Gamescom in Germany was last week. Some big bombshells were dropped. The biggest one was probably Sony announcing the PS4 reaching 10 million units sold through world wide in less than a year.
There was also tragedy.
The big news headlines now are the riots in Fergesun, Missourri over the shooting of an unarmed black male by police. A police shooting of a black male that may have been racially motivated? In the American deep South? You don't say.
But what really hits hard for me is last week Robin Williams was found dead in his home. It appears that he killed himself.
That just twists the knife right there. His death by natural causes alone would be plenty tragic as it is. But to think that he was in such emotional pain that he would take his own life... a man who brought so much laughter and joy to the world ending his own life alone in a room like that... it's just too much.
He loved anime and manga and video games. He bought manga at Kinokuniya in San Francisco Japantown. He was one of us.
Comicket 86 just finished up in Japan. So many hot cosplay girls with photos online.
The Japan Expo Second Impact is coming up this weekend.
