Amazon, no stranger to controversy, has stopped taking pre-orders of Warner Bros. movies, including the much-anticipated The LEGO Movie. If this tune sounds familiar, it's because it is: Amazon has recently done the same with publisher Hachette, flexing its retailer muscle in a bid for better deals.
It’s time again to get involved with a Telltale Games title, this time rolling with "A Crooked Mile," the third installment in The Wolf Among Us adventure game series. This game continues to build on the legend of the series aesthetically, bringing back super-charged graphics that aim to be gorgeous instead of realistic.
Today the folks at WB Games have revealed a number of new renders made for Batman: Arkham Knight. Inside this release you’ll find a new villain, one that aims to match Batman in abilities as well as looks - make no mistake: this isn’t Batman, it’s a brand new villain called "Arkham Knight".
We may be living in an age when LucasArts is dead, but EA Games are not about to let the Star Wars gaming universe fall to the wayside. This week it’s been stated by Andrew Wilson, Chief Executive Officer of Electronic Arts (EA), that they’d be pushing forth with a new model for the Star Wars gaming universe. Much as Batman’s gaming presence was made a formidable force with the "Arkham" series of games, so too will Star Wars be reborn in EA’s first title.
If you’re all about the multiple-universe action pushed in the DC Comics Infinite Crisis comic series - or you just like free Open Beta games in general - today there’s a MOBA you’re going to want to peek at. This game goes by the name Infinite Crisis (of course), and has been released by the developers at Turbine and distributed by the folks at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. You’ll be able to play this game - provided you’ve got the prerequisite powerful PC - right after you hit the download button.
The final chapter in the Arkham series of Batman games is upon us, and it would appear that it’s going to be the most classic of the bunch. In that we’re not relegated to Arkham Asylum, or to a tinier city of Arkham inmates, or thrown back in time to Batman Year Two, here in Arkham Knight we’re playing as Batman in his prime. WB Games will be distributing this title while Rocksteady is behind the wheel with development.
Supposing you’ve not dismissed this title as another tried-and-failed movie-to-game translation, you’ll be glad to know what The LEGO Movie Videogame is just about as smooth a delivery as we’ve ever experienced. Having both the previous (rather successful) Lego video games to live up to and the (wildly successful) Lego movie to live up to, this game isn't attempting to be a stand-alone game without movie influence. Instead, The LEGO Movie Videogame attempts to be an extension of the movie universe - and it does so with flying colors.
If the first thing that crosses your mind is, "How can a movie be made from Minecraft?", take note that many asked the same thing about a LEGO movie. Warner Bros. has recently acquired the rights for Minecraft from its developer Mojang AB, and has tapped The LEGO Movie producer Roy Lee to produce the next block-centric (hopeful) cinematic hit.
Warner Bros.' upcoming science-fiction action flick "Edge of Tomorrow" has made its Internet debut with the release of its first trailer. Previously known by the name "All You Need is Kill", Edge of Tomorrow stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, and brings to the stage some mech-suited futuristic battle goodness, and just a taste of Groundhog Day deja vu.
