I have a lot of action figures. Every once in awhile I like to pull them down from their shelves or out of their boxes. I admire each one. Maybe I'll pose then and take a few pictures. Then I get bored and put them away again. Playing Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure feels just like that.
That's young Bruce Wayne, standing over the bodies of his dead parents. Tasked with giving the grieving orphan something to console him, I went with irony.
The new Scribblenauts is out, so grab your dictionary and go on some wacky adventures with your fave DC heroes, or make some insane superheroes of your own with the game's editor—the PC community already seems to be having lots of fun with that. Above's the launch trailer, and here you can find our impressions.
There will be Supermen. Yep, in the plural.
Imagine a video game that includes 33 Batmans (Batmen?), 130 Green Lanterns and even Aztek The Ultimate Man. Imagine a game that, its creators say, includes ever super-powered hero or villain in DC Comics’ nearly 80-year history. That game is real. It's scheduled for a fall release.
