I have no idea how DC Universe Online plays, but I do know this: You have to see this new cinematic from the game (remember how awesome the first one was? This one isn’t as amazing, but it’s pretty fucking good). I don’t know how this cinematic works into anything, since the game was released last month; where did this come from? Why is it being released now, and what for? But I do know you will freak out once you realize who the dude at the monitor is. Just watch it, seriously. And infinite thanks to Molly T. for the tip.
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.
