Until many more people own Xbox Ones and PlayStation 4s, publishers will continue to put out remastered games, otherwise known as "safe bets." Even then, they'll probably continue. Here's another pair of 'em to start your wee... read

ESRB reveals why Batman: Arkham Knight was rated M


It...basically sounds the same as past Arkham games
Mar 09
Recently, we learned that the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight would be rated "M," a first for the series. Because of this I kind of assumed that the new game would be doing something different, but based on this ESRB desc... read

The upcoming, M-rated end to Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy has a lovely new trailer out today. And this one isn't polished, artsy CG the series is known for. Some well cut in-game footage, a view of the rogues gallery teaming ... read

The end of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, squeaked by with a PG-13, but it looks like Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy didn't have the same luck. Arkham Knight director Sefton Hill told IGN that the gam... read

Don’t let the name fool you -- this is by no means a Batman game. The Dark Knight may grace the box, but underneath its bat-enameled shell lies a Justice League game at heart. A menagerie of DC heroes and villains combi... read feature

This Batman: Arkham Knight trailer is disappointing


'Batmobile trailer,' I should say

Rocksteady's conclusion to the Arkham trilogy will happen a bit later than everyone expected, and as such, there's still more to learn about the game. That's no big surprise; we're still discovering easter eggs in Arkha... read

Final Fantasy director Tetsuya Nomura crafts an interesting take on Catwoman that looks like a Metal Gear villain


She looks like she belongs in a Metal Gear Solid game
Oct 10
A few months ago we saw the Batman Play Arts Kai figure crafted by Final Fantasy character designer/director Tetsuya Nomura. Well he's at it again, and this time he crafted a new Catwoman figure. All in all she looks like a mixture of Jehuty from Zone of the Enders, a boss from a Metal Gear Solid game, and the Alien from Alien. I guess it's better than being half man, half bear, half pig. read

Also, we are eight years old.
Monday is the worst day of the week, so Bill and I are coping with it by drinking blueberry smoothies and talking about wonderful things like superhero nonsense from Comic-Con, Mass Effect's exciting new (old) sharkmobile, Trine 2's awful poetry, Destiny's two unoriginal races, and True Detective, which Bill doesn't like, and therefore isn't allowed to have blueberry smoothies anymore. read feature

What do you do when you explore all available paths with a character, and end up with nowhere to go? You reboot it, of course! Is that the position that Batman's in? Mega64 thinks so. It took the unsolicited initiative and reinvented the Caped Crusader. Except now he has a raincoat instead of a cape. Also, he's a Puerto Rican guy now. read
