Rumor: Batman Arkham City prequel set in Silver Age

According to Variety, Rocksteady is working on a Batman: Arkham City prequel that's set in the Silver Age. It'll tell the story of how Batman first met The Joker, and will seemingly carry much of the 50s aesthetic with it, as opposed to the dark and modern take we've seen in previous games. 

As part of DC Comics' new plans to "monetize" its superheroes, the story will also involve Batman joining the Justice League of America. Expect cameos from Superman, The Flash, and Green Lantern as DC tries to get us excited for some inevitable movie project. 

I can't say the Silver Age holds too much appeal for me, but with Rocksteady kicking ass on the last two games, I'm definitely open to the idea.

Hyrule Warriors' play-as-Ganon mode looks broken and awesome

In the next and seemingly final piece of DLC for Hyrule Warriors, we'll be able to punch bosses in the face as the biggest boss of all, Ganon, in his own separate mode. I'm eager to let my anger out on the Imprisoned, that j...more
