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.
Though there's been many incarnations of Mega Man over the years, Capcom's Blue Bomber will always be known for his 8-bit debut. With this in mind, Japanese toymaker Kawada are releasing two Mega Man (or, in this case, "Rockman," as he's known in his country of origin) brick sets that let fans build appropriately blocky versions of their favorite video game hero, plus his robot master foe Cut Man.
With Warner Bros Interactive releasing the details of the Batman: Arkham Origins Collected Editions earlier today, fans of the video game franchises are understandably excited. But at $119.99, it's double the price of the regular game. It's not surprising, given the crazy amount of stuff in the set, but it's still a bit steep. So we decided we'd do our share to help, and we're teaming up with Arcade Sushi to give away a free XBox 360 version of the set.
Now, there's a new one-minute trailer and...we still don't know a lot. But we know the game will share a cel-shaded look similar to Telltale's smash-hit Walking Dead game, that it'll be a game of "choice and consequence" also similar to The Walking Dead, and that the first episode will be called "Faith." Oh, and Bigby falls out of a window during a fight. Hit the jump for the full trailer.
I try to be responsible with my video game purchases, but let's be honest: the key word there is "try." As much as I tend to wait for a price drop for a lot of things, the fact that there's a miniature Dubstep Gun and a rotating Saints Row IV display case on their way to my house at this very moment is irrefutable evidence that I'm a sucker for a good Collector's Edition -- and for the upcoming release of Batman: Arkham Origins, WB Games has gone all out in trying to to get $119.00 out of me. How? Nothing much. Just some posters, art books, a light-up statue. You know, the usual.
Oh, and also Purple Gloves Batman and a documentary narrated by f**king Dracula.
Over the past couple years, we've actually seen quitea bit of what THQ Australia's Skrull-filled Avengers video game would have looked like if it hadn't been canceled. Much of that art was of big, bulky Skrulls with superhero powers, but that apparently was only going to be one aspect of the game's bad guys.
Artist James Brouwer posted a set of images of some of his concept art to his blog a while back, and its Skrulls look quite a bit sleeker. There's also a lot more attention paid to Skrulls shifting into female forms. Check out what could have been after the jump, along with a video of the game that never was.
A few weeks back, we covered the announcement of Archie: Betty or Veronica, a new mobile game for iOS in which everyone's favorite crosshatch-haired teen was tasked with rebuilding his hometown, piece by piece and tap by tap. Last week, the game was finally released, and now, I've had some time to play around with it.
The verdict? It's definitely one of those mobile games where you send people off to do tasks for hours on end and then come back later when it's done unless you want to pay to speed things up... but it's also one that does a pretty great job of capturing what's great about Archie Comics.
We knew the heroes and villains of DC Universe Online would be encountering the seven-deadly-sins-inspired spawn of Raven's evil dad in the upcoming "Sons of Trigon" DLC as they allied with either Wonder Woman or Circe in a nightmare version of Gotham City, but what wasn't exactly clear was what these children (or at least their footsoldiers) would look like. Turns out they have their father's eyes.
As we all know, the world of Pokémon is 100% scientifically accurate in all ways, particularly in the highly educational way that it demonstrates biological evolution. It's important for kids today to realize that, over time -- say, two or three hours of fighting electric spiders -- a species can change an adapt and grow an even larger flower on its back that can shoot out laser beams. It's important, then, that the upcoming Pokémon X and Y include the latest scientific discovery: a magic rock that can cause your Pokémon to evolve into an Ultimate Final Form while in battle.
Check out footage of this incredible discovery below!
DC Universe Online is going to get demonic this fall when Wonder Woman squares off against Circe in a Trigon-takes-all battle for the fate of the DCU... that just so happens to take place in a wasteland version of Gotham City.
