For the record you can drift with the GameCube controller. However, you cannot drift if you pick automatic. Okay, now that we got that out of the way how about watching this week’s Go Round of Mario Kart Wii?
The Arkham franchise is its own thing these days. The series has seen three entries at this point and been handled by two different primary developers. Rocksteady, the original developers of the series, and Warner Bros. confirmed today that a fourth game is coming later this year. Batman: Arkham Knight takes place one year after the events of Arkham City and will feature a number of familiar faces. Two-Face, Harley Quinn (a playable character) Penguin and Scarecrow will all make their returns and for the first time in the series you’ll be able to drive the Batmobile.
If a quote by the developer means what it sounds like it means this could be the final entry in the franchise. According to quote in Gamer Informer one member of the development team said, “We kind of feel like this is the natural end for this story. We really want to go out in style.”
One disappointing bit of news for Wii U owners, the game will be skipping that platform. This follows the announcement of Arkham City DLC no longer being developer for Wii U. Batman: Arkham Knight will be released later this year for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
This is a podcast? Man, y’all, we had a rough time with this one. Technical issues abound but thankfully the final cut sounds normal (I hope). We talk some Nintendo Land, Need For Speed U, Mighty Switch Force, TMNT, Assassin’s Creed and other wonderful things; like Twitch Plays Pokemon. Podcast go.

Nobody’s perfect. Especially the Imperfects as they fight against your favorite Marvel heroes in this week’s Go Round of Marvel Nemesis: Rise Of The Imperfects for the Xbox. We had a lot of fun playing this game in college. Several of us even went as far as to beat the game. We play the Xbox version here but this game came out for everything at the time; I beat the PS2 version. You could probably find a copy pretty easy if you wanted to.
Castlestorm is the sidescrolling RTS from Zen Studios that sees you attempting to defend your castle while attacking and destroying an opposing army’s fortress. The game currently features two factions and a number of missions to complete. Zen Studios announced today that the game is getting a little bit bigger on Wednesday February 26th.
The game’s first expansion, From Outcast to Savior, will be available for $2.99. It includes one new faction, the Royal Guard who appear to be based on medieval Europe and Knights. It will also include a new, unlikely hero, new weapons, and trophies as well as Skirmish and Survival levels. Some of the new environments include Stonecrest, The Royal Airport, The Skyship Harbor and the Bladgard Icefields in your quest to capture the mighty Viking warrior, Chief Ramhorn.
All of this content will be available for the Wii U in North America and Europe. Zen Studios also announced the second planned DLC pack called The Warrior Queen, but did not set a release date for that content as of yet.
