Roundup of Unusual Size: We have rights on the internets of all places?

If only 90% of my media weren’t on external drives; I could have better header images than incessant Anders fanart and My Little Pony macros.

Oh well. Kittens are always a nice fallback.

But hey! While I have you all here, I have a special announcement to make. I’m now part of the Critical Distance family! And I don’t mean I stole half of it from Ben Abraham in the divorce. I’ll be filling in for Ben this coming Sunday, so keep an eye out for that byline! I promise not to have too many repeats. (A low possibility anyway, as Ben and Eric’s feeds outstrip mine considerably.)

That’s enough of an update. Click onward; adventure awaits!



I’ve tired of posting Brian Ashcraft’s horndog slavering, but I make exceptions for incredibly awesome cosplay of Gray Fox/Cyborg Ninja.


Joystick Division;

Here’s a top 10 list of critically acclaimed commercial flops. Full of no-brainers, but a great tribute nonetheless.

Ars Technica;

You won’t believe your eyes! The incredible shrinking game: the truth of game length in the modern industry.


This is a pretty pointless article, except it has Ian Bogost et al trolling in the comments. Cheers!

Kris Ligman’s Dragon Age II Corner

Gamer Melodico;

Dan Apczynski just can’t take it anymore, Templars of Kirkwall: It’s Not a Friggin’ Walking Stick.

Grey Wardens;

Amelia Overbay-Day has a look at the changing nature of the templars and the Chantry, contrasting the text with their representation in Dragon Age II.



It feels like the early naughts all over again! Peter Jackson is recording a bunch of people dressed up as hobbits, and you can watch the behind-the-scenes.

Is it really “viral” video anymore if it’s so damn obvious? Anyway, here’s a video for J.J. Abrams’ Super 8.

Roger Ebert;

I actually love Ebert’s writing when he’s not trying to arbitrarily define art for everyone. And as the sibling/victim of an Objectivist, I was quite eager to see his review of the new Atlas Shrugged. (Spoiler: Yes, BioShock is still better. But you knew that.)


Ars Technica;

A legal opinion filed by top European lawyers today calls into question court-ordered filtering of websites, claiming it to be in a violation of man’s “fundamental rights.” Say, can we get some of that over here?
