Injustice: It’s not another MK v DC Universe
For one thing, it has Batman!

Upon arriving at Warner Bros booth to check out Injustice: Gods Among Us which is being developed by Netherrealm Studios, my expectations had not been set.
I had a completely open mind, ready for whatever they had to throw at me.
I spent the next 20-30 minute sitting with no prior knowledge about this game apart from the fact that it’s set in the DC Universe and it’s the second DC fighting game developed by Netherrealm Studios.
Injustice: Ready…fight! This way

OXCGN’s Batman: Arkham City Review
An Impeccable Successor
©2011 Nicholas Laborde
Never in my life have I been a comic book fan, and the same goes for their heroes.
That’s not to say I don’t enjoy media related to these valiant costumed men and women, but at the end of the day, I enjoy them for what they are: entertainment.
Batman: Arkham Asylum drew me in as an action-adventure title with stealth elements, vaguely reminiscent of the glory days of Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Engaging gameplay, tons of gadgets, and the simple fact that I could sneak through most of the game was vastly appealing; at the core, I didn’t care that it was about Batman.
Batman: Arkham City is the direct sequel to Arkham Asylum, and it’s an impeccable successor to a nearly impeccable game, building upon everything that you know and love about the original.
Holy Halloween Bat-review Batman! here

©2011 Nicholas Laborde
According to a fan who visited Valve‘s offices, the next Team Fortress 2 Meet The Team video will star the Medic, and it’s coming sooner rather than later.
While at the Valve headquarters, the extremely lucky fan got to see an unfinished version of the Meet The Medic video, along with some DOTA 2.
The breakdown of the fan’s once-in-a-lifetime experience can be found here, where he eagerly recapped the events of that day on the Steam forums.
His words exactly regarding the “Meet The Medic” video:
“I’ve seen it and it’s 100% real. It’s about 80-90% done, and will be released ‘soon’.”

I’m sure a lot of you already reading this have Batman: Arkham Asylum by now on your console of choice (PC gamers need to wait another few weeks).
I’m also sure there are a lot of you out there who have held off on Batman, for a number of reasons: maybe you’re not a Batman fan, maybe you’re saving for other big hitters like Halo ODST and Uncharted 2, or maybe you’re just sitting on the fence waiting to see what people really think when the hype has died down.
That’s why I’m going to do this review in a different way: reasons you should buy Batman: AA and reasons you shouldn’t. There’s also a small section about the differences between console / PC versions at the end.
First, a bit of background info. Arkham Asylum is developed by the relatively unknown Rocksteady Studios, makers of…uh…Urban Chaos: Riot Response last gen. And that’s it.
