Batman: Arkham Knight PlayStation 4 review

26 June 2015 12:08 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The final part of Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy is here, and it features a lot more Batmobile...

I think we can all agree that Batman: Arkham Origins was a bit of a misstep. It was decent, yes, but it did nothing for the series, and the content that what there was simply so-so. This is clearly not lost on original developer, Rocksteady, as the 'trilogy' is now at an end with the latest, and fourth game, Arkham Knight. Origins isn't counted, either due to its prequel status, or the fact is just wasn't as good. Whatever the case may be, here we have the culmination of Rocksteady's Batman vision, and possibly the best entry into the series yet.

H-bomb on wheels

Much has been made by Rocksteady of the major addition to Arkham Knight, and that's the Batmobile. With a world much lager in size than the previous games, Batman »

Video Games: 'The Joker' Returns In Epic New Trailer For Batman: Arkham Knight

15 June 2015 7:51 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Batman: Arkham Knight is the final installment in the Batman “Arkham” video game series, which began with Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, and a prequel title, Batman: Arkham Origins. The series will bring its trademark style to the Batmobile for the first time ever, giving players the option to either grapple above the streets of Gotham or tear through them in the armored behemoth (but let’s be honest, they’ll go with the latter). The Scarecrow, who hasn’t been seen since Arkham Asylum, will ascend as the game’s primary villain, along with the mysterious new Arkham Knight character. Kevin Conroy will once again bring The Dark Knight to life as the voice of Batman.   »

Celebrities Love Batman: Arkham Knight

12 June 2015 5:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Taking a new approach at marketing the Caped Crusader’s next interactive outing, Batman: Arkham Knight developer Rocksteady Games and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive employed the assistance of the game’s voice actors and other celebrities. The result is a video that combines some great-looking gameplay snippets with complimentary reactions, comments and exclamations from some familiar faces.

YouTube fans will recognize IJustine, while rap fans will recognize Wiz Khalifa, who’s also prominently featured here. They’re joined by Neil Patrick Harris, Breckin Meyer, Minka Kelly, Kumail Nanjiani and, of course, both Troy Baker and Kevin Conroy. They all seem very impressed with the final result, but that’s not surprising given the nature of the video as well as Rocksteady’s stellar track record with the Batman license.

Enjoy, then make sure to stay tuned for more information pertaining to Batman: Arkham Knight as we approach its June 23rd launch date. »

Wiz Khalifa Is a Natural at Batman: Arkham Knight

12 June 2015 12:28 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

To promote Batman: Arkham Knight, SNL's Taran Killam rounded up a bunch of celebs and made them play the game. Neil Patrick Harris, Wiz Khalifa, Blake Anderson, Minka Kelly, Kumail Nanjiani, Breckin Meyer, Joe Manganiello, iJustine, Troy Baker, and Kevin Conroy are all on deck — some better gamers than others. The best is hands down Wiz, who has major skills as well as his own sound effects (actually, I guess it's unclear if he's doing sound effects or trying to get Fetty Wap's attention). He just makes virtual crime-fighting look so effortless and graceful. More important, though, the game (out June 23) looks divine. »

Batman: Arkham Knight Takes Neil Patrick Harris and Other Celebrities to Gotham

11 June 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Batman: Arkham Knight will soon be upon us (I’m still on the fence about whether or not to pre-order it), but in the meantime, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Rocksteady Studios are bringing in the celebrity endorsements for a new trailer directed by Saturday Night Live’s Taran Killam. In the video, we see Neil Patrick Harris, Wiz Khalifa, Blake Anderson, Minka Kelly, Kumail Nanjiani, Breckin Meyer, Joe Manganiello, iJustine, Troy Baker, and Kevin Conroy “Be the Batman”, although only one name on that list has actually been the goddamn Batman. But everyone else can play pretend and still enjoy what looks like a fun game, although is it good enough to warrant a purchase, especially if, like me, you’d have to get a next-gen system? How badly do I want to play a game that feels the need to cram in Riddler time trials for the Batmobile? »

Ed Catto: The Batman Nobody Knows… Yours

1 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

One of the marketing trends today is for consumers to take a brand and make it their own. An example is the phenomenon of customizing phones. I’m sure that just about everyone you know has selected a cellphone case so that their phone has really become their phone. And a few years ago, I had a role in a Kia Soul marketing campaign. The big idea was that you, as a car owner, could customize the Soul in whatever way worked best for you. And there’s more of this brand customization in the future. Centennials, the group that comes after Millennials, are even more passionate about personalizing brands.

