I can’t believe how many game journalists are tripping over themselves to post about the Arkham World “reveal” at the VGAs
Nightmare Mode, which is usually a blog I actually like reading, accidentally said it best when they said this:
We obviously can’t take this as a formal announcement, but considering that animators took the time to sneak it in there means something is going on.
That’s the assumption - the animators put it in there, so it has to be a clue, right? Yeah? Guys?
The answer: No, no, no. Stop filling your diapers over a fucking prop gag. I mean, game journalists think I don’t have a sense of humour, and then they go ahead and write shit like this. One site even suggested that the game might be an MMO because it has “World” in the title!
This is why nobody takes this industry seriously. This is why nobody takes you seriously.
Christ on a bike.
We’re going to shoot another episode of PortsCenter out of pocket
Should be fun. Challenging, but fun. Once again I’ll be asking friends to help out with production and equipment, as I did with the first pilot, but I’ve already bought the game in question and it should arrive in the next few days. Exciting!
If you haven’t done so already, watch the pilot, and if you like it please consider pledging a few bucks to help make the full season a reality. World of Warcraft and Batman: Arkham Asylum voice actor Dino Andrade has thrown his weight behind the project, agreeing to send signed pictures of his various characters to anyone who pledges $50 or higher. Thank you.
I don’t often ask this, but if you could please reblog this post (or otherwise help spread the word) that’d be just super-duper. Thanks to everyone who has supported this project so far.
A comment left on my Facebook wall by Dino Andrade, voice actor and founder of geek dating site SoulGeek.com (not to mention damned good friend), in response to Alyssa Bereznak’s utterly indefensible article about dating Magic: The Gathering world champion Jon Finkel.
(You’ve probably heard Dino’s voice and not even realized it, by the way - he was the Scarecrow in Batman: Arkham Asylum, a bunch of characters in Brutal Legend including Death and a bunch of headbangers, and he’s voiced a bunch of characters in World of Warcraft. He was also harassed by a puppet at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.)

Ben Paddon and Nick Simberg inexplicably find themselves in a parallel dimension where someone of worth has agreed to be interviewed for the show. Listen, perhaps in terror, as Ben and Nick talk with voice actor Dino Andrade (Batman: Arkham Asylum, World of Warcraft, Brütal Legend, amongst others) about pretending to be someone else for a living.

CVG: How can The Dark Knight Rises video game beat Arkham City? [October 31st, 2010]
This statement works for anything. Let’s try chancing some choice words:
With the right developer, a truly open-world Legally Blonde video game would not only set itself apart from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney but could seriously compete with it as well… Couldn’t it?
Aside: I don’t know about you, but the fact that The Dark Knight was cancelled was no skin off my nose and didn’t cause me any loss of sleep at night, especially since the last decent Batman game before Arkham Asylum rolled out was Batman: The Movie for the Amiga 500.

Jordan Devore there, continuing to say incredibly stupid things.
Destructoid: Arkham City was in Batman: AA all along (well, kind of) [August 9th, 2010]
Wow, that sounds like every other secret in Arkham Asylum. I mean yes, the secret room is a pretty awesome hidden easter egg, but… c’mon Jordan, you’re not even trying.
