GOG.com is happy to announce that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is the newest addition to the GOG.com family of partners.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment won eight awards at Spike TV’s 2011 Video Game Awards (VGAs) which premiered live Saturday, December 10.
Batman: Arkham City, the critically acclaimed videogame developed by Rocksteady Studios, was honored with four awards: Best Action Adventure Game, Best Xbox 360 Game, Character of the Year, and Best Adapted Video Game. The game builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players flying through the expansive Arkham City – five times larger than the game world in Batman: Arkham Asylum. Batman: Arkham City currently stands as one of the highest reviewed games of 2011 on Metacritic.com where it is ranked #1 and #3 for PlayStation3 and Xbox 360, with average review scores of 96 and 94, respectively.

A new kind of apocalypse has occurred, named “The Calamity” and it has struck this beautiful watercolor world. You are the Kid – the sole survivor of the world that’s been shattered around you during your slumber. One thing that becomes apparent is that the narrator is not scripted in the sense that he says the same thing at the specific points of the game. Instead, the narrator details YOUR adventure as how you play it. With each movement or action, the Stranger as he comes to be known has something to say – each unique and not likely to repeat.
Microsoft has released the details to this year’s Summer of Arcade, and it looks to be a scorcher with some amazing games. Focusing on some of the smaller, indie developers out there.
