Sanity is overrated. I want him to use his billions to dress up like a bat and beat up criminals every night. Isn't that what billionaires are supposed to do?

I've always wanted something set in the Thundarr the Barbarian world. It's a destroyed civilization but it's not bleak or barren. It's vibrant and set in many highly recognizable locations albeit broken and overgrown. Also, unlike most post-apocalyptic games it is teaming with wizards, mutants, dinosaurs, robots, aliens and cavemen. At first, I thought Bethesda would be the obvious choice to develop, but Thundarr is super goofy, so I'd pick Volition to make the game.

My second choice would be a Wizard of Oz game by Team Ninja.

I can't understand why anyone in the know would buy a 3DS now when the New 3DS is probably just 6 months away. Well, I guess if you were a huge Persona fan with some disposable income and no patience. Having said all this, it has a nice design. It would be cool if a face-plate for the New 3DS had a similar design.

Or maybe a wizard, yeah, riding a motorcycle with a topless barbarian girl over a rainbow. That would be so bitchin'.

At home, recovering from a hangover. I was between jobs, so I spent a lot of time online. Back then, AOL chat was still a thing. I was in some chat room talking about video games or movie or some such nonsense. Someone then said that a plane had hit the Twin Towers. Many of us thought he was lying because people lie on the internet all time. Pranks where someone would announce that a celebrity had died were commonplace. I went into the living room of my apartment, and turned on the TV. I was born in New York City and had spent the first 10 years of my life there. It had been more than a decade since I had even visited the city, but I have always felt connected to it because it was home. For the rest of the day, I was curled up on my couch full of dread and hopelessness.

Generally, when it comes to first-person shooters, I only marginally follow the stories. Furthermore, I forget most of what's going on as soon as I am done. For example:

  1. Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare. Something about a Russian terrorist then a bomb blows up. I think there was a knife fight at the end, but I could be thinking of MW3.
  2. Halo series. Covenant wants to use the rings to blow up the galaxy, a giant plant shows up, and you race in a warthog to reach an escape ship at the end.
  3. Borderlands / Borderlands 2. Go to Pandora, crazy lady wants you to find a key, evil corporation wants the vault loot / return to Pandora, evil corp dude tries to kill you, gather the band, brother-sister, etc...

I won't be playing Destiny until the weekend (no time, work), but I'm not expecting any more than what I got out of other similar shooters. Move from kill-box to kill-box then get a reward. RPG's are where I look for story, not FPS's.

A year from now they'll be making Kinect games.

They need to do another "Box Office Bomb" podcast. That show should be biweekly at least. Maybe add a sit-down video like the old Screened days.

Isn't DC Universe Online out on the PS4, now? I played the PS3 version and it was okay. Best of all, it's free.
