Batman: Arkham Origins.

Today brought a deluge of new info on the next game in the 'Arkham' series (after Asylum and City) and I'm going to collect it all here, mainly because it wouldn't fit in a tweet!

There was a full length trailer:

Six new screenshots, including one that certainly answers one of my questions about the game:

aaaaaand, this interesting morsel:

Still a little bit apprehensive since the game isn't being developed by Rocksteady, the team resposible for the first two games but hey, hopefully it is in safe hands. The confirmation of Kevin Conroy to voice ol' Bats and Ron Perlman as Deathstroke makes me happy, anyway.

Until next time...

We're Back!

Hey, just a heads up.
Until we think of further use for this blog, I'm going to use it to collect together thoughts on new and upcoming games including trailers, screenshots and the like. I will encourage James to do the same.

First up... the new Batman game, Arkham Origins!

The Final Countdown!

This is it. We're in the last hour. We are going to end with a Rock Band performance but we are pretty knackered so there'll be no leaping about.

If you've supported us in any way, whether it be by donating, watching the videos, reading the blog or coming over to play with us... We sincerely thank you. If you still haven't donated, of course it is not too late. Click the 'Sponsor Us' link up top and let's try and get closer to the goal amount.

There'll be a few more posts after this one with stats and acknowledgements. So keep visiting. James and I haven't decided what to do with this site after the event ends so watch this space.

Anyway, head over to the live stream to watch us titting about with plastic instruments before we finally crash and sleep the sleep of the just.




So I played Episode 1 of The Walking Dead, and it was very good. I have to give props to my buddy Luke for lending it to me, and also for making this hideous, awesome picture:

More zombies now as James and I play House of the Dead: Overkill. Watch us on the LiveStream!


After several valiant attempts to get it working, the Saturn is refusing to play ball. Or more accurately refusing to play NiGHTS.

We've got the LiveStream back on though and I'm about to treat you to an over the shoulder view of me playing multiple 'best game of 2012' award winner - The Walking Dead!

Hope those of you who were watching enjoyed the very authentic experience of watching a PS3 do a software update.


Paul made an omelette whilst using a PSP. I played Mario on the 3DS. Seems fair!

World of Illusion

Finished! That took  a whole hour if that. That even includes attacking each other.

The Room

After completing Limbo in a timely 2 hours and 25 minutes I moved onto the room. Didn't do that as quickly. Head hurts...

Good Morning.

Yup, we are still going.

James has been struggling his way through iOS gem 'The Room', while I have been tearing a city apart in the Incredible Hulk; Ultimate Destruction (which just so happens to be my favourite game of all time).

Now we are about to kick it seriously old school with World of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. The oldest game on our list and one I remember fondly from 20-odd years ago.

See you in a bit. Thanks to all our sponsors so far!

Half Way There!

So, James won the Limbo contest. No, not that kind. That's the bad news. The GOOD news however is that we are now officially half way through our 25 hour gameathlon!
