Alien Isolation is set to come out in the next couple of months and with every new bit of information that’s released my excitement increases. From what we’ve seen so far Isolation looks poised to deliver a good time for both franchise fans and newcomers alike. Hell if it delivers on its developers promises it might even reinvent the horror genre as we know it!

In honor of its upcoming release I’m going to be taking a look at some licensed titles that did their series justices. While a fe...

This week's Deals With Gold feature the Batman Arkham Series, though Origins is left out, Inustice: Gods Among Us, TMNT and more. Those who don't have Gold don't feel left out as there are deals for you as well.



In this video, game director Sefton Hill explains the changes and additions to the Arkham formula and how it will keep the game play fresh and exciting.

Here is the list of five games priced under $20 that you won’t regret buying. If you haven’t played these games yet, buy them, and you’ll know that you had missed playing something good. And, if you’ve already played all of them, buy one to your friends as a Holiday gift.

"The inmates of Arkham Asylum have unleashed hell in Gotham City in Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s best-selling videogame Batman: Arkham City, and Square-Enix has recreated the videogame’s characters for their Batman: Arkham City Play Arts Kai statues. The latest two additions to the range, available from today, are the femme fatales Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy."

People play games and take in their information at their own pace, yet a misplaced spoiler can ruin that experience and the game's story. Spoilers typically suck for people, so why are there some that actively look for them, and then decide to share?

Some love it, some hate it: many "hit titles" for the Wii U are actually games for the PS3 or Xbox 360 that came out last year. Either they think that it's a cheap cop out, or they think it's a great way to get a complete edition of a game with enhanced controls. Here are a few games that could use a remake or reboot that could take advantage of the Wii U's unique GamePad controls.

The infamous RealGamerNewz crew gets together once again to discuss today's top news including the conceptual images revolving around a potentially cancelled (or just plain vaporware) title that's drawing much interest today from Assassin's Creed fans as well as Hi-Res images for the upcoming Arkham Origins for PS3 / 360.

"Today sees the launch of a board game based on the critically acclaimed videogame based on the hugely popular DC Comics superhero, Batman. Batman: Arkham City – Escape is a two-player board game that pits Batman against all of his greatest foes – from The Joker and Harley Quinn to Poison Ivy and The Riddler – as they try to escape Arkham City."

The Wii U has been struggling as of late and Nintendo has admitted sales haven’t been as high as they would like. So what went wrong? Will the Wii U recover and bounce back? What would make the console sell, a price cut to under $250? Where are the AAA, exclusive games? Could a Mario/Zelda game spur sales? GoozerNation takes a look at all of this and speculates on the console's future.

With the latest reveal that the next Arkham game is supposedly coming sometime this year, Jordan from Cinelinx takes a look at what additions he'd like to see as the series moves forward.

During a recent earnings report for investors, one of Time Warner's top execs made mention that a new Batman Arkham game would be landing sometime in 2013.

Over the weekend it appears as though Warner Bros. registered a bunch of new domain names, all of which contain "Arkham" somewhere within them, possibly hinting that a new game is on the way.

GoozerNation wraps up it's year-long series of reminders to help gamers legitimately get Arkham City's "Storyteller" achievement/trophy. Did you make it? Or did you cheat and adjust the game clock? Sound off in the comments. But if you are trying to get this for real, don't forget to visit Julian today, and Merry Christmas! Click in for a link to a video with all the stories, as well.

Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition doesn't do a lot different from last year's awesome game, but it does offer a chance for Nintendo fans who lacked a version of their own to play the game now. Making the package sweeter -- all of the DLC is included.

"Halloweeen, Halloween, All Saints Day. Wake up the witches or someone will pay!


GoozerNation continues it's one-year set of reminders to help you get Calendar Man's Storyteller achievement/Trophy in Batman: Arkham City. Storyteller requires the player to boot up their system to talk to Julian Day, AKA Calendar Man, on specific holidays through the year. Halloween was the first available holiday, but it's the last one for me to get personally."

"Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released today new screenshots taken from the forthcoming Batman: Arkham City Armoured Edition. These new images follow the confirmation that the videogame will be made available in the Wii U launch window."

Click in for information, as well as a link to a deal on the GOTY edition that would cost about as much as the DLC on its own, a great find for those who haven't started the game yet!

"For those of you looking to legitimately pass the "Storyteller" achievement or trophy in Batman: Arkham City, we're coming up on the Feast Day of Saint Roch, here on Thursday, August 16th. This article is scheduled to come out early to help those in European nations, but given the relative obscurity (please correct me if you follow this holiday strongly), many people may need this reminder."

Leviathyn.com | "The videogame industry is on its way to becoming as large as Hollywood. Franchises rake in millions of dollars, people line up for midnight releases and, more recently, voice actors are beginning to build fan bases. Most interesting to me is the idea that voice actors are beginning to have actor-level recognition. Some actors have even tried their hand at voice work. So with this area of gaming becoming more and more important I figured I would give you my picks for the top 5...

An online retailer has revealed the first images for the upcoming Catwoman Play Arts Kai figure, which is based on her appearance in Batman: Arkham City.

Football is starting back up soon! That mean Fantasy Football leagues are getting ready and setting up draft dates. If you could pick video game characters for your Fantasy Football team, who would it be? We think we got the best team.

