PlayStation whuppin’ continues, outsells Xbox 3:1 in Q1 2014
Now fucking listen! I own both the DelayStation 4 (LOL I HATE MYSELF FOR PUNS) and the XBONE (I STILL HATE MYSELF), so I have no real vested interest in the console wars. Actually, maybe I want really healthy competition so both companies push themselves. That said — and I don’t know why — I do enjoy watching Sony continuing to roll Microsoft by their fucking ears. (And for those of you who want to point this out, I realize Sony doesn’t differentiate between PS3 and PS4 sales.)

Nintendo posts $97 Milli loss last quarter. Luigi gives console market the Death Stare
I’ll cop to it. I didn’t buy a Wii U when Mario Kart 8 came out. So I hold myself personally responsible for Nintendo’s ass-sucking financial quarter. I mean — surely I must lead by example, right? I gotta get on this.

'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare' Campaign Trailer: Power and Mech Suits 4 All

I consider it something of a personal flaw that I love the Call of Duty franchise. Love it while acknowledging that its brotastic jingoism certainly strives for the Lowest Common Denominator. And there it finds me. Covered in Diet Mountain Dew cans, Doritos flakes, and a raging hard-on to take down injustice everywhere. For America.

EA rolling out Xbox One subscription. $5 a month for their “best” games.
How badly do you want to suckle upon the teat of Electronic Arts and their “best” games? Because for $5 a month, or $30 a year, you’re going to be able to have access to them through an upcoming subscription service. Would you? For me — it would depend on how soon you get new releases? Like, I don’t need to pay for your backlog, EA. Anything you’re publishing that’s worth playing I’m going to buy day one.

Mark Waid’s ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ comic will be in-continuity adventures of TV cast
Maybe it’s telling, but all I can fucking think about when reading that Mark Waid will be bringing Agents of SHIELD to Marvel’s comic universe is this: “What the fuck is going to happen to Weaver and Hickman’s SHIELD?” Cause honestly? If the former is going to cause the latter’s demise — fuck that.

‘Godzilla 2′ is happening. And they’ve revealed the monsters. Already?
Dusting this off from this past weekend’s SDCC. This past weekend! Good god! In Internet Time this news story isn’t just Old, it’s actually So Dead It’s Offensive. But we go forward. As I said, this weekend Legendary revealed that Godzilla 2 was a go. And then for some reason they revealed the monsters. Why? Wouldn’t secrecy and a reveal make more sense?
