Kevin Conroy returns for Batman: Arkham Origins
Kevin Conroy will be in Batman: Arkham Origins, and he's already spent 10 months in the studio recording those gruff-yet-dulcet tones. Conroy confirmed his involvement at Dallas Comic-Con, but didn't specify if he plays The Bat himself - not that he has to. He opened the panel with, "I am vengeance. I am the night. I am Batman." Because, you know, he is.
NAG magazine reported in April that Warner Bros. had passed on Conroy for Arkham Origins.
Conroy voiced Batman in both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, and he was the man behind Bruce Wayne in Batman: The Animated Series, Batman: Beyond and subsequent DC universe cartoon spin-offs. Arkham Origins is scheduled to launch on October 25 for Xbox 360, PS3, PC and Wii U.Permalink | Email this | Comments
It's Like Elder Scrolls, Only Made By Two Guys
This is Frontiers, a game designed and being developed by two men. Something that blows your mind when you see footage of the game in action.
Developers AAD Productions describe it like this:
FRONTIERS blends the feel of first-person RPG classics like Daggerfall with the relaxing tempo & simplicity of a point-and-click adventure. Discover ancient mysteries, live off the land and fight deadly creatures, all in a beautiful & massive open world.
An open-world RPG? With a relaxing tempo? Good Lord, it's like they asked me what I wanted from a video game and decided to go out and make it.
Frontiers will hopefully be out next year.

Horrid Friday the 13th NES Game Gets This Special Edition Figurine
Friday the 13th, the 1989 game, is widely considered to be one of the worst video games of all time, certainly one of the worst ever made for the NES. So of course it rates a special edition figurine—Jason Vorhees in the strange purple getup he wore for the final, deeply unsatisfying boss battle.
Figures.com has all the details, plus two much larger-size, full-body presentations of the figurine. It's a Comic-Con exclusive by NECA and will be available at the company's booth in San Diego. Figures.com adds that its packaging will replicate the hideous box cover LJN chose for the game, too. Oh, it's $25.
