First Impostors image shows both teams, cartoonish take on the Batman universe


Seems like the Batman universe is getting the Team Fortress treatment in Batman Impostors, a multiplayer shooter. Apparently, the people of Gotham have a thing for dressing up as their favorite hero (and villain) and duking it out in multi-tiered arenas.

The first screenshot from the game has surfaced. It shows both sides of the game, showcasing a wackier, cartoonish aesthetic compared to Rocksteady’s realistic approach. As the game doesn’t feature the real Batman or Joker, the characters are free to spin their own version of the character, imagining them in a satirical fashion.

Can’t wait for more details on the game to surface. Looks good!

FEAR 2 Being Advertised on Cats

it_photo_111421_26 Bizarre publicity stunts are nothing new in the games industry, but this is quite different: Warner Bros. is advertising F.E.A.R. 2 Project Origin on black cats prowling around London.

Branded a ‘cat-vertising campaign’, the specially trained cats sport FEAR 2 cat clothing, and roam the streets of London. Warner hopes that the creepy cats will capture the attention of superstitious passersby, and since it was Friday the 13th

“Every day people are bombarded with so many advertising messages that it can be easy to miss them,” said a WB spokesperson. “With our research telling us that Brits are actively looking out for signs of bad luck this Friday, it makes perfect sense to try and capture their attention that way.”
