Oh, thank god. I was afraid I was going to have to run yet another Dark Knight Rises leaked set video or something, but thankfully this new Batman: Arkham City game trailer came out, fulfilling my Bat-quota for the day. This time, it focuses on Mr. Freeze who… may be a side mission or a DLC mission or something? It looks like his stuff happens mainly in one warehouse, which is fine with me, since Arkham City proper is still full of the Joker, Two-Face, the Riddler, Catwoman, and god knows who else. Seriously, if Rocksteady keeps shoving in Bat-villains, we’re going to get the gritty new King Tut soon… and I can’t tell you how much I approve of that.
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.
