Sad news this week for fans of The Simpsons.  Actress Marcia Wallace died due to complications from pneumonia . Wallace is best known for her work as teacher Edna Krabappel. It’s sad to see a beloved voice actress die; even more so when they’ve been involved on a show for as long as Marcia Wallace has. I always enjoyed Ms. Krabappel’s snide comments about nearly everything.

For those of you who missed it, the first trailer for Captain America: Winter Soldier is out and it looks fantastic. I’m a fan of Chris Evans as Cap, and I’m looking forward to their expanding his story, especially in modern times. The inclusion of Falcon should be interesting.  I’m also excited to see more of Cap kicking ass.

And remember, kids, 60% of all S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarriers crash!

Finally, an new article from IGN regarding the future of the Final Fantasy franchise. Unfortunately for me it looks as thought they are moving further and further away from the game mechanics that I enjoy most, namely the combat system. I can understand that they want to keep the games competitive and fresh, but I really preferred the older systems.
