Shirt of the Week/Day: “Now That’s a Hammer, Bro!”

Game-breaker?

Side Note:  I definitely want to see this way more than the real Thor movie.

Since Teefury only sells their shirts for a single day, you better jump on this fast if you’re interested.  At 12:00 am on Tuesday, it’ll be gone…

Telltale’s Fables Series Kicks Off in Early 2012

Following the announcement that Back to the Future/Jurassic Park developer Telltale Games will be developing two more serialized games based on the comic series The Walking Dead and Fables, Telltale recently added that the first episode of Fables will be released during the first quarter (January-March) of 2012.  Telltale also said that episodes of both the Fables and The Walking Dead will be released over multiple years.

That’s not a lot of information, I know.  Telltale said that we’ll be hearing more about both adaptations at Comic-Con this summer.

Infamous 2 Jumpstarts PS3 on June 7th

SCEA and developer Sucker Punch announced today that long-awaited super hero sequel Infamous 2 will be hitting stores on June 7th.  The release coincides with the beginning of E3, which could be an ominous sign; syncing the game’s release may force critics to put their reviews on hold to cover the conference – using a strategy like that COULD be seen as a not-so-subtle way of saying that the game might not hold up to journalistic scrutiny.  (Of course, it could also simply be coincidence, but that doesn’t make for an interesting story, does it.)  Of course, since the original Infamous was a great game, Sucker Punch probably deserves the benefit of the doubt.

Telltale Games Developing Fables & Walking Dead Comic Series Adaptations

Telltale Games, the newly crowned king of random film-to-game adaptations, announced today that they are developing a game based on two popular comic series, Fables and The Walking Dead.  Rumors of the Walking Dead game have been floating around since before the announcement of the series’ TV adaptation, which premiered last fall.  Though it hasn’t been confirmed, both games will likely be serialized DLC games similar to their current version of Back to the Future and their upcoming retelling of Jurassic Park.

Batman: Arkham City Gets Comic Book Prequel

In anticipation of Batman: Arkham City, WB Interactive will be releasing a six-issue digital comic mini-series this May.  The comic will likely tell the story of how Arkham City came to be and shed light on the relationship between Batman and the game’s villain, Dr. Hugo Strange.  The series will be written by Batman: The Animated Series’ Paul Dini and illustrated by Arkham Asylum/Arkham City concept artist Carlos D’anda.  Each issue will be released online worldwide and will cost 2.99.

The comics will help bridge the gap between Arkham Asylum and Asylum City.  To add a little context, after the events of the first game, Arkham’s warden Quincy Sharp becomes the mayor of Gotham.  Sharp closes “Arkham Asylum” and replaces it with “Arkham City”, a walled-off section of the city where criminals can do as they please so long as they stay inside.  Sharp hands the keys of Arkham City to Dr. Hugo Strange, one of the few people who knows that Batman is Bruce Wayne.

The comics will be released bi-weekly.  On the off-weeks, WBi will be releasing a set of short stories – also written by Dini and drawn by many different authors – set during the same period.  These short stories will only be 99 cents.

All of the comics, the series and the short stories, will be included in the collector’s decision of Arkham City.  Batman: Arkham City will be in stores some time this fall.
