Batman Arkham City Review


It is finally here. As the highly anticipated sequel to the highest rated superhero game ever, Batman Arkham City has had a lot of hype to live up to.

AYCG Podcast Episode #64: Arkham City Edition

OH Yeah! Arkham City is finally here and Jim and Mike have both got their hands on it, and tell you all about how amazing it is!!  Batman wasn’t the only thing that happened this week (even though it may feel that way), we heard that Michael Bay may still be directing the next Transformers movies.  Yes I said that correctly “movies” meaning two, and they will be done back to back.  Also, Halo gets Kinect(ed), the next Superman game may not suck, seems like everything is getting an online pass, and XBLA is getting some pretty awesome games very soon. Plus much much more!

Review: Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex: Human Revolution may have been released over a month ago but due to its recent DLC expansion and the fact that it is arguably the first of the big fall video game releases, I think it is worth a review. Also, I only recently finally beat it. Is this new installment in a venerated yet uneven franchise truly revolutionary? Read on to find out…
