News Filter: Transistor Announced

  • The game is Transistor. It looks like a follow up to Bastion without just being a sequel. We don't know a lot yet, but there is already a lot to look forward to.

News Filter: Saints Row IV Announced

  • Saints Row The Third was in every way the game of the year in 2011. It had all the gameplay I wanted out of a Grand Theft Auto game, but with a tremendous sense of humor and style. So when THQ rolled over and died, I was worried that we wouldn't see another game in the series. I am happy to report that my fears were unjustified.
  • Even if Saints Row IV is just more Saints Row, that should still be a very good thing. August 23, 2013, should be a very good day.

Random Shots: Digital Phantoms

  • Food for thought:
  • I'm a huge fan of online media services like Amazon and Steam. But it's all pixie dust and dreams. I am increasingly coming to radical conclusions about the movies, music, and games that we think we own, but that's a discussion for another day.

News Filter: Veronica Mars Movie Kickstarter

  • If I were to make a Top Five post for favorite television shows (and maybe I should), it would absolutely include Veronica Mars. It was the perfect blend of comedy and drama that make me insanely jealous that I can't write myself. When it was cancelled after three seasons, I was heartbroken. I miss Veronica and her friends quite a bit.

  • So when Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell launched a Kickstarter this morning to get a Veronica Mars movie made, I was overjoyed. This movie has to get made because I have to see it. All the rest of you getting to watch would just be a bonus.

  • My current dilemma: just how much will my wife let me donate?
