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.

A new sequel for the Disney's Epic Mickey video game may be on its way
At this point, it seems that any relevant evidence of the game's existence has been pulled from sources. However, an article from StitchKingdom.com, a site dealing with Disney related news and information, suggests that Disney said in a official newsletter that Epic Mickey 2 was on its way. Disney may have added that in the newsletter as an accident, because now the information is gone. So, don't we still have that article from StitchKingdom.com? Nope. The article has been pulled from the web as well. A GameInformer article mentions that they saw the important information before it was completely erased. The information provided suggests that the Disney Newsletter says:
Disney Epic Mickey 2 is the latest game in the critically acclaimed Disney Epic Mickey videogame series. In this all-new action-platforming game available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii, Mickey embarks on an epic journey and is pulled back into a world filled with Disneys forgotten characters. Players can choose to play single-player as Mickey or for the first time players can also choose 2-player split screen mode. In the 2 player mode one person can play as Mickey wielding magic paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world and the second player can play as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Җ Walt Disneys first cartoon star Җ with the power to fly like a helicopter and use electricity to fight or friend enemies and solve challenges. Team-up and choose your path to save this forgotten world because the choices you make will alter the story and change the end of the game!
This information suggests a few very interesting details. First of all, the game might be multi-platform. The first Epic Mickey game was a Nintendo Wii exclusive, so Epic Mickey 2 would get in the hands of more gamers this time around. Also, this new sequel will feature a co-op option. Other missing parts of the newsletter suggest that the game will come out around Fall 2012.
If this game is actually happening, then a official confirmation will most likely be posted soon.

Time to break the bank again!
Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling has released the first screenshot of the upcoming first Map Pack for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 expected sometime in January. Which, is a photo of a lovely waterfall in a future map named "Park".
The first batch of DLC maps will ONLY be available to Call of Duty Elite Subscribers on the Xbox 360 at first as the subscription originally promised those who are subscribed will have access to the DLC maps for MW3 before everyone else. However, it is currently unclear how long it will be before it's available for non-subscribers at this time. Robert Bowling also mentioned on Twitter that there will be more than just maps, so there's a chance that more spec-ops missions are expected as well. More details coming soon.

When world's collide!
During the latest Spike Video Game Awards, the latest development of the Tony Hawk series has yet again, been announced. Making this the tenth official Tony Hawk installment. (Not including other special versions/installments) However, this isn't the kind of Tony Hawk game we've been used to since Tony Hawk's Underground. As the "Pro Skater" title returns, so to many memories.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD features familiar levels from THPS and THPS 2 for a blast-to-the-past, rebuilt and remastered for modern machines by "Robomodo". The game will be console downloadable, and is expected to range around $15 once released this summer. The game will feature new and old pro skaters from some of the most recent past TH installments. As they said, "If we've been reading the Twitters correctly, this is exactly what the TH fans have asked for."
So many memories...

Is there a special edition of Mortal Kombat coming our way?
The BBFC has a game listed under the name "Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition". It is obvious that the content included in a special edition version of the game will include Mortal Kombat (2011) DLC characters such as: Rain, Freddy Krueger, Scarlet, etc. This doesn't mean that there won't be other new features added to this "Komplete Edition". There have been no confirmations or solid details released about this game, but we won't have to wait long, because the BBFC has the game listed to release on February 17th, 2012, and you can bet that there will be a proper announcement soon to let gamers know of the games existence.
Ed Boon, co-creator of Mortal Kombat, teased in a Tweet last month that there would an "unexpected surprise" regarding the Mortal Kombat series. There is a large chance that he was referring to this game.