Rocksteady's Batman games are amazing. If they wanted to stop, though, what should they focus on next? There are plenty of heroes to tackle and it would be great if they didn't stay DC Comics exclusive. Could you imagine a Spider-Man game like Arhkam City?

"It’s time for another edition of The Sandbox, the weekly feature in which the GamerNode team members reveal what we’ve been playing over the past few days and what we’ve got on our plates for the weekend. This week, Steam took hold of our wallets and made sure our PCs got plenty of attention."

With The Dark Knight Rises hitting theaters this week, everyone has got superheroes on the mind. Matt Beaudette of Gaming Irresponsibly decided to count down his ten favorite superhero games.

"Until Warner Bros. assembles its creative team around a "Justice League" movie, the studio and DC Entertainment are focusing on getting audiences used to seeing the group's superheroes together in other ways.

Arkham City's newest DLC expansion is centered around one of the most recognizable secondary characters in the Batman Universe: Harley Quinn. While it continues the gameplay and tells us a brand-new story, Randall from Leviathyn.com tells us why it failed to impress.

Gameplay footage of Batman: Arkham City was shown off at Nintendo's E3 press conference. Using the new WiiU controller, gamers can take total control of Batman and his gadgets.

Ryan Johnson of GoozerNation's first impressions of Batman: Arkham City's new storyline DLC Harley Quinn's Revenge is contained within the link. While an amazing piece in its own, and still better than some games in their entirety, the precedent set by the original game and a few presentation errors show some flaws in Batman's armor. Click in for the full review.

Harley Quinn’s Revenge uses the same formula that made Arkham City great to create a distinguished side story that unfortunately doesn’t answer any questions.

"Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment had a strong year in 2011 with Batman: Arkham City leading the charge to financial success. Time Warner’s Filmed Entertainment Business, which WBIE belongs to, saw its revenues rise to record heights last year. Surely part of this can be attributed not just to Rocksteady’s Arkham City, but to digital smash hit Bastion, Mortal Kombat, and Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7, too."

Leviathyn's Jason Fanelli wraps up the E3 One Year Later series by looking back on the games voted Best of E3 2011. Did the best of the show actually meet their lofty expectations, or is the jury still out on some of them? Read on to find out.

"Following the confirmation of an official release date for the forthcoming Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released the first in a series of ‘behind the scenes’ videos for the videogame. In Batman: Arkham City, players were drawn into the elaborate and engrossing world of the Dark Knight, and the reality of that universe depends on a talented team of foley artists and sound designers to bring it to life."

"When the forthcoming Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition was revealed last month, the May release date offered by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment was considered to be international. This was certainly not the case however, as the publisher has revealed that gamers in PAL territories will have a much bigger wait on their hands."

Some new screenshots and a new game trailer for the upcoming Harley Quinn's Revenge DLC pack were released today. The DLC is scheduled for release on May 30th and adds two hours of extra gameplay to the Batman: Arkham City storyline.

Unfortunately, a lot of our favourite superheroes haven't been done justice in the video game world, but there are a handful of games that have made us proud to play as our favourite caped and non-caped crusaders.

"I have a problem. It’s nothing too serious and it’s nothing I can’t recover from, but damn do I have a problem. I am a serial game slacker; I buy games, play a few hours and then get distracted and don’t finish them for a long time, if ever. On my shelf right now I have a bunch of games that I started but only played a few hours of. These include: Final Fantasy XIII-2, Nier, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Batman: Arkham City, Dark Souls and many, many more. I can’t really understand why or how..."

Gamesta.com takes a look at what controversial game developer David Jaffe had to say at this year's DICE summit. The man known for God of War and Twisted Metal argued that stripping down gameplay elements in accordance to narrative is a waste of time, money and resources.

Ryan recently had situations fall as to where his traditionally non-gamer wife jumped at trying Batman: Arkham City and is now hooked on L.A. Noire. What is it about these games that draws a non-gamer who traditionally avoids the controller like the plague to get so in-depth as to have a desire to complete a game? Better yet, what should Ryan have in store for her once she's done so he doesn't lose a gamer partner? Read in to see his opinions, and please drop s...

Now that 2011 is done, I've compiled a best and worst of the past year. I talk about the hits and misses, Sony's plight, and shine some light on new IPs that deserve all the praise they get. Who will win game of the year? click to find out!

"2011 has been a very well-paced year for gamers. We started out with a couple of hits in January and ended with a major release less than a week before Christmas. My favorites this year include horror, comedy, epic RPG’s, downloadable arcade games, and even a DLC pack from a 2010 game that was so good it deserves just as much honor as the full games. Developers are making great games at a faster rate than anyone can play them all, but here are ten that I thoroughly enjoyed."

In this episode, the guys talk about Star Wars: The Old Republic, Trine 2, Pushmo, Marvel Pinball: Vengeance and Virtue, Batman: Arkham City, Don't Run With a Plasma Sword, 3D Classics: Kirby's Adventure, Grand Theft Auto III (on iOS), DC Universe Online, Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride, Yoshi's Island DS, the 3DS GBA Ambassador games, and the sales numbers for the PlayStation Vita.

