The enjoyable fighting system in the superb Warner Bros.-published Lord of the Rings game Shadow of Mordor is clearly inspired by the enjoyable fighting system in the superb Warner Bros.-published Batman Arkham games. Let's compare, shall we?
Troy Baker's Joker voice is one of the best things about Batman: Arkham Origins. But it’s also a disturbingly reverent impersonation of Mark Hamill's take on the Clown Prince of Crime. Therein lies the conundrum of the latest video game featuring the Dark Knight.
To this day, Batman: Arkham City remains a visually striking game. The grand, gothic feel of the comics was well-captured by art director David Hego and his team at Rocksteady. But I've never seen the game look quite like this.
The fact that you’d be able to play as Deathstroke in the upcoming Batman game squeaked out a few months ago, but this trailer is the first look we’re getting of Slade Wilson in action. Bad-ass, no?
The folks making Batman: Arkham Origins know exactly what they're trying to accomplish with this year's Dark Knight video game. It's the story of the night where Gotham City's supervillain culture spins irrevocably out of control. This is when the Dark Knight becomes a legend, they say. So, it's really too bad that…
Standing 13 inches tall and sporting a removable chest piece that reveals his internal organs, DC Collectibles' $90 Arkham City Solomon Grundy figure is the most hideous rendition of the character yet.
Having previously worked for companies like NCSoft, artist Kan Muftic's last major piece of gaming work was being one of those helping define Rocksteady's take on the Batman universe in the two excellent Arkham games.
Slipped within Time Warner's call to investors last week was this mention, from the company's chief financial officer, that the next entry in the acclaimed Arkham series of Batman video games will be arriving in 2013.
Wow. Just...wow. Yaya Han's Catwoman is great, as we've already seen when previously featured, but when paired with that Dark Knight, it just kicks Batman cosplay into a whole new dimension.
I mean, she should be right? The Dark Knight's always beating up on her puddin' and spoiling all her psychotic, malicious fun. But, darn if she doesn't look downright flirty here, in a new statue coming from DC Collectibles. The piece—sculpted by Jack Matthews—stands about 9.25 inches tall and sports the character…
These screens are supposed to be showing off the new
armored looks Battle Armored Tech (B.A.T.) Mode for Batman and Catwoman in the Wii U edition of last year's hit superhero game. But, really, these shots highlight the fact that Arkham City doesn't look demonstrably better on Nintendo's upcoming console. Honestly:…
Halloween Thanksgiving Christmas New Year's Day Valentine's Day St. Patrick's Day April Fools' Day Mother's Day Father's Day The 4th of July something called The Feast of St. Roch Labor Day. So if you're playing Batman: Arkham City and you don't believe in cheating by changing your system's internal clock, go…
Did you feel slightly on edge when you got out of bed this morning? Like your world was just a little bit more dangerous? As you went about your day, did you have the sense that you were… hunted?
Part of what's made Rocksteady's two Batman video games such great experiences has been the pitch-perfect stories players encountered in each. The narrative contributions in both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City came Paul Dini, who's written excellent Batman stories for TV and film as well. But it seems that Dini may…
Batman week continues! We've posted several "Lore in a Minute" videos - they're always very funny, though sometimes, as was the case with Kingdom Hearts, I still have no idea what the hell is going on in the game.
