So it’s E3 time again, and these bastards are doing everything in their power to break down my will and make me buy a gaming system. As I mentioned before, they struck a low blow by partnering with The Beatles to create a version of Rock Band that’s all their own. Then, knowing I was already weakened, they put out a trailer like this:
I tell you what: when Needcoffee becomes my full-time job (more on that hopefully soon) I’ll buy a gaming system because then at least I can write the thing off because I can review games. I’m almost completely serious about this.
Fans of Alan Moore will want to check out iTunes, because that’s where they can get bits from Future Shocks, one of his early works. Now the 2000 AD Forum post mentions this as an “unseen masterpiece,” which is a bit confusing to me. Because this was published in 2000 AD obviously, which means it’s not really “unseen.” Even though I’m assuming by “unseen” they mean to us over here in the U.S. And there’s been trade paperbacks of the strip–but perhaps they were imported? The lines are so grey these days it’s hard to tell. But regardless, if these are available for $0.99/Â£0.59 an episode–I don’t know how many bits make up an “episode”–but that’s a helluva lot cheaper than it would be to snag in a trade or single issue. Regardless, everybody could use some more 2000 AD in their lives, Moore or not–because it’s the only anthology book I’ve ever read that actually, you know, worked. You can find the info on how to purchase at the iTunes store here.
Also of note when watching Up was the Toy Story 3 teaser trailer, which was fantastic in 3-D.
