Batman: Arkham Asylum is getting a sequal

Official website with trailer can be found here.  Doesn't give much, but it looks cool.

and Mark Hamil has confrimed that it will be the last time he voices the Joker :(

I saw that when I wiki'd it.  It made me sad too.  :(
I really wish they'd get David Tennant to be the Riddler. If not here, then at least in the next of Nolan's Batman movies.

My work
The tier system in a nutshell:

Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.

Been playing some Front Mission Evolved. The game's actually pretty good, though slightly remniscent of Armored Core, but with a solid Front Mission feel. I don't fully understand the harsh reviews given to it by sites like Gamespot.

Gamespot is known for having one or two people who hate on certain genres.

After watching a few of these I think I've found the first horror game I just might enjoy playing. It's usually a boring genre, but this seems quite entertaining.
Who cares for realism when you can be awesome?

Well, it appears the game is actually fairly short, but at least it's really, really cool while it lasts. The emphasis is on the action side, unlike Armored Core (which focuses a lot on the mecha-building aspect), which isn't a problem for me.

So, has anyone played Super Meat Boy?  A coworker pointed me to it on a good deal at Steam, and I got it for under $4.  It was totally worth that investment.  I've already managed to get two cousins hooked on it.

It's a ridiculously Nintendo hard platformer, although, not nearly as bad as I Want to be the Guy.  I think the whole point is to find that perfect balance between crazy hard and I-almost-beat-it-maybe-I-should-try-once-more difficult.

Anyway, for those of you who played it, I'm most of the way through the salt levels.  I haven't been playing for 100% completion or anything.  I did make the mistake of letting one of my cousins play on my account, and he proceeded to rack up A+ ratings on all of the forest levels.

So, now that I have PSN access back, I downloaded some of the free DLCs for Batman: Arkham Asylum. Playing as the Joker is WAY too fucking awesome!

Is it 2012 all ready?
8 more days and the release date would have been on my birthday.

Seriously, I'm surprised this thing is still up. All things considered, if the game DOES show up this time, I might just get a harem.

Also, hell freezing, and all that.

So I got started on this little bizarre gem called Hyperdimension Neptunia.

What they basically did is take Trinity Universe's game style, fill it with SO MUCH MOE I DIED, and make it about console wars.

The game doesn't just break the fourth wall, it rapes and sodomizes it with an oil tanker.

Having plenty of fun so far.

"Hey look! Should I jump from here? Should I shout 'Wahoo!' when I'm jumping?"

"...why don't you throw on some overalls and a red cap while you're at it?"

Platinum the Trinity gameplay footage for the BB fans.


And BBWiki is right, her Astral is very... friendly, if you catch my drift.

Dead Money just came out for New Vegas on the PC and the PS3, you could always give that a try. It's definitely not a shooty-bang-bang DLC--if you're familiar with Fallout 3's Pitt, think of that, only here they've actually succeeded at not trivializing survival.

I've just finished Heavy Rain.

I gotta say, this game really impressed me. It feels not unlike an old-time adventure game, but with multiple ways to get to different results. And now the spoilers. AHOY!

[spoiler]I completed all five trials. I was sure that the last one [spoiler]wouldn't kill Ethan[/spoiler] because of the main motivation behind the Origami Killer. And while the game sure tried to sell that [spoiler]Ethan WAS the Origami Killer[/spoiler], two small details quickly point out how that's not possible.

[spoiler]A) Ethan comments he'd never done origami before in his life.
B) In one of your first scenes with Jayden, he comments in passing the Origami Killer has taken the lives of 8 boys in the last 3 years. Jason only died two years prior to the event, so the one event that leads to Ethan potentially being the Killer (his blackouts) didn't start until one year after the first original victims.[/spoiler]

Since half the fun of the game is guessing who the killer is, I was surprised to find out it was [spoiler]Scott Shelby.[/spoiler] I mean, I'd actually considered him, but Gordi Kramer was before him on my list. [spoiler]Naturally, when the truth comes out about Gordi, that hypothesis flew out the window. I actually considered Blake for a short while, because the guy is a major asshole.[/spoiler]

The first time I played through the final chapter [spoiler]Norman died, so I did it over so he could live. What can I say, he's cool in a goofy sort of way.[/spoiler]
[/spoiler]

All in all, great script. Doubt they could have pulled a game like this off with a lesser story.
