Review - South Park: The Fracture But Whole

Everybody know the story of South Park by now and if you don't then you should really look it up as it is an amazing story of two people who took a holiday greeting video, with paper-cut stop motion video and made it into one of the most, if not the most, important cartoon experiences since the...

Review - Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor came out of nowhere and quickly claimed its rightfully place as many gamers and gaming websites' number one game back in 2014. It was also one of my personal favourites that year. It wasn't the story that made it so compelling but the “nemesis system” which they...

Review - Unbox: Newbie's Adventure

  As far as I can tell this is Prospect Games first release, and I always find it interesting to check out a fresh developer teams first game so I jumped on the opportunity to check out Unbox: Newbie's Adventure. The title in itself really didn't tell me anything but a few gameplay trailers...

Review - Agents of Mayhem

From the creators of Saints Row we get a new and action packed game. It is more of a crossover to be fair but putting the two up against each other you can clearly see these are two separate games. So how could this be bad? Well, the only problem is that with the success of Saints Row 3 and...

Batman Arkham Knight Enters At Number One In Latest Charts

Created on Monday, 29 June 2015

Batman Arkham Knight becomes No1 in its first week and best-selling title in first week of 2015


Warner’s ‘Batman Arkham’ series is back with a bang as the fourth instalment ‘Batman Arkham Knight’ transitions to PS4/Xbox One and becomes the new No1(knocking Warner’s No1 from last week ‘Lego Jurassic World’ down to No2).

‘Batman Arkham Knight’ is also the week 1 best-seller for the franchise (previously held by 2011’s 2nd instalment Batman Arkham City) and also becomes the week 1 best-seller this year so far, comfortably beating previous week 1 best-seller ‘The Witcher 3’.

Batman AK dev duty was handed back to Rocksteady in the UK, the lead developer for all Arkham games except the third instalment (2013’s Batman Arkham Origins) and this is also the first Arkham game to get a Tuesday ‘event’ day launch in the UK. This is Warner’s 4th No1 this year (Dying Light, MK X, Lego Jurassic World, Batman AK) - the last time a publisher had at least 4 No1 hits in the first half of the year was back in 2012 (EA with FIFA12, Kingdoms of Amalur, SSX, Mass Effect 3 and Fifa Street).

The first half of 2015 closes with a few other new releases: Nintendo’s Wii U ‘Yoshi’s Woolly World’ gets off to a great start at No4, Square Enix debut at No10 with ‘Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward’ for PS4 & PC, PQube and Milestone debut at No13 with multi-format ‘MotoGP 15’ and Bandai Namco complete the Top 40 new entries at No18 with ‘J-Stars Victory VS+’ for Sony formats.
