The Lego Ninjago Movie Videogame is short and a little rough, but a dynamic new combat system and a couple surprising tweaks to aging mechanics make it one of the most exciting new Lego games in years.
The fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us gave us a world torn apart by conflict between between two of comics’ greatest heroes. Now brutal murderer Superman and “I don’t want to fight you” Batman are back, joining forces against the most diabolical foe the DC Universe has ever faced—loot boxes.
Did you ever draw different costumes for Superman, Wonder Woman, or Cyborg in your Social Studies notebook? Yeah, me too. The upcoming Injustice 2 video game sort of lets you do the same thing, including a Dark Knight that looks like he’s wearing Mandalorian battle armor.
Things aren’t looking so good for one member of the Justice League in this teaser for the DC Comics-based fighting game. The hero in question is someone who’s died in the comics but later came back. Really narrows it down, huh?
Bane’s bodybuilding poses make me think he’s constantly humming Right Said Fred’s “Too Sexy” to himself. And when he gets to the “so sexy it hurts” part, that’s when he breaks your back.
Aw, look, little baby Kal-El, Isn’t he cute? Too bad he’s going to grow up to be a murderous despot who beats up all his friends and takes over his adopted homeworld.
Hmm, maybe Peter Parker and Barbara Ann Minerva had the same martial arts sensei?
This new Injustice 2 trailer is all about Firestorm, which, y’know, great. Big fan of the Nuclear Man here. But one of the moments in the new teaser has me asking questions about one of Batman’s arch-foes.
“How many more innocent people die before you accept that some lives need to be taken?!” That’s Superman yelling at (presumably) Batman in the newest Injustice 2 trailer. Guess the Man of Steel doesn’t think the Dark Knight is quite dark enough.
In the latest teaser for LEGO Dimensions’ season two content, the girl from Krypton introduces us to a stranded alien botanist in search of a phone. Perhaps there is one in that odd blue box.
Gandalf, Batman and Wildstyle walk into the Aperture Science Enrichment Center. Stop me if you’ve heard this one.
Batman: Arkham Knight sets up from the beginning to be one of the best Batman stories out there—and then it falls flat at every key moment.
Master Bruce isn’t here right now. But Alfred Pennyworth is more than happy to take out Gotham’s trash.
I’ve been waiting a long time to play as Batgirl in a modern video game. Now the chance has arrived in the form of a new add-on for the latest Batman title. Is it what I wanted? Not really.
You might celebrate a video game for its gameplay, graphics, or its story, but let’s briefly celebrate the excellent little things Batman: Arkham Knight does to respect the time of its players. Oh, if only more modern games did these things.
One of the biggest hits at this year's Comic-Con International was the fresh look at Mad Max: Fury Road, the new take on George Miller's classic dystopian opus. With all the buzz around the new trailer, it's a good time to remind ourselves that there's going to be a game set in the same grungy future wasteland.
After weeks of teasing from series co-creator Ed Boon, today the name of the next game in the legendary fighting game series has been revealed: Mortal Kombat X. Update 11:20 — added platforms and gameplay details from the official press release.
Is the Lego Movie Videogame for you? It probably is if you can bring yourself to enjoy the following politically-controversial, looping video:
What took so long? I'm not talking about a LEGO Marvel game. LEGO getting the Marvel license is a relatively new development, all things considered. They announced it in 2011, video game in 2013 — that's fairly quick turnaround for a game as massive in scope as LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.
When Stephen saw it or, rather, heard it, Mad Max's characters had no Australian accents and developers Avalanche Studios had no plans to include them, upsetting Mad Max devotees of all national origins. That posture has been officially reversed.
