Welcome back to a new episode of Next Gen News, CraveOnline’s weekly gaming podcast with your hosts Joey Davidson, Alex Keen, Mike White and myself, Erik Norris.

This week’s show sees us cover the pros and cons of the mighty marketing machine. We use Batman: Arkham City as our platform, explaining why such a heavy marketing push can be both a blessing and a curse. We then take some time to talk about how frustrating retailer-specific pre-order DLC is. Why, oh why do we have to buy games from multiple outlets to get the full experience? Lastly, we discuss what Nathan Drake and $5 foot longs have in common. Yup, detours, we love 'em.
