My Thoughts: Gotham City Impostors Beta

So I logged on to Facebook the other day, and noticed I had a message, from none other than rollo 93. The message contained a link to the Eurogamer website, where codes for the Gotham City Imposters Beta were being given away. After recently playing Arkham Asylum and watching Batman Begins, and The Dark Knight, I have become a huge fan of the Caped Crusader, it’s probably my third favourite franchise. So I hastily made an account, and recieved my code.

Sonic Generations Xbox 360 Review

Right, so, hello. My first review. Well let’s get straight into it, shall we?

Sonic Generations

As soon as I first played Sonic Unleashed in 2008, it became the best game I’d ever played. And it managed to hold that spot for almost 3 years. But then came Sonic Generations. It kicked Unleashed off it’s throne, and it’s gonna take a damn good game to take it from Generations. On a side note, Unleashed still holds the title as best Wii game I’ve ever played, and considering the Wii is my favourite console, not a bad title.

So what’s so good about Generations? Allow me to demonstrate. Classic Sonic is running through Green Hill, on his way to kick Robotnik’s arse, when he’s sucked up by a creature known as the Time Eater. Meanwhile, 20 years in the future, Sonic is enjoying his birthday with his friends, when the same thing happens to them. Sonic ends up in a white void, with numerous places from his past, and most importantly, himself from the past. He must team up with his past self, to stop the Time Eater, and save the world, and his friends.  Continue reading
