Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure

The next Scribblenauts is set in the DC Comics universe

8:00 AM on 05.15.2013 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure coming to the PC, Wii U, and 3DS

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. 

Scribblenauts Unmasked will take you to a ton of different DC locations. In the demo we saw, Maxwell and the various heroes are hanging out in the Batcave. These locations are faithful representations of DC environments, and there's a surprising amount of depth to them. 

Characters you come across in these levels will also have quests for you, called Heroic Feats in the game. Every time you enter a level a new procedurally-generated puzzle will be presented to you. These dynamic Heroic Feat events are always going to be different no matter how many times you enter the same level. One example of how this could work is Batman becoming paralyzed at the hand of some villain. You have to save Batman as Maxwell by getting him an antidote, and once revived Batman will take care of the villain. 

The more puzzles you solve, the more Reputation points you'll be given. And with Reputation points you can spend it to unlock new content for Maxwell on things like costumes, levels, and more.

There's a ton of DC characters here; like, it's crazy. To put it in perspective, there are 33 different Batmans and 133 Green Lanterns. At one point we saw a giant room filled with DC heroes and villains like Superman, Batman, Joker, Wonder Woman, Darkseid, Cat Woman, Sinestro, Green Lantern, Flash, Abin Sur, James Gordon -- even freaking Mogo, the living planet that's a Green Lantern is featured here.

Later in the presentation 5th Cell let loose the nearly 100 characters all just hanging out in the demo stage where a giant brawl erupted. Adjectives can still be applied on characters, so you can totally call in a zombie Batman into the middle of the fight where he will attack others, which will also slowly spread the zombie virus, thus eventually turning everyone into zombies.

If that's not enough you can even create your own superhero in the Hero Creator. You know, in case you get sick of the 133 Green Lanterns or something. You can mix and match parts of different bodies from the DC characters, plus apply different superpowers to them and create some freakish Frankenstein of a hero. 

There's a giant Wikipedia-like system that will give you biographies on everything in the game as well. It's accessed via the Batcomputer and will be a big help as you try and sort through everything that's available. 

Really, it's the same Scribblenauts you know and love, just overloaded with a ton of DC goodness. You can expect Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure to be out this fall for the PC, Wii U, and 3DS.

If you haven't played Tales from the Borderlands yet, GO BUY IT! By far the funniest game I have ever played, and the characters and narrative are incredibly well written. Very few memes unlike BL2 by the way.

Played all of Life is Strange today in one sitting. Bloody hell. You should all play it. Only game this year to make me cry. Bravo developers. Possibly the most valuable thing I've ever bought for £10.

Last night, got farther than ever in Wasteland 2. This is my third playthrough-once thru beta, once through the orig version, now on Directors cut. Worth the restart, and it speaks highly of the game that I like it enough to do this. DAMONTA HERE I COME!

GUYS HELP I KEEP BUYING MORE AMIIBO. Today it was Little Mac, since he went back up on Gamestop's website. I probably would have gotten Captain Falcon as well if I wasn't already running a little short on cash.

50 hours in and I can safely say that Xenoblade is the best JRPG I've played in years. Should hopefully be finished in time for X too!

I have 34 games in my Steam queue alone, 4 on xbone, and a handful on handhelds. I have 3 days to make a dent. Time's up, let's do this!

Community Question: To make up for yesterday, I decided to ask a second Community Question today. Have you taken advantage of any Black Friday deals today? If so, what did you purchase? Feel free to share pictures of your spoils, if you have any.

Some Black Friday artwork arrived today ! [img][/img]

Black Friday is getting to me. All these games I kinda, maybe want that are at anywhere between respectable and deep discounts, but I'm not sure if I want to bite. I'm wondering if Godzilla's worth $12? After checking review scores, I'm not sure.

Black Friday slowly seems to creep its way onto Continental Europe, but I'm not complaining! I managed to get my grubby little paws on a new physical copy of The Wonderful 101 for €20! Thanks, America!
Archelon avatarArchelon
Community Question: Since I missed yesterday, I am going to do something a little different today. Are there any questions you would like to ask me for a change? If so, please feel free. I may add a second Community Question later today, as well.

While partially responsible for one of the biggest jokes in the metal, Cold Lake by Celtic Frost, Curt Bryant is doing the soundtrack to the game Slain!. I'm digging the shitty garage band vibe.

Got a deal on a Surface Pro 3 model that I wanted. Now I just need a deal on a PS TV in Canada and I'm golden.
