Kevin Conroy Returns For ‘Batman: Assault On Arkham’ Animated Feature Based On the Video Game Universe [Video]

Batman: Assault On Arkham

So hey, have you heard about these Arkham games starring Batman? It seems they are pretty popular, friends -- so popular, in fact, that in addition to there being four of them in the video game series, we are now getting a full-length animated movie based on the Arkham Games in which Kevin Conroy reprises his role as Batman. It's called Batman: Assault on Arkham and will see Batman take on the Joker and his plot to detonate a dirty bomb in Gotham City.

Unlike the games, though, Batman won't be a solo act in this mission, as he's joined by Task Force X, better known to comic book fans as the Suicide Squad.

New ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ Screenshots Deliver More Oracle, Commissioner Gordon, And Batmobile Launching

Batman: Arkham Knight screenshot

As Batman: Arkham Knight, the next entry in the popular video game franchise about Batman beating the criminally insane into submission in asylums of increasingly improbable sizes and complexity, draws nearer, we're starting to get to the point where we're getting a steady stream of information about the game. Today, with the release of a new set of screenshots, we got some of the most interesting news of all.

According to the latest screens, after appearances as a voice in a headset in the past three games, Barbara Gordon will finally be appearing as Oracle. That's big news for fans fans, but to be honest, that stuff about the Batmobile shooting you out of the roof like James Bond's ejector seat will probably have a bigger impact on gameplay.

Check Out The First Half-Hour Of The New ‘Arkham Origins’ DLC, ‘Cold, Cold Heart’ [Video]

Batman Arkham Origins Cold Cold Heart DLC

Remember how a big chunk of the game map was frozen and icy in Arkham City? The new DLC for Batman: Arkham Origins"Cold, Cold Heart" extends that idea a bit, with the ice seemingly extending throughout the city as Penguin and Mr. Freeze terrorize the landscape on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC (but not the Wii) on April 22.

A leaked video reveals the first half hour of the DLC, the first Arkham DLC that actually adds single-player, storyline-driven gameplay instead of challenge packs and multiplayer maps. Much of it takes place in Wayne Manor as Bruce Wayne charges to the Batcave to pick up his batsuit. (Another toyetic iceproof costume shows up later.)

‘The Wolf Among Us’ Episode 3, ‘A Crooked Mile,’ Honors A Different Genre [Review]

The Wolf Among Us A Crooked Mile Review
Telltale Games

The first two episodes of Telltale Games' Fables prequel, The Wolf Among Us, had clearly served as homage to a very particular genre, neon noir. The third episode, "A Crooked Mile," which hit Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC and iOS this week, keeps the neon but seems to drop the noir.

What the developers and writers offer up instead is a bloodier, more aggressive story this time around. It feels pretty strongly like the a hat-tip to the gun-driven revenge and exploitation films of the 1970s, particularly by the end, and it gives the game a sense of welcome unpredictability.

Oni Press/Double Fine

Over the past few years Zac Gorman has made a name for himself paying tribute to his favorite video games with his comic Magical Game Time. This October the cartoonist will be spreading that same magic into his first graphic novel, Costume Quest: Invasion of the Candy Snatchers, a companion narrative to Double Fine's 2010 Costume Quest RPG. While Costume Quest followed a human kid and their friends as they battled candy-stealing monsters called Grubbins to recover their kidnapped sibling from another dimension, Invasion of the Candy Snatchers will flip the script and see what the non-evil Grubbin Klem got up to that Halloween. CA got in touch with Gorman to learn more about his first official video game project and how he's taken to working on his first longer form comic.

Marvel Superheroes Coming To ‘Disney Infinity’ In 2.0 Edition [Video]

Disney Infinity 2 teaser

I don't think I'm blowing anyone's mind here, but I'm pretty sure that if there's one thing superhero fans love, it's collecting tiny little plastic versions of their favorite characters. It is a universal truth of fandom, and apparently, the folks over at Disney Interactive Studios have finally realized this, and they're capitalizing by introducing Marvel superheroes into Disney Infinity 2.0, the seeming sequel to their smash hit video game that uses collectible figurines to unlock maps and other content.

As revealed in the new teaser trailer, Captain America (or at least his Mighty Shield) is leading the charge. Check it out below!

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Video Game ‘Kingpin’ Trailer Introduces Tons Of Non-Film Foes [Video]

Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game trailer

The release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is just around the corner, and if there's one thing we know about that movie, it's that there are a lot of villains involved. Electro, the Rhino, the Green Goblin, some weird-ass dancing baby -- they're all showing up to give the web-slinger some problems. But is that really enough bad guys?

The producers of the video game tie-in certainly don't think so. As revealed in the latest trailer for the upcoming Activision title, Spider-Man's going to be throwing webs and flying headscissors takedowns at all those foes, plus the Black Cat, Kraven the Hunter and the Kingpin. And as an added bonus, Activision and Beenox have made the Kingpin hilariously huge. Check out the trailer below!

Fables The Wolf Among Us 3 Trailer
Telltale Games

So far, the Telltale Games Fables prequel game, The Wolf Among Us has delivered on its promise of an atmospheric, intrigue-filled noir set in Fabletown, U.S.A.

The trailer for the third of the game's episodes, titled "A Crooked Mile," looks like that trend will continue with more mysteries, intense interrogations, and characters saying portentous, vague things at every turn. Oh, and Bigby Wolf continues to take (and dish out) a good many beatings along the way. Check out the trailer (which includes spoilers for the previous two episodes) after the jump!

Google Maps Unleashes Pokemon To Create The Most Depressing (And Pretty Awesome) April Fools’ Prank Ever

Google Maps Pokémon Challenge

Folks, I have seen some cruel April Fools' Day pranks in my time. Heck, I just read through the last 15 years of Funky Winkerbean strips from April 1 a few minutes ago, so I thought I was immune to the pangs of disappointment, but no. No I am not. And I know that, because with their annual prank, Google has shown us a finer world and reminded us how far we have fallen.

Okay, so maybe I'm overreacting a little bit, but still! An April 1 update to Google Maps that adds Pokémon to international landmarks and allows you to catch them, learning to understand each other through the magic of friendship and battling? It is a glimpse of a world in which I want to live. Check out their video promoting the (pretty amazing) gag below!