Online retailer, Amazon.com, is currently offering last-minute holiday discounts for several big-named 2011 games on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 systems.

Two new DLC packs have been announced for Batman: Arkham City - The Arkham Bundle, the Challenge Map Pack, as well as a free Batman Inc. Batsuit Skin.

Batman: Arkham City is one of the hottest games of the holiday season and 2011 in general. Amazon gives us a nice deal by cutting the price of Arkham City down to $39.99.

In this week's edition of Top 10 Tuesdays, Matt Beaudette of Gaming Irresponsibly runs down the Top 10 Games of 2011. Where does your favorite game rank on the list?

"For many of us the VGAs were a bit underwhelming.

We had new announcements in the form of new ‘post-apocaliptic’ zombie survival type games (sigh), and new footage of some upcoming games that look either very promising (Bioshock Infinite, Hitman Absolution) or incredibly silly (Metal Gear Rising: Revengance, or as I call it: Devil May Rise: Cryvengance).
Then we had the idiocy that made our gaming industry look even more puerile with ‘tea bagging’ those whose speech went a little long and..."

"PSS: "You just watched the Spike TV Game of the Year Awards, and might be watching the re-runs right now. However we are glad to have you here and want to share our own game of the year awards. We have browsed the internet, talked with one another, and made several tough decisions, but this is what we believe the winners should be! Either way, this was an absolutely fantastic year to be a gamer.""

"Games based on movies rarely do well with either fans or critics. The movie license seems to make game development extremely difficult for many reasons and recent games based on popular movie characters that weren’t tied to a movie (the Batman: Arkham franchise for example) have set a new precedent for games based on popular characters from other media. Why do games turn out better when they aren’t tied to a movie and what can the industry learn from past successes?"

NoobFeed.com has the latest news on Batman: Arkham City. The action adventure is now leveling the playing field for everyone that didn't preorder and got their hands on special skins. A skin pack of 7 will now be available in one convenient DLC bundle.

Daav from NoobFeed.com revisits Arkham City, on PC this time, to see how Batman works on there. It's fairly similar, with some minor discrepancies, but what's certain is that Batman: Arkham City is a prime title with great controls and impeccable use of source material.

NoobFeed.com gets the delayed PC edition for Batman: Arkham City. The justice spreader even gets encased into a sizeable contraption filled with bat-goodies. Daav thought it'd therefore be a good idea to spread this joy with fellow gamers.

Amazon has begun their Black Friday video game deals, which includes over 300 different accessories and games for the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii, PC, PSP, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms.

"Are you looking to buy a new Xbox at one of the big sales this weekend? What about a recent AAA game at half price, or maybe an old hit that you never got around to. We looked through all of the retailers and online sales to find the best Xbox deals for Black Friday and are here with our recommendations on how you should spend your Xbucks this week."

Black Friday is getting closer and the discounts on video games are getting even better. Here are the Xbox 360-related deals that you can find at Walmart.

Black Friday is right around the corner and there are some hot deals. A 4gb 360 system bundle from Walmart for $199. Walmart also has AAA games for sale for $28. Other retailers have PS3 Holiday bundles $199. Gamestop and Best Buy also has several AAA titles on sale like Sonic Generations and Assassin's Creed Revelations. Goozernation has a full list of some of the best deals.

"I regret to inform you that the Nation’s electronic security has been compromised. Last week Gamestop announced that every copy of Batman Arkham City they sell would come with a free copy of the movie Batman Returns. Gamestop has depicted this as a bonus to increase sales, claiming that Batman fans would be more likely to purchase the game if it came with a streaming copy of Joel Schumacher’s 1995 film"

Brock Poulsen from Goozernation comes up with some ideas for what could be an awesome Sherlock Holmes game, and some ideas for the next Batman game or DLC.

The Spike Video Game Awards are always good for a certain level of hilarity, only not the kind you want. Disney's Epic Mickey? Need for Speed: The Run? L.A. Noire being up for best graphics over Battlefield 3?

What were they thinking?

Looks like a few of the Goozernation writers are pumped up about Black Friday. Could it be the chance to get a 4gb 360 for less then $150? What about Batman Arkham City for $28 and Assassins Creed: Revelations for $34?

Review for last Rocksteady game: Batman Arkham City enclosed dlc for Catwoman and nightwing. Who has not dreamed at least once in their life to be a superhero?

Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have confirmed that the Windows PC version of Batman: Arkham City will be available later this month but gamers have expressed extreme anger over the delay.

Brock Poulsen from GoozerNation jumps into the tights of Dick Grayson, formerly known as Robin and currently known as Nightwing, and takes up the escrima sticks to dole out some justice to Gotham's criminals.

NoobFeed.com writer David Gabriel jumps into the dark, tumultuous world of Batman: Arkham City. A sequel that features a much larger scale than its predecessor, will Rocksteady's latest title deliver as intended?

Following on from the success of Batman: Arkham Asylum, Rocksteady Studios have pulled out another great super hero game. Playing like a blend of everything that was good about Arkham Asylum and everything that was good about Spiderman 2, Arkham City turns it all up to 11 with stunning finesse.

