Cat vs. Bat: Hands-on with ‘Batman: Arkham City’

My hands-on time with this year’s Bat-game revealed a few things to me.

The new criminal ghetto in the sequel’s Gotham City is big. Very big. You’ll face off against even more thugs–and more kinds of thugs–in Arkham City. But Batman will have a powered-up set of attacks and gadgets. The combat system features tiers of execution …

E3 2011: Xbox 360 Gets Live TV in ‘New’ New Xbox Experience

What’s the one thing you wish Xbox Live had in the U.S., that it doesn’t today? Yep, I said live TV, too. I haven’t actually had live TV (or frankly any sort of cable TV package) for years. When I watch TV at all, it’s to plumb Netflix’s super-giganto library, or to pop in a couple seasons of something long-since-aired on DVD. But I …
