Latest Humble Bundle has Batman and F.E.A.R.

Are people still annoyed that Humble Bundle has expanded its scope to feature AAA games? I found the practice a little weird at first, but hey, if it means steep discounts on substantial games and the charity component is in ...

Review: Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure photo
Review: Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure
by Ian Bonds

When they announced that the next Scribblenauts game would include characters and settings from the DC Comics Universe, I was excited. That's a lot of history to pull from, and with Scribblenauts' reputation of including tons of things you wouldn't expect, I was hopeful we'd see more than just Superman, Batman, and a few of the Justice League.

What I got was so much more than I expected, and yet, was still a bit lacking.

Scribblenauts Unmasked kind of snuck up on me

I completely forgot that Scribblenauts Unmasked was launching this week, as it crept up on me on this particularly quiet week. For those who aren't aware, Unmasked is a joint venture with DC Comics, and features a full-blown...

I took a break from the crowded show floor of San Diego Comic-Con to relax for a bit with the latest build of 5th Cell's upcoming game, Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure. Scribblenauts has always been one of those games that's easy to pick up but hard to break away from, but the new superhero twist in this latest game gives us even more to get lost in.

Scribblenauts Unmasked hits September 24, has Supermen

I have an idea. Let's take a game about wonder and creativity and advertise it using the most bland and boring superhero, Superman. Probably because he just had a big movie release. Even his name begs for an ounce of characte...

The next Scribblenauts is set in the DC Comics universe  photo
The next Scribblenauts is set in the DC Comics universe
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Maxwell and Lily's next Scribblenauts adventure sees the pair venturing into the DC Comics universe through the power of their magic notebook. The siblings love comics, and the whole reason they even want to enter DC's universe is to see who's better between Batman and Superman. The Scribblenauts heroes quickly learn that there's a far greater issue at hand and they'll need to help all the DC's heroes out in this new adventure. 

While this is all very heavily focused on the DC universe, the same Scribblenauts mechanics and gameplay systems are in place. DC Comics fans are especially going to like this one as it's not just The New 52 characters featured in Unmasked. This is a giant sandbox featuring over 2,000 DC characters, vehicles, locations, and more that ranges back to even obscure stuff from 1976.

Review: Scribblenauts Unlimited
by Jim Sterling

The problem with a game like Scribblenauts is that the promise of boundless freedom comes with strict boundaries. A game that promises you can conjure any item in existence to solve puzzles can be broken pretty simply in a world without rules, since electronic ninjas could theoretically solve any and all problems. Thus, rules are contrived, fences erected, and you find yourself not quite free as the bird you just created out of thin air. 

Not to mention, a game that tries to do so much has to cut corners somewhere to fit it all in. So it is that you end up with no distinction between a dragon and a wyvern, as items share models and traits, and ultimately you find that the limitless potential just got a hell of lot more limited in the journey from premise to practice. 

Scribblenauts Unlimited even promises infinite freedom in its name. As you might have already guessed, that promise is not fulfilled ... and perhaps even falls shorter than previous games in the series.

Mega64: Selling ONE PERSON on Scribblenauts Unlimited

Judging from the opening, it looked like Shawn somehow already owned Scribblenauts Unlimited on 3DS, so 5th Cell co-founder and Scribblenauts creator Jeremiah Slaczka was just wasting his time. Either way, it's always fun to...

FREE: Scribblenauts REMIX is Starbucks' Pick of the Week
by Dale North

Want a free download of 5TH Cell's Scribblenauts REMIX for your iOS device? Head to Starbucks and pick up one of the free promo cards there to download this week's Pick of the Week. Scribblenauts REMIX is normally $5, so maybe you could that that money into one of the bomb-ass Pumpkin Spice Latte drinks. And you might as well go Venti (470 calories) on that sh*t.

Above and in our gallery you'll see the 5TH Cell team at Starbucks with Rooster Hats on to celebrate Scribblenauts REMIX being the Pick of the Week.
