Thanks to the Video Game Music Choir, who also do an equally beautiful cover of Portal‘s “Still Alive” if you’re interested. I wonder if they take requests. I’d love some original Castlevania music done in this style. FYI, in the YouTube description for this video they say that long-time Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu wrote the SSBB theme. Is that true? Because if so, I’m going to need to lie back down for a while until my brain reassembles itself. (Via Kotaku)
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.
