BlizzCon 2009, ‘Fable 3′ Trailer, ‘Batman’ Straitjacket – Multiplayer’s Top Stories

Friday’s here once again. Things are really coming into their own with regards to gaming news, as we had a truckload of new info this week regarding the lead-up to BlizzCon, next week’s “Batman” game and the next “Fable. Oh, and giant blue cats making out in “Avatar.” Here were the week’s top 5 stories:

— The “Fable 3″ trailer was revealed for the first time at GamesCom 2009. It was, well, very Molyneux-y.

BlizzCon is going on right now. We ran a bunch of stories in the lead-up, so check the BlizzCon tag for all the info on “World of WarCraft: Cataclysm,” “Diablo 3″ and “StarCraft 2.”

— The “Avatar” movie trailer got released. It was kinda stupid, but it did have a lot of stuff that’ll be in the game.

— My review copy of “Batman: Arkham Asylum” came with a straitjacket. No, that’s not why I liked it.

— We had the exclusive first “Lego Rock Band” gameplay trailer. It has Legos in it.
