After a few months of teases, DC Universe Online has illuminated its plans for new content in the coming year. A "War of the Light" DLC trilogy is set to kick off in early 2014 with a debut entry centering around Red Lantern-ly rage.
It's been a little over a month since Telltale games released a teaser for the second season of its wildly acclaimed The Walking Dead video game. It didn't announce a certain release date then, and it still hasn't done so yet, but Steam has potentially let the cat out of the bag.
According to the Steam Store, the first episode should be out in less than two weeks, on December 17.
If you wanted a few more origins in Batman: Arkham Origins, seven bucks will get you just that tomorrow.
The new "Initiation" DLC joins up with Bruce Wayne before he became Batman, as he travels through the Paektu-San Mountains of North Korea and tries out his martial arts moves in a bamboo forest, a monastery and two other new challenge maps. It looks about as close as fans can get to playing the League of Shadows scenes from Batman Begins, even if it's storyline is more akin to Batman's comics continuity.
After a troubled development, several delays and news of the show it's based on being canceled, the video game Young Justice: Legacy is finally out today.
The game, which was written in conjunction with the show's producers and fills in the gap between Young Justice's first and second seasons on Cartoon Network, explains why some of the characters changed rather drastically. It's likely the last fans will be seeing of these versions of the characters, barring another tie-in comic series (the initial series, which ran for 25 issues, ended in February) or something similar. Check out a handful of screenshots after the jump.
The only thing that can match the excitement of getting Microsoft's new Xbox One console is the dread of what a tremendous pain it will be to get one in time for the holidays. Waiting for hours in a line to get your hands on the latest video game console, only to eventually be told there aren't enough for even half the people waiting with you, is just flat out not a good time.
So we've decided to do what we can to help at least one of you avoid the stress: ComicsAlliance is teaming up with ArcadeSushi, ScreenCrush and The BoomBox to giveaway an Xbox One Console -- Day One edition.
Walk into any of the hundreds of comic shops around the country and it won't be long before you hear a classic "Who would win in a fight, X or Y?" debate. The folks at Super Power Beat Down and Bat In the Sun are asking the same questions, but they're backing it up with research and simulations.
Take a look at the video below, which determines whether Mortal Kombat's Scorpion or the White Ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers would emerge victorious from a throwdown. The White Ranger is already starting out with an advantage: Jason David Frank himself is arguing for the character he played. Scorpion only gets Matthew Mercer, the voice actor for Stryker in the latest Mortal Kombat game. In the video, White ranger is played by Alvin Hsing, while Scoprion is played by Peter Jang. See the clash of titans play out after the cut.
For fans who can't wait until November 8 to see Thor chuck his mystical mallet at bad guys spanning the nine realms in theaters, Gameloft's Thor: The Dark World - The Official Game may just sate the ol' Midgardian appetite for Mjolnir-izing. Now available for free on iOS and Android devices, the new action title approximates the events of the Thor: The Dark World movie in a battle against Malekith the Dark Elf and his evil forces, who are seemingly *snort* Hel-bent on destroying every brach of Yggdrasil.
In the world of video games, it's been a pretty big year for sequels. Of course, it's kind of always a pretty big year for sequels, but in the past few months alone, we've gotten Grand Theft Auto V, Saints Row IV, Assassin's Creed: Stabbin' In The Pirate Times, a new Pokémon game, and more. For those of us who have a keen interest in seeing Batman punching people right smack in their big ol' stupid faces, however, there is one game that has been more anticipated than any other: Batman: Arkham Origins, the third installment of the series that began with 2009's Arkham Asylum.
Now, it's finally out, and the short version is that by and large, Arkham Origins is very good at what it does. It just doesn't do anything new.
The Walking Dead was one of the best video games of 2012, hands down, so it's with great anticipation that we reloaded Telltale Games' blog this afternoon to see what's coming down the pike for the game's second season.
From what we can tell, it won't disappoint. Be warned: The info below and the trailer for the game may include a few spoilers for those who haven't played the first game yet, namely in terms of which characters survive and which don't.
