Many people who are fans of video game and who are in the gaming industry were shocked by the sudden and unexpected closing of Irrational Games, the makers of BioShock and BioShock Infinite, including many of the people who worked at the company. Though surely a difficult thing for the people it affected most to get past, life does indeed go on, as they say. And so it was only a matter of time before the tremendously talented group of people who worked on the BioShock games started making new games.
As it turns out, a pair of new games from new developers featuring the talents of former Irrational employees have now sprung up on Kickstarter, and so we’re happy to help spread the word. Both games—one titled The Black Glove from Day For Night Games, the other The Flame in the Flood from The Molasses Flood—look phenomenal in very different ways. One looks somewhat similar to BioShock (in a good way), while the other looks far from it.
You can read more about both projects and see gameplay for both titles in their Kickstarter videos below!
Each and every week “Americana Assassin” MK2Fac3 and “Midwest Marauder” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of June 20, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
Whhaaaaat?!!? You remember me, right? Well, I apologize for the lack of fac3 (faceless?) time on these here websites. A lot has changed recently and Tuesdays and Wednesdays have become even busier for me recently, what with the new job and all… (pausing for congratulatory high fives), so I’ve been away for like a week or something and some have said that I phoned in the previous week’s, but to those people (HENCHMAN!!!), I say this, “I’m back, BABAY!” And there have been some truly amazing comic books over the last few weeks. Did you guys read Creator Owned Heroes? I may be jumping the gun a little bit since it’s only been one issue, but I honestly think it could be a game changer. And while this week may not be jam packed full of potential game-changers, there’s some really good stuff to look forward to. So, follow me past the break, so that we can talk about all the great comics that are coming out this week. This is The GoD List, after all.
