Harley Quinn’s Revenge Review: More of the same

Harley Quinn’s Revenge picks up two days after the end of Batman: Arkham City. Batman has been missing for two days since investigating the kidnapping of several cops by Harley Quinn and her goons. This sets up for Robin to come in with the help of Oracle to find Batman and find out what went wrong. It’s an interesting premise that allows you to take control of Robin, who we only get a glimpse of in the main storyline of the game.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II official for November 13 release

Activision unsurprisingly revealed the newest Call of Duty to come later this year. The UK version of the Call of Duty website unveiled Call of Duty: Black Ops II this morning before the full reveal coming later tonight during the NBA Playoffs on TNT. A few screenshots were found on the site’s backend along with the description, “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 propels players into a near future, 21st Century Cold War, where technology and weapons have converged to create a new generation of warfare.” The screenshots depict a near future setting in Los Angeles with advanced weapons and drones similar to those seen in Homefront or Battlefield 2142. Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on the official release date of November 13, 2012. Activision has yet to give any information about how Call of Duty Elite will integrate with Black Ops II.
