A Look at the Many Bat Suits in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

Holy hole in a doughnut Batman!

We love a good LEGO game here at Nintendo Life, and when that game also features the Dark Knight we're pretty optimistic that it will be a winner.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edition (Wii U eShop)

The broken Bat

For as long as portable games have existed, the trend of developing handheld versions of popular console titles has been present and correct. These games tend to be inferior versions of the originals, taking a substantial hit graphically and often limiting gameplay, depending on what the portable console is capable of. In some cases,...

Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure (Wii U)

Well-written heroes

There’s an oddly profound moment at the beginning of Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure in which Batman tells Maxwell, the series protagonist, that “no one respects a hero who takes the easy way out.” That one line, though innocuous as it may be, actually sets the tone for the rest of the game. It’s a reminder...

Throw away the key

Being ambitious is no easy task. Playing a full, big-budget console game on a portable system is likely in every gamer’s wildest fantasies, but due to hardware limitations, we’re often left disappointed by half-hearted ports.

Holy DLC overload, Batman!

Batman: Arkham Origins on Wii U may have been lacking the all-new multiplayer mode and — in the opinion of some — be below the standards of the Rocksteady predecessors, but it's still a title with some happy fans. Beating on thugs while saying "I'm Batman" in a very deep voice is fun. The Wii U version has, to date,...
