When I had the grand idea to do a bodybuilding competition, the last thing I expected was that it would somehow tie into video games. While I've been playing since I was some moronic child and the SNES was my be-all-and-end-all, I never presumed that interest would merge into my love for fitness. It was so nonsensical I didn't even give it a thought.

FeatureWhat Zelda can learn from Skyrim

Because you can teach an old dog new tricks.

While the original Legend Of Zelda was definitely a pioneer in terms of a game being set in an open world, it's the upcoming Breath of the Wild where the series has truly embraced what the genre is known for today. With a sweeping landscape and the always appealing selling point of 'if you see it, you can travel there', in many ways it's brand new territory for Nintendo. And with that comes a lot of anticipation, excitement and intrigue.

With the release of Batman: Return to Arkham bringing Rocksteady's first two Batman games to PS4 and Xbox One, we felt it might be time to take a look back and get a sense of the studio's achievements with these wonderful superhero adventures.

A quick Google search for Batman: Arkham VR will result in one underlying opinion: it's too short. While Rocksteady's take on a virtual reality version of The Dark Knight does only clock in at just over an hour, such a thought process is overlooking a crucial fact: five minutes in Batman's shoes is a hundred times better than an entire life in anyone else's. I would make that trade in a heartbeat.
