So Diablo III had a new TV ad this weekend, and everyone was very excited about it. It’s got fire and demons and things exploding and what is possibly an angelic being with a bigass sword, and then a girl with short hair screaming about how there’s fire and demons and things exploding and whatnot. In related news, I finally finished all the Dragon Age: Origins DLC a couple weeks ago, so I look forward to playing Diablo III in about three years or so. (Via Kotaku)
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.
