"Batman: Arkham Origins" comes with an update for its PS3, Xbox 360 and PC versions, and this will introduce the new Hunter, Hunted competitive mode the next time gamers go and play the online multi-player component.

Here, players will have to choose which role they'll play as - Batman, one of Joker's three henchmen or one of Bane's three thugs - and try to survive the team-based map with just one shot to life.

According to Joystiq, Hunter, Hunted will be part of a free update, but it's not part of any DLC lineups. A story DLC will come up in 2014 as part of the Season Pass.

'J-Stars Victory Vs' Gets More Characters, a Demo and a DLC

The brawler game that joins all of players' favorite Shonen heroes, "J-Stars Victory Vs," is getting a playable demo via the Japanese PlayStation Network. However, only the PS Vita will have the demo.

The roster of fighters in "J-Star Victory Vs" will see the addition of three more characters in the game, Jonathan Joestar and Joseph Joestar from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, and Meisuke "Nuubee" Nueno from Jigoku Sensei Nube, reports Anime News Network.

*Those interested can still get an Xbox One via Amazon, but it's a race to see who can get the best remaining offers. Read here for more.

One last development that has been repored for "J-Stars Victory Vs" includes the announcement that there will be no additional fighters for the game via paid DLC. This seems to be justified, reports Siliconera, considering the very large pool of fighters, as well as more unannounced characters, lined up to be revealed as the release date of the game nears.

Explosion.com reports that Namco Bandai has still yet to announce any western release dates, although it has already been dated for a March 19, 2014 release in Japan. But there is a glimmer of hope, as a domain for "Awakened Legends Vs" has been registered by Namco Bandai Europe, which is speculated to be a localised name for "J-Stars Victory Vs."

*Valve has finally released its own prototype for the Steam Machine: Read the details here.
