In Other News – 26 October 2016

Ion debate spoof

I used to have a thing about collecting quotes. It was a silly teenage quirk, but was fun at the time. One of my favorites was “Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups”. It’s not to undermine anyone’s intelligence, but when I see the way internet mobs can destroy lives, or the way crowds can respond to random prompts, it can make me afraid for humanity. Why do I mention this? Well, because I got my absentee ballot in the mail this week. That’s right, I’m ready to cast my vote in the US election. Now to just get Gavin to stop sending me Trump videos.

What happened today? Bethesda will no longer send out early review copiesGoing free-to-play wasn’t enough to save Evolve and Infinite Warfare’s live action trailer reminds us that games can be great escapism.

But In Other News: Watch Dogs 2 pokes fun at scientology, Resident Evil brands some makeup for Halloween and this Moogle gameplay trailer is a decoy.

Here’s the news we didn’t post today because we were too busy imagining the egotistical bundle.

    Goods quotes are awesome.

    “It is better to reign in Hell that to serve in Heaven” – Milton

    “Liberty is a bitch who must be bedded on a pile of corpses. In the end, no matter how high she holds her torch, she is still a whore with rats in her dress and cold jism running down her leg.” – Voltaire (with a bit of Gaiman thrown in there)
