Batman: Arkham Origins Review

“Bruce Wayne has been running around Gotham dressed as a bat for just two years when we encounter him in Batman: Arkham Origins. He’s young, brash, and a tad stubborn. It’s clear through the course of the story that he has some growing pains coming his way as the Caped Crusader; something that can also be said of developer Warner Bros. Montreal with regard to the game itself. While Arkham Origins is a solid addition to the series, some of the studio’s design choices can be found questionable and awkward, like a young man trying to find his way in the world by beating up criminals in a bat suit.”

Batman: Arkham Origins E3 2013 Hands-On Preview

“When Warner Bros. Montreal took on the monumental task of continuing the Batman Arkham series, the company stated that it wasn’t planning to radically change anything Rocksteady Games had previously done with their licensed series. The studio claimed it would only add what made sense within the engine and was going to – without a doubt – improve the overall experience. After getting my hands on Batman: Arkam Origins at E3 2013, I can honestly say that Warner Bros. appears to have done just that, making what I felt to be the definitive Batman experience even better.”

Disney Infinity E3 2013 Hands-On Preview

Disney Infinity is a bold undertaking. Working off of Activision’s popular Skylanders mold, Disney is integrating figurines of several characters from across the company’s properties into gameplay by allowing players to scan them into the Infinity‘s numerous worlds. While each of these worlds — known in the game as Play Sets — will feature its own setting, story, and play mechanics, it’s the creative Toy Box mode that was the game’s biggest of challenges.”

Nintendo reveals Best Buy locations set to showcase E3 lineup

“Nintendo won’t be showing its upcoming software lineup to the world in a press conference during this year’s E3, but that doesn’t mean the console maker isn’t giving the public a chance to see them at all. Earlier today, The Big N announced that 110 Best Buy stores — set across the US and Canada — will host playable demos of these titles for the public during the week of the massive event in Los Angeles.”
