$20 Game of the Week: Batman – Arkham City (PS3, PC, Xbox 360, Wii U)

arkhamcity
Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Asylum wasn’t just the first good Batman game since the 16-bit days (well, the first good Batman game that didn’t involve Lego at least), it did for the caped crusader what games like Spider-Man 2, Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, and The Punisher did for their respective heroes: It put players into the role of a comic book superhero like never before. You weren’t just moving him around the screen and punching out opponents, you could make Batman do all the cool stuff that you saw in the comics and movies. You could sneak up behind enemies and take them out one by one, hang from above and dive in on a hapless foe, and effortlessly take out groups of armed thugs with little or no effort. You could even tap into his detective skills to find hidden objects and secrets. The game’s sequel, Arkham City (hinted at in a secret hidden room in Arkham Asylum) gives players an entire open world to experience.

TMNT Classics Bebop and Rocksteady revealed

Classics_Rocksteady_Bebop

MTVGeek tweeted a picture of the forthcoming second wave of the TMNT Classics line consisting of Bebop and Rocksteady. While, we’ve known for about a week that Wave 2 would consist of this pair, we have not previously seen any images of them.

I was uneasy that the figures would be based more heavily on the original action figures than their portrayals in the cartoon. Thankfully, that is definitely not the case. Rocksteady even comes with the army helmet that we really only see for the first few episodes of the series. I was lukewarm on the first wave’s turtles, but these two have me sold pretty solidly. I do hope that we see a trash can lid shield like the one packaged originally for Bebop.

Let us know in the comments what you think!

$20 Game of the Week: Batman – Arkham Asylum (PS3, Xbox 360, PC)

In 2009, Rocksteady developed the first good Batman game since the 16-bit days (okay, it was that but…) the best Batman game in recent history (okay, it was that too but…) the definitive Batman game (it was that until Arkham City was released earlier this fall) the second best Batman game ever. By taking cues from Bioshock, Metroid, and some of Marvel’s recent games, Batman Arkham Asylum puts players in the role of the Caped Crusader in a way that few games have done before. By presenting its own visual style and providing tons of fan service, Batman Arkham Asylum becomes one of the best comic-inspired games of this console generation.

SDCC 2011: Talia Al Ghul confirmed for Batman: Arkham City

EW got the scoop to reveal that Talia Al Ghul will be in the new game, Batman: Arkham City, the much anticipated sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum. I’m just going to quote the article because it sums everything up pretty well.

EW can exclusively confirm that Stana Katic, best known for playing Detective Kate Beckett on ABCís Castle, will voice the character of Talia al Ghul in the upcoming video game Batman: Arkham City, the follow-up to 2009?s much-beloved Batman: Arkham Asylum. Thereís no word yet on how Talia will figure into the gameís storyline. In the comics, Talia is the frequently conflicted daughter of Raís al Ghul, one of Batmanís archenemies. In spite of this, Talia is often a love interest for the Dark Knight. The two even get married at one point, with Talia giving birth to Batmanís son, Damian Wayne.

Katicís involvement in the game will be announced later today at a Comic-Con panel for Batman: Arkham City, which hits stores Oct. 18 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
