The Many Announcements of Origins

jessmJess:  Now that Origins is past, there is a lot of news about upcoming games. I can’t cover them all in one post, but lets see how many we can fit in!

First up…


Teen Titans fans are you ready to party? Cryptozoic is releasing Teen Titans Go! in July 2015. The game, based of the fun DC comic series, is a deck builder where you get to play as one of your favorite characters like Beast Boy, Raven, Wonder Girl, or Red Robin. You’ll build up your deck with attacks to kick some super villain butt.
