The Weekly Swarm: 11/11 – 11/17

Ruby Hornet's The Weekly Swarm

The new generation of video games has officially begun this past Friday with the launch of Sony’s PlayStation 4. We’re living in the future, everybody. It’s only a matter of time before we all become cyborgs and fall in digital love with robots and androids. Of course, this is many, many years in the future. For now, we still have to deal with eating food and sleeping and sicknesses. I suffered from a life-threatening cold at the beginning of the week last week, but I’m happy to report that I’m 90% free from the bug. It also didn’t hurt that I spent a good amount of my weekend gaming on the aforementioned PS4. Life is good.

Ruby Hornet is good, too, with another awesome week of content. We had everything from the first trailer for Noah, an amazing 30 for 30 spoof on Space Jam, a new Wes Anderson short film, reviews for both Go for Sisters and Charlie Countryman, Aaron Cohen’s latest mixtape, our Fun Fun Fun Fest recap, ShowYouSuck’s new single from Dude Bro, BENEFIT’S return, Childish Gambino’s brilliant music video with Abella Anderson, live photography from FFF Fest, news that Amazon packages will be delivered on Sundays, PaRappa the Rapper’s rumored return to video games, our Top 10 Best PS3 games, and so much more.

Check out everything we did last week below!
