LEGO Marvel’s Avengers trailer debuts

Lego is adding a new game, LEGO Marvel's Avengers, to its roster of adorable games that are fun for all ages. Lego branched into video games a long time ago with its LEGO Star Wars series. Since then, the Lego universe's partnership with Traveler's Tales has expanded to include popular characters such as Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and of course super heroes. Lego has had a field day with its superhero themed games, releasing three Batman: DC Superheroes games and a previous Marvel Super Heroes game.

Nanoblock teams with McDonald’s, makes food-themed sets

Nanoblock has teamed up with McDonald's in Hong Kong specifically to introduce some miniature food-themed Nanoblock sets. The sets are available for purchase at the McDonald's stores, and it's not clear if there's any plans to introduce the sets in other regions. There are several of them, and they -- as you'd expect, given the partnership -- are designed after some of the fast food chain's own food offerings. Only, they actually look tasty. They've turned out to be a hit among consumers.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Review

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Review

When we saw the NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X, we knew it was only a matter of time before the company brought heat to the slightly more pocket-friendly segment. For gamers that want top-of-the-line performance without dropping a thousand bucks on a GPU, there's the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti. This card takes the $650 spot in NVIDIA's lineup, carving out a place for itself with 6GB of GDDR5 RAM, 2816 CUDA cores, and and the same clock speeds as the king Titan X. With just 8% less CUDA goodness than the $1k X, you're getting this card for a whole lot cheaper.

GameFly announces new game streaming service for Amazon Fire TV

GameFly announces new game streaming service for Amazon Fire TV

GameFly, the video game rent-by-mail service, has long been compared to Netflix, at least, back when they mailed us DVDs. Now the company has made a new step towards becoming the gaming equivalent of the Netflix that focuses on streaming. Along with announcing their acquisition of Playcast, GameFly is launching a new game streaming service exclusively on Amazon's Fire TV. And they're not talking about the kind of games you'd find a smartphone, but big-name titles including the Batman Arkham series, Hitman, Darksiders, Red Faction, and games from the various LEGO franchises.

NVIDIA GRID calls dibs on 1080p60 game streaming

NVIDIA GRID calls dibs on 1080p60 game streaming

If some of the major companies in the gaming industry are to be believed, rentingstreaming games over the Internet is the future. Or at least the distant future. But while that type of business promises no downloads and no installs, it partly sacrifices quality on the altar of convenience. At least until today. NVIDIA is understandably proud to claim that it is the first in this part of the gaming industry, which admittedly doesn't have much key players yet, to offer game streaming in Full HD quality at smooth 60 fps rates on its GRID games on demand service.

Six months of Arkham Knight DLC will run you $40, season pass incoming

In that case, there's always the Batman: Arkham Knight PS4 Bundle.

Hulkbuster high chair makes dinner time unbeatable

Hulkbuster high chair makes dinner time unbeatable

There are a few different teams out there that spend their time creating fascinating versions of popular fictional items and movie props, and one such team is the folks behind Super-Fan Builds. We previously saw them create a version of the Batman tumbler vehicle as perhaps the most unique stroller ever, and now they're back with another build for a toddler -- this time, though, they've set their sights on Iron Man, specifically on the giant Hulkbuster suit.

First look at Jared Leto’s Joker from Suicide Squad

First look at Jared Leto’s Joker from Suicide Squad

The director of the forthcoming movie Suicide Squad, about a group of DC comics supervillains sent on a special mission by the government, tweeted a photo of Jared Leto on Friday giving us our first look at the actor's take on the Joker. The last time we saw Batman's arch-nemesis on film was when he was played by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight. This new look gives the impression of a villain just as terrifying, but also unique from the previous portrayal.

Lane Splitter car concept transforms into a pair of motorcycles

Lane Splitter car concept transforms into a pair of motorcycles

If you’ve ever dreamed of pretending you’re Batman and splitting your car off into a functional motorcycle, that dream has just gotten a little more real. It’s a concept called the Lane Splitter, and when assembled together it functions as a car. When a couple people need to use it, however, it splits into two motorcycles, giving one a way to let their hair down when appropriate and to avoid the rain those other times. Unfortunately, however, it remains only a fanciful concept at this point.

Designer makes (nearly) combat-ready Batsuit

Designer makes (nearly) combat-ready Batsuit

If you dream of spending your nights prowling the streets on the lookout for ne'er-do-wells, those dreams just got a little more real (but still aren't advisable): a designer has created a Batsuit that is able to withstand the combat situations a real-life Batman might get himself into, including assaults with blades and punches to the body. It isn't quite as stylish as the latest theatrical Batman suit, and you're not going to be repelling down buildings with it, but it is impressive nonetheless.
