    Driven for speed

    Spy Hunter will drift onto the PlayStation Vita this October, publisher Warner Bros has announced.

Visually the game’s looking weak, but as humongous fans of...

  • News Warner Bros Constructs New LEGO Lord of the Rings Trailer

    Bricking it

    Warner Bros has kicked off GamesCom in style, releasing a brand new cinematic trailer for, er, LEGO Lord of the Rings. Yes, the bricks are back in town once again. In truth, the video’s clumsy overacting is actually kind of amusing. We still don’t give a toss about Lord of the Rings, though. The title's due out on PlayStation 3 and...

  • News Watch Nightwing Impale Wonder Woman in New Injustice Trailer

    Not very neighbourly

    We’re not entirely sure why the heroes of the DC Universe are so mad at each other in NetherRealm's upcoming Injustice: Gods Among Us, but boy are they fuming. This brand new Comic-Con trailer focuses on newcomers Cyborg and Nightwing – the latter of which is shown stabbing his staff straight into the stomach of Wonder...

  • News June NPD: LEGO Batman 2 Tops, Industry Sales Drop

    Holy great performance, Batman!

    Not content with dominating the charts across the pond, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes has also topped the North American best-sellers for the month of June. But while developer Traveller’s Tales will be cracking open the champagne in celebration, the rest of the sector won’t be quite so enthusiastic. The entire...

    New challengers

    Comic book “favourites” Nightwing and Cyborg are officially joining the roster of NetherRealm’s upcoming superhero brawler, Injustice: Gods Among Us.

  • News LEGO Batman 2 Launch Trailer Gets Down to Business

    "Er... Where's your car?"

    We were mighty sceptical of Traveller’s Tales’ decision to add voices to LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, but the developer is slowly beginning to win us over. This launch trailer is packed with laugh out loud moments, thanks to some fantastic dialogue and brilliant voice acting. The blockbuster sequel’s due out this...

  • News Watch This Bonkers Lollipop Chainsaw Launch Trailer

    Super sweet

    At one point in this Lollipop Chainsaw launch trailer, protagonist Juliet Starling cuts a UFO in half. That’s pretty weird – but we should probably point out that the alien space shuttle is being piloted by an undead funkster who laments his mortality through an autotune module. Brilliant. Fix your eyeballs on the video below for a...

  • News LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Trailer Gets Chatty

    Motormouth

    If you’re still a little nervous about Traveller’s Tales adding voice actors to its LEGO games, then this LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes trailer should help to settle your nerves. Judging from the footage, it looks like the developer’s done an excellent job of integrating the dialogue without detracting from the slapstick sense of...

  • News LEGO Batman 2 Trailer Introduces Open World

    Blocky

    Yes, yes, we know: another LEGO game. But LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is no average block buster, as it introduces an open world setting for the very first time.

  • News Gotham City Impostors Takes a Trip to Arkham Asylum

    Dress up

    For the record, this free new map for Gotham City Impostors doesn’t appear to have much to do with Rocksteady’s brilliant Batman: Arkham Asylum. Instead, it is simply a new location for people who think they’re Batman to shoot at people dressed as the Joker. Honestly, if you’re dressing like superheroes and it’s not fancy dress...

  • News Dive into the Twisted Mind of Lollipop Chainsaw's Suda 51

    Mad men

    It takes a certain kind of genius to create a game as crazy as Lollipop Chainsaw, and this behind the scenes video does its best to expose that. In the trailer, Suda 51 talks a little about the game’s inspirations and his desire to create a different kind of zombie game. Writer James Gunn is also on-hand to explain some of the title’s...

  • News Meet Lollipop Chainsaw's Starling Sisters

    Co-Starlings

    Warner Bros has released a brand new trailer introducing Juliet Starling’s zombie-slaying siblings in Lollipop Chainsaw.

Swiftly smash the “Play” button below and you’ll be...

  • News New Arkham City DLC Focuses on Robin and Harley Quinn

    Our favourite clown cosplay

    We’d pay good money to spend an extra couple of hours, er, investigating Batman: Arkham City’s interpretation of Harley Quinn.
