Batman: Arkham City PC Review

When you speak about Batman: Arkham City, you speak about not only the next chapter in a line of games that've redefined the superhero genre of video games, but have taken the ultra-immersive nature of the detective / puzzle solving game and have made it intuitive enough to be enjoyable for all - and the graphics are absolutely unmatched.

Zelda 3DS special edition set for USA release

It is finally time all you lovers of the Zelda series who've put off picking up a Nintendo 3DS for long enough, time for the Zelda 25th Anniversary 3DS to hit US shores, complete with black casing, gold accents, and Ocaria of Time 3D right there in the box. Thus far the rumors have been that this would only be an international release - and indeed up until now you'd have had to think about importing one later this month here to the USA, but what we're hearing today is that both Best Buy and GameStop will be carrying the package come Black Friday. That's the 25th of November, next week, if you're keeping track, and we're guessing you'll want to get to the store rather early the day before and tent up if you plan on being there in time to grab one.
