexy)
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.
