Angry Zen Minion Kevin Bahrt sent along this video that recalls days of old when I would try desperately to make it past Airman’s stage only to be horribly pwned by the fan man himself. I wonder if Mega Man 9 is just as difficult. I love the 8-bit animation in this video. It would be so amazing if Mega Man was animated like this. Notes on the video indicate that the subtitles might not be completely accurate so I’ll leave it to my Japanese speaking friends to let us know what’s what.
Angry Zen Minion Ted O’Hanlan sends word that one of the writers of that dumb-shit Shia LaBeouf thing, Eagle Eye, is working on a sequel to Blade Runner. Travis Wright and John Glenn worked on a first draft of Eagle Eye before Glenn left the partnership. The two had previously talked about writing a sequel to Blade Runner and even got some input from Blade Runner producer Bud Yorkin, but that all ended a while ago. So if there is still a sequel in the works, Wright is running solo.
No studio is attached to develop the project so for now, it’s all in Wright’s head. Here’s hoping it stays there. Blade Runner needs no sequel. After twenty six years, the film stands the test of time. We rarely get sci-fi films that hold up for even five years. A sequel has little chance of living up to that standard of quality.

Angry Zen Minion S.Blue sent along this clip of Kamen Rider Saga’s henshin and finisher sequence. Saga appears to be quite a sick fuck of a rider. You’d never know from the looks of his sissy rapier, but his finishing move is fucking evil. Almost feel sorry for the Fangire.
In other Rider news, there’s going to be another Den-O movie?! What the fuck! How is Den-O so popular? Ugh.

Angry Zen Minion Tyler Anderson writes in with news that should bring a smile to the hearts of gamers even in this time of financial crisis:
Oh happy day! He’s crusaded after video games since Hot Coffee and he tried getting the Penny Arcade boys arrested without ever leaving his living room. But today, the games end as Jack “Hot Coffee” Thompson, the Tipper Gore of the video game industry, has been disbarred from practicing law for life by the Supreme Court. The official report reads as follows;
“The Court approves the corrected referee’s report and John Bruce Thompson is permanently disbarred, effective thirty days from the date of this order so that respondent can close out his practice and protect the interests of existing clients. If respondent notifies the Court in writing that he is no longer practicing and does not need the thirty days to protect existing clients, this Court will enter an order making the permanent disbarment effective immediately. Respondent shall accept no new business from the date this order is filed.”
On top of all of this, Thompson has been ordered to reimburse Florida bar fees in excess of $43,000.
Gamers all over the globe rejoice.
But Battlin’ Jack Thompson ain’t going out without a fight! In fact, he’s filed an emergency motion with federal court alleging the Florida Supreme Court’s rush to disbarment is retaliation for Thompson’s activism:
The timing of this disbarment transparently reveals its motivation: This past Friday Thompson filed a federal civil rights action against The Bar, the Supreme Court, and all seven of its Justices. This rush to disbarment is in retribution for the filing of that federal suit. With enemies this foolish, Thompson needs only the loyal friends he has.
Ugh. Long ass court battle it is. The good thing, even if a federal court agrees to hear Thompson’s motion, he’s out of gamers hair for a good long while.
So here’s the question, now that Jacky boy is on the outs, who’s coming in to replace him? I fear that this is a short lived victory. In this time of rampant idiotic fear, I bet there are lawyers just chomping at the bit to take Thompson’s anti-gaming crusade to the next level.
