The Riddler has always been my favorite villain in Batman. Well not always but basically since the animated series.
So you may remember the upcoming sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum. This game is titled Batman: Arkham City and it is due out this coming October and I really can’t wait. Mostly because it comes out next week!
I’m still a fan of the Batman: The Animated Series version of Mr. Freeze more than this one but they seem to have gotten the character down at least, and I admit, his suit and it’s capabilities seem pretty awesome. I suspect his section of the game will be a lot of fun to play.
I don’t actually know a lot about the film other than the trailer you see here. That and I know I want to see it. Here is a link to the news release I found the trailer at. Yay new zombie film!
An indie RPG/Adventure game with an awesome trailer. I understand the entire premise of the game is a pair of scientists delving into an old man’s memories in order to discover his fondest wish so they can give it to him before he dies. The graphics look excellent and there will be music by Laura Shigihara (featured in the trailer above). You can find more information about the game at its website here. The game is expected to be out sometime this fall.
Interesting looking platformer with a fun gimmick.
Not the smoothest trailer but one of the most comprehensive and clear trailers that explain what Deus Ex: Human Revolution is. A video game about a possible future. It comes out at the end of this month and I am very excited to try it out.
Produced by some of the people who did Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Scott Pilgrim vs The World (although it is not directed nor written by Edgar Wright, who did all three of those movies) it does star Nick Frost and Jodie Whittaker and looks somewhat hilarious.
It appears to have done a limited release in the US back in July so you may be able to scrounge around for this one.
A great trailer, but also a great example of the fears technological augmentation inspires. The rhetoric is also very common. “Unethical.” “Taking away our humanity.” The truth is that governments, corporations, any group or entity with power, can effect massive change in this way, regardless of the technology being introduced but augmentation, in some ways, is highly appealing as scapegoat for the exploration of technological process gone wrong because it is so personal. Your limbs, your eyes, your mind.
I believe in human augmentation. I also believe that letting it be controlled, letting the creators have that much control over it, is not the way. Just like any other major technology: Firearms, Computers, The Internet. Ethical use will offer humanity so much.
This game is going to be awesome.
The next major animated Disney movie and I admit it looks awesome.
A movie, with a budget, whose entire premise is “What if larpers stumbled onto real magic and it tried eat them?” I’m going to see this even if it didn’t have Danny Pudi and Summer Glau. Here is the movie’s website.
