Batman: Arkham Knight PC owners can now get a full refund

Less than a week after the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight's re-release following an original bug-riddled launch, Warner Bros. has recognized the train-wreck condition the game is still in, and is now offering customers a full refund.

It has been a long, frustrating waiting game, but the journey is finally over and Batman: Arkham Knight has been re-released for the PC.

Rock Band 4 developer’s workers found posting Amazon reviews

Rock Band 4 developer’s workers found posting Amazon reviews

Earlier this week, Amazon filed a lawsuit against more than a thousand individuals who allegedly offered to post fake reviews on Amazon in exchange for measly sums of money. The company did this for the expected reasons: fake reviews result in jaded customers, and the value of the company’s reviews plummet. In light of that, it is especially bad timing for employees of Rock Band 4’s developer, Harmonix, to get caught posting positive reviews for its own video game.
