I’ve developed a brilliant concept for a superhero. My rise to fame is now inevitable. Work may halt on this blog while I build my merchandizing empire.
The hero is a throwback to the classic, bygone days of Golden Age comics. He’s big and brave and a true American. He wears red, white, and blue and always has time to fly over to the school, sign autographs and admonish the kids to “be good”.
He’s bulletproof, fireproof, he can fly, he’s super-strong, and he always carries a bottle of lighter fluid and his “Zippo of Justice”. He doesn’t fight super-villans. (Let’s face it: The other guys all have that game covered.) Instead, he hunts down spammers and sets them on fire. Once he’s roasted them alive, he kills their family and then impales their dog on a spike in front of the house as a warning to other spammers.
I’m calling him “The Broiler”. I’ve sent my idea off to Marvel along with some of my own concept art (note to self: Buy more red crayons) and now I’m just waiting to hear back from them.
I’m going to be rich!

I'm not surprised a fighting game has an absurd story. I just can't figure out why they bothered with the story at all.
What is this silly word, why did some people get so irritated by it, and why did it fall out of use?
The Disappointment Engine
No Man's Sky is a game seemingly engineered to create a cycle of anticipation and disappointment.
Skyrim Thieves Guild
The Thieves Guild quest in Skyrim is a vortex of disjointed plot-holes, contrivances, and nonsense.
What did web browsers look like 20 years ago, and what kind of crazy features did they have?
