New Batman: Arkham City trailer!

16 Mar

The trailer for the sequel to my favorite super-hero game of all time, Batman: Arkham Asylum, is out! This time the action leaves the confines of Arkham Island and now plays out in a city-sized map. At least, that’s what the folks behind Batman: Arkham City promise!

Not only was Arkham Asylum one of the best stealth / action games of all time, it was one of the best Batman incarnations of any medium. This Batman may be considered an extension of the one we saw in Batman The Animated Series and Justice League cartoons, complete with voice talents of Kevin Conroy as the Batman and Mark Hamill as the Joker.

Can’t wait to get my hands on this sequel!

Batman: Arkham City will be released on 18 October 2011.

City of Heroes: Going Rogue goes live

17 Aug

Great assets are what keeps COH players loyal.

Massively multiplayer online role-playing game City of Heroes unveils today what it heralds as its most ambitious expansion to date: Going Rogue. While I haven’t had a chance to dive into it yet, Going Rogue is an example of why I’ve remained a fan since 2004.

City of Heroes may have never had the following anywhere near the size of World of Warcraft but that’s exactly what I love about it. Unlike most fantasy-based MMOs out there – and there are a ton of them – in COH I no longer get the feeling that my character is running alongside some snot-nosed, 13-year old brat. The choice of costumes, the banter and cultural references reassure me that I’m playing with folks closer to my age group: 30s & 40s. And people who are – naturally – partial to comic books. But most of all, the COH team has succeeded where most games have failed: keeping the content fresh and constantly improving on what’s already an excellent product.

Here’s a little preview. More ongoing Rogue once I’ve had more time to play.
