Arkham Knight; this is a strange one to review. Depending on your format of choice results may vary, and vary wildly they will!

Rocksmith – good or bad?

A short argument for you this time around; Matty B and Raff argue about the validity of Edu-tainment titles – Rocksmith in particular. Is it better to learn guitar the old-fashioned way or will gaming technology raise the next generation of rock stars? M: So – here’s something that bothers me. Games which aren’t technically… Read more »
