preGame 56: Bastion

This week, Jeff and Mark take a look at Batman: Arkham City's Collectors Edition, figure out whether or not the next Xbox will have Avatar graphics, and finish up with a live demo of Bastion!


preGame returns with a live demo of the first title off the Microsoft Summer of Arcade line up. Tune in to catch a live in-studio demo of the retro-inspired action-RPG, Bastion!

With summer in full swing, gaming news is a bit scarce, so we've rounded up the best headlines from the past few weeks. We'll get things rolling with a chat about the newly announced Batman: Arkham City Collector's Edition and what gamers can expect to find in the $100 bundle.

Next, we'll discuss the fallout from the controversy that was forwarding visitors to the URL to the Battlefield 3 Web site. Finally, we'll examine some of the comments made by AMD's Neal Robison who said the next Xbox will feature graphics on par with "Avatar."
