Stop letting your kids play games they aren't old enough to play!

No mention of all the kids that get crippled by playing out WWE in there back gardens? it happens.

Until parents take control and responsibility for this shit it is always going to be an easy target.

I was thinking the other day I'm not sure I want there to be a film as it will end up shitting all over the franchise. I love the games and am enjoying the books, please don't soil my views with a crappy film.

It's just such an ugly controller. I was really hoping they would improve on the design for PS4 but it still seems to be the same, claw handed, uncomfortable pad they have always had. Just with a touch pad type do'dad.

Not had a Nintendo console since the Wii and that was for about 5 mins around the launch. I shall be getting myself a 3DS very soon I should think as the recent titles I'm hearing about are looking like damn good fun. Plus there are a few older titles I'd like to play too. Shame the WiiU isn't anywhere near as interesting.

Warner says a new Batman Arkham game will be out this year

L_Franko

5 years ago

AA was a fantastic game, one of my favourites. AC was fun but was nowhere near as good as the first. It felt like it was over in quarter of the time (the main game, anyway) and the rest was filled in with collectables. Lots and lots of collectables.
To be fair though, as long as the combat system is still in then then the new game can be set in a public toilet and I'll still enjoy it.
