New Batman: Arkham Asylum coming up!

Now this is some good news! Rocksteady will be in charge of the sequel of their Batman: Arkham Asylum. This time around it seems that the whole city has turned into an Asylum and Joker is back again behind it all (Mark Hamill will be him again!). Good news.


New Star Wars game revealed

The Force Unleashed 2 will finally be the Star Wars game which was to be announced. It seems Starkiller is back (how will they ever link it to the first game I don’t know) with a dual lightsaber wield.

After the relative disapointment which the first one meant (the best sold Star Wars game yet) a lot has to be done to get this game to be what it was meant to be. Many were hoping for a new IP or for Battlefront 3 but I guess this is it. If they want it to sell, they better make sure they keep their promises this time. Fingers crossed!
