Adam West is still the best Batman and will hopefully prove it in LEGO Batman 3

The official LEGO Batman Twitter account posted an image of a Lego Adam West this week (seen above), which hopefully means we'll see a whole lot more of him in the upcoming LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. Adam West is also goin...

Preorder Lego Batman 3 anywhere but Best Buy for a physical reward

Following the abhorrent trend of announcing different preorder bonuses across different retailers is Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, which is shipping with six different doodads depending on where you go. Fortunately, it's not ...

Batman: Arkham Origins Complete Edition outed by Amazon

A listing for Batman: Arkham Origins: The Complete Edition has been outed by Amazon Germany. You are all shocked, just shocked, that Warner Bros. is planning to re-release the last Batman game with all the downloadable conten...

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

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...

Microsoft Store lists Batman: Arkham Knight for February

[Update: It seems that they've changed the date listing to read "Not announced" since this morning. Tease.]  We found out that Batman: Arkham Knight was delayed right before E3, and last week we learned that the wait mig...

Dying Light is less about zombies and more about movement photo
Dying Light is less about zombies and more about movement
by Brett Makedonski

What can be done freshen up the zombie genre at this point? Videogames, television shows, movies, comics -- virtually every pop culture medium's been infested by the craze, long ago hitting a saturation (and then oversaturation) point. So, how does a developer like Techland, who's most well-known recently for its zombie games, take the concept and still manage to make it its own?

Techland's creating a game about zombies, that isn't really about zombies. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, that's what it's doing with Dying Light. And who knows -- maybe that's the take on the undead genre that'll liven it up a bit.

Arkham Knight may not be delayed as long as we think

We've known that Batman: Arkham Knight has been delayed into 2015, but we haven't had a time frame to hinge our expectations on. Anyone eagerly anticipating the game might be pleased to find out that there's a chance we ...

I made someone's nuts explode in Mortal Kombat X

I've always felt like the videogame industry doesn't feel right without a Mortal Kombat. So many games are always striving to be these serious affairs, and it takes something like Mortal Kombat to remind people that oh right,...

Video: Mortal Kombat X is vile in all the right ways

Mortal Kombat 9 was a damn good fighting game, and a damn good game in general. According to Max and Bill, next year's Mortal Kombat X is shaping up to be more of that. Building on the foundation of MK9 and Injustice: Gods ...

New Shadow of Mordor trailer moves like a ghost, fights like a devil

We spend so much of our lives working. When I die, if there's some sort of afterlife, I want to just chill out. Make it look like a never-ending Corona commercial or something. Doesn't that sound nice? That's not a position ...

Warrior needs food badly

"Warrior needs food... badly!" That's what this little button that hit my office today says. The letter with it says that Gauntlet will be at Warner Bros. booth during E3 next week, providing co-op play for attendees. It also says that there will be a Gauntlet food truck outside the Los Angeles convention center to revive us with free turkey legs!

Box art post! Scorpion graces the cover of Mortal Kombat X

Here we are again. Another cover art post, this one for Mortal Kombat X. Look at these words I've typed when you're only here to check out a picture. You just want to see Scorpion staring off like a total badass, and I'm...

Dying Light wants to make a murderer out of you

Everything that we've seen of Dying Light thus far has looked neat, but kind of devoid of personality. It's just seemed like another zombie game with attractive running mechanics. This trailer bucks that trend and adds a bit of charisma. It also adds blood. Lots and lots of blood -- especially after the sun goes down.

Equip this Gauntlet trailer to gear up for battle

Ready to play Gauntlet? No, you haven't time-traveled to the 80's, and you don't need a pocket full of loose change. You just need a PC and $20. In preparation for E3, Arrowhead put out this trailer for its remake of Gauntle...

Ed Boon reveals Mortal Kombat X photo
Ed Boon reveals Mortal Kombat X
by Chris Carter

[Update: Check out the official trailer above! Also, the platforms listed below are confirmed.]

After weeks of teasing, Ed Boon took to Twitter today to reveal Mortal Kombat X, the next chapter of the Mortal Kombat series.

Not a whole lot is known about the game right now other than the fact that it exists, and that it will hit the PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One platforms according to various rumored retail listings. We can likely expect some news soon though, leading up to and including E3!

Mortal Kombat X will drop in 2015.
