New beastly router deserves an equally awesome new network name.

Can Lisa Lou Who permanently be the official Officer Vi now?

I didn’t even have to guess what today’s sketch dailies topic would be. So here’s my tribute I drew for a man who was so full of laughter and love. I really did cry over his loss. Aladdin was one of the films I knew him best for since I grew up with it, along with so many of his other roles. Again, RIP Robin, I’m so sorry you had so much sadness in your life, but I hope that you are in a better place, laughing like you always did for the world.

Microsoft has become the rich parents of the kid no one likes (XBone), so they keep buying it nice things that it clearly doesn’t deserve (exclusives) just to get the other kids to play with it.
[Side Note: Don’t take this as any Sony bias. The PS4 was the first Sony system I ever purchased at launch. I’ve had a 360 since launch & was a die-hard Xbox fan. The technophile in me just couldn’t get behind the XBone for $100 more with slower system memory & an embedded HDD. Then post launch, the lowered resolutions & frame rates only reinforced my decision. And don’t even get me started about Don Mattrick—good riddance. I really want the XBox to do well, but there’s just nothing to bring me back to it as of yet.]

Very cool chart showing the % of women in The Avengers, JLA, X-Men, and Teen Titans by decade. Pictures are always great to put things into perspective. Yay art!

My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.

To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…

Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.

— My only statement. My brothers’ are also online. Thank you for all your kindness, and goodbye for awhile guys. xo (via zeldawilliams)

This just in: Crystal Dynamics makes terrible decisions.

The next Tomb Raider is an Xbox exclusive, Crystal Dynamics explains why

Rise of the Tomb Raider, the next game in the reboot of the storied franchise, will be an Xbox exclusive, Microsoft corporate vice president Phil Harrison announced at Gamescom today.

The game is coming Holiday 2015 exclusively to Xbox, he said. It’s unclear how long that exclusivity will last.

From gamerssphere.com:

The PS3 version of Tomb Raider sold more than the 360 version. The numbers: 1.71 million to 2.22 million. That’s a 500,000 copy difference or roughly 30% sales difference. Throw in the 270,000 PC copies sold, and you’ll see that of the total 4.2 million copies of Tomb Raider that were sold, roughly 245% more copies were sold on PC and PS3 than on 360, or roughly 2.5 times as many.

Looking at Definitive Edition sales, we see that about 170,000 of them were XBone sales while 460,000 were PS4 sales. We’re looking at sales roughly 270% or 2.7 times higher on the PS4 than X1…that’s a big number! If we add up all sales for the two editions among the five consoles, we see that Xbox sales are roughly 1.88 million, all other sales are around 2.95 million for a grand total of 4.83 million copies. If I’ve done the math right, that means that a paltry 39% of Tomb Raider sales were on Xbox consoles… yikes.

So I hope Crystal Dynamics collected more than the game was worth from Microsoft in order for them to snag this exclusive for all the Bros out there to not play on the XBone.

I knew they were cutting major sales, but I didn’t know the numbers were like THIS. Bad decision indeed.

Yeah, any perceived Console Wars aside, the only way it makes good business sense is if Microsoft paid a FORTUNE for this property. Otherwise, it’s just another bad decision in a long list of bad decisions from a company that isn’t doing so hot these days.

“Heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says, ‘Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up.’ Man bursts into tears. Says, ‘But doctor…I am Pagliacci.’”