"While playing through the roughly 15 hour roller coaster ride of a game, these elements craft an experience that Spiderman, Hulk, Harry Potter and James Bond haven’t yet given me in a licensed video game. Instead of swinging from building to building in between thoughtless missions as Spiderman, I more-less fed Scarrecrow to Killer Croc just before scowering the Croc’s lair for an antidote as Batman. Rather than wave my wand at a textureless, funny lookin’ Voldemort in a scene I’ve read about..."

In this episode, the guys talk about Batman: Arkham City, Battlefield 3, Kirby's Return to Dreamland, The War of the Worlds, Saints Row: The Third, Bejeweled 3, Dungeon Defenders, BloodRayne: Betrayal, Dark Souls, Puzzle Quest HD, the World of Warcraft news, the Grand Theft Auto V announcement, and more.

The Nightwing Bundle Pack, which adds the new character Nightwing to the Arkham City character roster, was released on Xbox LIVE earlier today for 560 Microsoft Points.

"Batman: Arkham City can be a tough place. I mean, it’s full of the seediest lowlifes that Gotham could spit out AND it’s run by a devious, malicious, fascist dictator. Like I said, it can be tough. Add to that the lack of an instruction manual in the game box and it’s fairly easy to feel overwhelmed by the little things."

Craig Will of GoozerNation.com relates his Extra Life 2011 activities. What games did he play? Did he beat any? How can you contribute to the success of Extra Life as a charity drive? All that is answered within...

Brock Poulsen from GoozerNation dons the cowl of the Dark Knight and ventures into Arkham City to take on the latest Batman game and see if it lives up to the hype.

NoobFeed.com is back with the caped crusader and the DLC announcements for Nightwing and Robin. Let's not forget that the PC version of Batman Arkham City is also underway. And let's mix it up with another addition announcement: Pro Evolution 2012 will be releasing on PSP and PS2 for a reduced price!

With the rise in popularity of gaming, this generation of consoles has been extremely successful. But is the success of current generation consoles holding back progress on new hardware?

Batman Arkham City is arguably Game of the Year material. The game is crammed with stuff to explore, the Catwoman stages are an animal all its own, and the new gadgets are smooth as silk.

One company has taken it upon themselves to create the most realistic and detailed real life costume from the recently released Batman: Arkham City, and it's sure to make fans salivate.

"On the opposite side of things, Rocksteady could have plans for a short Robin campaign and just haven’t said anything yet. If that turns out to be the case, then I’ll go back in time and erase this article; I wouldn’t mind."

Default Prime reviewer Alex Carlson takes on the role of the caped crusader in his newest video game form with Batman: Arkham City. It turns out that there's not much to complain about, at all.

There are a lot of big releases left before the year's end, but a few games have already come out this Fall that you should be playing right now. On the other hand, there are a few games that we'd expected to be great but didn't quite hit the mark.

"Our recently-posted $550 budget gaming PC and $1795 BF3-themed rig have both prompted support requests on our forums for building an in-between system -- that's what this one accomplishes. If you're in the "heavy wallet, but not quite burning a hole in my pants" stage of the game, this ~$900 build will suit you beautifully for many, many years of gaming on high or ultra graphics settings."

An online retailer is currently offering a modest discount for the recently-released Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 open-world action-adventure game, Batman: Arkham City

"Neon signs flicker and flash in the darkness of this winter’s night and the breath exhaling from the mouths of enemies twists and turns and curls away in the cold, stark air and before they can even inhale once more, you have swooped down amongst the guards landing one enemy with a glide kick to the face, you counter another enemies attack and setup the remaining enemy using a combination of your batclaw and your right fist. Batman: Arkham City much like Arkham Asylum places you into the role..."

"If you’re that gamer who’s always trying to save a buck while still getting your video game on, then you’re not going to want to miss this opportunity for free gaming. Whether you play PC games, Android games, iPhone games or Xbox 360 games, you can find a way to game for free here. These aren’t free online games we’re talking about here; these are hard copies or straight downloads to your gaming device. However, some of these free game deals won’t last for long, so save money while you can."

A few more images have been revealed for the Limited Edition Official Strategy Guide of the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 title, Batman: Arkham City.

Here are my first impressions about Batman: Arkham City. I'm all of 3% content completed, and I can already tell that it's going to be a while before I leave Arkham City. There's a ton of stuff to explore, even before I sink my teeth into the main story.

More additional screenshots have been revealed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to commemorate the launch of their multiplatform title, Batman: Arkham City.

"EB Expo 2011 has concluded, and it most certainly was an event we shan’t soon forget.

Brock from GoozerNation offers some suggestions for getting ready to fight crime as the World's Greatest Detective when the game is released on October 18th.

The two exclusive covers have been revealed for the limited edition official strategy guide of the highly-anticipated upcoming multiplatform title, Batman: Arkham City.

PC gaming is not likely to ever completely die, but it's certainly as far from the leading role as it's ever been. When one of the most influential visionaries in PC gaming is declaring the platform to be playing second fiddle, we have no choice but to listen.

Several new launch screenshots have been revealed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for their upcoming multiplatform title, Batman: Arkham City.

