? Suda51, the madman behind No More Heroes and Killer 7, has a new game coming out called Codename D. It’s going to be for Microsoft’s Kinect nonsense.In case you were worried that the game would make any sense whatsoever, watch the teaser above — I think you’ll be pleased.
? Capcom announced the newest character in MVC3 — Wolverine’s jailbait clone-daughter X-23. She’s not that cool, actually. And with every passing roster announcement, my hopes that Dr. Druid will finally make the cut get grimmer grimmer.
? Despite the fact I have no intention of playing FFXIV, I still feel compelled to cover it — especially the opening video to the game, where some dude picks up a card and has the DTs or something. It’s gorgeous, though. Square Enix can still make a damn fine CG movie. Too bad they can no longer make good games. OH, SNAP!
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.
