For years, fans have been toiling away in Grand Theft Auto IV, creating homemade add-ons for the likes of Frozen, Batman, Superman, Captain America and more. However, the limitations of the previous entry became more and more obvious every year after its release. It took longer than expected for Rockstar Games to bring Grand Theft Auto V to the PC, but once the game arrived, it took little time for modders to let loose in the latest open world adventure from the fan-favorite developer. With GTA V came a bigger, more detailed sandbox to play in. The faux California setting also made it perfect for the return of Tony Stark and his alter ego, Iron Man.
Thanks to JulioNIB, Iron Man and his MK III armor can now be used to wreak havoc on the streets of Los Santos. As you can see in the video, Iron Man isn't exactly welcome in the neighborhood The Families (Franklin's former gang) calls home. NPCs react to him with the proper indignation and lack of respect. You'd think people would learn by now not to diss a man in an armored suit, but sometimes you need to earn respect on the streets. With little provocation, Iron Man lets loose on some passing cars, showing off the brute strength added to the suit to make it more than just a cosmetic upgrade.
If you're the kind of person who keeps up on a very specific kind of news, then you might remember that last year, the city of Yokohama, Japan was host to one of the greatest events in human history. For nine days, Yokohama played host to over a thousand Pikachus, marching through the streets and, one assumes, tempting Team Rocket into what would have been the biggest heist of their careers.
Sadly, we do not live in a perfect world where this is happening literally all the time, but on August 8, the electric Pokemon will return to Yokohama for another nine-day celebration... and this time, they will be dancing. The event's official name is "Dancing? An Outbreak Of Pikachus," which is equal parts whimsical and terrifying, and thanks to an instructional video, you can learn to dance along!
None of Batman's closest friends and family have been with him nearly as long as dutiful butler Alfred Pennyworth. While the character has seen some action in the comics and animated ventures of the Dark Knight, the video game versions of the loyal servant have largely been portrayed as just that. Thankfully, one devoted Pennyworth fan set forth to buck that trend, and give the over-qualified major-domo a chance to shine.
Though the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight is still rather borked, the time without a properly functioning game has given PC players a chance to fool around with the game's files. After learning how to insert non-playable characters into the fold, Batman Arkham Videos (via Polygon) was able to get Alfred himself in place of Bruce Wayne for much of Arkham Knight's action. "I've tried to edit some files in Batman: Arkham Knight and finally managed to play as Alfred Pennyworth," said the YouTube description. "His moveset is very limited, he cannot perform counter-attacks, environmental takedowns or dual takedowns, but he can still kick plenty of ass."
Upcoming collectible toy video game Lego Dimensions has already promised a wealth of crossover potential with the likes of Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle starring alongside each other in an adventure that spans (almost) all of Lego's properties. While we've been focused on characters from Back to the Future, Scooby-Doo and Portal joining the fray, we almost forgot about the idea that many of these characters exist in different forms within the Lego Universe already thanks to the Lego Movie. TT Games hasn't forgotten though.
In the latest trailer for the developer's new flagship Lego title, we get to see a multitude of familiar faces from all ranges of Lego lines, but it's the chance meeting of DC's Batman and Wyldstyle's former flame, Batman, that gives us the clearest idea of what to expect from the upcoming action game. The lines between realities have been blurred beyond recognition, and now Batman and Batman will have to figure out which Batman is the Batman-est Batman to don the cape and cowl.
There comes a time for every single character of every single movie, video game, television show, sport, galactic council, and trading card series when it must succumb to the Pop transformation. This September, that time comes for Batman: Arkham Knight, the latest and final game in Rockstead Studios' Batman: Arkham trilogy.
The reveal comes courtesy of IGN, which debuted the four figures in the upcoming line exclusively this week. Previously, Funko released figures based on the Batman: Arkham Asylum incarnations of Batman, Joker, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Killer Croc, but hasn't touched either Arkham City or Arkham Origins as of yet. That's okay though, as the most recent Batman game will likely draw more water from fans.

This year, TT Games continues its brief tradition of rotating comic book Lego game releases from Marvel and DC with Lego Marvel's Avengers. Based on the two Avengers films, Lego Avengers will allow you to play through both movies with the actual cast doing the voice overs. No new audio will be recorded of course; like Lego The Hobbit, this game will reuse the dialogue from the films in place of having actors like Robert Downey, Jr or Chris Hemsworth reprising their roles.
TT Games held a small interview session before the panel at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, and we spoke with producer Matt Ellison about the upcoming action game. As the third Lego game TT will be releasing this year (Lego Jurassic World is available now, and Lego Dimensions arrives this fall), we discussed what makes Lego Marvel's Avengers different and what new elements would be incorporated, from characters to mechanics, to keep the Lego experience fresh.
Though the release of Batman: Arkham Knight went rather smoothly for Rocksteady Studios on console platforms, the PC release has been an absolute hot mess since last month. The good news is Rocksteady has taken up the reins from Iron Galaxy, the studio who handled the PC port, to fix up all the issues the computer version has had since it dropped. The bad news is those fixes are likely still months away.
According to a leaked email from EB Games Australia (obtained by Kotaku AU), Warner Bros. has informed the retailer that a patch won't be ready until spring. At first that sounds incredibly damning, but Australian spring begins in September, which means we're looking at six to eight weeks for the update to arrive at the earliest. Given how much work needs to be done, expecting that patch to arrive at 12:01AM on Sept. 1 might be a tad unrealistic.
The release of Rocksteady Studios' Batman: Arkham Knight has come and gone, and left a divisive trail in the Batmobile's wake. Whether you found the missions focused on the tank-like Batmobile tedious or thought the inclusion of Batman's iconic ride was a brilliant gamble on Rocksteady's part, the developer is still planning on supporting the game with even more Batmobile goodies. While the Batgirl story DLC is dropping this month (this week for Season Pass holders, next week for everyone else), Rocksteady has teased the next batch of add-ons with some new images.
Where the Batgirl missions will be handled by Arkham Origins studio WB Montreal, the remaining content will be handled exclusively by Rocksteady. We know the next six months of DLC will introduce new villains, skins, challenge maps, race tracks, Batmobile models and story missions, but we know little details about what that means. For all we know, the only story missions will be the Batgirl content arriving this week, and the remainder just be different skins, Batmobiles and race tracks. Case in point, the upcoming August drop, which features seven new skins, and the classic Tim Burton era Batmobile.
Leading up to San Diego Comic-Con, I wondered what kind of special surprise Telltale might have in store for fans of its episodic adventure game, The Walking Dead. Based on the comic of the same name, we've had two seasons of zombie-fueled personal stories centered on the littlest survivor in the world, Clementine. Instead of vaguely teasing the upcoming third season, which won't be ready until 2016 at the earliest, or the upcoming Michonne mini-series, due later this year, Telltale took the opportunity to celebrate its landmark first season with a one-night only live performance.
This event had actually been in the works for some time, with the original intent to have it happen as a way to kick off the launch of The Walking Dead, Season 2. Timing just couldn't be worked out, so this live performance sat on the back burner until this year's Walker Stalker Fan Fest over at Petco Park in downtown San Diego. There, at home plate, an inflatable movie screen stood tall over a tiny stage. As the sunlight faded behind the stadium, Telltale introduced the players, and we began our journey back to that fateful day when Lee and Clementine first crossed paths.
