Hope you got $100 lying around, because you're going to need it.  Hot on the heels of our report this past week regarding a collector's edition of Batman: Arkham City, WB Games has indeed confirmed that it exists.  And not only do we have the first image to prove it, but we also have official contents.  Bat freaks are going to LOVE this...


Batman: Arkham City is just about three months away from release, and the sheer scope and magnitude of the sequel make it look like it'll easily top Game of the Year-winner Batman: Arkham Asylum.  Bigger stages, ability to play as side characters (Catwoman and Robin, namely), new villains...just every aspect of the game looks to be better than ever.  But what about the collector's edition of the game that's making the rounds?  Will it be better?  It sounds that way...

With Kenshi and Skarlet out of the way, it's almost time for the third DLC character for Mortal Kombat to be released as part of the Mortal Kombat Season Pass. That third fighter is the ninja in purple - Rain. Considered to be a laughing stock by many simply due to the color he wears, Rain is probably one of the least favorite characters throughout the game's history. However, he looks to gain a little bit of favor in this new gameplay trailer showing off just what he can do.
Two weeks ago, NetherRealm Studios began unleashing DLC onto the Mortal Kombat scene with the release of Skarlet, the glitch in Mortal Kombat II who finally became an official character in the recent Mortal Kombat title. Yesterday, NetherRealm rolled out even more DLC with Kenshi, the blind swordsman who made his debut in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. With a new arsenal of moves and combos, Kenshi is better than ever and makes for one of the best fighters to play as in the game.
Now that June is pretty much coming to a close, it's about time to put all of our grades together and write up a report card for the second quarter of 2011. After the year got off to a pretty solid start, the second quarter really picked up the pace and hosted a bevy of games that made these past 3 months a special time for gamers. With mulitple titles that could be in the running for Game of the Year, the second quarter has a good shot at being the best quarter this year will see.
Last week, NetherRealm Studios opened up the flood gates of DLC with the release of Skarlet, the Mortal Kombat II glitch that eventually became an actual character. The next kombatant in line is Kenshi, the blind swordsman who made his first appearance in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. While gamers patiently wait for him to hit the market, a new gameplay trailer has been released that shows off the moves we can expect Kenshi to pull off.
Back in the days of klassic Mortal Kombat, several of the characters created for the game were nothing more than a simple palette swap. The model used for Katana/Milena/Jade in Mortal Kombat II was the same actress, just with different color outfits in each fighter. However, in some arcade cabinets an unknown fourth character from that same model appeared as an error, wearing a red outfit. While she had no official name, many fans of the series dubbed her Skarlet. But now in the new Mortal Kombat, she no longer is in that category as she makes her official debut in the series, and she can be quite the force to reckon with.
As revealed a few weeks ago, Batman will be getting a little bit of help from an unlikely source, that being the Catwoman. But whatever happened to his trusty sidekick Robin? Usually you would think he would be around to help out, and for a while it seemed that wasn't going to be the case... until now. Best Buy is offering up Robin's services to those who pre-order Batman: Arkham City at their store. In addition to the announcement, we also got our first look at the Boy Wonder.
Superman has his flight and his laser sight. Spider-Man has his web and his spider sense. Batman has his gadgets and his bare hands. Sometimes, that's all you really need to fight crime. Sure, there have been plenty of other comic book heroes with more impressive abilities, but no one does it in style like Batman does. While everyone was checking out the new games on the E3 floor, Rocksteady Games released a few more screenshots for Batman: Arkham City. These screenshots show Batman going old school and fighting with hard fists and a few gadgets for good measure.

Sometimes you may find yourself taking on a task that is too big to handle on your own. Lots of superheroes go through the same thing. It's situations like these where you call in for a sidekick. Almost immediately, you would think that Robin would be the one to answer the call, but not this time. Instead, Batman finds himself aligning with Catwoman to help take down the criminals in Batman: Arkham City. The new trailer shows off just what she can do both in combat and in traversal.
 If you have just recently played Mortal Kombat, you may have noticed a few things a bit different this time around. Characters do damage differently, some moves are not quite as effective, or attacks recover a bit shorter than they used to. You're probably driving yourself nuts because you swore the combos you worked on the other day were more effective. There's no need to worry. NetherRealm decided to patch the characters via hotfix, not requiring a full title update.
