There’s Going to Be a Diablo III Cartoon Short, and — Oh, Wait, Here It Is
There’s a Diablo III animated short directed by Aeon Flux creator Peter Chung and animated by Titmouse, the studio behind Metalocalypse? It seems like I should have heard about this thing maybe a tiny bit before it came out, not 10 minutes afterwards. I mean, the one thing I do know about Diablo is that it’s pretty popular, and any animated short based on the world — especially with that staff — should probably have popped up on my radar before I was actually able to post it. Obviously, between me and my readers who are supposed to send me tips about these things, one of us isn’t doing our jobs. I’m not going to point fingers, but maybe some of you should take a look at yourselves in the mirror today. (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.
