If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on an APB drop us a line via email or Twitter.
- Science Bros Forever!
The Veef Show podcast looks at the Avengers movie. It also links to some great articles in the show notes that are worth reading if you enjoyed the movie.
- AGE of Empires
Gundamn! looks at the start of the final generation of Gundam AGE. They also examine the Western Mecha tradition in a listener submitted section.
- That is ONE Way of Introducing More Women into the Cast of Legend of the Galactic Heroes
Takarazuka Revue is doing a performance of Legend of the Galactic Heroes. That is just sort of amazingly awesome.
- Virtual Dollars are Big Money
Valve games just hired an economist to help tweak their virtual economies. The economist they hired just started a blog to talk about what he discovers. This could be very interesting.
- Type-Moon News Roundup
- Gackt Is the Final Boss
Double happy news this weekend! Sengoku Basara will be starting a live-action TV series adaption in July with Gackt playing Oda Nobunaga. It is very weird seeing Gackt with a mustache.

Play the game the upcoming Disney movie Wreck-It-Ralph is supposed to be based on. Classic and simple it certainly has an arcade feel. I got pretty far and other obstacles are added as you move up the building, I’m curious if there is an actual ending.

While my feelings on the film remain conflicted, a week’s worth of Spidey-themed stuff sounds like tons of fun. Signings, prizes, scavengers hunts, museum exhibits, etc.!
- Feminist Frequency Kickstarter Successful Despite Internet Asshats
I couldn’t possibly come up with a better title. There has been a lot, A LOT, of recent things going on with women and videogames of late. This is one of the piece of it. The Tropes VS. Women Kickstarter campaign has been inundated with some seriously vile attacks, which pretty much prove the point for the need to talk about this stuff. And this is for a series of videos that hasn’t even been made yet. If you have a chance Feminist Frequency has done other really good videos about women in media worth checking out.
Probably did not expect this one:
