Review: LEGO Batman

I won't lie to you: I'm a huge Batman fan. A Bat-freak, you might say. From collecting comics and watching The Animated Series ad infinitum to camping out for tickets to the midnight showing of new Bat-films (barring the Joel Schumacher travesties), if it's Batman, I'll give it a shot. So great is m...

Hands-on: RACE Pro

To say that Sweden-based developer SimBin is kind of good at creating simulation racers would be akin to saying that Shigeru Miyamoto has marginally influenced the direction of video games.

Preview: PlayStation Home pg2

Up next was the Game Space, a sprawling rec hall with pool tables, a bowling alley, and arcade games tucked away in a side area.
