Article 5 Alternate Versions of Batman That Would Make Amazing Games

5 Alternate Versions of Batman That Would Make Amazing Games

Miraculously, we live in an age where there are good Batman games (the Arkham series, in case you're the only person in the world super into Batman Forever ROMs). It took so long to get to the point where a regular Batman game could be good, we really didn't have time to consider the idea of making some of the weird alternate-Batman versions into amazing videogames as well. But now that the original Dark Knight's business has been settled, what other versions of Gotham's protector could use a next-gen franchise of their own? Here are the 5 that could be incredible.

 

1. Bizarro-Batman

The Character: Bizarro World is a strange, cube-shaped planet where everything is the exact opposite of what it is in our world. It's mostly known for Bizarro-Superman (or simply Bizarro), but he is far from the only interesting character from that twisted mirror of a world. Bizarro-Batman (aka The World's Worst Detective) is a moronic buffoon who has to solve cases and fight crime despite having less IQ than teeth.  His Futility Belt houses such useless stuff as chewed bubblegum and cigarette butts. A true underdog, he has to maintain peace and put a stop to the schemes of Bizarro-Joker, who, in a cruel twist of fate, is the only sane person in their world.

Article Everybody Hadoukens, and We Have the GIFs to Prove It

By Jake Young / February 20, 2014

Consider the mighty Hadouken. The most universally famous of the special moves, there is something so compelling about it. Focusing your energy, drawing back, and with both open palms releasing a powerful blast to obliterate your enemies. At least once in your life I bet you even tried to do it when nobody was looking. Young or old, human or animal, nobody can escape the fantasy of the Hadouken which is why we've assembled these GIFs.

Admittedly, a few Kamehameha Waves got thrown in there and not Hadoukens, but let's stop pretending those are two different things already. 

 

Let's start with these guys who are all masters of the variant technique "The Dad-ouken"

Article Geeks in Love: The Rise of the "Special Feeling" Meme

By Jake Young / February 20, 2014

Another meme has taken hold of Japan. Born of geek culture, Valentine's Day, and the polar vortex, it's a veritable perfect storm of internet exploitability.

It all started with a news report about the extreme winter weather that's been hitting Tokyo. The reporter stops a young couple to ask about the snow and the umbrella wielding man answers "being in the snow with my lover like this envelops me in a special feeling. I like it."
