There’s a new clip for Funimation’s CG Dragon Age anime movie Dawn of the Seeker, and unlike previous clips and trailers, I think I could actually have watched this and guessed it was about Dragon Age, even without the audio track. I think it’s the ogre horns; DA‘s dragons are pretty generic, but its ogres have a very distinct horn pattern that are pretty recognizable to anyone who’s played the game (even just the first game, like myself). Now, whether the anime will have more association with Dragon Age than just ogre horns remains to be seen, but I am feeling slightly more optimistic now. (Via Anime News Network)
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.
