I don’t have a whole lot of pictures of my mom and I as I was growing up saved in mobile places, but I do have this nugget. The fostering of a lifetime of nerdiness. One thing is for sure. My mom kept me well supplied in Mario memorabilia. And to a mom who never really stifled the things that I loved I want to say happy Mother’s Day. My dad has always been my playmate but my mom has always been my encourager. And that’s one thing out of the many that I have to be thankful for.

Wanted to do a quickie piece before I got my nightly Mad Men fix. I’d say that this’ll do. Now I’m off to go smoke and drink at my office tomorrow. And live my double life.
INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US COLLECTOR’S EDITION UNBOXING
Today we have a closer look into the contents in the Collector’s Edition of DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios’ comic fight game Injustice: Gods Among Us.
Included in this Collector’s Edition:
- a copy of the game
- bonus DLC content (New 52 character skins for Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman)
- a digital download copy of Justice League Doom animated film
- a copy of Injustice: Gods Among Us Vol #1 comic book
- a 13” statue featuring Wonder Woman fighting Batman
The crown jewel in this Collector’s Edition is the 13” statue featuring a vicious beatdown between comic titans Wonder Woman and Batman. It’s incredibly detailed with the two characters in mid-fight.
The Amazonian has The Last Son of Krypton’s childhood rocket in hand and is posed to strike a final crushing blow against the Dark Knight but you can see he’s struggling to work out his counter escape plan until his last breath.
Comic fans and fighting game fans are sure to enjoy this edition without breaking the bank since it’s only $99. The accompanying digital movie download and bonus DLC make this bundle a decent buy-in but it would have been nice to include the Season Pass (w/ 4 new DLC Characters including Lobo!) at this price to really give fans a bargain.
As a completely unrelated addendum, apologies for the lack of posts over the past couple of days. Super busy right now but I haven’t given up yet again. In the mean time, check out OTL gaming if you haven’t. They should keep you well supplied in gaming posts.
Battle Arena Finale Postponed to Honor Boston Victims
Tonite’s stream for the Injustice : Battle Arena live finale has been postponed in reverence of the events from today’s bombing incident in Boston. Injustice officials went to their Facebook page to say;
In light of today’s event, the Injustice Battle Arena Finale has been postponed. Please check the Injustice Facebook page for updates on when the results show will be rescheduled. Our thoughts and good wishes are with the victims and their families tonight.
However there seems to be an image floating around saying that the first confirmed DLC character for the game will be fan favorite, Lobo.
All of that said, thank you Injustice creators for taking the time to honor those who have been deeply affected by the events today.
Justice Mag - Supergirl & Wonder Womanby Stanley Lau
I was blown away by Stanley’s Wonder Woman piece a few months ago when he first released it, however, the Supergirl one rocks my socks even more. I want this, so badly, to be a thing in real life.

This little Deku scrub looks helpless in Malfey’s Legend of Zelda inspired piece. I know that feel, bro.

Sword and Sworcery and Minecraft by Andrew Colunga
It’s some pixel versus pixel action in this cool mash-up by Andrew. I’ve played quite a bit of both and enjoyed them immensely. Stop by his gallery to check out more cool stuff!

Lightcycles have never looked so good! Same spiel as always, go get this on stuff or leave him a pretty comment or something. Mainly because this piece is cool.
