Kill Him, Mr. B

Life. It's half of the name of this blog. It's a wonderful thing. It's also an exasperating, exhausting thing that often prevents me from doing what I want. What I want is to update this blog with something...anything! And I finally have a few minutes to do so. I could not pass up the opportunity to showcase this gorgeous Bioshock t-shirt. There are so many I would have loved to post - and still will eventually in the future - but I've been so bogged down with other stuff that it was impossible.

Since Bioshock is one of the most memorable games I have played, this is the perfect excuse to finally interrupt life for once. Go away work, no thinking about Christmas shopping, put the tons of holiday baking out of my mind, because "Kill Him, Mr. B" perfectly captures this underwater nightmare in shades of green and blue, with menacing eyes of red, a Big Daddy towering over the ruined city that quakes underfoot and cowers with the spin of his drill, protecting the Little Sister in his charge. Chilling. I screamed every time I heard one of them running at me from behind. I need to play it again. It's been too long.

Missed this tee? If it's any day other day than the day I published this post then the answer is yes. If I haven't updated the links yet, just ask and I will try to find it at another site for you.

Got your fill of gaming tees? Looking for something else? Please also see for other shirts, hoodies, posters and more depicting, and often mashing up, my favorite things, such as Doctor Who and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Not only do I post shirts; often I'll talk about the particular series or movie and what it means to me. Sometimes I'll even start with a novella's worth of words about an episode and then maybe have a shirt at the end. It all depends on what's avaialble on the day and the mood of the piece I've written. Sometimes I don't even post a shirt at all. If you'd prefer to not wade through all that, I'll be sad, but you can just go directly to all T-Shirts.

Finally I have a reason to post again! There have been other opportunities, but nothing got me to stop in my tracks because I just had to write about it. This one is special. I have never seen a more eerily gorgeous Batman shirt, or Batman anything. I would absolutely buy this for me, or my brother (who is REALLY into this series), if only I hadn't spent so much money satisfying my new Twin Peaks obsession recently. I'll definitely be buying it in the future if the artist, AlynSpiller, makes it available somewhere else. For now it's available for today only starting at $11 at TeeFury.

[UPDATE] At the end of the day I ended up buying my brother this t-shirt in two different colors, because I asked him if he wanted it and he couldn't decide which was better. :)

I heard this morning that the PC port of Arkham Knight is buggy, via this hilarious Ctrl+Alt+Del comic and then in a comment below this shirt at TeeFury. But I don't play on PC anyway usually. Always had to do with the fact that I was perpetually broke and couldn't afford good tech to play the latest games, so I was console most of the way. So I'm not disappointed by that, and it looks like Arkham Knight is getting good ratings on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

I walked away from Arkham Knight shocked, satisfied, and in dire need of someone to discuss the story with.

Good thing, because my brother was putting off getting into the shiny new generation of consoles. No games really interested him enough to justify spending so much money again, especially since there's such a huge backlog of games for every console previous that are just sitting around gathering dust while he works. You know, being an adult means games come last far too often. Happens to me, too. Every day I have to choose between playing a game and actually getting off my butt and exercising or taking care of my blogs...or, *ugh*, household chores. I'm actually finishing up some side missions I missed before Arkham Origins forced me into catching The Joker and completing the game. Yes, I'm still on Origins. I haven't even started Assassin's Creed: Revelations, and I just remembered I never finished Okami! It's been years. I think I've said that before. If only someone would do my job for me. I just want to play all day.

Wander Vs Fox McCloud

Wander's Colossal Creature
McCloud's Arwing Academy

I'm a couple days late getting to TeeFury's Super Gaming Collection, but don't worry because there are still five days to go. The two tees here are my favorites of the collection. McCloud's Arwing Academy and Wander's Colossal Creature Control, both by GamerPrint, are $15 each. I loved the loneliness that pervaded Shadow of the Colossus and had tons of fun with Star Fox 64. It would take too long to write about all 18 shirts, and 2 posters, but I encourage you to check them out. There are shirts inspired by mainstays, such as Mario, Zelda, Pokemon and more. Now, it's time to go start a new game plus of The Last of Us. I'll share thoughts about that one soon. I wonder if there are any good shirts featuring Joel and Ellie.
