Ladies, Gentlemen, and everyone in-between; we have witnessed a major milestone in astronomy. After many, many years of depending on computer-generated images based on the what the theory of general relativity has predicted for decades, we finally have an actual image of a black hole in space. I know, I know; IT’S FINALLY HAPPENED!!! A collaboration of scientists worldwide used the Event Horizon (heh-heh) Telescope to find this gigantic — that’s putting it lightly — black hole located in the Messier 87 galaxy that measures up to 6.5 million times the mass of the Sun. The image shows a sort-of-shadow made by the event horizon bending and sucking in light.

In less than a month from now, New Japan Pro Wrestling‘s G1 Climax Tournament will begin, and the promotion recently announced which wrestlers will be taking part in the 28th edition of the tournament.

On Christmas Eve, Atlus held their Persona live stream, which was 75 minutes of awesome insanity that featured news about the upcoming Persona 5 anime, Blu-ray sets, the official canon name for the Persona 5 protagonist (you know, Joker), and the two upcoming Persona: Dancing Night game titles. Trust me, that stream was full of goofy-wackyness!

A couple of weeks ago on ‘Sup Holmes, Destructoid’s Jonathan Holmes conducted a near-two-hour interview with Dan Adelman, now the former head of digital content and development at Nintendo of America, who before that was the product planner at Microsoft and business development manager at Xbox. As a longtime gamer, you’d you can see that Adelman has had some of the best jobs in the games industry, however he recently left all of that behind to create his own business and marketing consulting service company for independent game developers.
