The darkest bright
The upcoming, M-rated end to Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy has a lovely new trailer out today. And this one isn't polished, artsy CG the series is known for. Some well cut in-game footage, a view of the rogues gallery teaming ...
For, you know, Mature
The end of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, squeaked by with a PG-13, but it looks like Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy didn't have the same luck. Arkham Knight director Sefton Hill told IGN that the gam...
Oh right, it's 2015
It felt like ages ago when we last heard about Mortal Kombat X, but now that the title inches closer to release, pre-order deals are showing up (along with a handful of other AAAs).
Digital retailer GMG's VIP deals return thi...
Don’t let the name fool you -- this is by no means a Batman game. The Dark Knight may grace the box, but underneath its bat-enameled shell lies a Justice League game at heart. A menagerie of DC heroes and villains combi...
After the announcement for the Suicide Squad film with a stacked cast, Warner Bros. Interactive is spilling the beans for the tie-in DLC for LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. Only, they're not actually referred to using...
'Batmobile trailer,' I should say
The first Ace Chemicals Infiltration video for Batman: Arkham Knight rekindled my excitement and, looking over your comments, I was far from alone in that regard. But this? Come on now.
It's almost entirely scripted footage ...
Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
After news of the delay back in September, the folks at WB Games and Rocksteady have kept all things Batman: Arkham Knight close to the vest. Thankfully, they figured we could use another appetizer after their showing at E3, ...
And that'd be A-Okay with everyone
Rocksteady's conclusion to the Arkham trilogy will happen a bit later than everyone expected, and as such, there's still more to learn about the game. That's no big surprise; we're still discovering easter eggs in Arkha...
Robin still looks and acts ridiculous
Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is available now, for nearly every console imaginable, real and otherwise. It's probably available for the Imagination Station 3000, but supplies are limited. The launch trailer above doesn't rea...
Not so clueless now
Conan O'Brien, the famed late-night talk show host and self-professed clueless gamer, will be reversing roles of sorts for his part in LEGO Batman 3. Instead of being confounded by videogames, he's going to be playing himsel...
She looks like she belongs in a Metal Gear Solid game
A few months ago we saw the Batman Play Arts Kai figure crafted by Final Fantasy character designer/director Tetsuya Nomura. Well he's at it again, and this time he crafted a new Catwoman figure.
All in all she looks like a mixture of Jehuty from Zone of the Enders, a boss from a Metal Gear Solid game, and the Alien from Alien. I guess it's better than being half man, half bear, half pig.
'Only on PS4'
When next July hits, Arkham Knight will hit the Japanese market, but as a PS4 exclusive in that region. According to Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Japan, the game will not be launching on other platforms. If you live in Jap...
LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham will drop in November, and alongside of it, a season pass. This is the first ever season pass for a LEGO game, and will run you $14.99 for six total add-ons. The pass will launch on ever...
Special editions detailed
While we'll have plenty to keep us busy later this year, particularly next month, a bunch of the games that are most testing my patience aren't releasing until 2015. Batman: Arkham Knight is one of them. Today, Warner Bros. a...
Let's put aside our differences
Smack dab in the middle of the release season for the year's biggest games comes the largest Lego title to date. Warner Bros. sent along word today that LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham will release on November 11&...
Holy alliteration Batman
Brainiac loves to shrink things and put them on display -- it's what he does. So it's no surprise that the core narrative of LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is a sinister plot to shrink the Earth. The story will see heroes...
Batman still going strong even after all these years
GameStop is celebrating Batman's 75th year with several events at GameStop Expo 2014. Players can get hands-on early access to LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham by TT Games, for one, and Arkham Knight fans will be able to see and ...
Also, we are eight years old.
Monday is the worst day of the week, so Bill and I are coping with it by drinking blueberry smoothies and talking about wonderful things like superhero nonsense from Comic-Con, Mass Effect's exciting new (old) sharkmobile, Trine 2's awful poetry, Destiny's two unoriginal races, and True Detective, which Bill doesn't like, and therefore isn't allowed to have blueberry smoothies anymore.
Blame / praise Hamza for that headline
Now here's a game that really does feel right at home at Comic-Con. TT Games has a new trailer for LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham prepared for the San Diego convention and, better yet, images featuring LEGO Bat-Cow, Batman of ...
Death Scythe Batman
Square Enix has partnered WB and DC for a PlayArts Kai line of Batman toys designed by Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts director Tetsuya Nomura. Not a single zipper in sight.
The first prototype, above, is gracing Comic Con and looking a bit like Death Scythe from Gundam Wing (with some Spawn in there, maybe).
A worthy followup to the RoboCop figure
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of both the 1989 film and videogame, NECA has announced its first ever Batman figure in 7" scale.
This figure has over 25 points of articulation plus removable cape, Batarang, and Spear Gun a...
Red Hood is GameStop exclusive pre-order DLC
GameStop teased an announcement that seems to have come out: a GameStop exclusive Red Hood story pack for the upcoming Batman game. Harley, we already knew, is a pre-order incentive at most major retailers. There's ...
Batman: Assault on Arkham
Another Harley Quinn romance
Batman: Assault on Arkham is an upcoming direct-to-video animated film that serves as the direct sequel to Batman: Arkham Origins. Expect more not-so-zany adventures with the Riddler and Joker and the debut of the Suicide Sq...
I'll go for the Batgirl keychain, personally
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 ...
Oh what a surprise, said no one
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...
The Scarecrow Nightmare Pack detailed
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...
Crime stops here
What do you do when you explore all available paths with a character, and end up with nowhere to go? You reboot it, of course! Is that the position that Batman's in?
Mega64 thinks so. It took the unsolicited initiative and reinvented the Caped Crusader. Except now he has a raincoat instead of a cape. Also, he's a Puerto Rican guy now.
For Xbox One
[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...
As revealed by Batman's voice actor
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 ...
He stole the show yet again
During a demo showing off Batman: Arkham Knight at Sony's E3 press conference (which showed the caped crusader scaling Gotham City and driving around the Batmobile), the Scarecrow stole the spotlight to broadcast his sp...
