Movie News, where Batman: Assault on Arkham is a forthcoming animated feature set in the Batman: Arkham Asylum universe. It will be directed by Justice League: War’s Jay Oliva.

  1. Lmao @ Namco Bandai/Bandai Namco & GOaTY!

    Mario figures look dope. Gonna start force feeding my 11 month old burgers & chips, lol!

  3. Velocity 2X screens for PS4 look tasty, haven’t bought the game since the original was free on plus so this might be an ideal opportunity for me to send some cash in Futurlab’s direction.

  4. The Rocksteady snatch makes me very happy.
