Star Wars: The Old Republic cost $33 zillion dollars to make. It didn’t make that back. Now it is going free-to-play up until level 50, and Blizzard is once again sucking the marrow out of the bones of a fallen competition.
Ooph! Now this is a beast of a creative team right here.
Cyeah! Here’s the full trailer for Skyfall. It’s got everything you’d expect from Bond. Senseless violence. Senseless seduction. Him trapped to a chair while a villain monologues.
Marvel has release to the interwebz public the post-credits scene from the Avengers that announces the arrival of the new Big Bad. Now you can either get on with correcting your negligent ass if you haven’t seen it, or gaze at his purple-assed leathery face once more.
When it leaks…it pours? Here’s an armada of leaked images and information regarding PlayStation Smashes People But Not Brothers. All of this was ripped from the private beta version of the game.
At its core, the comic book medium can be thought of as the combining of words and images so as to produce a cohesive narrative. As such, it’s easy to understand why most comics are created not by a single individual, but by a team of creators.

Put away your Crayolas and come read the thoughts of a genuine talent!
Oh golly. Not only is Jonathan Hickman leaving Fantastic Four this year, it also appears that Matty Fraction is throwing up the deuces towards Invincible Iron Man. This saddens me a great deal, Fraction and Larocca having delivered quality Anthony Stark tales for the past, what, four years? Damn. Double damn.
I dug Marc Webb’s riff on Spider-Man, even if the storyline was a cavalcade of mess, wrapped in an entirely gutted plot point. I’d love to see the dude return, and it turns out so would Sony. Shit is just a bit complicated.
Ain’t it always?
Welcome to the Monday Morning Commute!
This is the storage compartment of Spaceship OL dedicated to all the various bits of entertainment we’ll be using to get through the workweek. Think of it as an anti-boredom armory. After I show you the wares I’ll be using to fend off the ennui-goblins, hit up the comments section and do the same.
You think you’re surfing the gnarly waves of crystallized water stuff here on Erf, brah? Think again. Saturn’s moon Iapetus is where all the legitimate skier people are going. We’re talking avalanches like a mofuckah.’
