I wrote about Firewatch a couple of months ago, particularly stoked with the talent behind it. The developer Campo Santo is comprised of Heads from Double Fine, Telltale, and 2K Marin. What a fucking group! Now the developer has dropped an official reveal trailer and…it seems fucking awesome. Hard as Shit to Explain, but fucking awesome. Totally gelling with my recent Lovecraft obsession, offering up a seemingly haunted, and uncomfortable woods to explore. And stuff.
Just watch the trailer.
Lady Sif is tired of you, human. Tired of me, too. Of our mortal squabbling. Thankfully, that doesn’t prohibit us from enjoying this cosplay of her.
It is little secret around here that Matt Fraction ain’t just one of my favorite comic book creators. He’s a source of genuine inspiration and resiliency, and I follow his travels in ways that may be “unhealthy” and “borderline obsessive.” Okay. Whatever. So forgive me if this post really doesn’t fit in anywhere (though to be fair This Site is Me and I Am This Site). But I stumbled across this really fucking outstanding diatribe from Fraction detailing him falling into Hawkguy‘s first issue. It’s tremendous. He admits what I was sort of worrying about at the time (his career dying), once again somehow conjures tragedy into art, and continues to generally move me.
Behold! The goddamn Lagoon Nebula! Okay, okay. It’s behind the cut. But whatever. It’s here, lurking. And would you know, that Nebula ain’t fucking around. At the center of it are two goddamn funnel clouds, each half a light-year long. Which is impressive to me, but probably not to the Universe. ‘Cause the Universe is big. #PostPadding #Obviousness
Last week Johnny Hotsauce and myself spent a good amount of time admiring the fact that Rob Liefeld is truly radical. And almost as though The Stoked One could perceive our excitement, he has issued forth an application for our phones. An application that is centered around helping us be the best Rob Liefeld fans we can possibly be.
Looks like Shane Black has found his next landing spot after helming Iron Man 3 last year. The son of a bitch appears set to tackle a Predator reboot. And while I’d generally roll my eyes at the premise, it’s hard to deny Black’s talent.
Here’s either a) an incredible feat of gaming determination, b) the worst waste of time in WoW history, or both. I can’t imagine both the determination this required, and the amount of time that was burned accomplishing it. But to be fair, I generally do nothing myself and I have no cool claim to fame such as this.

I clearly need to be paying more attention to Rick Remender’s run on Uncanny Avengers. Through no fault of his own, I’ve sort of wavered in and out of his stories. Picking them up when I remember, forgetting them most of the time like a fucking dumb ass I mean — reading the announcement of the upcoming Axis event in October was out of control. Red Skull has the telepathy of Professor X? And the powers of Onslaught? Sign me up.
