"It's surreal. I see this dork when I look in the mirror , and I go, 'You're not Batman.'" Except in this case, that's exactly who the humble, diminutive man sitting next to us is. Though not quite as imposing a physical presence as Batman would be were he real, actor Roger Craig Smith has the right timbre and tone to bring the Dark Knight to life in Batman: Arkham Origins.
Kotobukiya has been crafting fine statues of our favorite video game licenses for quite some time. Every year, the company rolls out at least a half-dozen new must-have items, and 2014 will prove to be no exception. We took a tour of Kotobukiya's booth at New York Comic Con, and snapped some shots of all the new hotness coming to our shores in the coming year.
Warner Bros. Interactive had a fairly large presence at New York Comic Con this year, what with more than a handful of new superhero-themed games coming out over the next few weeks. To help hype up Batman: Arkham Origins even more, the publisher brought out the big guns in Troy Baker and Roger Craig Smith, or as you might know them, the Joker and Batman. We sat down with Troy Baker to discuss what it was like being the clown prince of crime.
From Final Fantasy to Assassin's Creed, Square Enix Play Arts has a wealth of action figures lined up based on a wide variety of gaming licenses. The collectibles division of the game publisher was on hand at New York Comic Con to show off its upcoming figures, and we couldn't pass up the chance to catch a glimpse of the toys sure to be lining our shelves (and emptying our wallets) in the coming year.
Couldn't make it out to New York Comic Con 2013 to see all of the cosplayers running around in their costumes? Don't worry, because we've got you covered.
The Vita has a sore lack of depth when it comes to fighting games, but Warner Bros. has been doing its best to bring its punchiest titles to the Sony handheld. Case in point, the just-announced Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition. The portable version made its debut at New York Comic Con this week, and we just had to test it out to see if Armature Studios was up to the task of porting over NetherRealm's DC fighter.
We've always been taught to fear what lurks in shadows. Bereft of light, the dangers concealed within the shade could be terrifying. We never know what hides in the black because it might be something we don't want to confront. In the comfort of light, you're safe. But what if you were that terror in the shadow? In Eidos Montreal's Thief, light is your greatest enemy. And the dark? The dark is your home.
