Batman: Arkham Knight Review

Batman: Arkham Knight Review
Rocksteady Studios’ final outing in the Arkhamverse is packed with bombastic set-pieces, its own brand of bone-crunching (and now tyre-screeching) combat and a tale worthy of the best Batman comics, all set in the most stunningly realised Gotham City that’s ever existed on page or screen. The game itself looks gorgeous, with cutscenes switching seamlessly into the beautiful, dark world Rocksteady have brought to life. The attention to...

Bleach Series 15 Part 2 DVD Review
Recent months have seen the release schedule for Bleach become like buses on a rainy day. You wait hours for one only for several to come along at once.

But I digress, Series 15 Part 2 is the final part to the storyline that sees our heroes learning about the origins of the Mod-Souls whilst battling...
