 Pretty much everyone was completely floored by how well Batman: Arkham Asylum turned out as a game. For a long time, good Batman titles didn't exist unless you went back to the Super Nintendo for the most recent game.

While the Batman: Arkham Asylum's main campaign took around 8-10 hours to complete, the next game looks to be a much lengthier experience.


 Last, but certainly not least, in my early look at this year's E3 are all of the third party games that we could be seeing on the floor. While there may be people not necessarily looking for a new console or new handheld device, there are plenty of people looking for the next big game to come out either at the end of this year or sometime next year. It certainly looks like there will be a lot to look forward to, so let's get an idea of what we may be seeing at E3.


Back in the early 90s, fighting games saw an emergence with the release of Street Fighter II in arcades and on home consoles. At first, there was no contest to rival its success until Ed Boon and John Tobias came out with a little game called Mortal Kombat. What separated this from any other fighting game was it's blood and gore, which ultimately led to the creation of a mature-rated game in the ESRB. For almost 20 years, Mortal Kombat has changed its formula around little by little, but the latest entry in the series goes back to its roots to deliver an experience that may be the best one yet for the franchise.
