On My Radar: July 25th 2014
On my Radar is a weekly segment bringing you things from around the web. It’s the first week back for it so please pardon the dust. More update and awesomeness coming soon…
Halo: Nightfall shows us it’s lead character, and he’s dreamy.
Halo: Nightfall, the upcoming prequel digital series to Halo 5, has shown us its lead in Agent Locke. Played by Mike Colter (The Good Wife, Men in Black 3), he remains somewhat of a mystery. I would talk about how amazing it is to have a black man in Halo, but Bungie and 343i have both created playable characters that were not white males. via Variety
Destiny beta now open to all!
Not gonna write much about this. Just GO GO GO! via Bungie
Youtube buying Twitch?
Did you think that Mays story about YouTube purchasing Twitch was a flash in the pan? Well it’s actually sizzling nicely. I wonder when they will fix all the stream chats… via Venture Beat
Keith Olbermann blasts the NFL.
Not video game related but amazing: Keith Olbermann melts the NFL with his tirade about Ray Rice and how the NFL lacks respect for women. via Deadspin
Dwayne Johnson has the power of a god.
Over the past few years, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been rumored to have been cast to play many different DC heroes. Looks like we are going to find out soon which one he bagged. Dwayne is alluding to the powerful Shazam! but I’m still bummed he won’t be playing Lobo. via i09
