The available games are: Zombies, Ninja Blade, Unstoppable Gorg, and Superstar V8 Next Challenge. Visit this link for more info.

  • NEWS: There’s some very bad news for Queensland gamers who were hoping to get their hands on God of War: Ascension when it releases next month. The game will not be available for purchase in the state, due to Queensland’s failure to pass its local legislation for the new national R18+ rating, which the game has been presented with.
  • VIDEO: Sony have released a behind the scenes video for the “From Ashes” trailer that they recently released for God of War: Ascension. A fair bit of work goes into a production like that, and you can see for yourself a bit of what went on.

  • NEWS: Speaking of bad news, along with their announcement that Rayman Legends will no longer be a Wii U exclusive, Ubisoft have also revealed that the Wii U version will be delayed. By almost 7 months. The game will be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U in September this year.
  • NEWS: Rumours and reports about the next Xbox and PlayStation consoles are rife at the moment. The lastest one concerning the PlayStation 4 involves an evolved version of the PlayStation Eye camera peripheral. Apparently it will make use of a pair of cameras, and will be able to recognise the user, then log them in. It would be bundled with every console.
