ACO-Corp™

They’re pretty much gods who are also ex-boyfriends that control metal and brains — Magneto builds a special helmet just to keep Xavier from knowing what his feelings are; HE BUILDS A BRAIN CAGE SO HIS EX-BOYFRIEND WON’T KNOW HOW SAD HE IS. That is the demigod-level mutant equivalent of setting your gchat status to invisible so your ex-boyfriend can’t tell that you’re online. That is so campy Susan Sontag just sat up in her grave and texted John Waters “omg did u hear about Magneto?!!!”

JOHN WATERS DID HEAR ABOUT IT. AND IT RULED.

E.T. cartridges found in infamous Atari landfill
Evidently, Atari did bury its biggest mistake in the New Mexico desert.
Excavators have found copies of the 1982 Atari 2600 cartridge E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial — a notorious flop blamed for console gaming’s collapse a year later — in a dig at an Alamagordo, N.M. landfill on Saturday.
The highly publicized dig, which will be the subject of an upcoming documentary, appears to confirm the story that Atari dumped thousands of unsold E.T. cartridges at the site more than 30 years ago.

Child of Light review: about a girl
Child of Light is exactly the kind of game that I never expected to play.
Spawned from the tech that created the most recent Rayman titles and Ubisoft’s Montreal studio, it’s a handpainted storybook featuring a little girl as its lead character as she explores a fantasy as dangerous as it is beautiful. It’s a role playing game created by a studio known for third person action games and shooters. It’s a downloadable title created by a triple A team.
Going in with the conflicting expectations born of these seemingly opposed origins, I wanted to love Child of Light. And in the light of its beautiful presentation, I did. At least, at first. But as I dug for more below the surface warmth and depth, I came up wanting.
