There's a great old gag from The Simpsons in which Homer, who's trying out to be a member of the secret society the Stonecutters, is going through an initiation ceremony that involves him getting hit in the butt with paddles over and over. The members of the group keep doing the same thing to him, but they call it different names, like "Crossing the Desert" and "The Unblinking Eye."
Batman: Arkham Origins is set for a release later this month, leaving us all wondering just what we're going to be doing when we can't sit around on the couch playing it on our favorite console. Sure, there's a handheld game, but what about situations like work, funerals or Frenching where using a Nintendo 3DS or PSP is frowned upon?
Fortunately, Netherrealm studios has risen to the challenge with the Arkham Origins mobile game for iOS devices, where you can pretend to be texting while tapping to make Batman punch the ever-living heck out of Deadshot, Copperhead and other assassins. Check out the release trailer and more info below!
By now most fans have seen their share of Injustice: Gods Among Us clashes, but far less footage of the game's single player campaigns that go beyond mere mortal kcombat. NetherRealm's new DC fighting game will task players with all sorts of side missions under the familiar "S.T.A.R. Labs" banner, though, putting them in control of heroes, villains, and an assortment of noncombatants in the game as they flesh out the post-deadLoisatomicbombpocalypse DCU. IGN took some of the missions for a spin alongside I:GAU Senior Producer Adam Urbano, showcasing Catwoman's kitty Isis sneaking through security systems, Black Adam blasting asteroids, a potential playable Martian Manhunter tease, Aquaman convincing sharks not to eat him, and more. Though these side missions won't be a part of the game's playable demo launching on April 2 and 3 on PSN and XBL, it's still a good look at what players can expect when the full game launches on April 16. You can check it out after the cut.
By now many fans have read DC's Injustice: Gods Among Us prequel comic and have a basic understanding of the character motivations in NetherRealm's upcoming post-apocalyptic fighting game that pits heroes and villains against... villain-y heroes and heroic-ish villains? It's a turbulent elseworld where up is down and down is up, with two characte
With the Injustice: Gods Among Us Battle Arena social media campaign rolling out in-game fighting footage and associated character reveals it's easy to lose sight of one of the most important facts associated with the DC Comics fighting game: Lex Luthor is a huge jerk. A new trailer for one of the upcoming game's Collector's Edition offerings (which includes "New 52" costume skins for Bat
The weekly Injustice: Gods Among Us Battle Arena Weekly Match-Up videos usually serve as straightforward community-engagement pieces, but this time around there was a fairly substantial reveal: Sinestro and Hawkgirl will be playable characters in the upcoming NetherRealm fighting game. Considering the game's plot seems to revolve around a very Earthly kind of civil war between different factions of heroes and villai
Not long after the announcement that DC Collectibles would be bringing select combatants from NetherRealm Studios' upcoming Injustice: Gods Among Us fighting game with the reveal of a 3.75" Deathstroke vs. Green Arrow two-pack, online retailer Big Bad Toy Store has posted images of the line's second o
Following in the action figure footsteps of Batman: Arkham City, it looks like the next big DC Comics video game, Injustice: Gods Among Us will be receiving toys from not just Mattel, but also DC Collectibles. While Mattel's focus in 2013 is on 5-6" Superman and Batman figures, so far, DCC will avoid doubling-up (at least initially) with the release
Depending on how virtuous you like your DC heroes, NetherRealm's upcoming Injustice: Gods Among Us fighting game either looks like a total blast or a concept bordering on sacrilege, as demonstrated by how polarizing Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe was back in 2008.
