? Here’s a trailer for the Transformers Prime game on WiiU, which looks exactly like the cartoon, down to the completely flat, level surfaces all the fights take place on. Whether this is an incredible technical achievement or because you think Prime looks kind of crappy is up to you.
? Green Arrow joins Injustice. He doesn’t seem to be wearing the copious, over-designed body armor everybody else is wearing, but he does seem to have an axe blade attached to his bow, so at least he has that going for him.
? I know I say a lot of things are “the best thing ever,” but… Retro City Rampage may be the best thing ever. You get to ride on a rampaging faux Donkey Kong with turbo farts, for fuck’s sake. It also happens to only be out today on PC and PS3, so feel free to taunt me with its awesomeness until it finally comes to Xbox Live.
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.
