FTL: Faster Than Light

Hello everyone, just wanted to make a quick post saying that I’ve started a video series on the hit indie game FTL: Faster Than Light.

 

Let me know what you think, and if you’re interested, part two continues here.

Darth Batman?

What do you get when you cross Batman, Sith, and Shark Week?

Answer:

I found this over at NerdCore.  I don’t think it’s actually FOR anything, but it’s pretty much a condensation of everything awesome into one picture.  Thought I’d throw it up to share with everyone.

Not really comic related, but it made me laugh, originally posted at Dogatar.

Child’s Play

A quick update about the charity Child’s Play, run by Jerry and Mike out of Penny-Arcade.  We’re coming down to the final week of the Child’s Play charity, and it would be great if you could make a donation.  That is to say, if you haven’t already.  Child’s Play is a fantastic charity that donates toys, movies, books, video games, and consoles to children’s hospitals around the globe.

Some items of interest this week include part 3 of the Deadpool/Thunderbolts crossover Magnum Opus.   Several DC miniserieses ending this week.  New Avengers: Reunion is out again this week, but frankly I disliked the first so much I probably won’t even look at it.  Otherwise it looks like a slow week for the big 2, they’ve already gotten their big titles out recently, so we’ll have to wait for next week,

Who’s a Winner in Nickelodeon’s Kid’s Choice Comic Awards

Nickelodeon’s has started their own comic awards bit.  The Nickaloedeon Magazine Comic Awards.  The twist in this one?  The awards were all chosen by polling kids.  The catagories were pretty standard, with the exception of “best hair in comics,” and the “grossest thing in comics.”  Something called a Diary of a Wimpy Kid showed up twice, including “best graphic novel” so maybe it’s looking into.  Best hair obviously went to Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes.  The Simpsons Comic was voted best comic series, and Snoopy was voted the cutest comic character.  It’s good to see that some classics are still getting recognition among kids.  Otherwise it was pretty uninspiring, with a bit of statistical inaccuracy mixed in.  Some catagories were only availiable for voting via online and cell phone ballots, so the same pool of children did not vote on all the awards.  Nothing majorly wrong with this, per se, but as a math and science person, this is the kind of stuff I notice.
