I couldn't kill this damned orc in Shadow of Mordor

Our first hands-on session with Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor had me going up against some orc bodyguards to take out their boss, a war chief. If you recall from my preview, there was one orc that escaped me. His name? ...

Getting drawn into Scribblenauts Unmasked
by Dale North

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...

Take a look at Cyborg in Infinite Crisis

The latest character to join Infinite Crisis is Cyborg. Cyborg's abilities are detailed in this new trailer, and most of his attacks focus on him using projectile blasts with his arm cannon. Not much of a fan of Cyborg, but ...

Meow: Catwoman announced for Injustice: Gods Among Us

Well lick my paws and wipe my face! It's Catwoman. As you can see from the above videomeow, DC Comics' kitty girl, Catwoman, will be a playable character in upcoming fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us. You can also see that she's all about claws and scratching and pouncing. Nyan. She's crazy fast and not bad with a missile launcher. So yeah. Meow. What a purrrrrfect character for fans.

I never thought I'd want to play a DC superhero fighting game, but then again, I never thought I'd want to play another Mortal Kombat after the series' decline in the '00s. Once again, NetherRealm is changing my mind.

Injustice: Gods Among Us stands out for its bold twists on the genre, not its cast of DC characters. After getting my hands on the game, I was pleasantly surprised by how great it looks and plays. If you enjoyed NetherRealm's gnarly yet polished Mortal Kombat reboot, you will likely fall in love with Injustice's bombastic, violent combat.

LEGO hobbits! Why haven't we seen LEGO hobbits until now? 

An early look at LEGO The Lord of the Rings showed the full Fellowship in LEGO form, with all speaking using the movie voices. You haven't lived until you've experienced Gandalf's voice coming out of a little yellow bearded toy person. LOTR fans will flip when they see and hear Frodo, Sam and the others in block form too.

[Update: New screenshots added.]

Injustice: Gods Among Us is a fighting game that brings together the DC Universe characters for a beatdown festival that only world-class superheroes and villains could give us. Ed Boon himself showed it off to select press recently, and it was there where he said that he wanted to introduce new fighting game features that would move the genre forward.

He may have succeeded, and along with that created a virtual test ground to settle arguments that have been plaguing nerdkind for ages.