"Online Passes are becoming more and more popular for games, and the reason, as usual, is money. Developers are tired of putting all of the effort into making games and making sure that servers keep running while profiting only on the initial sale of the game. Online Passes give purchasers of pre-owned games incentive to pay the developer for their product. Is this unfair to the customer? You be the judge."

"Arkham City is shaping up to be something epic in and of itself. It’s got a bunch of playable characters, a huge world, a vast amount of villains, a great story and is the sequel to one of the best superhero games of all time. I cannot wait to get my hands on this game next week."

In addition to this, it was announced at PAX that a “New Game +” mode would be added to the game to add to the replay value. Check out all the details below."

"Probably the best thing about number 4 on our list is that she's not a good girl. She's naughty. She's a little bit crazy, but then again, aren't they all? She dresses in a leotard, a schoolgirl outfit, or some combination of black and red goth attire. She paints her face a little more obviously than most women -- all of this while still maintaining some kind of innocence that makes her seem sweet even while threatening you with an oversized mallet. How does she do it? I don't know, but..."

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has released their rating summary for Batman: Arkham City, detailing the game’s mild language, suggestive themes and more.

"Batman: Arkham City is the sequel to the popular game Batman: Arkham Asylum that will see the continuation of Batman’s story as he attempts to keep the peace in Gotham City. In Arkham City, part of Gotham has been cordoned off and made up to be a replacement for the destroyed Arkham Asylum. A bunch of news has come out about the game which will feature tons of new characters, gadgets for Batman, and more. Check it all out below."

Brock from GoozerNation postulates some fun game combinations, and what great gaming elements from certain games he'd like to see added to other games.

"BATMANA! (sorry, had to be done). I’m very excited for Batman: Arkham City – Rocksteady is slowly trickling out gameplay teasers every so often that excite me every single time, and the latest of the screens from the game is absolutely no exception."

"Comic-Con 2011 has officially come to a close, and over the past few days we’ve been in recovery mode, overcoming the sheer awesomeness of the event. We’ve seen a lot of panels, played a lot of games and had some terrific, unforgettable moments that will stay with us well into 2012, and maybe even a little past that. But, in case you’ve missed the event for some reason (or just didn’t have the opportunity to pick up passes), fret net. We’re recapping the ten coolest video game moments we’ve r..."

An online retailer is offering a modest discount to the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the upcoming multiplatform action-adventure game, Batman: Arkham City.

Arkham City is easily one of this year's most anticipated titles. With the game's release only a few months away, a lot of questions have been creeping up. Questions like: "How will Robin be 'different' from Batman?" and "How will Catwoman and Batman interact?" are all on everyone's mind. Find out the answers in this exclusive interview with Marketing Game Manager, Dax Ginn.

Comic con has been a great venue for all things Batman. We've heard of Thalia Al Ghul, Black Mask and now the Penguin is finally seen in action. He also has a pretty devastating surprise for Batman. Check it out after the break:

Batman has additional company in his latest adventure in Arkham City. Looks like Talia Al Ghul and Black Mask are making an appearance in Rocksteady's newest installation.

"I believe it’s pretty obvious tons of us gamers are eagerly awaiting the release of the dark knight’s newest crusade. Batman: Arkham City may very well be one of the most anticipated games of the year. As with all large scale titles in recent years a collector’s edition packed full of memorabilia to satisfy Batman fans everywhere."

Online retailer Newegg.com is offering pre-order discounts to three highly-anticipated video games: Batman: Arkham City, Battlefield 3 and Resistance 3.

"Batman: Arkham City is one of the most anticipated games of the year and a brand new piece of art has been released that showcases the Batman villain Two-Face. Two-Face plays a central role in the game, during the course of his ongoing feud with Catwoman. Check out the artwork below"

Batman Arkham City is the heavily anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed, Arkham Asylum. Today, I bring you the Riddler as the guest of honor in the most recently released trailer.

best Buy has a new listing for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Asylum Collector's Edition. Although the listing does not specify any of the contents, it does list the price.

"Riddle me this, riddle me that, since when did The Riddler become Jigsaw with a green suit and hat? A new Arkham City trailer has been released and it features our favorite diabolical leprechaun rigging victims in some rather saw-esque traps for Batman to spring them from. It seems he’s stepped up from the lame side quest riddles in the first title."

"Raptr knows that better then buying a great game is getting a great game for free so they are giving away Batman: Arkham City. No cost nothing complex to do all you got to do is show support for the game.
The rules are simple, just join Raptr’s new website and then make your way to the Batman: Arkham City page and click “follow” at the top right. That’s it. If you’re lucky, you may be one of the five winners of a free copy of the game."

"The sequel to one of the best comic book to game adaptations ever, and one of 2009’s best games is probably one of Gamer Gaia’s most anticipated games of 2011. Batman: Arkham City will be upon us on October 18th 2011, and fans can expect one amazing ride. Some new gameplay footage has been released showing off both Catwoman, and Batman doing what they do best."

Check out this footage showing 10 minutes of Batman Arkham City gameplay. Catwoman and Batman face off against Two-Face and his goons. Also you get to see some open world gameplay and a side mission.

"Finally, the box art we’ve all been waiting for is here, the box art for Batman: Arkham City. Ok, maybe we haven’t all been waiting for the box art. Maybe a few of you were waiting for the game, fine most of you, but it is one more sign that Batman: Arkham City’s release date is rapidly approaching."

