Even Assassins, Mutants & Alien Killers Love to Read

From a Reddit thread entitled “My girlfriend is a middle school librarian, she asked me to make some video game themed posters for the library” As a librarian myself, this is awesome and I would love to see more posters in this vein. I may be completely addicted to video games but I’m also completely addicted to reading. The only thing I’m not addicted to? Going outside. Can’t win ’em all!

Trailer Park: New Skyrim DLC! Though Maybe Not EXACTLY What You Were Expecting. **UPDATE I Told You So

Skyrim: Hearthfire –

I just read something describing this DLC as The Sims: Skyrim. Seems pretty apt to me. By the same token, this is exactly the type of game play that hooks me.  I can build my own stupid house and endlessly arrange trophies? Sign me up! However, the initial problem is going to be getting all of my loot from my house in Whiterun out to wherever I build my M.C. Escher nightmare of a domicile. I spent over 130 hours collecting every book, weapon, scrap of armor, piece of jewelry, alchemy component and malleable metal that I came across, all of which is in what are apparently Chests of Holding in my ramshackle Whiterun dump.  How am I going to get everything frome Point A to Point B in a timely manner? Just like in real life, moving is a bitch.

This may be a moot point for us PS3 owners though, as I still don’t have access to Dawnguard and it doesn’t look like I will anytime soon.

In relation to the Dawnguard expansion pack for the PS3 platform, Bethesda still has not decided to give any input on the developments behind this content. In reference to a fans’ concerns on Dawnguard for the PS3, Pete Hines stated that “we got it out on PC as fast as we could. We are equally as unhappy we can’t release current version on PS3.” It is to be presumed that Bethesda is still hard at work trying to resolve the issues they are having with Dawnguard for the PS3. Hopefully they will be able to provide some concrete information to us soon.

I bet that Bethesda just scraps episodic DLC for Skyrim on the PS3 altogether and the only way you’ll be able to play it is on the GOTY edition that they release in 2013 sometime.

**UPDATE — 08.30.12 8:40PM — I WAS RIGHT!! Kotaku reports that “PS3 owners might not get Dawnguard after all“. Way to go, Bethesda. Way. to. go.

Guess Who’s Back? Back Again?

Huzzah! After an endless X-crossover, an energy force with a bad attitude is merging once again with a human host to create a Cyclops man-thong destroying dark god; indeed, it looks like the Marvel U. will once more graced with the Dark Phoenix. May she also eat overlong annual “events”, the rotten bastards who have cancelled both NextWave AND the current iteration of The Defenders, whoever dreamed up Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, all extraneous X-books, Wolverine’s ever shifting backstory and Peter Parker’s annoying new sidekick.
It's Dark Phoenix, bitch

Whomever transmogrifies into the Dark Phoenix this go round, I’m pretty sure this will be their theme song:

After the jump, a one panel summation of why NextWave was/is completely amazing.

Did You Realize?!

Really doe

That there was a Metal Gear 25th Anniversary party in Tokyo last night?? I certainly didn’t. Luckily I have the Internet, which told me first thing this morning! Kotaku has very handily scooped up all the bits from last night’s event and have them all in one super sneaky mega post. No desire to read a super sneaky mega post? No sweat, they broke it out too:

New Metal Gear Solid game (kind of)
