It's time for a new Injustice DLC and this time it's the alien from Mars himself, Martian Manhunter!

In a great gameplay trailer (unlike the Mad Max gameplay trailer), we get a chance to see Martian Manhunter fight John Stewart, member of the Green Lantern Corps which is a Green Lantern skin available as well in the DLC.

Looks pretty good right? I'm particularly a fan of the "blink and John Stewart looks around confused" move. 

No word yet on when this DLC will drop.

Need more video games news today? How about checking out this story on Desert Bus, the worst game ever!

On the opposite end of the spectrum where my Top 10 Summer Video Games sit on one end, the mid-90s gem Desert Bus sits on the other. 

Simon Parkin of the New Yorker recently wrote an article on just how boring Desert Bus is and I thought to myself, "really? Can it be that bad?"

Well 99 cents and fifteen minutes later... yes, yes it can.

We are in the midst of summer and while the fall and holiday times are the more traditional big video game release times, summer has some gems as well. So I present - My Top Ten Summer Games!!! 

And the crowd goes wild!!!

Okay, let's do this.

10. NHL14 -- September 10th

Had you told me yesterday that NHL14 would even come close to a "most anticipated" list, I would have laughed in your face. Now? Well thanks to the NHL94 Anniversary mode trailer this quickly became a most wanted.

9. Payday 2 -- August 13th

I really enjoyed the first Payday and this sequel would be higher up on the list if I didn't already play the stealth mission based, Hitman. That and I just can not get past the fact that you are able to still hold a gun with two hands while carrying a body.

So apparently everything that was old is now new again. Yesterday I laughed about returning to 1982 with this Rambo video game trailer but now we are heading back to 1994.

With this "NHL 94 Anniversary Mode" trailer, as part of NHL 14!

Before this moment, NHL 14 wasn't even a blip on my radar. I'm still playing NHL 08 and haven't felt the need to upgrade. Until today. 

NHL 94 was one of the greatest old school games ever. Eh-ver.

After the awfulness that was the Rambo video game trailer, we get a good look at one of my most anticipated new games with the Assassin's Creed 4 trailer.

The Assassin's Creed franchise has always excelled at beautiful art and it looks like AC4 is no different. Not only that but what an upgrade we get in this newest game.

From a horse to now Captain of a ship? Yes, please.

When I woke up this morning my first thought was, "man I really wish there was a new Rambo game I could play and relive all those fabulous 80s era memories" and like manna from heaven... here it is! 

Check out the Rambo game trailer below!

Admittedly, I have not kept up (read: watched anything beyond the first twenty minutes of the first movie) with the Rambo franchise so I really couldn't tell you which movie this game was based on, if any at all.

However, I can say that Stallone has never looked better. His skin is so smooth with just the right amount of stubble. Well done. Truly.

Grand Theft Auto has long held the stigma of being "that game where you shoot everyone and run over hookers" but it appears they are trying to class up their act with Grand Theft Auto V.

Yes, we can discuss how there's three main characters now instead of just the one. Sure, it'd be easy to focus on 'voyeur' aspect included with those three characters. 

However, I'd rather take a moment and talk about the leisure aspects in this new Grand Theft Auto ...

For a Potterhead like myself, the world seemed to come to a slight screeching halt when the last movie came out. What were we going to do? What did we have to look forward to?

Thankfully Pottermore was announced in 2011, and the magical anticipation was renewed. Then this past year, Playstation got in the game and Sony brought Pottermore to Playstation Home.

You can walk through Diagon Alley and unlike the Google Maps Harry Potter Universe, this is all interactive. Go have your wand choose you in Olivanders and visit the Weasley twins in their shop. 

You can ride the Hogwarts Express, visit the Great Hall, and after you've linked your Pottermore account, you can even hang out in your House's Great Room.

Oh, NCAA Football, why do I continue to get drawn in to your web?

Every year I tell myself, I will not buy this game again and yet every year, here I am - day of launch and my fingers itching to play. 

One of the biggest selling points of NCAA Football 14 is better control over the option. Georgia Tech and Navy fans rejoice! The rest of us? Meh.
