If you're not a super mega-nerd, you may not be aware that E3 is going on right now, but I can assure you that the rest of us are riveted by the news about this year's upcoming video games. There are a lot of announcements coming out, from new consoles to new Pokémon, but for us, some of the most interesting stuff has to do with the upcoming Batman games, Batman: Arkham Origins and Batman City Origins: Blackgate.
It's safe to say by now that Batman: Arkham City is widely considered to be one of the best comic book-based video games ever created. The game's been available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC since late 2011, but has yet to appear on a Nintendo console. That's

More info and a new trailer for The Avengers: Battle For Earth motion game came to light yesterday during Ubisoft's E3 conference. Though its vague fall release date has yet to be specified, Ubisoft specified that players will be able to adventure through Marvel's Secret Invasion comic book storyline on in addition to the Xbox 360 Kinect: Nintendo's upcoming Wii U.

We were pretty impressed with Sega's prologue trailer for its PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Captain America: Super Soldier last week, but what of the Captain America: The First Avenger movie tie-in's other versions on the Wii and DS? Over the course of E3 Sega dropped a number of new screen shots from Captain America: Super Soldier, which give potential players some cool glimpses of the adventure game. The most interesting shot? Probably the seeing Cap in front of a portrait of a very comics-looking Baron Zemo. See what you think of the new screens after the jump.We already k
E3's provided us with a look at plenty of comic book videogames this week, but considering all the buzz around X-Men: First Class, it's a little surprising it took until yesterday to see fresh game footage of Marvel's merry mutants. The new
