    A thought occurred to me the other day as if I were deadlocked in a quandary. By other day I mean on PlayStation 4 launch day. By thought I mean I like cake. By deadlocked I mean that a jury could not agree on a verdict. And by if I mean to describe a conjunction meaning on the event that or on the condition that. And quandary, of course, meant whether I should purchase the NBA 2K14 game or Madden NFL 25. The budgeting person in my brain mentioned getting one would be all you have time for. The reviewer in me said, hey, wouldn't it be great to talk about both?

    At this point it should be clear which direction was taken.

    Last week, as we picked up the fireworks and gulped down the last drops of champagne from the bottom of our New Year’s flutes, Disney dropped a bomb I think we all knew was coming: 2014 will be the last year for the two-decade partnership between Lucasfilm and Dark Horse comics that have given us the Star Wars comics a generation of fans have grown up with. The license will now be moving to Marvel Comics, which actually published Star Wars before, back during the 70s and 80s, and before Dark Horse was a going concern in comics at all. This was, sadly, not really a surprise. Most of us who track the news from the geekier side of pop culture have been waiting for it ever since Disney purchased Marvel in 2009, and the only thing that would have surprised me less is if Marvel announced they were cancelling one of their highest-selling titles, say, Wolverine, and restarting it with a new first issue next mo—what? Oh. Well, there you go then.
