Maybe it was because Arkham Asylum was in the works at the time or that the mobile game market wasn't quite the powerhouse it is today, but for whatever reason there weren't any The Dark Knight videogame adaptations when the film dropped in 2008. While it's probably for the best that TDK's narrative wasn't reduced to what would've almost had to have been an epic boss battle with Heath Ledger's Joker -- a character intentionally unaffected by Batman's traditional physical violence -- CineFix has found a way to present key scenes from the film in charming 8-bit style.
Warner Bros. Games Montreal has released a new trailer for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins game, revealing two alternative looks for Batman that will only be available for Sony's PlayStation 3. As announced at E3 earlier this year, the Knightfall pack will allow gamers to play as classic Adam West Batman from the 1966 TV show, or as goofy light-up-armor Azrael Batman from the 1993 comic crossover Knightfall.
It looks like Capcom's recently released DuckTales Remastered isn't the only game in town when it comes to adventuring with Uncle Scrooge and Launchpad. Disney has rolled out an all-new and all-different kind of game featuring Duckburg's wealthiest resident called DuckTales: Scrooge's Loot on iOS and Android. Unlike the DuckTales games on NES and Game Boy and the new DTR, Scrooge's Loot isn't a sidescrolling adventure title, but rather a 3D multiplayer battle game complete with feathered customizable characters. Considering this is a game starring the miserly McDuck, it's also a bit surprising to find out the mobile title is free.
Fans of Playdom's Facebook-fueld Marvel: Avengers Alliance got a glimpse at a brand new Marvel character this weekend when one of the key players in the Infinity crossover was revealed in the game before being properly introduced in the comics.
Avengers Alliance is a turn-based combat strategy game available via Facebook and Playdom's website in which players recruit Marvel heroes and train them up to take on the bad guys. The game routinely offers limited time "Special Operations" missions, sometimes based on comic or movie story lines such as Avengers Vs. X-Men, Dark Avengers, and Iron Man 3. The current Special Op is based on Infinity, and offers two unlockable new characters. One is Black Bolt, king of the Inhumans. The other... well, potential spoilers for Infinity ahead...
Are you video game prey or are you the video game hunter? On December 5 Attack on Titan fans in Japan can ponder this question while fighting to protect humankind's walled stronghold from grotesque man-eating giants in Spike Chunsoft's Attack on Titan: Humanity's Last Wings on Nintendo 3DS. Announced a few months back, Famitsu has unveiled new screen shots from the game based on Hajime Isayama's AoT manga and its corresponding anime series.
Fans who're interested in picking up WB Games Montreal's upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins on October 25 may want to clear their schedule if they haven't played the first two games in the trilogy by Rocksteady Studios. According to GameStop, new bundles pairing the content-enriched "Game of the Year" editions of 2009's Batman: Arkham Asylum and 2011's Batman: Arkham City are coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 23.
Focusing mostly on sidescrolling action, the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate has been characterized as a "MetroidVania" experience, much to the delight of gamers like, say... Chris Sims. In a new interview with Polygon, BAOB director Mark Pacini may have sweetened the pot even further for players as he likened the title to yet another classic gaming series. How does Batman with a Mega Man twist sound?
Marvel's Thor: The Dark World movie arrives in theaters on November 8, and along with, Gameloft's official mobile video game version. Wanna smash things with crazy combos and exaggerated animated Mjolnir attacks? Does strutting around Jotunheim, Asgard and other realms with all kinds of allies to pop evil Dark Elves and their ilk upside the noggin sound legit? Judging form the game's new second trailer, it looks like fans will be able to do all of that and more on "smartphones and tablets" (sugguesting not just an iOS, but potentially an Android release) in the coming months. You can see the second trailer, plus several new screen shots from Gameloft's upcoming Thor: The Dark World The Official Game, after the jump.
Two of the newest (or... youngest?) heroes from the Assassin's Creed world are set to debut as part of Square Enix's Play Arts Kai line. Hatchet-weilding Assassin's Creed III protagonist Connor and the swashbuckling Edward Kenway from Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag are both set to join the 9.5" tall line of heavily detailed and accessorized action figures in the not-too-distant future.
Trigon and his seven-deadly-sinning spawn have officially begun tearing it up in the newly launched DC Universe Online DLC pack. Appropriately titled "Sons of Trigon," the new DLC sees heroic players team with Wonder Woman, the Teen Titans and magical characters like Zatanna and John Constantine in a nightmarish version of Gotham City to battle Circe, Trigon's kiddos and villainous players over the fate of reality. If the good guys win, Trigon stays banished. If Circe and company win, Trigon, his antlers and all four of his freaky demon eyes get to, I dunno, eat everyone in the DCU's children? I dunno. I'm sure they'd do something like that. The new DLC also includes the new healing-focused Celestial Power, Legends PvP characters Donna Troy and Cheetah, Brother Blood and Raven themed PvE gear, new feats and collections and other demon-y jazz. You can check out the new "Sons of Trigon" launch trailer and images after the jump.
