mk vs dc: batman’s the star!

Isn’t it quite obvious?  Midway/DC thinks that Batman is the star in MK vs DC!  Why else would he be at the forefront (and be the first one in those demo videos) of the game cover?  Supes is waaaaay in the back.

Plus, why is he suddenly paired up against Scorpion?  What happened to those teaser images/video?  The one where he’s getting beat up by Sub-Zero?

batman: arkham asylum game.

If you didn’t know, Batman, being the iconic character that he is, HAS NOT yet received the proper video game treatment.  A majority of previous bat-games has been reputed to be horrible examples of video game development.  (Batman and Robin, anyone?)

(Don’t believe me?  Check out AVGN Batman 1 & Batman part 2)

Mikko just sent me some images from the new Bat-game that’s being developed by Eidos and Rocksteady, entitled Batman: Arkham Asylum.  True, graphics are never in any way a promise of good gameplay, but seeing this?  It sure looks like their doing right by Batman.  Coming to the PS3, XBox360 and PC in 2009.

More screenies here.

dc universe online trailer.

With all the hype surrounding THAT other game with DC characters, it’s easy to overlook this other game in development.

It seems like they’re taking a Matrix Online approach — so instead of being any one of the members of the JLA, you’re this new up-and-coming hero who fights alongside Batman, Superman, etc.

The cool thing about it is, the overall creative director for this game is Jim Lee — so here’s your chance to see 3D representations of his work, in game form.

The video from here. The game’s myspace page here.

iron man.

“First blockbuster of the summer!” — but you knew that already.

This being Marvel Studios’ first live-action movie, the future’s looking good for them. Robert Downey Jr is an inspired choice for Tony Stark. Three-fourths of the movie is actually more Tony Stark than Iron man, which should say something about how interesting a frivolous industrialist’s life is. (It’s enough to turn non-fans to comicbook geeks. I’m looking to my right.) The suit’s looking good, and, since it reflects the modern version of Ironman’s armor in the comicbooks, I expected him to say “Register…” half the time.

My favorite part of the movie is the line, “next time, baby!” (You know what I’m talkin’ about.)

So yeah, see it, I guess. And, well, after the movie, I had this magical hankerin’ for some Burger King. 🙂

mk vs. dc – batman vs. sub-zero?!

For reals?! Well, apparently, MK 8 will be MK vs. DC. This preview trailer shows a video of Batman beating the iceblocks off Sub-Zero. Which raises a few questions, namely, you know, Batman being a mortal and Sub-Zero an undead mystical supernatural ninja-type — how would he do actual damage?! (These are things I geek about.) Well, Namco DID mix in Star Wars with Soul Calibur, so crossovers shouldn’t surprise me.

Plus, the game’s title will be … (wait for it…) Worlds Collide. Huh. So it took a decade to catch up with MvC? (Plus, comments like “DC won’t allow its heroes to kill…” meaning … an MK without fatalities?)

From the official website: http://www.worldscollide.com
Batman belongs to DC; MK and Sub-Zero belong to Midway Entertainment.
