The latest addition to the roster of Infinite Crisis is Gaslight Joker, yet another Batman villain. This multiverse character is a hardcore beefcake, capable of absorbing ridiculous amounts of damage. That’s a good attribute to have, as Gaslight Joker loses health each time he uses an ability. His passive replaces it as the character picks up credits.
Playing a bit like Zac of League of Legends fame, Batman’s arch nemesis isn’t a one-trick pony. Gaslight Joker features many support capabilities, including a healing debuff and fear. In addition, the trickster can be built to produce a substantial amount of damage in his own right.
The reveal trailer after the cut markets Gaslight Joker as a high sustain tank. Yet one can easily see that Gaslight Joker can seemingly be built in a variety of ways, depending on need. Now if only I could get in the closed beta to see if my suspicions are correct.
In addition to the entry of a select few to early testing, Turbine and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment unveiled the latest god trailer. Sticking with the Dark Knight universe, the latest spotlight highlights none other than the Joker. The criminal mastermind is a unique ranged physical character with high sustainability thanks to lifesteal and support abilities. Fragile and powerful, he plays best at mid range ready to attack or turn tail at a moment’s notice.
There are boundless enemies and heroes yet to be revealed. Stay tuned to Lore Hound for all the latest on Infinite Crisis.
The reveals just keeps coming for Infinite Crisis. Just a scant few days after the reveal of the multitude of Wonder Womens to be made available in the multiverse Turbine Entertainment returns to the universe of Batman to reveal a pair of his leading ladies. Your standard Poison Ivy and Gaslight Catwomen will be joining the roster of the upcoming F2P DC Comics MOBA.
Poison Ivy is a hybrid character capable of providing dedicated support through healing and speed buffs to allies and debuffs to foes, or a vicious AoE damage dealer capable of keeping target’s within her pain range. The former thief from steampunk Gotham, Gastlight Catwoman is a melee assassin that relies on stealth. She may sound a lot like Nightmare Batman, but the feline friend has her own twist.
Past the cut are the trailers for the two loveliest ladies of the Batman universe. Continue Reading

To celebrate the super fast closed beta testing phase of Infinite Crisis, Turbine Entertainment released that dandy of a picture. In it, you’re viewing the multitude of Wonder Womens present in the multiverse of the Infinite Crisis saga.
Infinite Crisis, one of the greatest massive story arcs in the DC universe is being retooled. Retooled, perhaps not the correct word. Let’s go with expanded. Announced today, Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment are entering the expanding massive online battle arena genre with a Turbine-developed title.
Why the announcement wasn’t made during this weekend’s PAX East 2013, which is held in Turbine’s home turf of Boston, is beyond us but the free-to-play PC has us intrigued. Featuring twisted incarnations of the universe’s favorite characters, including Nightmare Batman and Gaslight Catwoman, and safer versions like The Flash, the title will pit famous heroes and villains against each other sometime in 2013.
“The Turbine team is very excited to reveal Infinite Crisis to the world and extend the MOBA genre with new features,” said Jeffrey Steefel, Executive Producer, Turbine. “We are utilizing years of experience in the online game space to deliver innovations to the MOBA genre with a game that features fast-paced action, a major story arc, destructible environments, catastrophic events and a deep roster of iconic DC Comics characters.”
Hit the jump for the official reveal trailer and a tidy collection of screenshots.
Many people spent Martin Luther King Jr’s holiday schlepping around their house, possibly at work or, and this is the really good-natured people out there, donating their time to a charity. Me, well I spent my time re-organizing my gaming shelves (due to in-home construction).
During the shuffling of games, the mingling of HDDVD (fail) and BluRay and coupling of previous and current generation peripherals I stumbled across a “lost” form of entertainment, the tactile sensations of books, board games and graphic novella. During the organization of this unconnected form of entertainment I realized one important fact: There’s a lot of Expanded Universe material to Blizzard’s universes.
Hit the Continue Reading stub to have your mind blown by the vast amounts of novels, board games, manga, comics and trading card game paraphernalia that have been created to extend one of Blizzard’s three universes. Did we miss something? Let us know in the comments! Continue Reading
Cryptozoic, the company that has been responsible for the WoW TCG for over a year, is now Blizzard’s partner for distributing their manga works in digital and printed form for their various franchises.
Notably, the Cryptozoic iPad app can now purchase Blizzard works as they are released and the backlog is updated. The current selection as of the publishing of this post is as follows:
Who doesn’t like Super Heroes or Squads? What if you could have both, but online at the same time?! Stars would collapse, worlds would shatter, and the universe would fold up into its pre-Big Bang state. While I’m sure the folks over at The Amazing Society would love that sort of reception for their upcoming MMO, Marvel Super Hero Squad Online, I imagine they’d also prefer to keep their customers around, as well. And let me tell you, it’s hard selling material goods to non-corporeal beings!
Still, they were gracious enough to let us do a little bit of the legwork in promoting their game by taking some time out of their busy convention schedule to talk with iTZKooPA. Due to unfortunate audio issues, we couldn’t include footage of the housing system (in which your collection of Super Heroes can be made to interact with each other like in creative ways, like irradiated-spider-bitten Sims) or the PvP Card Battle mode (though we will in another, forthcoming video), but Vice President and Studio Manager Jason Rober still spilled the beans on some exciting new characters and game features.
Don’t be fooled by the cutesy look, there’s some seriously cool stuff going on here!
