Brainiac is the big bad of LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham


Holy alliteration Batman
Aug 20
Brainiac loves to shrink things and put them on display -- it's what he does. So it's no surprise that the core narrative of LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is a sinister plot to shrink the Earth. The story will see heroes... 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

Death Scythe Batman

Square Enix has partnered WB and DC for a PlayArts Kai line of Batman toys designed by Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts director Tetsuya Nomura. Not a single zipper in sight.

Fight against a giant Scarecrow in Arkham Knight's exclusive PS4 DLC


The Scarecrow Nightmare Pack detailed
Jun 24
Scarecrow's reveal during the Sony E3 2014 press conference was a highlight. Woke me right up, it did. Batman: Arkham Knight was yet another one of those games to (annoyingly) have system-exclusive content -- in this specific... read

Mega64 gives Batman a much-needed makeover


Crime stops here
Jun 23
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

First impressions/hands-on
We gave you our impressions from the very first look at Batman: Arkham Knight back in March, but now we're back with a twist. That Batmobile we talked so much about? Yeah, it's great. Cruisin' around Gotham and blowing up sh*t is never going to be anything but great. But they were holding out on us: The Batmobile can transform into a freakin' tank! read feature
