While You Were Sleeping

Come on people, time to wake up! I've been up for ages. Time to find out all the gaming news that went down overnight. Wipe that sleep out of your precious little eyes and let's get kicking.

Well, Halo 4 is on its way -- in case you weren't aware -- and Microsoft is investing heavily. It's announced a live-action series that cost $5-10 million to make. That's a pretty big deal. I wonder if such a marketing driven piece of content is worth it in the long run?

Batman: Arkham City was probably one of my favourite games of 2011. Maybe my favourite, and I'm barely even a fan of Batman at all. Looks like a prequel may be on the cards for Rocksteady's next Batman game. I know 'gritty reboots' are almost hilariously cliche at this stage, but it's a direction I'd be interested in.

This is a pixelated version of The Big Lebowski, this new video game does incredible impressions of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, and you should really watch this awesome elderly couple bust a move on DDR.

    I think there's a distinction between prequel and reboot that you're missing there Mark (regarding Batman). It's the same continuity, but it's set before Arkham Asylum.
