There’s a trailer for a new Spider-man video game out today called Web of Shadows, but it’s goofy and boring and shows no gameplay whatsoever, which is fine because I’d rather show this Lego batman clip instead:
Yes, it’s the same old Lego gameplay, but if you watch closely, you’ll see that the Riddler can beat a man with his cane so savagely that his little yellow head comes off. I don’t think it’s possible to love this game any more than I currently do.
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.
