Bethesda Tells Press One day Advance is all You Need

bethesda-logo

Everyone knows the old phrase, “the pen is mightier than the sword.” While this could be completely accurate, I don’t think it would quite hold up in the world of Tamriel; though the creators of that world, Bethesda, do seem to agree and have decided to shield themselves by only releasing review copies to various media outlets just one day before launch. While many would cry out this is anti-consumer it’s quite a bit more complicated than that.

Arkham Asylum Review

arkham I spent the weekend completing Batman: Alcoholics Anonymous…err.. Arkham Asylum. I even went through and 100% it as well. And all I can say is this game is a hair shy of perfection.

The story is based around the capture and return of the Joker (voiced by Mark Hamill.) to Arkham Asylum. Batman (Voiced by Kevin Conroy.) accompanies him through the halls of Arkham during the opening credits.

Touch KO Review

Touch KO is a boxing game for the iPhone/iTouch platform released by Chillingo. A developer that has already released a laundry list of games into the App Store. Many of which are very good. Such as Zen Bound, MiniGore, iDracula and Bike or Die. Amongst many other titles. Luckily this game sites comfy in the good category of this studios list of games.

The game, if you couldn’t guess. Is boxing (shock shock). The flow of the game is smooth with no confusing parts or need to sit and configure a bunch of stuff. My opinion. This is important for portable games. If the game is too in depth it loses it’s appeal as a pick up and play title that you would site and play while waiting somewhere or just a quick time waster. Mobile games, in America anyways. Should stay simple and quick. I say America because As I observed in Japan. There train rides can be very long and a quick easy game just doesn’t cut it.
