Black Ops II treads the topical line by having its central villain hailed as a hero by the poor. A bit like Bane in the new Batman movie, or Electro in the Spider-Man comic a while back. The above trailer shows how he's manipulating the class divide, and threatens to wipe out the civilized world. (Jim Sterling)
According to Variety, Rocksteady is working on a Batman: Arkham City prequel that's set in the Silver Age. It'll tell the story of how Batman first met The Joker, and will seemingly carry much of the 50s aesthetic with it, as opposed to the dark and modern take we've seen in previous games. (Jim Sterling)

The reactionary pit of creative bankruptcy that is Hollywood has its sights trained on Deus Ex, the latest videogame primed to be adapted by moviemakers who have no ideas of their own. CBS Films has acquired the rights to turn the events of Human Revolution into a thing we can watch. (Jim Sterling)
Hollywood isn't done abusing videogames yet, it seems. The long dormant God of War film adaptation is getting renewed thanks to Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, writers of the four latest Saw films and a draft for Guillermo del Toro's upcoming epic Pacific Rim. (Allistair Pinsof)
