? Turns out ol’ Agent 47 has more than three-piece suits in his closet. I normally wouldn’t post something as simple as a bonus outfits trailer, but Hitman: Absolution says you’ll use these disguises to hide in plain sight and help achieve your assassinations, so that’s fun. I really, really hope the squirrel suit is for when you have to go undercover in a furry convention.
? If you’d forgotten about Platinum Games’ free online brawler Anarchy Reigns, it’ll be out in North America on January 8th. Here’s a trailer.
? WARNING: If you are any kind of a Classics nerd, DO NOT WATCH this trailer for the 2-D platform game Apotheon without taking your pants off first, because otherwise IT WILL BLOW THEM RIGHT OFF YOU. I still can’t find my jeans; they may have actually disintegrated. Infinite thanks to SlyDante for the tips!
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.
