E3 truly is the best time of the year for video gamers. Everything looks fantastic, and we’re still too far away to know what’s going to turn out to be crap. Regardless of what hits and what misses, it’s almost a given that any entry in the Batman: Arkham series will be a success, and I’m happy to say that the first gameplay trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight doesn’t disappoint!

When i was asked to cover E3‘s release of the new Star Wars trailer, I came close to crapping myself! An Episode 7 trailer? At E3? ALREADY???

Well, as you’ve no doubt gathered from the headline, E3 has NOT released a trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII….
