Next RockSteady Studios’ game will be a Batman prequel


Come 2014, there will be a new RockSteady Studios’ game that will probably be one of the most highly-anticipated games of the year. The new tile will in fact be a prequel that includes Batman and the DC Universe’s Justice League. As such, it’ll be set before the events of RockSteady’s previous games, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. A main event that will be highlighted is the formation of the Justice League which is headed by the Dark Knight himself. In addition, it will provide insight between the Batman and Joker and their first encounter with each other. The upcoming game will not be available until 2014 at the earliest, because the game will be developed for the next generation of consoles.

Steam Summer Sale will bring Indie Bundles each day


Everyone’s practically awaiting the Steam Summer Sale. I know I am. I have a bunch of games I’d like to try out, but not pay $30 something for them. During the Steam Summer Sale, there will be plenty of bundles on sale, especially indie bundles. There will be an Indie bundle each day of the two week sale. Of course, there will also be publisher packs on sale as well as franchise packs. Take a look below at the Indie game bundles and the confirmed packs. Indie Bundle Day 4 looks like a great one, despite I already have S:S&S EP.

Amazing Spider-Man will release later on PC


For some reason and with no explanation at all, Activision’s The Amazing Spider-Man game will arrive on PC in August. The game will be over a month late compared to the launch for the Xbox 360, PS3, 3DS, DS, and Wii versions that will hit stores this Friday. Perhaps the halted launch is due to The Amazing Spider-Man being available on Steam on August 10th, oh and with Steam Achievements. Who knows, hopefully they’ll be be enhancing the game and making it the best it should be, at least that’s what I’d like to think whenever there’s a PC game version release date delay. It seems inevitable that most PC releases get hit with the delay bug. However, the Spider-Man game has been compared to Batman: Arkham City, which is a pretty nice statement.

Until the PC release, you can always watch the film that appears in theatres on July 3rd next week.

Warner Bros. developing Batman: Arkham City – Armored Edition


Warner Bros. will be releasing a new Batman: Arkham City edition game. This one’s called the Armored Edition. The new edition will give Batman a swanky new armor suit and the new B.A.T. mode will allow players to deal more damage after doing successful attacks. Batman: Arkham City – Armored Edition is being developed by WB studios in Montreal and Burbank rather than Rocksteady Studios. Also the Armored Edition will be available for Wii U and additionally allows players to use the batarang and simultaneously blow up explosives.

Square Enix releases new Sleeping Dogs 101 trailer as the game’s release is just less than three months away


Square Enix has released a new trailer for a game I’m highly anticipating and I’m sure many others are, Sleeping Dogs. This game is scheduled to release on August 14th for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

If you don’t know anything about the game, well here’s some information. This game was originally titled True Crime: Hong Kong back in 2009. It was supposed to be the third installment of the True Crime series and a rework title. However last year, Activision canceled the game due to the high budget and development delays as well as the belief that the game just wouldn’t sell. Instead Square Enix saw something special in the game and received the publishing rights six months later after Activision’s plans fell through; however obviously they did not use the series name True Crime.

Now reworked under Square Enix’s eye, the game has received tons of new trailers recently showcasing the gameplay and the martial arts as its mainstay. The soon-to-be-released game highlights a brightly lit up Hong Kong at night as you take control of the protagonist, Wei Shen. Wei Shen is an undercover cop, who attempts to infiltrate the Triad, one of Hong Kong’s most notorious gangs. The Triad organization he must infiltrate is named Sun On Yee, which references to the real-life Triad gang Sun Yee On. As Wei Shen, you can free roam around the city of Hong Kong and beat down on tons of people using much of the city’s items at your disposal. Got an air vent behind you? Just dodge out of the way of your opponent’s attacks or take him by his clothes and shove him in there. Got a burning gas stove in the room? No problem, just put the fire out with your opponent’s face. Much of the game has unique fighting finishers and as you play throughout it, you may also level Wei Shen’s abilities and Face XP, Police XP, and Triad XP. In addition, you will be able to purchase clothes that will help you along the way.

The game’s combat style is similar to that of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City and the bullet time features are reminiscent of Max Payne. While the free running aspect of the game is similar to the Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed, the open world/free roam and quests are similar to Grand Theft Auto. The game is an extremely well-thought out and well-developed melting pot of the best features in video games today.

Check out the trailer below and if you are interested, you can pre-purchase it on Steam for $44.99 (10% off discount) and you’ll receive the following extras: “upgraded to the Limited Edition for free and two exclusive DLC packs” (DSO Gaming). You may additionally pre-order the game from Amazon, Best Buy, or Gamestop; however be aware the pre-order bonuses ARE NOT available for PC gamers. Instead Square Enix has stated they’ll release a PC-exclusive for the digital download of the game.

If you pre-order the game from Amazon, you’ll receive these pre-order bonuses: Martial Arts Pack, which includes a Shaolin Showdown mission, Shaolin Warrior outfit (with increased striking damage), Bonus Triad XP points, and Wing Chun decoration for your safe house.

If you pre-order the game from Best Buy, you’ll receive the “exclusive George St. Pierre Pack, which allows you to use the outfit, T-shirt, headband and shorts to harness the powerful talents and strengths of the world-class fighter”.

If you pre-order from Gamestop, you’ll get “Police Protection Pack, which includes an exclusive mission, vehicle and weapon. The “High Speed” Mission lets you join the Hong Kong Police Department SWAT Unit in an all out street war with the Triads. Swerve through traffic, explosions and gun fire as you chase down your targets in an exclusive Swat Police Car. With The Police Protection Pack Assault Rifle you can take your enemies out with either a single shot, or a spray of bullets”.
