Superman/ Batman On Your Mobile

sbheroes_handango_screenshot_1_150x200_12kI’m not much for gaming on mobile devices at all. I’d much rather play my Xbox 360 rather than suffer through a tiny screen and inferior graphics.

I can’t deny though that I’m amazed that games can now be shrunk to the size of a handheld device that only a few years ago took an entire console to mimic. One of the latest mobile games caught my eye though – Superman/Batman: Heroes United.

It has you playing the titular DC heroes, fighting in Apokolips, Metropolis and Gotham along the way, as  well as against baddies Darkseid and Metallo.

Watchmen Viral Video

The landmark comic maxi-series from the mid 1980s has officially become a film. Despite lawsuits between 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros. over actual ownership of the rights, it’s now been legally decided that the film will get a release. Yay for that! I didn’t want to have to pick up a dodgy bootleg of the film at some convention. Released on March 6, the troubled adaptation, directed by Zack Snyder (300) will be exciting, hopefully. Below is a clever viral video (it’s all the rage these days) focusing on a 1970 NBS Nightly News broadcast celebrating the 10th anniversary of Dr. Manhattan, the only true superhero in the Watchmen world. It has a fantastic authentic feel and really helps sell the film.
