New gameplay footage of DC Universe Online was released at New York Comic Con at the weekend, showing PvP action with villainous players.
After the jump. It’s a walkthrough featuring a scary-looking clown (as opposed to any other kind) who has inhuman strength, loads of speed and psi-blasts to top it all off.
Take a look for yourself.

Gears of War 2 writer Josh Ortega told a panel at Comic Con this weekend that Epic has a ten-year plan for the Gears of War franchise. These are words we’re very glad to hear.
“You will not be disappointed in the next ten years,” Ortega said. “It’s a ten-year plan. Gears is long-term. The lancer is the new lightsaber.”
Yes please, Josh. So when’s the third one out, then? Thanks, IGN.

The upcoming GTA: Chinatown Wars is to have a “replay feature,” according to a flyer handed out on the DS game at Comic Con this weekend.
The game will also have head-to-head and co-op options, as well as stat tacking and leaderboards.
Looks like it may well be time to dust off your little white man. It’s out on March 20.

Cryptic showed more on Star Trek Online at Comic Con this weekend, specifically on its Alien Creator. There’s a video of it in action after the break.
The tool’s used for… creating aliens. You can basically play as any race you can come up with in the MMO.
Cryptic says there are “thousands” of possible combinations for your freakish weirdo backwater space inhabitants. There’s a bit more on it here.
Have a watch.

Superheroes everywhere. Acitvision’s got into the Comic Con spirit by releasing a Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2: Fusion trailer, and very super it looks too. After the break.
The action RPG will be high on the list for super-fans, what with its warring superheroes, super effects and ability to combine powers.
No firm details on this, but PS3 and 360′s a given. No date.

GTA: Chinatown Wars will be playable at New York’s Comic Con this weekend, according to this Kotaku story.
The DS game will be found at Rockstar’s booth, #1563.
We suspect this may be a popular exhibit, so if you’re going to bother trying to get close to it take a bat, or something.