The team from Console Domination are back with episode 2 of their new podcast. This week the guys cover all that has happened from the week like the recent attacks on developers to game reviews on inFamous 2 and Child of Eden. Theres also a great 100 game give away competition!

"I love Catwoman. I can’t get enough Catwoman. It devastated me that Catwoman was not around except for a very short paragraph in Arkham Asylum. In fact, I was so disheartened by the lack of Catwoman that I didn’t even bother to play Arkham Asylum."

Nerd Reactor: We knew that Robin was a playable character for the Best Buy pre-order exclusive, now here’s the first image of the boy wonder with a hood. You can say that he is… Robin Hood. He’s looking pretty young and tough. We’re still not sure what his outfit’s color will be outside of the black and white image. I have to say that he’s looking like a young Cole from inFAMOUS.

"Some audio tapes were discovered at E3 that reveal proffesor Hugo Strange who is interrogating Selina Kyle a.k.a Catwoman. Strange is one of Batman's oldest villians and even predates Joker and the feisty feline he has captured."

Robin is to be a downloadable as well as playable character in the upcoming Batman game. He only be available in the challenge maps, however. If you want Robin, you'll have to pre-order the game from Best Buy in order to secure your code.

Batman: Arkham City is set to launch later this year in October. Here are eight new screenshots released earlier today at E3 to hold you over for awhile.

"Warner Bros just kindly sent us some brand new screens of Batman: Arkham City, fresh from the E3 showcase. Once again, they look crisp, detailed and send my hype-radar into overdrive. This game really cannot come soon enough."

"I never thought I'd see a bat trying to save a cat, but in Arkham city we have just that. After Catwoman is captured by Two-Face, naturally it's up to Batman to save his criminal love interest."

"I know, being a journalist, I'm meant to be impartial and all that and fairly weigh up pros with cons, but there's just something about Arkham City that wows me at every turn. I'm yet to absolutely anything negative about this title - every time Rocksteady releases new information it only serves as the fuel to raise my excitement even higher. They did this yet again today when they released the latest trailer to showcase the game. All I can say is bravo, Rocksteady, bravo."

"Catwoman will play a lot differently to Batman as well, she uses a much more fast-paced fighting style that compliments her feline approach to life. Consisting of slick finishers, weapon attacks and a wide variety of other Catwoman-ish gadgets, Selina's attacks will no doubt leave opponents reeling before you can say 'Who let the cat out of the bag'."

Magazine scans surfaced on the Internet revealing that Oswald Cobblepot (Penguin) will be appearing in Batman: Arkham City. Scans of an Arkham City feature from the Australian Sunday Herald turned up containing the first pictures and details of the game’s new villain.

Arkham Asylum reinvigorated the Batman video game franchise in 2009, and this fall's sequel is greatly anticipated. Will the recently announced FPS Gotham City Impostors water down both the Batman license?

"You know how sometimes a bit of information gets released about a game you've been waiting for for months, then it makes you think that they've ruined it? Well, nothing like that has happened yet with Batman: Arkham City, as developer Rocksteady seems hell-bent on constantly giving me information that sets my fever-pitch to ridiculous levels of excitement. The latest of these is an announcement of the campaign modes' length, which clocks in at a rather significant 25 hours (apparently)."

Why has it been so hard to make a decent comic book themed video game? With the exception of Arkham Asylum, it is completely shocking to see that two industries that are so closely related...

Additional details have been announced about our favorite cape crusader. The biggest news being that an old familiar villain is coming back for his next appearance. Check out the full story for all of the details. Cheers!

"Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced that this Fall's most anticipated game, Batman: Arkham City, will be released on October 18 in North America (October 21 in the UK and the rest of Europe). Apologies to Uncharted 3, Gears of War 3 and the rumored Halo remake, but it's true."

"There’s a lot of pressure riding on Batman: Arkham City. As the sequel to the best-received Batman game of all time, not only does the game have to be better, it has to be outstanding. Developer Rocksteady is working hard to make this sequel shine, and we’ve finally had a chance to make decisions for ourselves."

Batman: Arkham City is one of those titles that we as a gaming community can't wait for. The first installment gave us the pinnacle of super hero games. Check out the full story to hear why you NEED to get excited, if you are already. Cheers!

"DC Comics has just announced that this May they will be releasing a new comic series set in the universe established in the worldwide best seller Batman: Arkham Asylum. The comic book, which is written by Paul Dini (the same man who wrote Arkham Asylum) is set one year after the events we played in Batman: Arkham Asylum and serves as a set-up to what occurs in Batman: Arkham City."

"This year has seen some of the most anticipated games ever and many lived up to the hype. Others lay strewn on the battlefield, only the ghosts remaining to remind us what could have been. Sadly, this will be the last ever game of the year, as the world is ending at some point next year so it’s a good thing this is a bloody brilliant list. Let’s kick it off with the most original introduction to an awards list ever; and the nominees are..."

"Gotham City is a place full of deranged lunatics who wish nothing better than to bring suffering and despair upon the general public. Last year, Batman: Arkham Asylum showcased some of the most popular villains in the franchise. The Joker led a rebellion against the Dark Knight, and characters such as The Riddler, Killer Croc, and Poison Ivy were portrayed in an excellent manner that made gamers want to take them down with a little brutal punishment. And although Batman needs to show restrain..."

