I’ve talked a lot about how I feel the WiiU doesn’t seem to have a killer app, a game that almost singlehandedly justifies buying the console (with the possible exception of The Wonderful 101). Meanwhile, the more I see of the 3DS’ Adventure Time game, Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?!!, the more I’m seriously considering finally picking up a 3DS. Just for this. I don’t want any other games. I don’t even want the 3DS’ second screen or the 3-D, frankly. I just want to play Adventure Time. Seriously, Nintendo, you bring an Adventure Time game to the WiiU… we’ll talk. (Via Destructoid)
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.
