Immersion: The Stories Around Interactive Narration – Call of Duty

Who says irony is limited to the confines of narratives?

Dead Space 2 now out

Today is launch day for Dead Space 2, EA and Viseral Games's sequel to one of the best survival horror games in recent years. When the first Dead Space came out two years ago, EA released it with little fanfare. Critics and gamers loved it and it became an example of a breakout hit. Suddenly the sci-fi gaming genre had its own Resident Evil or Silent Hill.

New Batman: Arkham City showcases villainy of Hugo Strange

During tonight's broadcast of the Video Game Awards (VGA) on Spike TV a whole load of new and exciting announcements and previews were beheld. Major new releases like Mass Effect 3 and a new Elder Scrolls game were announced, but during the broadcast a second trailer for the forthcoming Batman: Arkham City game was aired. Did this trailer just tell us that the main villain behind the antics in the sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum is Dr. Hugo Strange? And is it just a big coincidence that Strange is the current frontrunner for who might be the main bad guy in the next Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises?

Trailer: Batman: Arkham City

The second teaser trailer for Batman: Arkham Asylum has hit the intertubes. It's all too brief and doesn't give us any real indication of what the gameplay is like, but look, it's got Batman in it and it's hyping the sequel to one of the best superhero video games ever. Therefore, it should be on all of our radars.
