Activision reveals The Legend of Korra game release date & new mode, plus the cast & creators delve into Book 4 & the big Book 3 finale.

Four cool videos over at IGN:

1) Interview with Robert Conkey, the producer from Activision on the upcoming Korra video game, which is to be released on October 21st!

2) A bunch of gameplay footage of the Pro-bending mode in the game, with Rob explaining everything in voice over. Dude… I can’t tell you how cool it is to see this sport we created in all of its chaos and fury––without us having to draw it. They even have the tiebreaker face-offs!

3) Interview with Mike and me about the ending of Book 3, the video game, and some tiny tidbits about where Book 4 is headed (TINY ones). I was really sleepy.

4) David Faustino (Mako) and Janet Varney (Korra) talk about love.

Thanks to the fantastic folks at IGN for having us!

With the last few minutes of the finale being chock-full of tender moments, it was perhaps hard to focus on any given one and fully appreciate its significance. Though each was touching in its own way, this scene in particular struck a chord with me as it represents a mutual suffering between father and daughter that illustrates the strength of their love. Despite being the Avatar to everyone else, Korra, in Tonraq’s eyes, is simply his little girl, who he couldn’t protect when she needed him the most. And even now when she has been broken so, all he can see is everything she feels she’s lost. And this genuine reminder of how her father will always see her gives her a reason to smile if only for an instant.

from article:


I am inhabited by a cry.
Nightly it flaps out
Looking, with its hooks, for something to love.

I am terrified by this dark thing
That sleeps in me;
All day I feel its soft, feathery turnings, its malignity.

Clouds pass and disperse.
Are those the faces of love, those pale irretrievables?
Is it for such I agitate my heart?

I am incapable of more knowledge.
What is this, this face
So murderous in its strangle of branches? —

Its snaky acids hiss.
It petrifies the will. These are the isolate, slow faults
That kill, that kill, that kill.