"Spike TV’s annual Video Game Awards are generally mocked by those familiar with the industry and largely ignored by anyone else. Yet for the fourth year in a row, I found myself watching every minute of the show last weekend. I know I wasn’t alone; most of my gaming friends were watching too, as well as following the coverage on the internet as it happened. There were a few highlights, I’ll admit, and it’s come a long way since body painting on bikini babes, but for the most part, the 2010 VG..."

"How do you expand on a platforming game that essentially let you create any platforming level your imagination could muster? By removing the label of platformer. LBP 2 is not a platforming game. While the bulk of the main story will be platforming, and so will many of the user-created levels, platforming has suddenly become just one part of the experience. LBP 2 will allow users to create whatever they want. Want to play a driving game reminiscent of Micro Machines? Easy. How about a J-RPG? G..."

"WB Games released the first set of screenshots from Batman: Arkham City yesterday. These images, along with a new preview in Official Xbox Magazine UK, have revealed some of the inspirations of the development team at Rocksteady Studios... and some of them should be very familiar to long-time Batfans."

"The cover of GameInformer seemingly hinted at the inclusion of some kind of multiplayer for Batman: Arkham City for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 and now an article from UK magazine, PSM3, confirms it. Unfortunately, details are light."

"Batman: Arkham Asylum for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 redefined the comic book super-hero game genre and proved that they can be successful and not just hashed out messes. Batman: Arkham City looks to be taking it a step judging from the latest screenshots from Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros Interactive."

"The first story and game details for Batman: Arkham City were leaked out earlier today and so some scans from the upcoming issue of GameInformer inevitably follows. The scans are not the highest quality as can be expected but do offer some insight into the game."

"Batman: Arkham City was made official only last week with the big reveal planned in the September issues of gaming magazines like GameInformer. Well, that magazine made its way into someone hands early and now the first details on the sequel to the hit Batman: Arkham Asylum has been revealed."

Although the holiday season may be packed with big blockbuster releases, a few highly-anticipated games ended up slipping into next year. Here are the top 10 games that were delayed until 2011.

What do Shark Week, Fable III chickens, Batman, and Guillermo del Toro have in common? They're all part of the best of video game news from this last week. DEFCON:AWESOME has spent the last week trawling the internet, bookmarked a bunch of the hottest and coolest articles, and packaged them up for you in this weekly news recap.

"Warner Bros and Rocksteady Games finally revealed the name for the sequel to their surprise hit, Batman: Arkham Asylum. Batman: Arkham City is scheduled to hit the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 sometime this Fall."

"After an initial reveal at the Spike TV Video Game Awards more than six months ago, WB Games is finally ready to officially announce Batman: Arkham Asylum 2. Now known as Batman: Arkham City, the sequel sees the Dark Knight patrolling "Arkham City," a heavily fortified district within the metropolis that houses "Gotham City's thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds.""

"The sequel to Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham Asylum for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 was notably absent at Comic-Con in July leaving many to wonder how much longer they'd have to wait to find out about the new game. That wait will be ending within the next month as the Official Playstation Magazine and Official Xbox Magazine will be the first to bring that information."

"Comic Con 2010 has come and gone like so many before it and we got a lot of exciting news from this past celebration of everything nerdy. In addition to announcements like Street Fighter X Tekken and the mirrored bizarro Tekken X Street Fighter, the show had a lot for everyone. It also proved that gaming has infiltrated every known aspect of the nerd-world. But now that all the announcements are behind us and all the SD cards and Duo Sticks have been emptied onto our hard drives, it’s time to..."

With this years E3 starting tomorrow, All Age Gaming's Ian Crane sifts through the abundance of E3 2010 rumors circulating and provides some rumors that should turn out to be true and some that we hope will be true.

"Mark Hamill may be most famous for playing a light-saber wielding hero in the original Star Wars trilogy but he has quietly built up a career doing voice-over work for cartoons and video games. His most memorable role is that of Batman's arch-nemesis, The Joker, who he played in the animated version from 1992 to 2004. He returned to the role in Batman: Arkham Asylum but he may be done with the Joker after the sequel to the surprise hit of 2009."

"Conroy, who spoke during a panel during the Chicago Comics & Entertainment Expo this past weekend, said the new game will have a similar tone to the animated movie Batman Beyond: The Return of the Joker.
"It's really, really dark," Conroy said of the game in relation to the film. "It involves a lot of the villains and it goes to that area - it's that dark.""

"With E3 less than two months away, some of gaming's biggest franchises will soon grow just a bit larger. Not all of these games have been officially announced; some are just rumors. But one thing is certain, they're all definitely in development. So here's everything we know about another batch of gaming's great unannounced sequels"

"When the Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 teaser trailer made its debut at the Spike Video Game Awards, it was full of clues as to who Batman might be facing off against. Now we know for sure three villains who will be in the game other than Joker thanks to the voice actors playing the parts."

All Age Gaming's John Elliott takes a look at another developer in AAG's second Developer Profile. This time he profiles the developer who made one of the best games in 2009, Rocksteady Studios.

