Hooray! Batman: Arkham City is out today! Yes! Wait… You’re saying you’re weird and only have a PC, so you can’t join in on the fun? Well, that’s a shame. Don’t worry. Warner Bros. announced today that the PC version of Batman: Arkham City, which was delayed, will now come out exactly one month after its console brethren on November 18th.
Warner Bros. said the reason for the delay was to fix some bugs that were popping up in the PC version. Hopefully they got that all worked out, becasue the last thing Rocksteady would want to do is piss off Batman fans. Those people are hardcore.
This week on Lost Level… The bat weighs heavily on the minds of the crew. Will it live up to the hype that the reviews have created? Chris can’t wait to find out! G, Alex, and Chris discuss the multiplayer for Uncharted, as well as proper drink choices at Subway. G also discusses his thoughts on the demo for Uncharted.
This is a BIG games episode of The Lost Level, covering Uncharted, Batman, and Mass Effect. Also, find out who won the bet the guys had over the NPDs. Who won the first Guinness bet? Download and find out!
The videogame industry, much like Hollywood, is running out of ideas. So, what is their solution? HD remakes! Capcom officially put the rumors to rest by announcing the Devil May Cry HD Collection for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It will contain Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2, and Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition, and cost $40.
HD collections make sense for games like Metal Gear Solid or ICO, that have a very cinematic experience. But then you have games like Devil May Cry. Do you really need to see a white-haired metrosexual repeatedly hitting demons in the face with a sword in HD? I vote no, even though I do like the series. But this is why we’re getting the new DmC. So that we can experience a fresh version of the gameplay we love with more story that I can ignore.
Hey, remember how much fun you had playing that Shadowrun videogame from 2007? Of course you don’t! I’m sure many devoted fans of the somewhat popular cyberpunk RPG were disappointing in how it turned out. So hopefully Cliffhanger Productions will do things right this time with their announcement of Shadowrun Online, a free-to-play game that plays in your browser. It’s going to get rid of the first-person perspective and adopt a more tactical third-person isometric view, as you can see from the screen above(which is still and early build, mind you). If you’re interested in knowing more, there’s a laundry list of Q&As to look through.
So it’s Valentine’s Day, you’re with your significant other, and/or friend with benefits, and they want to go out for a nice romantic evening. Perhaps your idea of romance involves a little action. Luckily for you, John McClane is at it again! (What kind of action did you think I meant?) You now have plans to visit Moscow, because John’s son is in some trouble over there. Explain to your significant other, and/or friend with benefits that John just has to kill a bunch of people, and cause a ruckus for just a couple hours, but after that it’s back to quality time…
If that doesn’t sound apprealing to them, then you should question your relationship with your significant other, and/or friend with benefits. Life is way too short to Die Hard. (Get your mind out of the gutter.)
A Good Day to Die Hard opens Febuary 14, 2013.
Who would you like to see cast as John’s son? Let us know.
There are a few ways to be cool. You can have a lot of money, be good at sports, or do illegal things. Sadly, those options aren’t for everyone. That’s when people start to become hipsters. Microsoft understands this and in an attempt to attract the hipster crowd away their iPhones they are going to let you preview the new dashboard before other people can use it. This is the tech equivalent to listening to a band when they were “underground.” Major Nelson posted details about how to sign up for it. So register in the hopes that you can say ” oh, yeah. I used the dashboard before it became mainstream,” presumably with your nose stuck up into the air.
Game consoles that are bundled with a game has to be one of the greatest things ever. How often have you saved up cash to buy that new shiny console just to watch it collect dust, because you didn’t factor in that you need to buy a game with it as well and you spent the rest of your money on cocaine? If you’re like me, then it’s happened too many times.
Nintendo understands the pain of videogame withdrawal and is giving us a new bundle. Come October 23rd, you can get a black Wii console, a black Wii Remote Plus controller, a black Nunchuck controller, a copy of New Super Mario Bros., and a copy of said game’s soundtrack. You can pick up the bundle for $149.99 (or $150 if you’re smart and round up when you see that tricky 99¢). That is if you ignore sales taxes, because damn the man.
