On this fortnight’s episode we mourn the loss of Christopher Lee, discuss Jurassic World‘s amazing box office record, gawk at the release of Mother in the US for the first time, rejoice for the announcement of Shenmue 3, let out a sigh of relief for the American Gods TV show moving forward, let Nick talk about the Cyborg 009/Devilman crossover, and stare puzzled into the abyss at the incompetence of Saskatoon Blitz.
Also, Trae’s going to Oz Con next weekend in West Plains, MO. You should come.
There are a handful of things which have always been my go to “never gonna happen” metaphors. I mean sure, Duke Nukem Forever came out in 2011 — but I still had an official English translation of Mother and Shenmue 3 to have faith in the never-existence of. My world was simple to understand and everything made sense.
Well, E3 this year seems determined to upset my entire worldview. First, Mother has now come out for the Virtual Console. And if that wasn’t bad enough, now?
Technically an official Kickstarter for it was all that was announced, but since it got funded in less than nine hours, yeah — it’s happening. It’s totally happening. How the hell is this happening? The world no longer makes any god-damned sense.
