I was afraid I’ve been overloading you with Uncharted 3, Saints Row 3 and Arkham City news and videos, so I figured I’d stick them all in one post.
? First up: A new preview for Uncharted 3, which looks just like an action movie. An awesome action movie. An awesome action movie I want to see. When asked for a quote, Harrison Ford called it “Exciting.” The other two vids are after the jump.
? I’m not much of a fan of running GameTrailers’ previews of games, but I will make an exception for Saints Row the Third. Giant Johnny Gat masks? Slam dunks? Rickshaw duels? Punching bums in the dick? Going undercover as a sex slave? Driving with a live tiger in your car? I love every single thing about this game. If anyone wants to buy one of my kidney’s for $60, email me.
? This video is a little spoiler-y, so be warned. Now, I know Arkham City already came out, but I thought I’d give you a quick update: The game is outrageously enormous. I’ve played 10 hours, and I’m only 18% through. More interestingly, Arkham City’s Batman is kind of… angry. I mean, moreso than usual. He’s actually a bit surly. Almost… a Goddamn Batman, if you will, and here’s a video of Batman’s most assholish moments from the game to prove it. Batman may not cackle in the game, but I sure have been playing him.

Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
