‘The Wolf Among Us’ Episode 3 Trailer Promises Even More Wolf-y Intrigue [Video]

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!

Toy Review: ‘Street Fighter II’ G.I. Joe Action Figures From 1993 [Video]

Street Fighter II G.I. Joe Review Video

Every weekend here at CA we’re cracking open the latest and/or just greatest decades old action figures around to see what sets them apart from the articulated plastic pack. This week we’re unboxing two Street Fighter II G.I. Joe action figures from 1993 that I found at a convention a year ago for less than $10 and totally forgot about in my closet... until today. Do these bizarre relics from video game action figure past still hold up? Or are they mere novelties? Or are they totally both? Find out in our full review of 3.75" tall Guile and Blanka.

The Bad Guy In ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ Is Original Character ‘The Arkham Knight’ — Totally Not Hush

Arkham Knight Demo screenshot

So remember a few weeks ago when it looked like Rocksteady was hinting at Hush being the main villain of the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight video game? Well, it looks like we may have been a little hasty to rush to judgment on that. In a presentation by Rocksteady developer Dax Ginn that involved a demo of the game, a new foe was revealed as the source of what we can safely assume will be a lot of trouble for everyone's favorite Caped Crusader, and his name is, quite literally, Arkham Knight.

According to Rocksteady, this is an entirely new character created solely for the game -- a guy who bears a striking resemblance to Batman, but with the crucial difference of using guns. And that doesn't sound like Hush at all.

Archie Announces New ‘Mega Man X’ Crossover, The Sensational Comics Event Of 20XX [Preview]

Mega Man: Dawn of X Promo Art

Here at ComicsAlliance, we're big fans of Archie's Mega Man series, but ever since the series started, we've been wondering when -- not if, but when -- they were going to get around to introducing Mega Man's far future counterpart, Mega Man X. It's been hinted at in the series, both in the main storyline and in backup stories, but now, we know for sure that the two video game heroes of different eras are going to meet.

In this summer's Mega Man #37, the two robot-fightin' robots are going to team up in "Dawn of X," a four-part crossover where 8-bit and 16-bit collide, courtesy of Ian Flynn, Jamal Peppers, Gary Martin, John Workman and Matt Herms. Check out some early art from the story below!

Between Sharknife, Seedless and a host of other comics, artist Corey Lewis has expressed his love for a multitude of his favorite music, anime, manga, tokusatsu shows and -- perhaps especially -- video games. This coming weekend at Emerald City Comicon 2014, Lewis will take his affection for a specific gaming icon to the next level with the release of Arem, a one-shot comic that serves as something of a loveletter to the Metroid series of video games starring the cosmic armored bounty hunter Samus Aran.

The Comics Alliance Collection: Cool Stuff We (And You) Got This Week

Screen-Shot-2014-03-21-at-5.25.52-PM

The ComicsAlliance staff is a diverse lineup writers, editors, artists, photographers and designers, but before we’re any of those things we’re simply fans. Appreciators. Collectors. Almost every day we share with each other via Instagram all the great books, toys, artwork, apparel, and other beautiful and/or inescapably cool objects we collect almost ceaselessly in comics stores, at conventions, and from all kinds of sources all over North America (and sometimes beyond). Displaying (i.e. showing off) some rad swag typically inspires everyone to one-up their pop-archeologist game in the never ending quest to find awesome stuff, and simply posting the week’s new comics usually causes someone to discover a new title or artist, which in turn inspires a whole new line of excavation.

In the past we’ve published photos of our “con hauls” here on CA and the resulting discussion with readers — i.e. collector kudos — has always been fun, so with the ComicsAlliance Collection we’re going to do it every week. But more importantly, we want to see your collection too. Show us new additions to your collections by using the hashtag #CAcollection on Instagram or tag us @ComicsAlliance and we’ll embed the best stuff alongside our own recent acquisitions.

‘One Piece’ And ‘Dragon Ball Z’ Throw Down In Real Life For The Best Video Game Ad Ever

Goku vs. Monkey D. Luffy art installation for J-Stars Victory Vs.

Apologies to anyone in marketing who might be reading this, but video game ads don't usually do much to get me excited. I think the last one that really made an impact was the one for Saints Row IV where they misspelled the name of the game and then went back to correct it all while blaring dubstep, and showing you explosions, but even that wasn't exactly "memorable," you know?

Now imagine that you're heading over to the department store, thinking about picking up a new video game, and you round the corner to see Goku from Dragon Ball Z and Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece in the middle of a life-sized brawl that has shattered the street, snapped a lamppost and flipped a car. Well, if you're heading to the Shibuya Parco store in Tokyo, that's exactly what you'll see, as an awesome promo for the upcoming J-Stars Victory Vs. And it is awesome.
