OriginsThe next highly anticipated title in Rocksteady’s Batman series has been revealed to be Arkham Origins, a prequel to Asylum focusing on a younger Batman and his first encounters with famous allies and villains.
It will be developed by Warner Bros. Montreal rather than Rocksteady but they have access to the modified Unreal engine so that it will play and look similar to previous installments.
Tales of Xillia, one of the latest titles in the long-running Tales of series, will finally be coming to North American shores this year on August 6th.

Now they can get busy localising Tales of Xillia 2!
The highly anticipated Persona 4 Arena will finally be hitting European shores later this year with a release date of 10th May, so make sure to mark your calendars!

Although the game features a lot of snow it’ll be arriving during the Summer, looking reminiscent of Dead Space 3 with aliens and harsh, chilly landscapes.
It doesn’t feel long ago at all that Assassin’s Creed III came out – maybe because it only released October 2012 – and now Ubisoft are prepping for the latest addition to the series dubbed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
Is Assassin’s Creed fatigue setting in or can this new, pirate themed installment refresh the series?
Since DmC Devil May Cry released in January featuring half-Demon half-Angel brothers Dante and Vergil fans have been wondering when they’ll be able to play Vergil’s Downfall, a DLC announced before the games release.
It focuses on Vergil during events after the games conclusion, which I won’t speak about due to spoilers, as he fights his way through Limbo, slashing through those who stand in his way.

Aquaman, sadly one of the more underrated characters in the DC universe, will be joining the fight in Injustice: Gods Among Us and will come with his very own, unique stage.

Publisher Deep Silver, developers of the upcoming Dead Island: Riptide, has revealed the collector’s edition for the UK and Australia exclusive dubbed the ‘Zombie Bait’ edition.
This has brought on a lot of backlash due to a bust of a mutilated, severed woman’s torso, giant breasts intact, which is included in this controversial edition.
Derrick the Deathfin is a lovely little game about a shark who has recently witnessed his parents deaths. This spurs him on to do greater things i.e. destroy the companies of the people who caused their deaths and kill everybody inside as an act of revenge.
Maybe it isn’t so lovely after all, but Derrick is still rather cute.

A huge emphasis is placed on one of the featured bosses – Kid Xmas – as he and Nilin duke it out in what looks to be a par-real, part-digitised wrestling arena.
As a huge lover of JRPG’s, it only makes sense that my game of the year choice is a JRPG. Tales of Graces f is a game that I had been interested in for a long time before I actually purchased it, and I wished I had bought it earlier.
Although this was an extremely hard choice to make, hopefully I can explain to you, and myself, as to why I love this game so much.

Resident Evil: Revelations, currently exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS, may be making its way to the PS3 if this link to the Koreans Rating Board holds any truth. (Via NeoGAF, where one user has awesome Capcom game-finding skills.)
If this means more Jill Valentine in HD then we are fully supporting this.
