Batmobile

With Zoe not here, I’m taking over see! Wired Wednesday belongs to the D now! SO WHAT’CHU GONNA DO, WHEN TEAMD-MANIA RUNS WILD ALL OVER YOU?! Usually, Zoe populates Wired Wednesday with something silly, like a curved TV or your mom’s neck massager. Not me. I’m posting an image of something that is fictional in a real-world style. I am of course, talking about the Batmobile. And not just any Batmobile, but the latest in crime-fighting technology that’ll steal the show in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

I mean, just look at it. It’s a proper car, that much like every other Batmobile ever made for the films, actually works. It’s a piece of art, and a lethal panther on four wheels. And I’ve yet to steal it off the movie lot…successfully.

Here’s the news we didn’t post today, because we were too busy tripping on a combination of Redbull, electric shocks and paint fumes in order to get content out today.

  1. I feel like we either need a Batman Beyond or a 1950s Batman. Everything is so similar these days. Captain America kept it interesting in that way with the first film at least.
    BUT…I’m not complaining, I’m super amped up for Batman vs Superman!

    Seriously though, I can smell it burning. Are you sure you wired it up correctly?

            Or like an EA game

          • Corrie

            May 6, 2015 at 16:19

            No No not like that it’s partially on disc just that they “needed the extra time to polish those chrome wheels” and obviously that costs money so in order to make the consumer happy and recoup their losses it’ll go for $4.99

          • Pariah

            May 6, 2015 at 16:20

            At least EA can make females.

          • Captain JJ Fantasticus

            May 6, 2015 at 16:21

            If they spend as much time programming as they do moulding the backside of a female character we’d have stellar games from EA.

            And it needs to be wirelessly connected at all times to run?

          • Corrie

            May 6, 2015 at 16:22

            And as well Origin requires a sacrifice in order to start the game

            You get an invite code you have to redeem on the site when you get the mail. That’s probably why.

      I’ve got it, haven’t really used it much – just installed the one game to see that it worked. Right now it’s just a client that looks very similar to and has the same basic functionality as the site – store, library, all that. Pretty user friendly.
