WayForward developing Batman: The Brave and the Bold game

It didn't take long after the announcement of Rocksteady's acquisition for WBIE to reveal the next Batman game. In fact, it's just really weird timing, because the next Batman game has nothing to do with Rocksteady and probably won't be anything like Arkham Asylum. But there's a chance that this...

European Nintendo downloads: Starship Patrol, A Boy and His Blob, Eat! Fat! FIGHT!

Preorder A Boy and His Blob, get a blob

Now here's a novel idea: Preorder A Boy and His Blob at GameStop and receive ... a blob. Well, at least something that looks like the blob from the game's title. In actuality, it's one of those foam rubber stress-relief balls. Only shaped like a the blob -- and far more cute. Note that --...

A Boy and His Blob's new screenshots warm our hearts
