American Links

HBO exec explains why they aren't making that American Gods series. With the critical and commercial success of Game of Thrones a lot of book nerds were excited about HBO adapting Neil Gaiman's bestseller American Gods into a TV series. After a year or two of development HBO ended up passing. Their reasons are pretty good. Hopefully the show will still get picked up somewhere. It's one of the few books I've read recently that I felt was screaming for a movie/tv adaption as I was reading it.

Modder Finds Files for Better Graphics in Watch Dogs’ PC Version. Remember how 2 years ago Watch Dogs blew everyone away with a super bad ass trailer at E3 and when the game finally came out this year everyone was like, meh? Turns out Ubisoft nerfed the game on purpse. A modder found a bunch of left over textures hidden in the game files that improve the games graphics.

One of two things probably happened here. Either they made the game look worse on PC so it would port better to Xbone and PS4 or they developed for hardware specs that never happened. Either way the PC master race kind of got screwed on this one. Maybe once it's all settled down Ubi will release a patch that improves the graphics to where they should be.

28 of the Best Burgers of the Day From ‘Bob’s Burgers’. I'm sooo sad. This weekend I watched the last Bob's Burgers available on Netflix. It's been my go to show for midnight feedings the last month or two. I've tried Attack on Titan but it's a bit too serious for 1am, plus all the subtitles. I've also tried Venture Bros but man the animation and pacing on the first season is ROUGH. Orphan Black is too long... I don't know. I never did watch the new season of Arrested Development. That should last what, a week?

12 Video Game Annoyances That Need to Die (Part 1). Ugh.. I'm so tired of pay to play games. Every game I download on the kindle for my son is jacked up with pay to play bs. I'd gladly pay 9.99 or whatever for Angry Birds Go if they would just let me/him play the game. As it stands you have to play for HOURS if you want to unlock the cars you need to unlock the last couple levels and after you've raced 5 times then you either have to stop playing for 30 minutes or pony up some Gems, which cost a fortune. And that's not even getting to the telepods... damn telepods.
