While often overshadowed by Street Fighter, Darkstalkers is a pioneer to the Fighting genre. Although it’s missing the original Darkstalkers title, Darkstalkers Resurrection covers the HD re-release compilation of ‘Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge’ and ‘Darkstalkers 3’. This nostalgic release does not disappoint it’s unique cult following nor new fans to the series. Which is good ... more.

DC Universe Online can best be summarized as the console equivalent of World of Warcraft. You create a character, level up, there’s a monthly subscription fee, and you can easily forget to eat supper if you’re not careful. What separates this massive DC comic inspired game from WoW, however, is it was advertised not as an MMORPG but an MMOAG (Massive Multiplayer Online Action Game). But is thi... more.

In 2010, Hidetaka “Swery 65” Suehiro and Access Games released Deadly Premonition on the Xbox 360. It was an oddity at the time because it was a small budget title sold at a fraction of the price of more high-profile games. Through word of mouth, the quirky experience slowly amassed an underground following. It also holds a place in the Guinness World Record book for “Most Critically Polariz... more.

Demon's Souls is a game that had infamy even before it hit our shores. A PS3 exclusive released in the States at the end of 2009, it became known on gaming sites as a “take no prisoners” RPG. Now finally after more than 6 months it has officially been released in Australia, and you are in for one hell of a ride. Block off some time where there are no distractions and prepare some calming chamo... more.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a prequel/ reboot of the popular PC game from 1999. Also, it is the premiere project of the studio, Eidos Montreal, and has the publishing stamp of Square Enix on it. Combine all of these elements, plus the fact that the series has had very unflattering feedback whenever it migrated from a PC to a Console, and this new installment into the Cyberpunk Conspiracy Thriller... more.

DmC: Devil May Cry was a happy surprise for some this year. With early footage showing a radically different Dante and artstyle, the fan community screamed bloody murder all the way upto the game's release... as well as a month or so afterwards. But, the game has come out, and it is an absolute blast to play. DmC has breathed new life into the Devil May Cry series with stunning environment design,... more.

DmC: Devil May Cry has been the focus of a lot of vitriol for the past three years. When Capcom revealed that they were rebooting the series and handing the reins of the project over to UK based studio, Ninja Theory, creators of Heavenly Sword and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West respectively, the rage from the established fanbase was palpable. Plenty of arguments have arisen from this change, rangin... more.

Dragon Age II was always going to have a lot of expectation placed on it. After all Dragon Age: Origins received great reviews on all platforms and for good reason. It had a huge number of quests which could see you rack up 100 hours. The characters were varied, well fleshed out and well acted. The combat system gave the option of a hack and slash type affair but with strategic menus to open also.... more.

I have never understood someone who doesn't like RPG's. You create a character, face hordes of enemies becoming ever stronger as the story progresses, and save the day. What's not to like? I was disappointed with the last RPG I played on the PS3 in the form of Sacred 2, which promised much but delivered a flawed, shallow experience. I was eager to get my hands on Dragon Age as the developers Biowa... more.
