id Software has finally unleashed their new FPS into gamer's hands, but is it any good? Thankfully it is, although it isn't without its share of controversy. As a life-long id fan, I couldn't possibly bring myself to play Rage on a console, so I played the PC version...and that just so happens to be the one that's causing fits of nerd rage across the internet. Rage is affected by the annoying "con... more.

Instead of writing up a detailed review of a game that's six years old, I'm just going to give you an impassioned plea to buy the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Collection for the PS3. Released this week for a decent $40, the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Collection is the latest in PlayStation 2 re-releases being upscaled to HD and slapped on a Blu-Ray. Sony is really doing this after removing PS2 backw... more.

Admittedly this has come a little later than I had hoped. This is largely down to a fancy old hoo-hah (to use the entirely technical terminology), which delayed the general release of Space Marine in the UK, that many people suspect involves one or two of our bigger national retailers. Many people have ... more.

If fixed many of the problems with the original game's interface, and while it wasn't completely bug free; it was a great adaptation of the game and a really great way to teach new players the game without much investment... more.

You may well remember a certain trailer that received widespread acclaim and made many people aware of the Dead Island title. Well it's now been released (rather shakily at that!) and is receiving all manner of attention; the dev-build that was released for PC users naturally upset the early buyers, and then the "Feminist Whore" issue ... more.
Batgirl #1 Review
0 CommentsPosted by Jeremy Conrad on September 7, 2011 under Comics, Reviews
No comic out of the New 52 has more controversy and nerd rage associated with it than Batgirl. Barbara Gordon, paralyzed by The Joker in The Killing Joke and taking on the mantle of Oracle in the Bat books suddenly able to walk again and is once again Batgirl? The rage over this change since it was announced nearly drowned out any of the good news about the DC comics relaunch. Thankfully, DC was s... more.
