Nutrition Obsessed Bane Outtakes

We do a lot of serious looking at film…but sometimes you just want to be stupid funny about the films we love and for that you need Auralnauts.  You’ve probably seen the Kylo Ren Reacts series that the YouTube channel (to which you should subscribe) put up during the roll-up to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but before that (and this site), they had an equally fun time with vocally distorting themselves into Tom Hardy’s Bane from The Dark Knight Rises.  So for a Friday laugh, I present: Nutrition-Obsessed Bane.  HE WILL FEEEED YOU….PROPERLY!!! TGIF, Time Killers.

Trailer Time: Batman – The Telltale Series Trailer #1 (2016 – Xbox, Playstation)

This is one of my most anticipated games of 2016.  A partnership between Telltale Games, who have created an entire genre of chapter-based, choice-oriented stories using licenses like The Walking Dead, Borderlands, Fables, Minecraft, etc. and the Dark Knight.  This is all we know about the plot so far.

Enter the fractured psyche of Bruce Wayne and discover the powerful and far-reaching consequences of your choices as the Dark Knight. In this gritty and violent new story from the award-winning creators of The Walking Dead– A Telltale Games Series, you’ll make discoveries that will shatter Bruce Wayne’s world, and the already fragile stability of a corrupt Gotham City.

The first episode is due next month digitally.  Store goers will have to wait until September.

Complete List of Achievements/Trophies for Batman: Arkham Knight

The final entry in Rocksteady’s Batman Arkham trilogy is nearly upon us.  Three weeks until we can all “Be the Batman” and as usual the good folks at xboxachievements are all on top of your cheevo and trophy needs.  This really has been the best summer for video games I can remember, and I kind of hope it knocks it off because I have a serious backlog to play through.  Batman: Arkham Knight releases for Xbox One and Playstation 4 on June 23, 2015.

Details on Batman: Arkham Knight’s Season Pass; A Lot of Bang for $40 (2015 – Xbox One, PS4)

As much as they are universally adored by video game and Batfans alike, Rocksteady took some flak this week when they announced that their season pass was going to run gamers $39.99.  At the time, all they announced was that Batgirl was going to have some playable mission.  Also released was a pretty fricking awesome pic of her that hearkens back to Gail Simone’s run.

Now, I hate season passes.  For the most part they’re a scam.  However, Rocksteady has released the full extent of what is coming with that $40 and it sounds almost like the equivalent of another game.  Keep also in mind that season passes are notoriously slashed for Xbox Sales around holidays, so you could pick this up for probably half the price in a few months once you’re done with the game.  This is ALL content I want to play and looks to be the rare season pass worth the money (looking at you Call of Duty).  Here’s the full details and press release.  Be the Batman on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC on June 23, 2015.

Batman, Robin, Nightwing, Batman Arkham Knight

Earlier this week, we announced the Season Pass for Batman: Arkham Knight. While the story of Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Trilogy will come to a close on June 23rd, we are excited to continue telling stories and delivering more content to explore and play through in the 6 months following the game’s release. We’ll be building more narrative, more missions, more challenges and more characters and vehicles that we want players to experience, even though they didn’t fit into the storyline of Batman: Arkham Knight.

We’ve heard from our community that you want more information on what we’ll be delivering in the Season Pass. While we aren’t ready to unveil every aspect of the content we’ll be developing, we would like to share more detail now to give you a better sense of the scope of the Season Pass.

Batgirl: A Matter of Family
An all new prequel story expansion in an entirely new location where you play as Batgirl for the very first time in the Arkham series – check out the first render of Batgirl.

The Season of Infamy
Play as Batman in all new story missions featuring legendary super-villains invading Gotham City, with new story arcs, missions and gameplay features.

Gotham City Stories
Play as Batman’s key allies in narrative missions extending their storylines, from both before and after the events in Batman: Arkham Knight.

Legendary Batmobiles with Themed Tracks
Drive the most iconic Batmobiles from Batman’s 75-year history, on custom-built race tracks, each themed to that Batmobile’s specific era. Every Batmobile will be drivable across every race track.

Crimefighter Challenge Maps
Engage in a series of new challenge maps utilizing the unique play styles of Batman and his allies. 

Character Skins
A variety of skins from across the eras for Batman, Robin, Nightwing and Catwoman.

As we fully ramp up development on the Season Pass, we will be sharing even more details on each monthly content drop. We hope you enjoy playing Batman: Arkham Knight as much as we’ve enjoyed making it.

TV Review: Gotham 1.01 “Pilot” (FOX)

The first of four new super hero shows this season (Flash, Gotham, Constantine and Peggy Carter Agent of SHIELD) premiered and, while it wasn’t the instant home run that I was hoping for, I have a feeling Gotham is going to build into something quite special.  I, for one, will be along for the ride in what is an origin story for a city, really.  How did the Gotham City that needed a Batman become to be?  That seems to be the show’s guiding principal question.

The protagonists for the show are very much the members of the GCPD.  Drawing ideas and characters from Rucka and Brubaker’s Gotham Central run is never going to be a mistake and we get Renee Montoya and Crispus Allen a bit in the pilot, but the main focus is on the two lead characters in the show: Jim Gordon and Harvey Bullock.  It’s an interesting juxtaposition that Bullock is the savvy negotiator of the Gotham streets and Gordon is the greenhorn.  Most depictions of Bullock have him with a donut crammed down his throat half of the time, while Donal Logue’s Bullock is more than walking the borderline of being a dirty cop .  I think his being dragged up, against his will, by Gordon’s stubborn do-gooding is going to be one of the more interesting storylines of the season (series).  The show opens with the iconic murders of Thomas and Martha Wayne.  The camera and set-up is more interested with who was there and who witnessed it before snapping to a horrified Bruce’s scream.
