Well, well, well, what do we have here. After months of nay-saying, and doubting, and complaining, Nintendo’s current gen consoles may have found their day.    Super Mario 3D world is killing it on reviews.    As is Link Between Worlds. And Brian Barrett from Gizmodo is saying, he’s getting a Wii U.  Now I know the Wii U has a long way to go, but with the next Mario…

Watched on the projector in my room. Nerd heaven. WB animation movies are an interesting bunch. While the animation is cartoonish and saturday morning-ish, the subject matter is far from it.

  There I was, stuck deep in Zolton territory, with fires in my engine room, shield generator room, and medical bay. I had just lost my pilot to a intruder, a mantis that had somehow made it’s way past my shields. Utter chaos reigned everywhere, while the Mantis ship continued to pummel my ship with missiles.
