Batman: Arkham City Screenies

Kotaku has 20 new screenshots from Rocksteady. Re: Batman Arkham City. Fall of 2011 cannot come soon enough. I’m thinking of playing through the first game again just for kicks.

Back to the Future

One of this blogger’s top five movies of all time is a little known indie art-piece called Back to the Future. I love it. I love all of it.

Telltale Games (a developer I’m coming to love as well) has released a tease of information about the BttF game they are creating:

  • it’ll be episodic
  • it’ll use the likenesses of Christopher Lloyd and Michael J Fox
  • Christopher Lloyd has been confirmed for the voice of Doc Brown
  • it’s being penned by the original writer Bob Gale
  • it’s set in 1985 Hill Valley, will include the DeLorean, and will include characters from the movies

Count me in.

This is what it feels like to submissively pee a little?

Wow. Just. Wow.

It had me at the rising steampunk balloon. Amazing world concept.

Newspaper in Red Dead Redemption

There is a LOT to do in this game. One of the more interesting things is to read the daily newspapers being sold in the streets. Here is an announcement made in one of them:

The marriage is announced to be solemnized of Miss Mollie Brannigan, daughter of Cole and Ella Brannigan, to Mr Melvin Brannigan, son of Cole and Ella Brannigan

Good to see Rockstar has kept in some humor. Actually, this game is pretty humorous altogether.

Torchlight on Mac? Tomorrow!

Kotaku is reporting that the Steam client for Mac computers comes out tomorrow. If you already own Portal and Torchlight on the PC, you may already own it on the Mac.

If you bought Portal or Torchlight via Steam on your Windows-based PC then you may in fact already be the proud owner of tomorrow’s releases. Portal (and possibly Torchlight — the press release is unclear) will support a feature called Steam Play, which, according to a press release from Valve today, “allows customers to purchase a game once and play it on all Steam supported platforms. Gamers who have previously purchased games on Steam will find them available in their account on the Mac as they are released.”

I think this is AWESOME because these games should run fine on my MacBook. I can now play Torchlight on any computer I own.

Wait. That may be a bad thing.
