? A very odd-looking Nightwing (and his motorcycle) get added to the fray, Wonder Woman picks up a few Amazonian guards, and Harley Quinn has a mine pie that is ridiculous even in a game where Catwoman can throw Superman into the floor with her whip. Still looks fun, though.
? Here’s a new trailer for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. There’s not a single second in here that makes me even vaguely interested in the game, let alone want to play it. I’ve already forgotten what’s in it. Was there an elf or something?
? And last but not least, here’s a new trailer for Professor Layton Vs. Ace Attorney. Unlike FFXIV, every single second of this trailer interests me. Witches? Labyrinths? Puzzles? Witch trials? I have no idea what’s going on, and I’ve never played a minute of any Layton or Phoenix Wright game, but I think this this looks really cool. My point, of course, is that FFXIV doesn’t. I just wanted to make that abundantly clear. Thanks to SlyDante for the tip!
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.
