You Can Now Officially Start Caring About Football Again

With video games, sports seasons never ends.  You can keep playing all year while looking forward to releases of roster updates and cover athletes. Wait no longer.  Sportsnation and Madden 25 (as its now called due to the 25th Year Anniversary) have started their annual Cover Vote.  Go on over and vote!!  My suggestion, due to the Madden Curse, is to vote for whom you like least. Chances are they’ll suffer a torn ACL in week 2. Use John Madden’s spooky voodoo to help your fantasy team and take your bookie to the cleaners!

Lest you forget, the best back-of-box blurb for a video game ever (you’ll need to click to embiggen):

What This Town Needs…is Another Batman Crossover

Following the Court of Owls and Death of the Family arcs (sound & fury, signifying nothing), today there’s news of the next large Scott Snyder/Greg Capullo Bat-title arc: “Batman: Year Zero”. The Beat reports that Year Zero will “take the same kind of approach as Frank Miller’s ‘Year One’ story, this will see Batman in the New 52 – establishing the Bat Cave, meeting his first super-villain…”practicing his gravelly voices in the mirror and doing sweet Batmobile donuts in the Arkham Asylum parking lot, flipping the inmates double tall boys.  No wonder they hate him.


Per Snyder:

We tried to preserve as much of Batman’s history as we could and keep what we could of this history intact. It’s ‘The Zero Year,’ the one that no one has told the story of before. We see how Bruce became the Batman, built the cave, faced off with his first super villain … It’s time for a new story showing how Batman became who he is in The New 52. It builds up the mythology.

No matter what they say and/or do, DC simply cannot stay away from convoluted continuity.
