I’ve finally gotten around to playing another genre video game, after a load of non-genre games I’ve reviewed elsewhere. So, I have a review of a game that might make for fodder for the Crossover site – Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. Continue reading →
This weekend we have a review of another of the more recent DC Universe animated features, in Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. Or, as it probably should have been titled – The Girl From Krypton.
It’s a teaser and consider me teased.
This weekend we have another of the DC animated movies for review – this one an adaptation of a fairly recent Batman storyline, post Infinite Crisis. Continue reading →
Christopher Nolan has announced the title for his third Batman movie: The Dark Knight Rises.
Along with killing 3D for filming (yea!), he’s also said that Edward Nygma aka The Riddler will not be the villain used in this film.
So, keeping in mind Nolan’s desire to keep these films “grounded in reality,” what villain do you think he’ll go with?
Yes, I realize that SDCC 2010 was last week. However, I kind of had a lot of stuff to do when I got home after the convention (I’ve only really finished unpacking just now), so now it’s time to get my notes together and let you know what happened during the con, based on my journal entries from the trip.

Today we ring in the New Year with Batman: Arkham Asylum, a game that has been lauded by other members of the gaming press as the best Batman game of all time. Well… being that I’m not other members of the gaming press, let’s see what I think. Continue reading →

The ending of DC: The New Frontier on the other hand… well, I’m not going to spoil my own review. Continue reading →
Previously, we’ve reviewed Justice League: The New Frontier, a direct-to-video animated movie adapted from Darwyn Cooke’s graphic novel, taking the Silver Age and re-spinning it to reflect the real-world politics of the time, and some more modern sensabilities. At the time of that review, we hadn’t done a review of the much longer graphic novel on which the comic was based. We’re rectifying that now with a review of part 1, with part 2 to follow next week.
