    Batman: Arkham City

    Arkham City stands out alone as a awesome Batman game, but also a fantastic follow up from 2009's Batman: Arkham Asylum

    In my original review of Arkham Asylum back in 2009 I made comment on how much attention had been placed onto Batman in the past decade. With said decade well and truly over, it's fair to say by two h...

    Rock Band 3 is starting to show signs of slowing down, but with added elements such as keyboard, it remains fresh.

    Saying it right now; I bypassed Rock Band 2. So due to the publishers inability to give Australia a local release of the game, I look at Rock Band 3 as a massive leap forward; since the only foundatio...

    Alan Wake, while not being the genre defining game many hoped for, is an entertaining and enjoyable experience

    Alan Wake could be described in a few different ways. Silent Hill clone, slow paced Resident Evil knock off, cheesy video game version of a Stephen King novel. All are probably true, but in my opinion...
