Batman: Arkham City Game Of The Year Edition Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Feral Interactive's Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition is now available. Developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for consoles and PC, Batman: Arkham City GOTY features all previously released downloadable content, including the Harley Quinn’s Revenge pack.

“Swooping above rooftops and using the grapnel to zip between buildings gives the player an incredible sense of freedom,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “Arkham City is complex, sinister and surprising: the perfect playground for Batman.”

The Dark Knight descends.

A year after the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum, Quincy Sharp, the new mayor of Gotham, has turned its slums into Arkham City, a terrifying open-air prison where violent thugs and insane super-villains are incarcerated within heavily fortified walls.

When Batman is imprisoned alongside Gotham’s most notorious, he must discover Arkham City’s true purpose before it’s too late. This intense, atmospheric sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum plunges Batman deep into a gothic nightmare from which he will need all his wits, gadgetry and skill to escape.

IMG Reviews Inbetween Land
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of G5 Entertainment's Inbetween Land. The adventure puzzler challenges players to find their lost friend Mary and help a group of extraterrestrials find their way home. Inbetween Land features 50 locations, 19 puzzles to solve, and three game modes.

Inbetween Land has just the kind of graphics you’d expect from a title of this nature, albeit at the high-quality end of the scale. There’s nothing graphically demanding here, in that most scenes are basically static, with just a touch of appropriate animation here and there. But the pre-rendered scenes are very well done, and attractive to behold. It’s a pleasing game to look at, but it won’t need a fancy graphics card.

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

Mac|Life has posted a new review of Aspyr Media's Borderlands 2. The sequel continues the series trademark blending of first person shooter and role playing game elements with action packed gameplay and zany humor. It features all new characters and classes, cross platform online play, a new story, new gun system, new environments, and new enemies.

From the review:

While Borderlands 2 still focuses on the shoot-and-loot, quest-based gameplay that made the original game so popular, the deep storyline is a vast improvement. Non-player characters are actually a pleasure to encounter, and the plot -- about corporate thug Handsome Jack's dominance over Pandora and its Eridium mineral deposits – proves just as intriguing as the ever-present need to find the best weapon imaginable.

Speaking of weapons, or more accurately crazy guns: Borderlands 2 has an absolutely insane amount of unique ordnance. The first Borderlands kept players chugging along and pairing up with a few buddies to find the rarest items around. Borderlands 2 takes that idea to extreme lengths. Granted, the plot is enough to make the quest-line interesting, but the possibility of finding some insanely powerful gun or a grenade mod capable of lobbing 10 explosives at the same time is joyfully addictive.
