Why 13 years later, Arkham Asylum is still the best Batman game

The worst day of my life was at EGX about 4 years ago. Nestled in the retro area of the exhibition hall in front of a row of black, plasticy LCD TVs sat a young boy of about 10 years old. Interested in what was passing for retro in this modern era, I hung around for a minute as the loading bar finished spinning and what I saw filled me with hollow, existential dread. Next to the Pac-Man cabinets and CRTs with Super Mario Bros and Sonic the Hedgehog flickering on their screens, the kid wasn’t playing Arkanoid, or Asteroid,…

Don’t expect a Mortal Kombat 12 announcement at EVO 2022

Because Ed Boone said so. Those hoping for a Mortal Kombat 12 announcement at EVO 2022 should curb their expectations. That’s because series creator Ed Boone has said as much. Instead, says Boone, the spotlight belongs to other fighting games during the tournament. “It’s time for Street Fighter and other great fighting games to be in the sun,” he said. “Let’s enjoy that.” The last game in the Mortal Kombat series was released in 2019. The eleventh main installment in the series, Netherrealm Studios enhanced the game with the 2020 expansion, Aftermath. The extra content included an additional story mode,…

It sure looks like MultiVersus is teasing something from The Lord of the Rings

A suspicious tweet has people wondering if they’ve spotted the Eye of Sauron. A recent tweet from the official MultiVersus Twitter account has fans speculating that characters from The Lord of the Rings are set to make an appearance. Late last week (July 8), the MultiVersus Twitter account put out a tweet comparing the two versions of the stage Trophy’s E.D.G.E. And some eagle eyed Twitter users honed in on a strange part of Trophy’s E.D.G.E. where there’s a reflection of what looks to be the Eye of Sauron in the water. It’s pretty easy to miss, but on closer…

Skyrim mod brings Shadow of Mordor’s brilliant Nemesis system to Tamriel

The mod is currently a work-in-progress, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor’s best feature was easily the nemesis system, and an upcoming mod seeks to add it to Skyrim. If you’re unfamiliar with Nemesis system, it works like this: enemies will remember the players actions, such as whether you had previously killed them or been killed by them, allowing them to move up and down the hierarchy. Get beat by a grunt often enough and it could work their way up the ladder, and they will bully you for constantly dying too. And now modder Syclonix seeks to add a similar system…
