Electronic Gaming Monthly has an article up in which they subject some current ten to twelve year old kids to our favorite videogames of the 70s and 80s and record their reactions.
For those fans of the animated Batman series, Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman is scheduled to hit DVD October 21st.
The animation is at the average level found within the later part of the animated series, and while certainly not quite “feature length movie” quality, is better than some of the worse early seasons from the same production house. There are a few spots where those familiar with animation techniques will spot a few corners cut, as well as other spots that contain some very well done sequences.
The plot is relatively complex in its twists and turns, given that this is a movie spawned from an animated series, something the adult fans will appreciate, while still being appropriate for kids. The main characters are well-acted, with the possible exception of Robin, whom thankfully gets little screen time and makes one wonder what the point in basing the story in the time period where Batman has a sidekick was.
Overall, a definite recommended rental from your local video store when it comes out next week.
Wired magazine has a nice article on Linus Torvalds, the man behind the Linux revolution, written for those who need an introduction to the man.
