Batman: Arkham City

Games based on movies and comics are rarely well received. They generally come with a stigma of failure and “shoddy workmanship” that has been associated with said games for many years now. It was with trepidation that I picked up Batman: Arkham Asylum when it was released in 2009 after hearing my brother raving about it being the best thing since sliced bread. The game did not disappoint, it was an incredibly well polished, immersive game that sucked you right in and made you hold on for dear life as the world’s greatest detective battled some of the most well known and feared super villains of comic book history.

Batman: Arkham City picks up where its predecessor left off and to say I was eagerly anticipating getting my hands on this game would be an understatement, luckily, Rocksteady Studios did not disappoint me. Read more…

Bejeweled 3!

Like many people out there, I have an addiction to Bejeweled.  I must have been living under some kind of rock, because I had no idea that Bejeweled 3 was in the works for console, or even that it was available to download from Xbox LIVE Arcade this very minute!  After testing it out, I thought I would share some things for others who may also be living under a similar rock.

Dead Island

Techland’s Dead Island is a brand new co-operative open-world zombie apocalypse game which is very reminiscent of the hit game Borderlands by Gearbox Software. It’s almost as if it’s simply a re-skinned zombie version of the game and yet so much more. Read more…

Jetpack Joyride

After hearing all the hype about this highly anticipated new iPhone game from Halfbrick which we all know for its largely successful game Fruit Ninja, I decided to purchase Jetpack Joyride and see what all the fuss is about. I admit that I was pleasantly surprised. Read more…

Sid Meier’s Pirates! for iPad

2K Games and Firaxis Games, the creative minds behind the Civilization series have just ported another of their classic games to the iPad. “Sid Meier’s Pirates! for iPad” is a simulation game where you sail the seas of the Caribbean in the 1600’s as a pirate (surprised?) on a quest for gold and wenches… well there may not be wenches but there is gold aplenty me hearties.

The Podfather/Convo Controller
Super salesman by day, Batdad and Gamersutra by night. As a self-confessed technology pacifist, he prefers to sit on the console-war fence and play games on his PC.
PlayStation Fanboy/Motormouth
Electrician by trade and yet also highly skilled at finding time to game around work and family commitments. A PlayStation fanboy with a platinum count and obvious podcast bias to prove it. Thinks DC is clearly superior to Marvel. Has been known to rant.
