Not to be overshadowed by its big-console brother, the WB Games handheld prison-action game Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgateis showing off some of the trick it's got up its "Metroid-Vania" sleeve.
Among them: A lot of bad guys, including The Joker, The Penguin, Black Mask, Deadshot, and the just-revealed Solomon Grundy. Catwoman's there, too (and also in a new screen shot from the game). See if you can spot any more in the trailer after the cut.
As the only video game that we're likely to get in the forseeable future that includes Arm-Fall-Off-Boy and the KGBeast, Scribblenauts Unmaskedis one of my most anticipated releases of the year. Now, though, there's another incentive to get excited about it: When the game comes out this fall, it'll come with a digital comic by Josh Elder and Adam Archer about Batman, Superman and company duking it out with their evil opposites.
Check out the cover, screenshots from the game and more info below!
A new launch trailer from Activision and Red Fly Studios offers up a pretty good idea of the fully realized gameplay -- Arkham Asylum-style fighting with four player co-op, lots of weapon-based moves, and one really giant, two-headed mouser. Since it's not a direct tie-in to Nickelodeon's current CG series (or IDW's ongoing comic, for that matter), it bears a distinct visual style to boot. Check it out after the jump.
For comics readers, Katsuya Terada is probably best known for his work on Iron Man and Hellboy, but there's a pretty good chance you're already very familiar with his work, even if you don't know it. As a concept artist, Terada designed characters and settings for The Legend of Zelda, and his work is awesome.
Check out a few of the best designs below, including an adult Link and a, uh, very adult version of the Great Fairy!
As a followup to its debut trailer, Telltale Games has released a handful of new images from its new Fables prequel game, The Wolf Among Us. Two of the shots indicate lead character Bigby Wolf will be in a fightin' mood for much of the game, though the others prove he'll show his inquisitive side, too.
We've already gotten a look at one previously unnamed character appearing in Batman: Arkham Origins this week, but some new screenshots from the WB Games Montreal title show Firefly isn't the only surprise in store.
One of the shots depicts Batman getting ready to pummel some rabbit-masked thugs point pretty clearly to The Mad Hatter, who we actually saw in a previous image. Other images include Anarky and his thugs, much closer looks at Firefly, and a glimpse of a sword-wielding woman who looks a whole lot like she could be Katana.
Saints Row IV is probably the best thing that humanity has ever created.
It's important that we establish that up front, because up until earlier this week, I would've given that honor to its predecessor, Saints Row The Third. Now, though, we have set a new high mark for achievement in art, and it's mostly down to one thing: super-powers. In a time when we've got insanely fun games based on comics, like Arkham City or even the LEGO Batman games, I think it says a lot that this is the most fun I've ever had in a game where the main selling point was having powers and abilities far beyond mortal men -- probably because they're specifically geared towards blowing things up, in a game where doing that isn't just rewarded, it's the entire point.
I really loved LEGO Batman and the sequel that brought in the rest of the DC Universe, so I've been looking forward to their take on the Marvel superheroes since the game was announced. Now, as we draw ever closer to the game's release this fall, we're getting a few more details about the plot and story ofLEGO Marvel Super Heroes with a video that introduces you to the villains of the story. Dr. Doom, Hydra, Arnim Friggin' Zola, and, biggest and baddest of all, Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds.
Okay, yes, this is the least surprising surprise reveal in history (and one that's pretty easy to recreate with real-life LEGO sets just by wearing a purple hat and stomping around the house), but it's still pretty awesome. Check out the video and a few new screenshots below!
A new trailer for WB Games Montreal's Batman: Arkham Origins offers a reminder that the Dark Knight's got "eight assassins after head," and offers up a pretty good look at what he'll be dealing with. Big boss Black Mask, The Joker, Bane, Deathstroke, Copperhead, and the just-announced Firefly all make appearances. Not only that, but pair of cutscenes with Alfred and James Gordon (presumably before he was a commissioner... maybe lieutenant?) are featured, too.
The trailer also gives fans their first good listens to the new voices for Batman and The Joker -- Roger Craig Smith and Troy Baker -- who seem to be doing their best Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill impressions. See it all in motion after the jump.
Part of the hook of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City was that they put Batman in difficult environments, separate from a workable base of operations (though he did have a sort of mini-Batcave in Asylum).
It looks like WB Games Montreal's new Batman: Arkham Origins will change that up a bit. New screens show that the Batcave will be in the game, though it's not totally clear yet whether it'll be a playable environment or just available in cutscenes. Check out an early look at the Batcave and some high-kicking action after the cut.
