• Congratulations for not sucking: Batman: Arkham Asylum gets Guinness World Record. It was revealed today that Batman: Arkham Asylum received an official Guinness World Record for, get this, being the “Most Critically Acclaimed Superhero Game Ever.” Uh-oh — Superman is gonna be pissssssed. [1UP]
• Not again: Another Square Enix teaser site for…Modern Warfare 2? Yeah, this one is a wee bit strange — not only does it show the same number “2” used in Modern Warfare 2 font, but it also has the copyright details for both Call of Duty and Activision at the bottom of the page. Guess that means Square Enix is publishing Modern Warfare 2 in Japan. Pfft — and we thought Activison Blizzard was the biggest publisher in the world. [VG247]
