Smacking his lips from across the interrogation table, makeup smearing his face like acid wash, The Joker takes an existential swipe at Batman halfway through Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight, and leaves a scar. “I know the truth,” he blabbers. “There’s no going back. You’ve changed things... forever.” Shrouded by an iconic cowl, The Dark Knight’s version of Batman fights the blight eroding his world, Gotham City, by breaking the laws he vowed to protect. The Joker catches him in the paradox, and paints a picture of a world still festering. There are violent Batman imitators. There are “freaks” spawning each day. There’s the establishment, supposedly on his side, but righteous and ready to stab him in the back. Batman can try to be above it all, but in the end, his actions will have consequences. At the time of the film’s release, Nolan told the LA Times that the interrogation scene was “so important and … [Read more...] about We will never see a movie like The Dark Knight again

Dark Souls was once a tightly locked box of secrets. It’s since been unpacked, rather too thoroughly, and now it’s been remastered. But upon its release it was an enigma, a grand kind of meditation, an object of obsessive fascination. The world of Lordran is much vaster than what is contained within the game you buy on Steam. In my mind and in others’, the world sprawls in directions that will never load in.I didn’t want to play Dark Souls in 2011. The marketing campaign was stupid. It was all about how you were going to die, and it wasn’t any more sophisticated than Daikatana’s promise that John Romero would make you his bitch. I didn’t want a game that promised to punish me.
