The one where GaR speaks on the topic of Katy Perry, only briefly though.
No longer Batman: Arkham Asylum 2, the new game by Rocksteady Studios is now called Batman: Arkham City. It doesn’t seem to have the same ring to it, but with more Batman on offer, what is there to hate?
Arkham City is actually a fortified city within Gotham City. It also looks like Catwoman will be making an apperance. Still have a while to wait however, Batman won’t be beating up thugs and villains until late 2011.
Lionhead have released the opening to Fable III for all to see — well people with YouTube access anyway. This cinematic doesn’t tell the story of your own Fable character, not even of a human, but the story of a chicken. While Fable II had its own bird, it didn’t have an iota of personality that this fowl has.
Pixar-esque in its presentation, no matter what you think of the Fable franchise, it’s an enjoyable III minutes of your time.
EA is almost Linkin Park’s new label. Not only does this Medal of Honor trailer feature the new Linkin Park song, “The Catalyst”, but the video itself is also directed by Linkin Park’s DJ. Yeah…
The trailer is a mix of live action and gameplay, and it’s a little disconcerting. But overall it’s a decent watch, and there’s that bearded fellow from the game box!
The Sorbet is churning so there isn’t any reason why I can’t post this now, it might mean that there is a gap between this and next weeks podcast as I am going up to Auckland on a secret mission involving infiltrating the competition enemy. I think GaR and Wugga might be holding replacement interviews in the interim.
The Sam & Max franchise continues to be Telltale’s longest running series – now in its third season. This review is about episode four in The Devil’s Playhouse. It’s a chilling title for a series built on the funnies, but I can assure you the comedy is still well intact. And the supernatural is ever more pervasive. In the first season we had Abraham Lincoln’s statue come to life and mind control devices. Now we have ghosts, clones, psychic toys, and beings from other dimensions.
There’s just something about Lego that appeals to our inner child. Objects, worlds, and even people made out of tiny little plastic bricks. The Lego themed videogame is now a standard. It was something that didn’t exist five years ago, until Traveller’s Tales secured the rights to Lego Star Wars.
Since then we’ve had Indiana Jones, Batman, and even Rock Band turn to Lego. Sure we’ve had Lego games before, but nothing like this. The Lego games are family friendly – popular with adults and kids alike. So it wasn’t much of a stretch to tie in Harry Potter, and bring some of those Lego wizards to life. I’m still waiting on Lego Lord of the Rings by the way.
It feels like only yesterday Dragon Age hit store shelves, but here is BioWare to announce Dragon Age 2 for release in March 2011. Featuring more dragons, and other such RPG shenanigans.
Trailer incoming on the 17th of August.
If the last few podcasts have been a little too long then this one is probably just about right for you. Void of any real content, except for me trying to Vuvuzelerize the ButtonMasher Podcast experience.
It makes real music, it’s also the lead, and only instrument in the ButtonMasher marching band.
