? Here is a play-through of the first 10 minutes of the Final Fantasy XIII demo. To use an applicable line from The Venture Bros, it’s like getting sucked off by an angel. There more videos at Joystiq, and thanks to Zach R for the tip.
? Sorry for the extra dose of Wolverine, but this “Gambit” video — which does indeed feature Gambit — also features a Sentinel. This was much more exciting to me before the FFXIII video.
? Bayonetta looks like a Devil May Cry-type game, where you’re a witch in improbable clothes who can turns into a jaguar in improbable clothes. Although Sega’s game only looks so-so and gthe story seems ludicrously silly and I’m historically, thoroughly awful at DMC, I’m afraid I’ll buy anyways it because I’m a sucker for girls in glasses.
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.
