Batman: Arkham Knight Trailer, Skyrim Pirate Mod and Google Games

Feb 26, 2015

In game news this week, we’ve got a brand new trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight, one of the most anticipated video games of the year. It’s also got a rating that is going to make a lot of kids unhappy. We’ve got a mod for Skyrim that adds in pirates and Google learns how to play video games on its own! Check it all out below!

Batman: Arkham Knight Gets a New Trailer and an “M” Rating

This week we got a brand new trailer for the highly anticipated and very delayed Batman: Arkham Knight. This is, of course, the fourth game in the series, coming after Arkham Asylum, Arkham City and Arkham Origins. All the classic villains are back, including Poison Ivy, Scarecrow, Two-Face and the Riddler, though we have yet to see the Joker. The game is centered around a mysterious villain and has one major difference from earlier games. This one is rated “M for Mature” so you’ll have to get your parents to grab it for you. In addition, you’ll get to drive around in the Batmobile.

Rocksteady Games will release Batman: Arkham Knight for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on June 2nd!

Google AI Plays Video Games All On Its Own

Well, we’re one step closer to Skynet taking over today. Google’s AI has learned to play video games on its own. Google's DeepMind AI has the ability to beat 49 Atari games all by itself. The crazy part of this is that DeepMind AI learned to do this all on its own! The technique used here was positive reinforcement, something used frequently to train animals and humans. When the computer beat a high score or reached a new level, it got a reward. Anyone else a tiny bit freaked out? Be nice to your toaster or it may turn on you someday!