"When we caught up with Hill at last Friday's award ceremony, we asked him whether there were any other comic heroes or licenses that he'd like to adapt:

"I think one of the things about working on Batman is that you really get to see how good all the villains are," he said.
"I really think there's scope to take some of those villains, even some of the not-so-famous ones like Bane, who has a phenomenal backstory, and really work on turning that into something original and fresh.

"That..."

At this year's GDC, Rocksteady art director David Hego discussed the risk the company took when rebooting the Batman game franchise, the pressure they faced when adapting well-known characters to a game environment, and why they chose to go with a fairly realistic style for the game...

"Is Rocksteady's superb Batman video game series already reaching the point of Robin? So says a listing for Batman: Arkham Asylum II at the occasionally factual Internet Movie Database. That could be bad news... or it could be good.

Update: Warner Bros. reps respond, saying "To our knowledge, what you asked about is inaccurate information. We are not yet discussing details for the sequel." We'd prefer a hard and fast "No!" or "Yeah, he's totally in it." but that's about as clear as WB is ma..."

It looks like Rocksteady have some big plans for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Asylum sequel.
Rocksteady boss Sefton Hill recently revealed that they are aiming to "surprise people again" and promised that the game "won't let anyone down."

Rocksteady, currently working on an Arkham Asylum sequel for Warner, is understandably happy about the whole affair.

The “new” year is already practically ancient, and pretty soon we’ll have run out of time to make wild, erratic, entirely factual predictions about things that will happen over the next 11 months. So with January nearly over, we’re going for the jugular and answering the question that’s on everyone’s mind: between the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii and PC, which gaming platform will claim victory by the end of this year.

Ever since Batman: Arkham Asylum was released, fans and game sites alike have been speculating and wishing for many different things in the sequel. Destructoid, IGN and Gamesradar have put forth their ideas, now here is Bitmob's wish list for he sequel.

"Mark Hamill unleashes a fiendish cackle that simultaneously sounds like skin ripped from flesh and fingernails dragged across corrugated iron. If the bowels of hell have a soundtrack, this is it.

But the actor's descent into madness is only momentary and for anyone familiar with Batman: Arkham Asylum, it is all too familiar. In rehearsing his role as Joker, Hamill would laugh to himself in his car: a practice, he jokes, that wasn't so unusual in Los Angeles."

"We’re barely two weeks into 2010 and there’s already enough must-have games to choke one of Avatar’s six-legged horses. January alone is home to seven big-name releases, with February, March and April continuing the trend. Hell, we even know what’s coming in the summer and in some cases (like Halo Reach) we’re even certain of the fall’s heaviest hitters.

Collected here is every game that matters (so far) in 2010. Obviously some games will slip and others will be announced in June at E3, bu..."

While Batman: Arkham Asylum was universally praised as one of the best games of 2009, the game's Detective Mode feature recieved mixed reactions. Some fans liked it, while others thought it made the game too easy or spoiled the game's graphics.
IGN wasn't a fan of Detective Mode... and they wouldn't mind seeing it gotten rid of in the sequel.

When the Batman: Arkham Asylum sequel was announced, fans were shocked and excited over the possibility of stepping back into Batman's shoes, but not everybody is anticipating the game's release. Bitmob's Michael Rousseau believes that the sequel was prematurely announced and is unsure as to whether another game in the franchise will be able to live up to the original.

Interactive Entertainment has today announced that it will be the worldwide publisher of the as yet untitled sequel. Batman: Arkham Asylum is one of 2009’s most highly rated and top-selling video games, and was published by Eidos Interactive. The sequel is currently in development with Rocksteady Studios and remains based on DC Comics’ core Batman property."

Batman: Arkham Asylum 2's teaser trailer was one of the highlights at yesterday's VGAs.

In a surprise move at the VGAs, Rocksteady announced that Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 is currently in the works. Mark Hamill also revealed that he will be returning as the voice of the Joker.

Presumably set soon after the first game, a short teaser trailer revealed that Gotham has descended into chaos, crime and rioting gangs have taken over the city, and a rather sick looking Joker has escaped Arkham Asylum with Harley Quinn...

Today Warner Bros. released their supposed 2010 games line-up, including a new Batman game and FEAR 3. Unfortunately that list was quickly taken down, either because it was leaked too early or because it wasn't accurate, so I'll stick this in the 'Rumor' category for now.

In what could be a slip of the tongue on Rocksteady founder Sefton Hill's part, a recent interview with Official Playstation Magazine (issue 38) hints off that the team will be working on another Batman game. It's no question that Batman: Arkham Asylum is a major hit this year, with over two million copies sold within weeks of release, as well as it's highly critical appraise. One can assume a sequel has gotten the green light, but an official confirmation couldn't hurt either, Rocksteady.

"The hallmark of any excellent videogame is that even if you beat it, you don't stop thinking about it. You want more. That's certainly proven true of Batman: Arkham Asylum. IGN's comics team, being avid gamers themselves, have been imagining scenarios and villains that would make excellent backdrops and participants in a follow-up to Rocksteady's recent release.

True to their wild imaginations, the team managed to conjure up a storyline and list of villains that would actually span two ga..."
