Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe Trailer

The trailer for the upcoming game has hit the Interwebnets. I haven’t been a big fan of the Mortal Kombat series since the mid-90s, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to give this game a pass as well.  Anyone eagerly anticipating this? via Game Trailers

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

I love seeing Batman taking down Sub-Zero as only MidWay can do. [youtube][/youtube] I really, really hope this is a kick-ass game and not a toned down kid friendly game that sucks the life out of both Mortal Kombat and the DCU

Lego Batman: The Animated Trailer Update

Here’s the latest trailer/commercial for the upcoming Lego Batman video game. [youtube][/youtube] If I only had 10 more hours in the day, I might be able to squeeze in 30 minutes to play video games again.

Street Fighter: The Movie…Again…

Variety is reporting the Street Fighter videogame is set to make another appearance on the silver screen. One would think the horrible failure that was the Jean-Claude Van Damme Street Fighter (1994) would be a hint to proceed cautiously with any other film in the franchise. Instead of following te Jean Claude character, this script, penned by Justin Marks focuses on female fighter Chun Li on a campaign for justice. Justin Marks is also penning the Voltron movie for New Regency, Super Max and He-Man for Warner Bros. Street Fighter is set to go into production in 2008 with 20th…

UPDATED: If You Like Lego Star Wars, You’ll Love…

Oh man, first it was Lego Star Wars, then Lego Batman, now Lego and LucasArts are teaming up for Lego Indiana Jones: The Videogame. The game will be a tounge-in-cheek as players take on the role of Indiana Jones as he whips his way through the three movies. Way back in 1995 or so, when Lego released it’s Adventure series, I posted how cool it would be to have actual Indiana Jones playsets. Well it looks like 12 years of waiting is finally paying off as Lego and Lucasfilm have announced we’ll get Indiana Jones playsets in January 2008.

Dynamite Entertainment
Mercenaries Jump into Comics

Dynamite Entertainment has done it again by obtaining another hot property. Teaming up with Pandemic Studios, Dynamite Entertainment will be creating comic books based on the Mercenaries video games. The series will be written by Brian Reed, with interior art by Edgar Salazar, and covers by Michael Turner. In a prepared statement Dynamite’s Nick Barrucci said, “Writer Brian Reed is blowing comics fans away with his work on New Avengers: Illuminati, Ms. Marvel and Red Sonja, so you can expect more of the same incredible action-packed storylines and intrigue from him on Mercenaries.” There will be some cross promotion between…

Batman Lego Game On the Way

Fans of Lego Batman and video games have a reason to rejoice as Warner Bros and TT Games will bring LEGO Batman: The Videogame to consoles and the PC in 2008. Judging from the press release sent out by the company, this game will be similar to the LEGO Star Wars games that have shot up the charts. “Batman spans several generations as one of the most popular DC Super Heroes, and LEGO BATMAN will appeal to several generations of gamers who grew up idolizing the Dark Knight and playing with LEGO toys,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Development…

Spider-Man III Game Footage

The Spider-Man III video game takes you below the streets of New York as you battle Venom, Sandman, and more. Looks pretty awesome to me, although I really wonder if subway tunnels and sewers are that big. embedPlayer(626918980)

Captain America Video Game Retrospective

Captain America may be dead (for now) but you can relive his adventures over and over again through that popular medium video games. Since 1987 Captain America has been duking it out with villians across the Marvel Universe. While some of the games may seem REALLY bad by today’s standards, I remember some of these when they first came out and “marvel”ed at how cool they were. Marvel has created a retrospective of Captain America related games through the ages, and here are a peek at a few. Memories…

Top Cow
The Darkness Video Game

I’m a big fan of The Darkness comic, it’s freaky, spooky, and thrilling all at the same time. Imagine how cool it would be to play a Darkness video game. Well wait no longer; 2K Games has released gameplay footage that should have you wet for release day. You can view the trailer here, and you can view the eight minutes of gameplay here. Groovy…
