They copied the general theme of Epic Rap Battles of History, so it loses points with me there. Then it splices in footage of random gamers and it doesn’t match up. And they’ve picked some uninteresting units to start. But it’s still Starcraft units rapping, so I’ll let it slide.

I loved Plants vs Zombies. Popcap has fulfilled my need to play Plants vs Zombies at work and given us all Plants vs Zombies Adventures. They’ve added a persistent world home base, a progressive map, and a couple new plants and zombies to do battle with. It’s just as fun and almost as addictive. But, still, it’s a Facebook game.

The Xbox One will definitely have games. There’s that Call of Duty, and Watchdogs, and a new racing game, and more EA Sports games. All those games you already knew for certain were coming to the system are definitely coming to the system. And some other games, probably, but they didn’t really discuss them. There are exclusives happening. Eventually.
But don’t worry about that. More important than what video games your video game system (which I guess we’re not supposed to call a video game system anymore?) will be able to play is what it will allow you to watch. You’ll be able to watch movies! And TV! You’ll be able to Skype. And surf the web. And because switching between these different options has always been such a ridiculous chore in the past, now you’ll be able to do it with your voice. Thanks to the new, integrated and unattachable Kinect (awesome) It will recognize your voice, and turn on when you ask it. And it will switch between tv and games super fast. Like, super duper fast. I can’t exaggerate how important they wanted us to believe the ability to change between these options really, really quick is. It’s so important.
Also, there’s a new controller. Things have changed. What are those things? I dunno, they didn’t really discuss it.
Finally, you’ll be able to install games to your hard drive and play without the disc. Which is awesome. But also means you could buy the game, install it, and sell it back to GameStop that day. Meaning that they’re going to charge you a fee if you’re not the first person who tries to install a game, because otherwise they would only sell one copy of a game, ever. This pretty much ruins the used games market for the Xbox One. Which I’m sure is a side effect, and not the intended target. *wink* Guess EA knew what they were doing when they did away with online pass after all.
Oh, and no release date or price. Obviously. Kind of a massive disappointment all around.
You really shouldn’t battle your house pets. They are like part of the family. Well, I guess this is incidentally a parallel to Pokemon, why would you fight with something you’ve spent hours training and raising? Same thing applies here. Unless it’s a pet rock. What a dumb pet.
For an incredibly popular game with a crazy twist at the end (well, a “crazy twist, at least. Well… a “crazy” “twist” at least) the internet’s been pretty good at not making huge jokes out of all the Bioshock Infinite spoilers and ruining it for everyone. So, as a thank you for your restraint, here’s a video that is literally nothing but jokes about Bioshock Infinite spoilers. It’s pretty good.
Oh, also, it might have a couple of Bioshock Infinite spoilers. Watch out.
Yup, internet’s over. We didn’t realize it, but there were victory conditions built into the internet, and one of them was “Man at Arms Builds a Buster Sword.” So that happened. There’s really no reason to continue. All we can do is tear it all down and restart at a harder difficulty level. Personally, I’m not looking forward to it. Beating RealPlayer was hard enough on easy. I don’t even want to imagine what it’s like on Warlord.
Yeah, that’s how curious I am about playing the franchise owner mode of the latest Madden game. I don’t know if it will be any good, but it’s definitely something I’m curious about trying. Could I get the Oakland Raiders successful again? Will someone ever care about the Jacksonville Jaguars. Can move a team to Las Vegas and rebrand them? Here’s hoping I call the Walk of Shames.
They call it Crowdfarter. Because that’s how I feel about a crowd-funding. It’s all farts. I cringe a little when one of my friends posts another Kickstarter or similar campaign. Well at least Game & Wario isn’t asking for money, and really good they aren’t asking for farts. They just want tweets and likes and they give you stuff.
Check out Crowdfater for yourself.
It’s a blurry shape! Holy shit, forget about that giant XBOX show tomorrow, Sony gave me a blurry shape! No, no one gives a shit. You actually show the box today, or, even better, announce the release date and/or price, we might care about your PS4 announcement. But this is just ridiculous. “We teased the general shape of PS4 console! That’ll get them talking!” Sure it will, Sony. Sure it will.
This weekend Kevin Conroy confirmed he is in Arkham Origins. Which, great, right? That’s the only real choice for Batman. Except he never actually said he was Batman. But why should he have to? He’s Batman.
Except maybe not? Because it turns out this Roger Craig Smith fellow is Batman. Who? He played Ezio Auditore, so I guess he has experience in playing guys that go on quests of vengeance after their families are murdered. But he’s still not Kevin Conroy, so why’s he playing Batman? And who’s Kevin Conroy playing, if not Batman? It’s gotta be Batman. Probably an older Batman. Possibly with travel time travel? Or maybe just flashbacks? Probably just flashbacks.
But now that I think about it, I’m rooting for time travel. Cause… CO-OP Batmans! Old Batman comes back in time, now you’ve got old Batman and young Batman fighting side by side. Deathstroke doesn’t even stand a chance! Come on time travel!
Note: I didn’t mean to put two Arkham Origins posts right next to each other, but, well, the trailer came along and that happened. Sorry.
