    Duela Dent has claimed to be the daughter of Joker, Catwoman, Penguin, Scarecrow, Two-Face, and Riddler. After joining the Teen Titans, she changed her name to Harlequin. Yes, she is one of the most confusing characters in all of comics. That's why most people refer to her as "Joker's Daughter." More

    This longtime DC comic character may be getting a new identity.

  • Mobile Pick: Tiny Thief

    6

    A couple of weeks ago I asked my Twitter followers if they had stumbled upon any fun adventure games for iPhone. Ever since I read our magazine feature on Double Fine's upcoming title, Broken Age, I've been looking forward to setting off on an adventure in the vein of LucasArts' classics. More

    This gorgeous stealth/puzzler is worth a look.

  • I’m Hooked On 3DS' StreetPass Again

    11

    I purchased my first 3DS (I now have two 3DS XLs) on launch day. In that first week, my coworkers and I played the living hell out of this handheld. We made sure we had them at work so we could connect via StreetPass to collect all of the puzzle pieces and finish off Find Mii’s dungeon. More

    The Game Informer staff is trading puzzle pieces again. We're also enjoying a new Mii-based game.

    Hats off to the creative minds at NECA Toys who came up with the idea of creating a toy based on Jason Voorhees' appearance in the NES game, Friday the 13th. The figure is currently a San Diego Comic Con exclusive, meaning you'll have to be at this week's show to get it. More

  • If You Enjoyed Sharknado...

    25

    I don't like giving myself titles, but it would be silly of me not to call myself an expert on stupid science fiction shark movies. I missed Sharknado last night (and likely won't watch it until it hits Blu-Ray), but I have seen a ridiculous number of films about mutated, killer sharks. More

  • A Day In The Life Of My Animal Crossing Character

    21 1

    My wife and I have been playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf every day since June 9 (the game's release date and my birthday).My town is called Eden. Should you ever have the chance to visit this paradise, you'll find that none of the residents are happy, because the mayor ignores them and spends all of his time digging up dinosaur bones and collecting Nintendo memorabilia. More

    My town is covered in weeds and has seen little growth since I took over as mayor. Here's why.

  • Pacific Rim Lands An Amazing And Expensive Statue

    9

    I'm a big fan of Guillermo del Toro's work. From Hellboy to Pan's Labyrinth, the man knows how to sell a vision and adapt well-known properties to the big screen. His latest film, Pacific Rim, opens this week, and is easily my most anticipated film of the year. Giant robots battling Godzilla-like monstrosities, starring the leading actors from Sons of Anarchy...what's not to love? More

    I need a new statue for my desk. A giant Godzilla-like creature sounds like the right choice.

  • The Comics I Read Every Month

    39 2

    Few people in the world likely wake up every Wednesday morning as excited as I am. Why am I so giddy? Wednesday is what I call "Comic Book Day." All new comic books hit store shelves on this day. I'm usually standing outside my comic book shop's doors minutes before they open to ensure I don't miss out on any new releases. More

    I've been reading Batman comics since I was a young lad. Here are the books I currently read every month.

  • A Lego Star Wars Set Unlike Any Other

    10

    I arrived at work today to find a mysterious Lego Star Wars box sitting on my desk. The message "secrets to reveal there are" is written on one of the sides. The rest of the box is covered in what would appear to be Lego lights, some of them flashing. More

  • Here's Why Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen Doesn't Have New Achievements & Trophies

    9

    Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is one of the games I was looking forward to playing the most this year. Given my somewhat psychotic desire to reach 200,000 gamerscore as quickly as possible (I currently sit at 199,454), my interest in this expansion nosedived a few days ago. I discovered Capcom didn’t create any new achievements for it, and I had to know why. More

    Like From Software's Dark Souls before it, Dark Arisen has earned a reputation for delivering punishing battles. The difference is that the thrill of overcoming great odds in Capcom's latest won’t be heralded by a satisfying “boop-boop."

    Due to the shaky stability of Defiance’s Xbox 360 servers during my gaming hours, I haven’t been able invest as much time as I’ve wanted to into this massively multiplayer shooting experience. Kelly, my lovely wife, has graciously given me a nice window to play Defiance this weekend. More
