A few short days ago Games Workshop briefly took down their website, replacing it with a newly restructured version of their main page. Along with the unfortunate but unsurprising removal of the Specialist Games section (including all PDF rulebooks, damn it) there is a much more streamlined look to the main page.


Advertising is visibly front and centre, with nearly all space given over to their latest products. Many sections now relate to explaining delivery services, gifts and as a whole it resembles a website store far more than before. While there is an obvious push to convince people to purchase items, on the whole this is a definite improvement. With a much more obvious search bar, each hobby sections have been divided up into less cluttered menus of items. Furthermore, it is much more customer friendly with a better laid out FAQ on the website and purchasing items. The unfortunate thing is that, as ever, while the commercial side has much been improved the hobby side has suffered. In this case the website has completely forgotten to carry over a major necessity to even playing basic armies.

Announced earlier today, Firefly will be revived for a second season after the long wait following Serenity. After being acquired by Disney, early behind the scenes facts have spread thick and fast. Chief among these is the fact that episode twenty-two will tie directly into both the new Star Wars sequel and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron thanks to an inter-dimensional time portal.


Conceived by Brian Bendis, the plot will consist of forty minutes in which the characters suffer from random mood swings and violently murder one another. The pre-credits teaser has already featured Kaylee being painfully tortured to death by Captain America thanks to an early misunderstanding. Given the popularity of such themes in Marvel storylines, this is certain to win over new fans. Furthermore the series will shift from live action to an animated format, with characters depicted as cartoon ponies. This is reportedly due to death threats from bronies, who required writers to conform to their personal interests.


Even better news comes from the new crew, which will replace all prior characters in favour of a "star studded band of warriors from across the galaxy!" Early reports have already confirmed Anakin Skywalker will be replacing Mal Renolds, River Tam will be bumped off to make room for Short Round, and Will Turner is expected to take Jayne Cobb's place inboard the ship following the departure of Phil Coulson.

It's like Zach Snyder isn't trying anymore. It's like he is now at peace with the fact that Superman vs Batman is going to be the new Batman and Robin, and he is planning to make it craptacular. Why?! Jesse Eisenberg was announced to play Lex Luthor! You heard right. Lex Luthor, one of the most iconic DC supervillains of all time, Superman's arch nemesis, leader of a few supervillain alliances is played by the blue bird from Rio! You heard right! The blue bird from Rio is playing Lex Luthor!

Of course I hated the idea of Superman vs Batman from the beginning. It's a sequel to Man of Steel, that's strike 1. Strike 2 is that it's a versus movie! And strike 3 was packing in too many characters who need their own movies instead of being rushed into a stupid versus movie to the point where it won't be able to focus on the one-dimensional plot!

The one thing that I normally didn't have as big of an issue with that fanboys did was the casting. Ben Affleck as Batman, while I don't like a lot of his movies, I have to admit he was the bomb in Phantoms. Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, she has acting talent and even though she's thin, she has time to get in shape to look like an amazon for a Wonder Woman movie.

So we're rushing ahead for the New Year by hopefully releasing the beta site of Rise of the Critics by the end of the weekend. This is not set in stone yet as there are some bugs to iron our, not least of which is the bandwidth, but with luck we'll have a video sharing site dedicated to a new generation of online critics up and running for you to play test with. All membership applications will be under approval first as will video submissions. But the good news is you can now link to YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion and Viddler. (BlipTV links should be available come February 2014). You can also upload videos, but given the current bandwidth issues this will be inadvisable for the time being.

The purpose of ROTC is to make full use of the fair use clause and protect online critics from the recent, and unfortunate side effects, of YouTubes ID algorithm. Whilst we respect copyright to the fullest we also recognize the need for the Fair Use Act as a tool for which critics can continue their reviews without persecution for their honesty. Thanks must go to Angry Joe for his video on the issue with YouTube for encouraging me to get back to an idea I put onthe shelf several years ago.
