Rest in Peace, JewWario January 28, 2014

Saturday night I received incredibly shocking and distressing news that Justin Carmical, better known to the rest of the internet as JewWario, had died.  A former member of That Guy With the Glasses, Justin had one hell of a career as a video game journalist.  He was the host of You Can Play This, an import game review series, participated in three anniversary features for TGWTG (Kickassia, Suburban Knights, and To Boldly Flee), and he was also contributing to William “Suede” Dufrense’s review series on the Pokémon feature films.

I know this is not late breaking news, as many other organizations and people have reported on this since the internet heard the news some time around Saturday.  Having never met the man myself, I can only speculate on how to feel, but after pondering it for several days now I don’t know if I’m any closer to being able to express my feelings about this.  Needless to say, I truly respected the man’s work.  I thought he provided a unique perspective on his videos, and had a style all his own.

I can think of no better way to honor the man I respect than to show some of my favorite work of his.  The following was a short film he did on the third anniversary of his channel.  In it, he discovers a new power he can use to fight a new evil.  You can watch it part 1 here and part 2 here.

Justin was planning to create an entire webseries for his FamiKamen Rider character.  Now, we will never be able to see it.

Rest in Peace good sir.

Just as promised, Maniac plays through the entire Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Demo on the Xbox 360.  The video is directly captured through a digital HDMI source in native 1080p and presented without commentary.  From someone who has played Final Fantasy XIII, I can say that I was not as interested in playing this game until I got a chance to check out the demo for myself.  I’m really happy that I did as I LOVE the new real-time combat system.  Check it out.

For reasons of time, I chose not to include the most recent Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII trailer that played as soon as the demo wrapped up.  If you would like to watch it, you can check it out below.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is coming February 2014 to the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
