Sorry if I hit the gaming news a little hard today, but I still felt compelled to post this video so that anyone who hadn’t yet seen the new BSG series could enjoy College Humor’s classic RPG-style summary of the series instead. It pretty much covers everything you need to know about all four seasons of the sci-fi SyFy series, so if you watch it you can save yourself a lot of time. Meanwhile, I’ll be here, wishing more strategy/resource management-type games had a prostitute meter. (Via Blastr)
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.
