Trailer Time: Batman Arkham Knight Trailer #3 “Gotham is Mine”

There is little debate here in the rabidly pro-Batman offices of Killing Time that Batman Arkham Knight is the most anticipated game of 2015.  The finale to an epic gaming trilogy, Batman Arkham Knight will be Rocksteady’s last entry in the series (though other developers may go back in time and explore the world more as Batman Arkham Origins did).  The quality of these games has been incredibly stellar and this time we get perhaps the only piece of the Batxperience we were missing in previous games: we get to drive the Batmobile!  The first entry in the series to be rated M for Mature, Batman Arkham Knight will debut on Xbox One and Playstation 4 on June 2, 2015.

FInal Fantasy Type-0

Final Fantasy X is what got me back into gaming as an adult so I’m always ready to try an entry in the series.  Final Fantasy Type-0 has had ….a rather tortured development cycle.  Its original release date was October 2011, but soon it will be available for Playstation 4 and Xbox One on March 27, 2015.  For more on this and more achievement lists, check out xboxachievements.com.

Jaw Dropping 20 Minutes of Cinematics from The Elder Scrolls Online

Sorry if the posting has been a little light.  I’m traveling through the Old Dominion and will get things up as best as I can.  While I’m gone, you could spend the whole time watching this 20 minutes of cinematics that Bethesda released yesterday to hype people for Elder Scrolls Online.  I’d completely written the game off because I don’t play fee-based games, but Bethesda has dropped the monthly fee requirement and I am in.  If it’s anything like Skyrim, this blog may end as I’m sucked into the time hole that is The Elder Scrolls.  The PC version is already out and Xbox One and Playstation 4 owners can get their hands on it June 9th!  Yes!  A summer non-Madden game of substance!

Stunning Geek Art Gallery from Jeff Langevin!

Every now and then I see an artist’s work highlighted on websites I visit and I’ll pass them along to you.  Today, I was fortunate enough to see the work of Jeff Langevin, and I was stunned.  His range is amazing.  He does these wonderful modern art mash-up tributes to franchises like Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, etc.  He also does very clever posters for recent landmark video games (I also love the collection of  the greatest weapons in video game history).  He ALSO can pull off some of the most gorgeous portraits of Wonder Woman and the Birds of Prey that put me in mind of David Mack and of the very best of the Fables covers over the year.  If I had wall space and money, I would have bought several of his prints, but there’s no reason why you shouldn’t.  You can visit his website by clicking here and his store by clicking here.  Prints are mostly $15 and that’s just robbery for some thing as cool as these.

POLL RESULTS: Best Video Game of 2014

Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor

 

The votes are in and the KT community has chosen Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor as the video game of 2014.  This was my pick as well.  I’ve sunk nearly 90 hours into the game and I’m only 33% through the plot.  It just makes hacking your way through Sauron’s army in a pre-Hobbit Middle-earth that much fun.  Coming in second was the polarizing but addicting Destiny, and Watch Dogs and Titanfall came in at a tie for third.

Thanks to all who voted and get ready for our next poll, our most solemn duty as time killers of the year, as the Oscars announce their nominations, we will begin the heated and always-close process of choosing The Killing Time Community Film of the Year.  In 2013 it was The Dark Knight Rises.  Last year, it was Gravity.  Which film will be our pick this year?  Get ready to vote!  It is your duty as minute stabbers!
