Opinion: What the future of sports games should look like
What is realism?
As the next generation of consoles looms, this question is getting more and more difficult to clearly answer, especially when it comes to sports video games. Recreating the look and feel of events that unfold and repeat themselves hundreds or thousands of times every season in front of massive audiences has always demanded the most exacting attention to detail possible. After all, EA Sports slogan is “If it’s in the game, it’s in the game.”
In the 1980s, it meant (and I’m going to focus on basketball because that’s what I mostly write about) James Worthy wearing goggles or Tom Chambers performing his unblockable Double Pump Dunk of Doom in Lakers vs. Celtics and the NBA Playoffs.

This piece is awesome and I want all of this.

Sometimes games get weird.

Went back and finished Assassin’s Creed 2 (I know, 8 years later) tonight and the ending was….well, the main character summed it up best for me: What. The. Fuck? The premise of the game is pretty out there, so admittedly, I should’ve been on my toes I guess, but wow. Not the weirdest I’ve ever seen, nothing will top Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty’s ending. I mean, that was like a freaking acid trip. But, man, that was bizarre. Anyone else played it? Thoughts?

Here’s hoping it doesn’t take too long until I can see this in real life

E3 week!!

Tomorrow kicks off E3 2k11, and since I’m a huge nerd that loves video games way too much, I’m gonna have several posts about the big press conferences. Kind of like the ones I did last year. If these types of things bore you, I’d advise unfollowing for the week. I’ll miss you, but I’d understand. That being said, here’s some of the stuff I’m looking forward to and expecting to hear about.

So instead of Avengers…

I’m sure it will be cool and all, and Lord knows with what, 6 movies leading up to it, they’ve certainly built up a large base, but could we hit pause on that and get Whedon to do an Astonishing X-Men movie (or trilogy)? Sure he’s already started production on Avengers, but he wrote Astonishing and it’s phenomenal!

I got it awhile ago right before I moved and packed it before reading it. Sadly it took until now to remember I had it and find it. I just got through the collection and man, it was awesome. So, so, so awesome. Great story, beautiful art, and phenomenal dialogue throughout. X-Men was always my favorite of the many superhero options growing up, mainly thanks to the cartoon from back in the day. The movies, outside of the 2nd one, were a huge disappointment. I’d love to see someone else make a run at them. I have high hopes for First Class, but if we are gonna go with random offshoots, someone please take a run at Astonishing.

Eddie Mac’s Jeopardy! Adventure

1st off, thanks for all the well wishes kids, you all are awesome, awesome people that I’d love to meet in person and high five. For those of you just joining this shindig, I flew to Orlando last night for a 9 AM audition for Jeopardy! I got invited based on my performance on the online test a few months ago. Since this will definitely be in the tl;dr category, follow along if you’d like after the jump to hear about my intro to Jeopardy.

Bannnnnnnnned in the USA

So when the whole Gawker hack went down, mine was one of the many that got hacked, le sad. No big deal, I changed some passwords, thought all was fine. I tried to log in today with my new password on Kotaku, and was told my new password didn’t work. Strange, but i figured a quick password reset would fix it. Upon doing so they auto changed my login name and I’ve now been banned. This would’ve been devastating back a few years ago when Deadspin was readable, but I still enjoy Kotaku and Gizmodo. I’m not quite sure if I did something to get banned, was collateral damage from the hack or what…It seems far more fun to assume I’m some kind of evil rebel that needed to be controlled right?

herochan: Make way for Iron Brontosaurus, Captain Ameritops, Hulkasaurus Rex and AnkyloTHORusin this prehistoric “Dinosaurs meet Marvel Comics” mash up.
Marvel Dinosaurs - by d.r3sto

thank you, allandonly!

This is phenomenal. Could throw in a Cyclopsosorous that’s like a Dilophosorous w/ laser beams instead of poison. Or a VeLoganRaptor for the easy Raptor to Wolverine combo. I would love seeing more of these.
