We’ve been teased with snippets of Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack for The Dark Knight Rises over recent weeks and from what we’ve heard everything has sounded suitably epic. Now Empire has managed to get ahold of the soundtrack in its entirety and has been kind enough to stream it for us to listen. Check out the thunderous “Gotham’s Reckoning” down below.

The Dark Knight Rises is almost upon us. With little under a month to go, we still know surprisingly little about the plot of the film (which can only be a good thing), but the viral campaign is giving us a nice taster of what’s happened in Christopher Nolan’s Bat-universe since the events of The Dark Knight.

Feature: “I’m Gotham’s Reckoning” – The Dark Knight Rises Third Trailer Breakdown

It was a long wait (over four months) but last week we finally got the third and final The Dark Knight Rises trailer. In comparison to the all-encompassing media blitz that accompanied Marvel’s The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises marketing has been relatively restrained and sedate. This must be down to the quiet confidence Warner Bros. have in Christopher Nolan and the final part in the Dark Knight trilogy.

News: The Dark Knight Rises Flying Vehicle Named And Spoilers *WARNING*

So, last night I dreamt my friend, @BunchOfSteve, and I were invited to see the première of The Dark Knight Rises. No, true story. I’m not making this up for an interesting intro. I would never do that. Anyway, we were watching the film and it was AWFUL. I mean, George Lucas could have done better. Turned out Chris Nolan had made the film deliberately dreadful as part of an elaborate practical joke… and then I woke up. What’s this got to do with anything? Well, not a lot, but we may have a name for Batman’s new flying vehicle and some fairly big spoilers too. Continue reading

LiveBlog: Batman: Arkham City

SPOILER WARNING. From here in out I’m going to be giving away story and plot points. If you intend on playing the game and want to remain spoiler-free, stop flipping reading, you idiots. For everyone else, welcome.

A little re-cap before we begin – Batman: Arkham City is the sequel to Rocksteady’s 2009 hit Batman: Arkham Asylum, in which you are tasked with stopping the nefarious Joker as he breaks free and takes over the institute for the criminally insane. Locked inside the asylum with The Joker and many other members of Batman’s colourful cast, you are the only thing that stands in their way of the total destruction of Gotham City.

Arkham Asylum is a brilliant game. Crafted with such care and attention to detail, it finally gave Batman, and superheroes, a videogame they could be proud of. It would of been my Game Of The Year, if not for a stellar Uncharted 2: Amongst Thieves. To say I was excited about Asylum’s follow-up, Arkham City, would be an understatement. Let’s get to it, shall we?
