Crossy Road is Frogger for a new generation

I'm not one to get into mobile gaming but every few months something comes along and enough friends and peers tweet about it that I feel compelled to join them, if only for a day. Crossy Road, a sort of isometric, voxel-y, ...

The Marvellous Miss Take is all about the burglary, baby

The Marvellous Miss Take is a good, Saturday morning carton style name for a thief, but in today's #content economy I think Miss Take is depriving herself of an even more lucrative scheme: the hot take. Just a thought f...

Need something free to pass the time? 0h h1 is sort of like binary sudoku

I have always been an unapologetic fan of Minesweeper. I have been playing it for longer than any other single game, and I will be playing it as long as I can imagine. It never changes in any fundamental way, but it always wo...

Lose your head, keep your cool with bizarre Smash Bros. glitch

Elite fighting game competitors have to be able to perform even under the wackiest of circumstances. Fox lose his head? King Dedede's eyes look like he's taken enough psychedelic drugs for a lifetime? Better nail that dash-d...

Irrational's hiring again almost a year after 'winding down'

In February, Ken Levine (bio)shocked the gaming world by announcing that Irrational Games was shutting down. Well, sort of. The plan was to lay off the majority of the staff, and continue forward as a small group dedicated to...

Review: Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth
by Kyle MacGregor

Some concoctions will leave you feeling sick to your stomach. You need look no further than Yukiko Amagi's culinary misadventures for proof of that. Other pairings seem to work far better than they probably should, like Atlus RPG fusion Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth.

The title blends two of the studio's prized franchises, Persona and Etrian Odyssey, unifying disparate types of role-playing games into a cohesive and complementary experience.

Want to see new footage of Batman: Arkham Knight? photo
Want to see new footage of Batman: Arkham Knight?
by Alessandro Fillari



After news of the delay back in September, the folks at WB Games and Rocksteady have kept all things Batman: Arkham Knight close to the vest. Thankfully, they figured we could use another appetizer after their showing at E3, and this new gameplay footage makes the wait even harder to bare.

In the video, we get to see the early portions of the game where Batman must rescue hostages from an Ace Chemicals factory. With his Batmobile in tow, he easily breaks in and gets to work on dispensing justice, but he soon learns that the Arkham Knight (voiced by Troy Baker, of course) is calling the shots and will prove to be a worthy adversary.

It's best to go into this without too much description. The gameplay for the Batmobile looks very impressive and I'm glad we finally got a Batman game that does the vehicle justice.
