Remembering what probably should have been the end of Archer

Weeks after the tragic passing of Jessica Walter, the Archer team went to work and put together a touching sendoff for Malory Archer. It was such perfection that this really should have been where they all wrapped it up and called it a series. Alas, that didn't happen because (stop me if you've heard this one before) this show just didn't know when to quit.

Archer's final season starts at the end of August, at which point we can all debate at what point this show should have bowed out gracefully.

Riding the merry-go-round

Here's a neat video from the Minecraft team, showing the building of a giant carousel.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
