Update
Skyrim Day

Super Weird Fantasy, Bro

Friday
November 11th, 2011

What? You were expecting a Skyrim comic?

A Mario purist (or Japan-enthusiest) will likely point it out, so I'm just gonna beat them to the punch: in today's comic, Mario is actually dressed as a tanuki, not a raccoon. I felt the joke worked better to an English-speaking audience if I didn't have to explain what a tanuki is so I opted to just go with raccoon. Besides, Super Mario 3D Land seems to be combining the two powers.

I got a lot of nostalgic feelings drawing Mario in the Tanooki Suit. Which got me thinking: Super Mario 3 was a really weird game for American audiences. It only seems normal because I grew up with it. "Yeah, grab the leaf to get raccoon power! When you have a raccoon tail, you can fly!"

Today is 11-11-11. An alignment of elevens so powerful every company felt like taking advantage of it. Aside from the aforementioned Skyrim release, 300+1 Immortals releases today. And the Razr comes back, with the even more specific release time of 11:11. Truly they are the elevenest of all.

And Minecraft dropped their 11-11-11-us-too date for the sake of Minecon. I hope the extra dev time pays off, Notch.

Are you the one person who doesn't have a Wii yet? Really? Well, this is your Black Friday deal! You can laugh at everyone who paid more than twice the market price at launch and get one for a mere hundred bucks Black Friday. It only took you five years of waiting, but who's the real winner in this scenario?

Ridley Scott is talking about doing a new Blade Runner. This makes me strangely uncomfortable; on one hand, Blade Runner is among the most influential sci-fi films of all time. That's a tough act to follow. On the other hand, it's the original director and not someone trying to cash in on a recognizable property. It's also ditching the original cast.

Scott's most recent project, Prometheus, is still in production. It takes place before Alien, a concept that initially frightened me, but now I anxiously await the release. I kind of like the idea of movies that take place in the same universe without necessarily linking.

I leave you with the trailer for the Phoenix Wright movie:
