Man, the Batman: Arkham City game is getting crowded. But that’s a good thing. It means that Batman will be very busy and it should be an awesome game. Rocksteady has revealed another villain from the game.
It’s not enough that this 6-foot-tall LEGO Batman looks totally awesome, but the fact that it was built by a 13-year-old makes it even more impressive to me. Maybe it’s just that when I was a kid, my LEGO building abilities were pretty much limited to whatever the picture on the box showed.
I’m not really a comic geek so pardon me if this has been addressed in canon, but I’ve always wondered why only the Gotham PD had a bat signal. Wouldn’t ordinary citizens have a higher chance of actually needing the Batman to protect them from the horrors of Gotham City?
I can not wait until the next Batman movie. At least we have Arkham City to tide us over until 2012, when we can finally see The Dark Knight Rises. As an added treat we also now have this custom Arkham City Xbox 360 console to drool over.
I will admit that while I have seen all of the Batman flicks they have all been crazy cheesy until Christian Bale took over in the recent Christopher Nolan-helmed films. Bale and Nolan took Batman and made it much more real and gritty.
Who doesn’t know Batman?
I’ve always been a fan of superheroes, but the thing I love the most about the caped crusader was that he didn’t possess any superhuman or special powers; he was human, but he was damn good at being one.
Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) has had a few rough weeks. Aside from the much publicized announcement by hacker group Anonymous about an impending take-down of the company’s sites because of the action they took against another hacker, Geohot, they recently had to hurdle another attack on their system where the perpetrator’s walked away with over 12,700 credit card numbers and information from 24.6 million user accounts.
I’m sure there are ready-to-use replicas of Batman’s Shakespeare bust (the one with the hidden switch) that you can buy somewhere – in fact we featured one a few years ago. But if you’ve got the skills and the tools, you can try making your own by following the guide made by The New Hobbyist.
I’m pretty sure this is the first time that I’m going to describe Batman as cute, but what else can I say? This plush Batman is cute. There. Robin’s gained a bit of weight though. I’ll call him Double-Chin Robin.
OK, I am a geek. I can admit that and have no problem with that fact. I do have standards though, and draw the line when things go from geeky to downright weird. I think the new Batman TDK Utility Pouch may have dissolved that line quite well.
Are there some thugs in your neighborhood that could use a good ol’ smack to the head? Do you hear their victims’ incessant cries for help? Are you hiding in the darkness of your bedroom, clenching your fist and looking out the window, staring at the night and all its sins and vices, wishing there was something you could do to fight crime?!
These portrait projecting rings were made by the Bristol artist Luke Jerram for his wife. They were inspired by the Stanhope optical jewelry of the 19th century. Luke worked with a jeweler named Tamrakar so that this ring can project the embedded image onto a wall when a light source is applied.
