Trailers for Batman: Arkham City, Thor: God of Thunder debut on Spike

Several new trailers for video games debuted during the Spike Video Game Awards last night, including Batman: Arkham City (above) and Thor: God of Thunder. The Batman one in particular is interesting, as it reveals not only the villainous Hugo Strange, but also a piece of knowledge that he has about the Caped Crusader. Maybe he went to the Batman Inc. press conference and put two and two together.

In terms of last night’s winners, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game took the best adapted video game category, beating out Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions and games featuring Harry Potter, Star Wars and Transformers. But Spider-Man didn’t go home empty-handed, as the voice talents of awards host Neil Patrick Harris won best performance by a human male for his work in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. You can find the list of winners on Spike’s VGA site.

Since Scott Pilgrim was kind of adapted fromvideo games, it probably had a bit of an unfair edge in terms of successful adaptation to a video game. ;-)

Seriously though, most of these games sound great lately, really. We’ve come a long way from the Scott Adams (not that Scott Adams) series of Marvel text adventures!
