Tonight: Robot Chicken Does PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Matthew Senreich's Avatar + Posted by Matthew Senreich on Nov 26, 2012

We are all gamers. It’s that simple. A crossover appeared.

When PlayStation asked us at Robot Chicken to literally “play” with their all-star line-up of characters, we were not about to say no. PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale gave us an opportunity in the writers’ room to have the geek discussions we all love to have. Who would destroy who in a fight to the death, or wherever they end up going after being defeated. To make this animated short, we got one of our Head Writers Douglas Goldstein and our super gamer writers Mike Fasolo and Rachel Bloom (check out her geek videos on YouTube) to create this fun off-hours scenario for all our favorite PlayStation characters. Then we got our super geek director/writer Zeb Wells (who y’all may know from his comic book writing history) to dive in and direct. Magic in a bottle.

recap

Turkey! Stuffing! Various types of pie! By now you’re probably nearly recovered from Thursday’s feast (and the subsequent trip to grab one of the many available PS3 and PS Vita Black Friday deals), and ready to catch up on some gaming news from what turned out to be a surprisingly busy week on PS.Blog.

This week saw outfits from one of my favorite PS Vita games head to LittleBigPlanet, a new Zen creation based on one of the most popular story arcs in recent comic history, a look at the second of four games coming to next year’s Sportsfriends compilation (Kickstart it here), a guest post from the legendary Warren Spector, and lots, lots more. Build yourself a leftover turkey sandwich, pour a glass of cranberry juice, kick back, and catch up on the week in PlayStation.
