It seems fitting to feature the soundtrack to Batman: Arkham City on April 1st. It is after all referred to as April Fool’s Day, and what better day to talk about a game that features the Clown Prince of Crime, the Joker? I’m sure it’s one of his favorite days, so in his honor (does he have any?!) and that of the day, let’s discuss the fantastic soundtrack to this universally acclaimed action game. Take a listen to it right below and feel the sweeping, epic orchestral music that swells from your speakers:

It’s Valentine’s Day, and even for gamers, love is in the air. Even if it’s just on screen, the digital world has seen its fair share of couples and love-based storylines. To honor this heart-shaped candy focused day, we thought we’d count down the Top 10 gaming couples. We’ve done something like this before, but since we’re a Mac-centric blog this time it will of course skew towards relationships that Mac gamers can enjoy (though there are a few non-Mac relationships just too good to leave out!). Grab a box of chocolates and enjoy our tribute to an affectionate bond that can occur between two people. (more…)
Being a Mac gamer just got a whole lot better. Again.
Today marks the arrival of yet another top-notch triple-A title arriving on the Mac–Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition! Brought to you by Feral Interactive, this epic follow-up to the fantastic Batman: Arkham Asylum takes everything that was great about the original and somehow improves on it in almost every single way.
No longer confined to the limited facilities of Arkham Asylum, players now have a whole city to explore in this open-world evolution. Batman also has a few new tricks up his sleeve to aid players in getting around the enormous environments, including liberal use of the Batclaw and glide-and-dive-bomb techniques!
Not only is getting around the environment easier than ever, Batman also brings several gadgets to the table to help him take out the crazed and violent inmates of Arkham City. Favorites like the Batarang and explosive gel return, plus players get to try all-new tools like flash-freeze grenades and an electric pulse gun! All will be necessary in your attempt to stop the evil that lurks behind the Arkham City project.
Of course the top-notch combat system also returns, allowing players to pull off combos and counter moves without breaking a sweat. The game truly captures what it feels like to be Batman.

Welcome back readers! Now that we’ve gotten the worst out of the way, let’s take time to celebrate the best Batman-related adventures the gaming world has to offer.
