It's been long expected that Marvel and Star Wars characters would make their way to Disney Infinity and we're finally getting a tease for the former property. Captain America -- or his iconic shield, at least -- is all but ...

Batman: Arkham Knight announcement trailer photo
Batman: Arkham Knight announcement trailer
by Alessandro Fillari



After months of leaks, we finally saw the reveal of Batman: Arkham Knight as the upcoming cover story for this month's Game Informer. As the final installment in the Arkham series, The Dark Knight faces his toughest challenge yet as the Scarecrow has taken over Gotham City and joined forces with Two-Face, Harley Quinn, and other villains to take out Batman.

In addition to the reveal, we also have a brand new CG trailer setting up the events of the game. As a next-gen only release, it's looking like Rocksteady is going all out with this one. I can't wait to hear more from this title, which is expected to release later this year.

The Wolf Among Us accolades trailer controls the crowd

While The Wolf Among Us: Smoke and Mirrors may already be out, Telltale slapped together a trailer to brag about some of the nice things that some nice people said about it. There's nothing new here with regard to information about the continuation of the series, but for those that just want another chunk of The Wolf Among Us in their life, this should do for the time being.

Review: The Wolf Among Us: Smoke and Mirrors
by Chris Carter

Bigby the Wolf has the weight of the world on his shoulders. He's just stumbled upon two murders, everyone is judging him based on his past, and all of it is starting to take its toll. In the second episode of Wolf Among Us, Telltale does an amazing job of unloading some of that burden off to the player.

Whereas Faith showed us Bigby from afar, we've now become him in Smoke and Mirrors. This is going to be one wild ride that even Toad might not be able to handle.

Archie Comics has been busy. In addition to hosting two Sonic comic lines, a Mega Man series, and a crossover event between the three, they've also added "backup" stories to Mega Man #34-35, which feature fan favorites Mega Man X and Zero.

But the blue and red duo are backups no more, as Archie has officially confirmed to Destructoid that they will be joining Mega Man in a full four-part storyline titled "Dawn of X" starting from issue #37. We have the full scoop by way of an interview with Archie's Ian Flynn and Paul Kaminski, as well as an exclusive look at the covers of the first issue in the gallery below!

Atomic Poison Ivy is basically a plant spider thing

Atomic Wonder Woman? Badass. Atomic Green Lantern? Awesome. Atomic Poison Ivy? Umm. Up until now the Atomic versions of DC heroes you'll be able to play as in the Infinite Crisis MOBA have been pretty great. So the reveal of Atomic Poison Ivy is kind of a bummer. Mostly because she looks ridiculous walking around with her spider-like plant legs.
