We’re back with more geekery for today!

Warner Bros. Interactive announced the details on the North American edition of the Batman: Arkham Origins Collectors’ Edition. And folks, this thing is huge- with collectables both tangible and virtual for both PS3 and X-Box 360.


All of this will not fit in Batman’s Utility Belt.

Here’s a sample of what you can expect in the box:

This Collector’s edition will set you back $119.99, and is available now.


Last night, (Monday 8/13/12) saw the premiere of Syfy’s new reality show “Heroes of Cosplay” featuring several Heroes-of-Cosplay-logo-wide-560x282prominent members of the cosplay community. Reviews of the show in general have been mixed, with critics and fans on both sides of the “is it good/is it bad for cosplayers” argument.

However, one group has landed on the far side of the “it’s bad” category. Going so far as to set up an online petition on to have the show changed or simply yanked from the air.

The petition itself is credited only to “Cosplayers” but as of this writing has 391 supporters. Time will tell how many more may sign on- but as we all know, very few online petitions go anywhere. Best vote with your remotes, folks.



This next item came across our desk, and we just had to share. From Denmark, here’s the trailer for “Antboy“:

This actually has us excited for a US arthouse release. How about you?
