With all the visuals going into Warner Bros. Man of Steel you would almost forget that it’s filled with very talented actors.

It’s getting ever closer to the October release of the highly anticipated Batman: Arkham City and like most games it comes with awesome pre-order surprises. When Rocksteady and Warner Bros. got together and decided to make a sequel to 2009’s Batman: Arkham Asylum they never expected the impact it would have. The game is already on it’s way to being more bat-tacular than the original and choosing which costume you want is going to be tough.

They all look awesome but I’d personally go for The Animated Series skin, that brings back some good memories. For those of you looking to get access to any of these costumes here’s the information on each one.

The upcoming videogame, Portal 2, has just become available to pre-order. Commence rejoicing!

You can pre-order the game here, which (as a special pre-order bonus), comes with free downloadable skins for the co-op robots.

But, the most exciting thing today was that the brains behind Portal, created a special video commemorating Valentine’s Day from Aperture Science (which makes all the funky death traps, homicidal robots and guns).

Watch the hilarious video below. And remember, everything is better when you think with portals!