Geek Culture’s passionate fans already have their own personalized visions of popular entertainment brands and characters. They are a finicky bunch, especially when it comes to change. Long gone are the days when they blindly accepted reboots or revisions »

Review: How to be a Superhero

How to be a Superhero

By Mark Edlitz

Bear Manor Media, 586 pages, $42.95/$29.95

Longtime readers of pop culture magazines have no doubt read interviews with actors who have donned capes, cowls, spandex, and prosthetics to portray heroes and villains drawn from comic books. I certainly was involved in my fair share of such interviews working at Starlog Press and its successors have continued, especially contemporary online outlets which are enjoying a bonanza of options.

Most of those interviews tend to be about the most immediate project with little insight or context about an actor’s association with a media property or being the latest in a long line to play the same role. And certainly, these interviews are sandwiched between news, features, and other topics. So, it’s a bit of a surprise that such a collection has not been attempted before.

Batman: Arkham Knight Gameplay Trailer: “Time to Go to War”

28 May 2015 8:07 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have released a new Batman: Arkham Knight gameplay trailer. The conclusion of Rocksteady’s Arkham Trilogy has Batman (voiced by Kevin Conroy) squaring off against Scarecrow (voiced by John Noble), who has gathered all of Batman’s living foes (no Joker this time, kids) to take down the Dark Knight once and for all. This new trailer quickly covers a lot of ground by showing a mix of the slightly upgraded aspects like combat and flight mixed with the game’s big new feature, the Batmobile. This video gives us a good sense of how it will be used in combat, and I like how it has different weapons as well as the ability to strafe. As I’ve said before, vehicle controls can be tough, but if Rocksteady has figured out how to handle the Batmobile, it could be a big asset to the game. »

Gotham Gets The Live-Action Treatment In Latest Batman: Arkham Knight Trailer

21 May 2015 10:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With little over a month until The Caped Crusader’s anticipated return, Rocksteady’s marketing campaign for Batman: Arkham Knight is beginning to reach its almighty crescendo. After detailing the threequel’s intriguing Dual Play mechanic last week, the studio has given Gotham the live-action treatment in the latest trailer, giving the franchise’s ardent fanbase an opportunity to “Be the Batman.”

Playing out from different perspectives across the crime-ridden city, the footage essentially runs down the characteristics of The Word’s Greatest Detective: Selfless, determined, courageous and feared. And while it’s all very over-the-top and not indicative of the final product, it’s still a neat package to garner excitement for Arkham Knight‘s debut in a month’s time.

Billed as the conclusive chapter in Rocksteady’s acclaimed series, Batman: Arkham Knight will orbit around a villainous army of crooks assembled by Jonathan Crane’s Scarecrow; a »

Batman And Nightwing Confront Gotham’s Goons In Batman: Arkham Knight Dual Play Trailer

15 May 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though many assumed it signalled the introduction of co-op support at first, Rocksteady’s novel Dual Play mechanic allows players to control multiple characters throughout the course of combat in Batman: Arkham Knight, and it’s a feature that takes center stage in the threequel’s latest trailer.

Starring Batman and Nightwing, the footage comes as part of the studio’s Arkham Insider video series. Before today, the creative team merely hinted at the aforementioned mechanic, but now, they’re diving in unabated. Narrated by Lead AI Programmer Tim Hanagan, the video showcases the ways in which players will be able to team up with fellow crime fighters in order to execute powerful double takedowns. The Arkham series is lauded for its excellent, overly satisfying fighting system, and we’re hoping this novel addition only bolsters that reputation.

Batman Facts: 25 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Dark Knight

1 May 2015 3:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Happy Batman Day, everyone! Around the world, May 1st may mark a spring holiday, but here, it marks the first appearance of the Dark Knight, in Detective Comics No. 27, in 1939.

For the past 76 years, the Caped Crusader has been fighting Gotham City evildoers in comic books, movies, TV shows, and pretty much anywhere else you can shine a Bat-signal. Throughout the years, Bruce Wayne's alter ego has gone through many incarnations, not just in actors (from Adam West to Michael Keaton to Christian Bale to Ben Affleck, among the many), but also in character, from haunted avenger to squeaky-clean do-gooder to campy clown to kinky prowler to world-weary fighter. He's due for yet another change this week, with the releases of DC's Batman No. 40 -- in which Bruce Wayne and the Joker finally kill each other (or do they?) and a special issue of DC's Divergence, where an undisclosed character »
