From The Nerd Cave: March 6, 2014

So is this blog weekly now? It’s certainly starting to look that way. I honestly meant to post an update days ago, but then South Park: The Stick of Truth happened and, well, you can piece the rest together yourself.

By the way, it’s worth pointing out that The Stick of Truth — developed by Obsidian Studios in collaboration with South Park Digital Studios — is one of those rare licensed video games that’s simultaneously faithful to the source material and wholly engaging as a stand-alone piece of entertainment. South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker were hands-on during the game’s production, and it shows throughout the crude, disgusting and oddly charming experience. Whether you’re a casual fan or one of those kids who was rarely seen without a South Park shirt in the late 1990s (ahem), The Stick of Truth is a hilarious must-have.

Speaking of kick-ass licensed games, Game Informer gave us our first look at Batman: Arkham Knight, Rocksteady Studios’ latest installment in its critically acclaimed Arkham series. I’ve been holding off on fully embracing next-gen gaming consoles, but I think this was the push I needed. Because Batmobile, that’s why.

Check out the trailer below.
