IMG Unveils EB Expo Interview Videos
6:00 AM | Andrew Lennox | Comment on this story

With the EB Games Expo finishing last Sunday, Inside Mac Games was able to attend and give you everything Mac related. While the AAA titles dominated the main arena there was little if any Mac related news to report. Even the Epic Mickey booth, the only disclosed Mac ported franchise, only showed off the motion control components of its PS3 port.

Just as we were about to turn away from the lack of relevance in the vast expanse of this console dominated world, we decided to poke our heads into another section at the expo called "Home Grown". Here there were a number of local Australian developers showing their latest creations. To our surprise many of these were either offering their games on iOS or the Mac natively. Because of this new revelation, we turned our attention to these interesting developers instead.

We conducted a total of four interviews and over the next couple of days we'll be showing you the results. Today we're offering our interviews with Ryan Alcock of Blunt Instrument and Dan Clayton of Dime Studios. The developers offered us glimpses of their games Missile Control and Tasty Fish.

It was a great experience talking to these guys and hearing how their blood sweat and tears have helped them create something they are proud of and truly passionate about. We hope you enjoy!

LEGO Batman 2 Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld UK has posted a new review of Feral Interactive's LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. Developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for consoles, handhelds and Windows PC, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes "takes the much-loved brick-based action of LEGO games to the next level with an intricate open-world structure and sparkling dialogue."

The Lego series of games has been very successful, so the developers havenít tried to change their winning formula. Most of the time youíll be playing as either Batman or Robin, as the dynamic duo take on the combined forces of The Joker and Lex Luthor. The action is simple but enjoyable, mostly consisting of running, jumping and constantly hitting the Ďactioní button in order to thump the hordes of hired henchman that come swarming onto each level.

Fortunately, the level design is varied and entertaining, with a number of puzzles thrown in to make you stop and think from time to time. This sequel also brings along a few of Batmanís super-pals from the Justice League, including Superman, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman. Much of the fun lies in switching from character to character and using their different powers to solve problems and escape from tight spots.
Check out the full review at the link below.
