Batman is bringing some pals along this time around
LEGO Batman took place in Gotham City which allowed you to only play as characters in related to the Batman series. This time, in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, you will have a larger roster of characters. Players will be able to take control of Batman characters, but they will also have the opportunity to use Superman, Wonder Woman, and the Green Lantern to name a few. This large roster of available characters should bring nice variety and co-op experiences to gamers. Heroes aren't the only character being added to the game though. With the new heroes come villains such as Lex Luther from Superman, but the Joker is sure to make another appearance in the new game as well. Who knows? Maybe Lex Luther and the Joker will be working together to combine their evil powers.
LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is scheduled to release this Summer on PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, DS, 3DS, and PlayStation Vita.
This year, Sony decided to give us a little more God Of War at the 2011 E3 Show. Don't get too excited though, no "new" games were announced. However, the two recent PSP titles (Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta) are coming to the PS3 in a HD collection.
Both of the best selling PSP titles will have added features that the PSP doesn't support. The first is 3D compatability. Both of Kratos' adventures can be experienced in compelling 3D action. Both games will also have full, and seperate, trophy support. Trophy collectors will have a blast trying to get as many trophies from two full games.
As seen in the above trailer, the expected release date is September 13, 2011.
In this article, I take a look at the new multiplayer maps released as DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops
On 2/1, Treyarch released four new multiplayer maps and one new map for Nazi Zombies for Call of Duty: Black Ops, their record-breaking first person shooter. Costing 1200 Microsoft points for those on Xbox 360, the maps are titled Berlin Wall, Discovery, Kowloon and Stadium.
Berlin Wall, naturally, is stationed at the divide of East and West Germany, complete with a "No Man's Land" area. Discovery is another snow-based map with several choke points for those who enjoy fast-paced action. Kowloon is based on a level from the campaign mode and continues Treyarch's quest for interactive gaming with two zip wires, which allow players to travel quickly from one destination to another, although leaving them vulnerable for attack by those scouring said areas for kills. Stadium is exactly how it sounds. A sports stadium, based on a New York ice hockey arena.
