PC players frustrated by the continuing problems with Batman: Arkham Knight can still enjoy wreaking havoc with the game’s tank-like Batmobile … in Grand Theft Auto V.

This video depicts the three PC mods in action — one for the Tumbler, one for the textures, and one for the nitro boost. Combined, they’re pretty spectacular, allowing the Dark Knight to take out everyone and everything in his path. Just not in Gotham City.

arkham knight3

When Batman: Arkham Knight was finally re-released last week for PC, both players and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment hoped their troubles were over. Alas, that wasn’t the case.

After a four-month absence from Steam, during which the glitches the led to the game’s abrupt removal were expected to be fixed, Arkham Knight returned still broken. Seemingly conceding defeat, Warner Bros. announced over the weekend it will offer full refunds through the end of the year to anyone who purchased the PC version.

Han Solo faces Darth Vader in new ‘Star Wars Battlefront’ trailer

battlefront-han

EA Games has debuted a new trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront that not only offers a look at gameplay and settings but also demonstrates how players can add their own twists to the saga.

Billed as a way for fans to immersive themselves in epic battles from Star Wars, we see that won’t merely be a walk down memory lane. In the trailer, Princess Leia confronts Boba Fett (who this time avoids the Sarlacc, injecting a bit of humor into the situation), while Han Solo rushes past Snowtroopers on Hoth to face Darth Vader himself.

Created by JulioNIB, the mod allows Marvel’s roaring Green Goliath to leap through the air, hurl vehicles and wield a street lamp like an enormous club. This Hulk is even armed with his signature thunderclap.

Nostalgic ‘Star Wars Battlefront’ TV spot will make you feel things

battlefront1

If the building anticipation for the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer doesn’t have you feeling like a kid again, PlayStation’s live-action holiday commercial for Star Wars Battlefront will undoubtedly do the trick.

Delightfully nostalgic, the live-action TV spot features a bored office worker holding a battered R2-D2 action figure and reflecting on all the fun Star Wars fantasy adventures he and his brother (?) had as children. I won’t spoil the ending, but the message is pretty clear: They don’t have to end with childhood.

Luke Skywalker meets hilarious end in ‘Star Wars Battlefront’ clip

battlefront

The Star Wars saga would’ve unfolded a lot differently had Luke Skywalker emerged as the hero of the Battle of Yavin and survived a wampa attack only to meet his end during the Battle of Hoth. With the young Jedi out of the picture, Darth Vader and the Emperor might have crushed the Rebellion.

Speaking of crushed, Luke does come to an unceremonious end in this funny footage from the Star Wars Battlefront beta, although not from a wampa or in a snowspeeder crash. Instead, death comes beneath the massive foot of an Imperial Walker. It’s a bit undignified for a Jedi.
