Well, I won't be playing as Red Hood or Harley in Batman: Arkham Knight

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 also PS4-exclusive Scarecrow DLC.

The success of the balkanization of game bits through suggested retailer-exclusivity is why GameStop is trying to connect with developers early in development to plan exclusive content at conception. I don't like this. If you don't, take the hit. Don't pre-order. Don't play as Red Hood or Harley.

It will only (keep) getting worse.

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...more

Batman: Arkham Knight won't launch until June

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...more

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...more

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...more

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 ...more

Batman: Arkham Knight pushed back to 2015

When Batman: Arkham Knight was announced back in March, they said we could expect it this year. You know how that goes. Now it's coming in 2015.  Rocksteady showed off Arkham Knight at a pre-E3 event a few weeks back. Th...more

Batman: Arkham Knight: Batmobile can transform into a freakin' tank!

We gave you our impressions from the very first look at Batman: Arkham Knight back in March, but now we're back with a twist. That Batmobile we talked so much about? Yeah, it's great. Cruisin' around Gotham and blowing up sh*t is never going to be anything but great. But they were holding out on us: The Batmobile can transform into a freakin' tank!more

Bladestorm: Nightmare is a historical game with evil Joan of Arc and dragons

I didn't play 2007's Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War, but I might play Bladestorm: Nightmare, an expanded version of the real-time tactics game for PS3, PS4, and Xbox One. The core remains the same -- you still side with ...more

Holy summoned triceratops, Lost Ark looks fantastic
