12 thoughts about Marvel's big announcement

1. Nothing actually happened today. The Internet goes crazy for announcements, and today might very well go down in history as the single most announcement-y announcement in the history of superhero movies or movies or pop culture or human history. But an announcement is not a movie. Anticipation is another word for enjoying something that doesn’t exist yet. Currently, here on the Internet, there are bizarre people hurling insult grenades at critics who have committed the sin of liking but not loving Interstellar—a movie that none of the bizarre people hurling insult grenades have actually seen. Maybe they will never actually see Interstellar. Anticipation, when it builds up for months or years, can blind you. That is not a culture that loves watching movies; that is a culture that loves looking forward to movies. The Superhero Movie era is an era of announcements. We’re all just unpaid publicists now. The system is in place now; it can’t change. Forget it, Jake, it’s Comic-Con. READ FULL STORY

Classic LucasArts games are available again for the first time in years

For many, Lucasfilm is synonymous with Star Wars. There’s no reason why it shouldn’t be, either—Star Wars is huge.

But if you were playing video games at any point during the late ’80s throughout the ’90s, chances are you have a very different association to the studio bearing George Lucas’ name. Started in 1982 by the man himself, Lucasfilm Games (later LucasArts) would become a beloved games studio that didn’t just make great Star Wars games (like the classic Star Wars: TIE Fighter), but quirky and frequently hilarious adventure games like Day of the Tentacle and the Monkey Island series. But since many of these were computer games for a niche audience, they disappeared after their initial runs—and if you still have a copy of, say, Sam & Max Hit the Road, getting it to run on a modern machine could prove quite difficult. But not anymore.
